What a Great Day!

I felt as lousy today as I have for the past four or so, rather unable to do much other than sit in a reclining chair and look at TV when my blood cooperated enough for my eyes to stay open. Still, I had made arrangements with my tennis pal Amy to start cooking again, and I wanted to give it a shot. The adrenaline that comes with social situations can give me some kick for a while, after all.

I had expressed interest in rehashing the first recipe we ever tried, which has already been discussed on this blog. It was great. We got the same fish from the same place, and with all the vegetables at their prime at this time of year, we really couldn't miss. Best meal ever... well, at least when combined with the fabulous ice cream cones from the Daily Scoop up the road from here. They make good ice cream to be sure, but their cones are the best I've ever had. Super fresh and with optional dark chocolate dip that doesn't reduce the crunch at all. That's some serious coneageā„¢.

I also finished the final installment in the Harry Potter series today, which was the first novel I've been able to read in about two years. What a great book. I really feel like the last four books added so much more substance than the first three, and HP 7 added so many great lessons and inventive angles on life and death that I was not just satisfied, but touched on a meaningful level.

All in all, a great day despite my seriously poor health of late. I may pay tomorrow, but that's alright too.

I'm Moved!

Hooray! I finally got moved into the little house next door. It's still messy and I didn't get as much help as I would have liked to fully fix things up ahead of time, but hopefully it'll all come together in time. I really appreciate the help I got with cleaning up the cabinets and windows and such. It's sooo nice being over here too. I am somewhat concerned that the musty smell may be giving me fairly intense sinus headaches though... I hope I'm wrong.

I'm supposed to do a website for a small business shortly as well. I don't know if I can manage that or not what with all I've been up to lately. Final exams, medical tests, moving... it's all rather tiring on a variety of levels. All in all, I'm not sure where I'm headed next, but it's nice to be able to ponder the future in a new living space, that's for sure.
