A cure for insomnia

I had a wonderfully relaxed couple of days. Yesterday I first did some chores like the laundry and financial administration, and in the afternoon I went out. The weather was truly lovely, sunny and mild. I could sense spring waiting around the corner.

I posted some letters and took old paper and glass to the container to be recycled. At the chemist's I bought a large jar of Omega 3-6-9 capsules at 50% off. Let's see if they are any good.

When I came home again I put on a CD, burned an incense stick (something I had not done for a long time), and curled up on the couch with my beloved STW. I read on until 6, and then I started cooking dinner, because I wanted to watch an early movie. It turned out to be a rather silly film, but I doubletasked in the mean time by folding laundry and sorting out my overflowing socks drawer. A lot of those socks were ready for the dump: elastic gone, etc. By the time the film was finished, the drawer was looking organized again. I felt so accomplished. ;)

After watching Never mind The Buzzcocks and Six feet under I tried to catch up on lj, but succeeded only halfway, and I went to bed at 1:15.

This morning I rearranged some of my books and in the afternoon I went out again. Though beautifully sunny, it was much colder than yesterday, due to the wind. The shopping mall was nice and warm though. Some of life's necessities were on special offer, and I made good use of that. The money I saved on those necessities I immediately splurged tenfold on a lovely, luxurious L'Occitane cleansing fluid, but hey. Nothing's too good for my extremely hard-to-please skin. Besides I was given some samples of other products I was interested in.

When I came home this afternoon, I had a smoked salmon sandwich, and then much the same ritual as yesterday: incense and STW. When I finished a chapter, I went on to read lj. The catching up took so long that I did not start dinner until 20:45, which made me late for the rest of the evening, but never mind.

I am now seriously contemplating having an early night, after trying out all the lovely new products, of course! It's probably a good idea, because my neighbour has some furniture delivered tomorrow, and those delivery guys usually show up really early.

Happy Halloween

to all who celebrate it!

I tricked heartofdavid out of this:

A headless skeleton! Wait a minute, you did not
need that body to begin with. You are good and
well off on your own. You can take care of
yourself. You seem to be one who is 'detached'
from society and doing what you think are good
or right things. No, you are not one of those
people who think that they can do whatever they
want. You just do not follow 'everydayness' and
common beliefs and norms. If you are not doing
so now, you plan on living alone one day, away
from everyone so that you can be at peace with
yourself and surroundings. You do not dislike
everyone. You only like to be in a serene
atmosphere. Despite all of this, you still
enjoy being in touch with close people. You are
a different and interesting person, you are.
Happy Halloween, Detached Figure.

Yes, I would say that sounds like me. :)

More quotes from The Diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner:

They [David and Ray Garnett] were extremely funny in church, walking about with an air of the utmost suspicion, as though at any moment a Bishop might appear and lay violent confirming hands on them. Indeed, as we were about to enter and the Reverend Flabby's voice was heard addressing some tourists, they started back as though a lion roared. (9 July 1929)

'Perhaps you will be composing again when you are eighty-five?' I said that at 85 I should be taking up monumental sculpture. (23 October 1929)
