first Sidestreets excursion and the one on the right is from the second one.
It's been something of a weird day today... after tempting fate on Sunday morning by saying that I almost never get sick, I started feeling somewhat off in the evening (I'm still not sure why... I only really ate a couple of things (neither of which should have had an adverse reaction on my system) after Ma left, but just felt all conjested and "throaty" as the night went on. I'm still not back to 100%, but I am feeling better than I was.
And I got a very odd envelope in the mail this morning too... a set of eight Christmas cards (plus two bookmarks and a pocket calendar) from the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists... it was one of those "charity" letters I get occasionally, it was just the number of cards (and before I opened it, the thickness of the envelope) that threw me... now one or two cards, to show off their work, I can understand... but EIGHT? And they're not bad either... not totally my tastes, but I'll pass them along to Ma, I'm sure she can make use of them.
Oh, and my old "Countdown to Sydney" counter disappeared over the weekend (the website just ceased to be), so I did find a new one... although it's only counting down to the day, not the time... and it seems to not only be half an hour out, but also have this weird thing when it's before the half hour, the "hour" count is right, but after the half hour the hour drops by one for no reason... weird. But it'll do, since it's mostly the days I'm worried about anyway.
Now if only the change would come in and the weather would cool down, then I'd be a happy yani...
