blog #221 >> Feeling Restless

I just can't seem to focus on anything today! I couldn't focus on getting ready this morning. I couldn't focus on work and did my level best to leave a little early. I couldn't even focus on thrifting at Goodwill today. I'm going to blame it on the wind and the cold. Yes, the wind... and also the cold. The wind rattled the window by my head all night long and I didn't sleep very well. And when I did sleep I was having strange dreams about the wind blowing through the windows. Around midnight, I finally had enough and stuffed the first bits of cardboard into the windows to try to get it to stop. But it didn't, and the other window still rattled pretty good. Then the heater was still broken at work today and it was like "Arctic Monday" similar to "Casual Friday" but everyone wears their coats and scarves. (Thankfully, I think they already fixed the heat for tomorrow.) Then after work Mary and I went to Goodwill but it was really crowded. The parking lot and overflow lot were both full and it was really picked over inside. So I came home. And I still can't focus on anything!
I think I'm going to go stuff more cardboard in my bedroom windows.

Anyhow, does anyone have any good winter recipes?
I'd like to try something new.

I might have some on my recipe blog but I'm too tired to think about what recipes I have on my blog right now. :o) I hope your focus comes back tomorrow!

I've had days like that. Just give it some time. Everything will slide into place.
