I guess I read more than I thought I do. And it’s true that you never really appreciate something until something interferes and shows you yet another thing you’ve been taking for granted.
As for me, I shan’t take my nose for granted any longer. I’ve always been grateful that I could smell, and I’ve always been grateful that I could sneeze (there’s nothing so exhilarating than a series of well timed sneezes), but I’ve never before been thankful for the important part my nose plays in holding my reading glasses in place. Yesterday morning, I realized that my right side of my face was bothering me; it took a little while to figure out that it only bothered me when I read. And it took a little longer to realize that the reason it bothered me is because my face created one of those large undercover pimples that sit deep under the skin and are hard to see but hurt like the dickens, and it’s *RIGHT* on the bridge where my reading glasses sit. So I’m hoping this is a fast moving pimple that has more important places to go.
And before you wake up, I’ll mention that I really really really like the book, Lorna Doone. I’ve been on a book buying frenzy lately, but for some reason I checked this one out at the library instead having Amazon send it to me. But this is definitely a book that I need to own and then I’m going to force everybody in my family (and several of my friends) to read it. I love it. It is absolutely worth the zit-nose suffering.
In non face blemish / book news, check this out:
Coie is almost completely done with the quilt she is making for the Bluedorn Ball and Benefit Auction. Isn’t it lovely? And I’m really having a bit of a hard time because look how well it looks sitting on top of my cozy white comforter – and it even matches my picture on the wall, which, incidentally, Coie and her dad got me ten years ago for Christmas. I think that quilt might be meant for my room. And that makes me nervous because the last time Coie made a quilt to be auctioned off I ended up paying $250 to keep it. And this year, I just aint don’t got no extra $250.
