|Thor Drives a Hummer; Film at Eleven

This afternoon, there were strips of cloud with chevron patterns, like gigantic white tire tracks across the sky. They turned a lovely pink for sunset. Autumn normally brings some of the year's best sunsets here, but there have been fewer than usual this November. I think it must be due to the unusual clarity of the skies, which is in turn probably related in some way to the uncommon cold. |
And, speaking of uncommon colds, I'm not sure if I've got one or not. Wednesday, I woke with clogged head, but no other symptoms. I though it was the result of having left the heater vent open while I slept, so I didn't take anything for it. Thursday, I was sneezing and having chills and queasiness, so I began taking aconite. Today, its just a scratchy throat and a bit of coughing, and the feeling that I'm just about to sneeze, but I don't. I've continued dosing myself with aconite, so that might have worked (though it usually gets rid of all the symptoms right away.) Or maybe it wasn't a cold at all. Maybe it is just a reaction to the seasonal mold which grows in the damp earth and the fallen leaves. The whole place smells of it, especially now that the front lawn has been raked.
Anyway, it's still uncomfortable sitting in a cold room, so no more Sluggo for now. I will go watch the television, which doesn't mind working in a warm environment.
