On The Mend

I’m finally starting to feel better, which is a nice change. Breathing is a bit easier, and my throat and ears don’t hurt so much, although I have developed a bit of a cough.

Mostly what I did for the past few days was read and sleep. I found the ebook part of my local library’s website, and I rediscovered a series that I’d enjoyed before, only now there are more books in it. It’s a murder-mystery series by Alan Bradley. The main character is Flavia DeLuce, and she’s bold and smart and very interested in poisons. She is highly entertaining and has her own chemistry lab, and she’s 11. I read everything that’s out so far, and I can’t wait for the next one… except I’ll have to, because it’s not due out until January ’15.

Mar just discovered the Faerie’s Air and Death Waltz.

He also found a YouTube video of people crazy enough to try to play it. Go to about 3:00.

I was in band for 6 years, so I can kind of read that. It scares me a little.

P.S. I don’t remember if I mentioned, but Ben’s teeth are out and he’s fine. The permanent tooth that was behind them looks like it might be moving forward, but teeth move at such a glacial pace that I can’t be entirely sure.

P.P.S. I also received my Bandelettes in the mail yesterday, and so far I’m impressed. I think I might have ordered them a touch too big, but I could be wrong. They’re comfortable and they haven’t fallen down, and I think they’ll work out great. Excited to feel well enough to try them out.
