This was a rough weekend…I did not feel well on Saturday.  It’s not even a feeling I can describe…it’s just a general feeling of malaise…exhaustion…boredom.  I think it’s all of those things.  I stayed in the apartment on Saturday…I couldn’t even venture going downstairs.  The only thing that felt good was the absence of all movement.  I read…I watched TV…I slept…my body needed to restore itself.  It’s just so hard to explain the exhaustion.  I need to move but I can’t.  I want to keep still until I feel better.  And keeping still is the only thing that makes me feel better.  But…I felt better on Sunday and even better today.  We zipped to Terrain and bought our tree this morning…a sweet little Noble Fir again.  It took us minutes to find it and minutes to set it up.  In between was a quick trip to Wegman’s and Chick Filet.  Den loved his sandwich…I did not like mine.  Something was seriously wrong with my chicken.  Den made me cheese toast as soon as we got home…yum!  Wegman’s Mieche Sourdough Bread toasted just the right way in our Wolfie…and two really great sharp cheddar cheese slices on top…slightly melting!  And a beautiful lemonade made Den’s way…with an entire half lemon squeezed in over tons of ice.  I love Den’s cooking!


I finished this and it was seriously good…clever, sarcastic, fun, and surprising.  I loved it!


New books from Edelweiss…

I just started this one…it appears as though it’s going to be a bit funny as well as a good book.


We are having a balmy day today but a cold chilling wind is blowing in!  It’s supposed to be freezing for the next few days!

I am ready to rest and read my afternoon away!

    I can only imagine what you’re going through and I’m glad you’re feeling better. Everyone here but me adores Chick Fil-A – I just don’t get the fascination with that place. Of course, I’m not much of a fast food person at all, so that could be part of it. Your new books look great!

    I’m so glad you’re feeling better today… and Den’s cheese toast sounds positively heavenly! We were at Wegmans this afternoon, too. Got groceries for the week and some pecan crusted tilapia to cook for dinner. Your books look good. I’m read another Anthony Trollope novel now, but the new Elin Hilderbrand just came from the library. Can’t wait to start it!

      Wegman’s was a zoo but I really needed that Meiche Sourdough. It makes the best toast. Have you tried their rotisserie chickens yet? We love them. I am going to start the New Elin one again…mine came from the library, too, and give it a better chance this time!


      • lakesidemusing says:

        Yes, we love their rotisserie chickens! I bought one yesterday… a short-cut for the chicken, tomato, and barley soup I’m going to make this morning. Hope you have better luck with Winter in Paradise this time.

        We used to only buy the organic ones but they were never browned and did not taste as good. One of the butchers said that the not organic ones are bribed and filled with flavor. Today it’s chicken sandwiches on that sourdough loaf! I am going to be more open minded about that book.

    I like the look of The Library of Lost and Found, we all go for books and libraries in titles. I’ll wait though to see what you think. Good that you felt like going out and getting your tree.

    I am so happy to hear that you are feeling better and are able to eat a more varied menu. I have started reading “The Adults” on your comments, it is quite different and entertaining so far.
