I am drinking a cup of peppermint tea and wearing an herbal pack around my head like a bandanna. Earlier Rama walked by and called me “Tonto” so I can only imagine how ridiculous I must look.
This is the time of year that I always want to do a million and one things and my body doesn’t let me.
Something about the cooler days really inspires me. Maybe it’s that natural urge to hibernate, to hole yourself up in a warm spot and keep yourself busy. I think Keri said something similar earlier this month, and I think there’s truth to it.
Unfortunately, I tend to go overboard and then my body repays me with an unfriendly reminder in the form of sore throats and headaches.
So tonight, I’m responding, Okay, body. I get it. I’m taking a break. (After I write here) I’m turning off the computer, refilling my cup with tea and parking myself on the sofa with a book.
