This week (along with writing one and half chapters for Dancing the Maypole) I went to see my friend Debbie Webbie and met her puppy Chin Chin who’s eight months old. I also managed to do some Christmas shopping and took some photos of the snow. I can’t believe how well I feel. Compared to the end of October (when I started taking pills for my thyroid along with a large number of vitamins) I feel like a champion athlete. I can walk into town and back again every other day without feeling like I’m going to die. More importantly, I can think again. For the whole of September and October I swear my skull was housing a cabbage. I sat here watching tv murder mysteries for hours on end on You-tube, unable to think. I know I’m not well when I watch or read lots of murder mysteries; I find them comforting. It harks back to my teenage years when every Sunday my sister Becky and I would sit up after the family had gone to bed and watch murder mysteries on Masterpiece Theater. So it’s been a good week and I wanted to share some of my favorite photos. The first three are Chin Chin and Debbie Webbie. The rest of mostly today. I had to take some books back to the library so I got the Goblin some cookies and wandered around looking weird in my double knit hats. Because I have a red coat I refuse to wear my red hat alone or my black knit hat. I don’t want the little kids to think Santa has mutated into some scary looking woman! The double hat also keeps my head really warm…and I like how it looks. I wear my long hair up in a bun underneath which makes the knit stand up so I sort of look like I have one of those elongated skulls the Egyptian royalty used to give their children. I like it!
