Hi guys, and happy Friday Eve! I am warm, clean, and smelling like lavender oil from my bath. Today, I didn’t do much besides clean my flat and lay in bed with a heating pad wrapped around my tummy (sorry if that’s TMI, but being a woman has its necessary pains.)
I had planned to visit the Met Cloisters today, because I absolutely love the medieval museum’s architecture and strangeness. But I just didn’t have the energy for it, and I didn’t want to force anything. So I stayed home and enjoyed it very much!
I left the house around 9 AM to buy cat food, and the weather was stunning. I expected the New York winter to be truly unforgiving, and it has been at certain times, but today it was a perfect winter day. The sun was out, but it was still cold and crisp. Even now, I have my window open and am feeling the chilly air on my skin, which is still hot from my bath.
I made pesto and pasta for dinner (yum) and am now brewing some tea (oh no, I almost let it over steep!) Tonight, I plan to continue my relaxing mood and write in my journal.
I hope that you are all also enjoying the simple pleasures in life, regardless of what imperfections abound in all of our lives. Today I feel blessed to be a part of lives of truly special individuals who make me feel safe and secure, even when the world seems to be getting wilder and wilder.
Thanks for your time in reading this! XO,
