This past week I've been ignorning my body and overworking myself. Yesterday, I finally succumbed to getting sick.
I decided to take today off, feeling miserable.
One of the few things I've found that gives temporary relief is hot tea, so I've brewed a big pot of it.
The other night I went absolutely wild and bought some sugar cubes at the grocery.
(I'm slowly turning into a dowager. I can't wait for my monocle to arrive from Lenscrafters.)
Anyway, an older lady with whom I'm acquainted had offered me sugar cubes in a porcelain sugar bowl (with tongs!) a few months ago, and the cuteness of it completely infected me. I've been wanting some ever since (the tongs just might be next, someone stop me!)
Of course, being a philistine, I'm eating the things like candy, straight out of the box. It's obnoxious.
But given enough boredom, I may get around to building one of these:
Yes, it's the Mormon Temple in sugar cubes (Shouldn't it be salt?)
Of course, I might just have to have a bit of fun with a dousing of rum and a match with mine, but it does look pretty, doesn't it?
