in a nutshell… me

Ah… one week until all finals will be over, all peer reviews conducted, all research papers turned in, for better or worse. I have a mountain of work still to accomplish, bits here and there adding up to a task that is too insurmountable for my migraine-weakened brain to process this morning. I am fine per se, but still woozy after yesterday’s bout against the pain, nausea and reaction to the meds. So instead of being surrounded by the work, organized into color-coded stacks with appropriate highlighters standing by, I am not even AT my bitty table in my bitty kitchen. Instead, I find myself on the couch, in the softly lit living room. Fairy lights twinkling, soft music seeping from the Bose… Charlie Brown Christmas to soothe the last shred of headache away. As a treat, I made French Press a bit ago, and the warm sootiness is gritty on my molars, flavor exploding in my mouth like 4th of july… =) A berry red blanket is wrapped around my shoulders, and I am clothed in soft, grey fleece. The tiny tree is lit, and the small pile of presents under it beckon me with all the pretty wrappers. Legs extended on ottoman, laptop perched on another blanket, this one a creaky white. As I gaze around my decently sized living room, the only big room in the house, I feel content. Everything is just so, smells good with candle burning and carpet cleaned yesterday with baking soda. A place to relax. MY place. And I feel the tension loosen it’s grip from my shoulders…

You all know me pretty well by now, but sometimes it is good to share, give a little glimpse about things you may not know. After yesterday’s long and revealing post, I didn’t think I had anything left to say about myself. But wait a second, I guess I do. =) I love those list posts that you all make, they are just fun and interesting. So I thought I would just give you a few words describing myself, or things that interest me, or are meaningful to me on one level or another. Because I know you can’t ever get enough of me… lol !!
