… and believe me I am still alive

Thankful Thursday

[a not-always-weekly exercise in gratitude]

1) Shared laughter and delight.

2) A friend dropping off Seanan McGuire’s new book, A Local Habitation.

3) I’m continuing to go for short walks every day, supplemented with leg lifts and extra stairs.  It’s not getting easier fast, but it’s not getting harder, either.

4) Amazon had chocolate-covered cashewson sale. They’re expensive enough I don’t get them often, but they’re a fun treat for work.

5) I finished our taxes over a month early! Why yes we are getting a refund! We also finished refinancing our house, so lower payment and less interest! I am now done with nitpicky financial stuff for a while!  :)

More info on #2: Realized it might be good to say that while I’ve linked to Seanan McGuire’s music in the past, she is also an author. Rosemary and Rue and A Local Habitation are the first two books in her fae detective series; the first book of a different trilogy, Feed, will be released under the name Mira Grant in April.

    How ridiculously good is A Local Habitation. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    1. I totally agree with you!!!

      I’m from London so am pretty lucky to have purchased it before the actual release for which the UK peeps is 8th April. Thank God for the Book Depository. It was delivered on Friday and i devoured it waaay too quickly!

      I luuurve TYBALT!

  2. I also recently bought the chocolate-covered cashews, in an order with some books, so I got free shipping. I guess great minds think alike. :-) And thanks for some new books to check out.

  3. I can’t find a contact section to ask you a question, so I hope you won’t mind if I ask it here. Have you ever heard of getting calluses between the buttocks or on the upper thigh just below the buttocks? I have to sit a lot, and I wonder if the pressure is causing a callus. I notice a difference in the texture of the skin when I shower. I have googled and googled and can’t find anything.

    1. There is an email address but hey, this works too. :) I’ve run into callouses where my legs rub together in summer but not due to sitting.
