My sister called me this afternoon and asked me why I sounded all plugged up and I said that I was either getting a cold or it was my allergies, and she asked me if I had any antihistamines and I remembered that I did and she said for me to take them, because then I would know soon enough if I was dealing with allergies, so I did and after some time my headache got better and I was less congested, so it is allergies. Smart sister, right? Why didn't I think of that?

Luckily, these aren't the kind of antihistamines that make you drowsy, so I didn't feel the need to take a nap. All I had to do was wait for the weather to improve, so that I could walk the Überhund and run my errands. Every once in a while the rain stopped and I could go out.

First I had to go to the grocery store to buy those aubergine trash bags and a package of heavy tobacco, with which I made the cigarettes that I'm smoking now and they taste good and not at all chokingly suffocating like I thought they might. They are actually very pleasant to smoke. So I think I will be buying that tobacco from now on. You're all going, "Oh no, not only is she not going to quit, she is even going to smoke heavier cigarettes." Well, I am a connoisseur.

Then I had to wait for the next dry spell and go to the pharmacy to pick up some medication and that was done quickly enough by riding through some big puddles and trying to hit all the green lights, but that didn't work out, so I ran one red one. Luckily, there was no policeman around, because you get a 60 Euro ticket for that one, so it's advisable not to do it.

When I got home, I piled all the dirty dishes in the sink, squirted detergent on them and ran hot water in the sink until it was full and then went off to do something else. By the time I got back, the hot water had disappeared and the dishes are still sitting there waiting for me to do them. Tomorrow is another day.

I went around the kitchen and the living room and picked up big balls of dog hair, because the Überhund is shedding again like crazy. I moved furniture and got what was laying underneath them. It's a never ending battle and fills my vacuum cleaner bags in no time.

So far today I have eaten cream crackers and a tin of mackerel. I never did get around to making the soup and it's too late now. I may have some rusk toast in a while with jam. I have a little bit of jam left and I'm not buying a new jar, unless I can get sugar free jam, which will cost an arm and a leg, because those things always do.

I wrote another 6S's for the main site of 6S and completely made it up. I did not draw on any past experience, but the problem is that some of the people who leave comments think that I do, so I have to point out that it's purely fiction. A lot of 6S's are ego documents and I'm trying to get away from that.

Now I'm awfully tired and I'm going to get my pajamas on and get comfortable on the sofa. It's been a long day and I've been up since 7 AM. I feel the sleepiness creep into my body.

Have a good warm evening, very cozy and comfortable.

Correct my spelling for me, please.
Wishing you a wonderful tomorrow.

And here was I waiting for Tipperary to come into it????

The Finely Tuned Woman said...

Gail, thank you, I wish you a wonderful tomorrow also. Don't worry about your spelling. I've done worse myself.

Mary, there was no Tipperary, I just couldn't think of a good title and thought, what the heck!

Maggie May said...

Thought you'd been to Ireland! Waiting for the Tipperary!

Have wakened to another cold, stormy, foul day! I expect your weather is much the same.
Wrap up warm, Irene, if you go out. X

The Finely Tuned Woman said...

Maggie, I haven't been to Ireland yet, but I plan to one of these days and to England, of course.

It's overcast but silent here. No wind and no rain yet. I know it's coming, though. XXX

Irene you did make me smile today, the thought that the fear of an 80 Euro ticket is worse than BEING RUN OVER because you ran a red light!!, and the fact that those dishes didn't wash themselves. Have another great day today. :)

The Finely Tuned Woman said...

Softinthehead, I did make sure there was no traffic coming, although I guess you can always come in for a surprise.

Yes, those dishes, it was a chore to wash them this morning, although they did have a bit of a soak.

Very good day, from the sound of it. And that's what sisters are for. They know things like that. That's why we have them.

The Finely Tuned Woman said...

Omega Mum, sisters can be quite handy at times, although at other times they can be a pain in the you know what.
