Owie, Alarm and Twisted Tree

Thursday was just painful. The migraine came back, and nothing helped. I tried everything -- ibuprofen, Excedrin Migraine, extra caffeine, bready food, meditating with a rice-stuffed eye mask on my eyes -- all the stuff that usually makes a difference just didn't touch it.

But I had a coffee date with one of my favorite ladies (my former piano teacher), so at least for that hour I was happily distracted.

I went to bed relatively early -- but at 3:45am, our smoke alarms started going off. I woke up Jeremy (yes, I had to wake him up) and we went looking for the smoke. No smoke. Turns out it was a low battery in one of the Comcast-installed smoke alarms that went with our Xfinity Home Security system. The system went into full fire-alert mode -- no low-battery chirping, just full-on alarm. Do you really need me to go any further into HOW ANNOYED we were? I didn't think so.

Thanks to the migraine (aka ice-pick in my left eyeball), and my racing heart, I had a hard time getting back to sleep. So I slept until 8am Friday morning and went straight to work. No art journaling or anything for me Friday morning. Sad face.

But I did go to my favorite Vinyasa yoga class at lunchtime. And the teacher said I had amazing alignment in Twisted Tree pose. So that made me smile. I make a good twisted tree.

Today is the grand opening of the new park across the open space from our house. Sounds pretty cool. Free boat rides, even. We might have to check it out if I can get far enough along in this freelance project.
