I have a vicious sinus headache that's been with me since I woke up yesterday, and last night I accidentally left the refrigerator open, and pretty much everything has to go. So, pain and annoyance. And wasted food.

It's sunny today, and the temperature is currently 82˚F. Someone on Twitter was wondering why I'm so "obsessed" with the weather. Why wouldn't I be? I do not exist independently of the weather. My head is jacked directly into it. My moods swing in almost perfect synchronization with the weather.

Yesterday, despite the headache, I actually managed to write 2,084 words on Agents of Dreamland. I'm now a mere 3,331 words from THE END. In theory, I could finish by tomorrow evening, if I could have another day like yesterday. However, I don't expect to. I expect the end to be difficult. But I shouldn't have any trouble finishing by Thursday evening.

I'm relieved, perhaps a little prematurely.

Yesterday, one year ago, we arrived in Birmingham. It's hard to believe it's been a year since I was in Leeds. I'm so very homesick. And to compound that we're talking about possibly remaining in Providence another year. Another year means another winter, and I simply don't know how I'll manage that.

Both comments and overall traffic to this journal are at an all-time low.

Time to work.

Another year here
My mate, Mary Esther, and I are going to be here for a few more years for sure because we own the house.

If you feel like it, and I already asked Mary Esther, you and Spooky can come for dinner here one evening. If you wanted to stay overnight, we have a guest room upstairs with a full bed and a full bath too. So it's like a private place.

We only use the upstairs during the summer for the most part unless we use it for meditation. It's a nice welcoming space. Just an option, if you choose.

I know you'll do what you have to do but I'm really surprised you'd even consider spending another year in Providence.

Necessity is the mother of bad decisions.

Hope the headache leaves you the hell alone ASAP. Glad the writing is at least progressing for you. Finally managed to purchase a copy of the Ltd edition of Beneath an Oil Dark Sea.

Much sympathy - I suffered from both migraines and insomnia when I was younger. Individually they're nasty, but when they decide to gang up, hoo boy is it a good example of synergistic interactions....

I'm still reading, but most days don't have anything that I consider worthwhile to say.

Food waste -- ouch. I hate that. Here's to hoping that the headache eases up and you get some sleep.
