Well, it’s my day off and instead of getting to enjoy it, I’m home with a super-sore throat. I’ve been laying in bed all morning watching episodes of Lie to Me. I suppose it’s not a terrible way to spend a day off. I just hope it doesn’t get any worse. No insurance + no sick days = bad news bears. I know I should go out and get some medicine, but there’s snow outside and I’d have to clear off my car and well, my bed is just so warm and comfy.
I started my first book of 2011 this week. My friend, Erin, let me borrow her copy of Lucky. It’s by Alice Sebold, the author of The Lovely Bones, one of my favorite books. I haven’t seen the movie yet; I heard it wasn’t very good. The book was incredible though. Lucky is Sebold’s true account of when she was raped in college. While it starts off rather gruesome and intense, it was difficult to put the book down. I read at least 100 pages within the first day of having it, and with my day off, I might just finish it today. So far, I would highly recommend it and if you haven’t read The Lovely Bones, read it.
I completed recipe 2/52 on Monday and will hopefully post it later today. It was the perfect meal for a cold winter night. For now though, it’s time to lay back down and do nothing (and eventually venture out and get some meds).
