Happy Continuing October! (Hummingwolf Today)
Now wearing: A fuzzy purple sweater I've never worn before, a pair of dark blue jeans, warm beige socks, black athletic shoes with bright pink trim, boring underwear, and that pair of glasses I've been saying for years need to be replaced.
Now seeing: Too much dust in my room.
Now feeling: Warm. We just turned on the furnace for the first time this year last night, and the thermostat had a little issue after it lost power earlier today, and now the house is about five degrees warmer than we had planned to heat it to. Nobody's really complaining about the warmth, but we do want to avoid spending too much money on heating oil this year...
Also feeling tired, sniffly, and achy. There's a good chance I'll be sneezing soon.
Now smelling: Garlic, for some reason.
Now tasting: Mint from the toothpaste I just brushed with.
Now hearing: Computer fan, clacking keyboard, and muffled sounds of distant traffic.
Last meal eaten: A "Buffalo-style" blue cheese burger followed by somebody else's french fries.
Most exciting thing done today: Well, it's Thursday, so I went to a farmers' market. Hooray!
Song in my head: Siouxsie & the Banshees, "Kiss Them for Me."
CDs in my CD player:
1. The Nine Inch Nails album that came out last month, Hesitation Marks
2. A Nine Inch Nails EP from more than 20 years ago, Broken
3 & 4. My Fabulous Plum and My Lemonade Stand, two children's albums from Peter Himmelman
Just a little bit of contrast there, I suppose. Needs more flugelhorn.
Number of books read this year so far: 105. Just don't ask how many of those were children's picture books.
Items purchased at farmer's market: Rome apples, the season's last field-grown tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, unpasteurized lacto-fermented sauerkraut, and something else I'm forgetting. Y'know, once I start blanking on food, it's probably time to go to bed. Good night, world!
