So I should no longer be cold when I go outside, which means I had no excuse for not going to the cafe this morning, except that I'm leaving town tomorrow and I have a fair number of small things to do around the house before I go. So I'm declaring today a break from writing, and will focus on reading instead. I finished The Amulet of Samarkand this morning, fun, and I started poet Meena Alexander's engrossing memoir, Fault Lines, yesterday, and am hoping to finish it today so I have one fewer book to carry on the plane. I like to travel light.
It's also awfully grey and icky out today, making me disinclined to go out. I will go to the gym, though. Beyond that, I plan to huddle in here, where it's nice and warm and I can keep my fleece slippers on.
Oh, and in case you were worried, it wasn't skin cancer. Just a rash. Apparently, I have sensitive skin -- who knew? :-)
