1) The painting above pretty much illustrates how I feel when Big Events are taking place in the world, and I'm staying inside my little house. This weekend was March for Our Lives and now the Stormy Daniels interview, and I'm in bed with a cold since Friday morning. Full of admiration for those I know who marched or spoke out this weekend - for all the people who actually enjoy mixing it up with debate on the Big Issues.
2) Among other things, today included: a column by 11 AM, a second viewing of The Scarlet Empress (that is a weird movie!), discovery of the Awesome Etiquette podcasts from the Emily Post Institute (and they are awesome!), housekeeping, a NAP, and a half-recipe of chikhirtma. And many cups of tea with lemon.
2a) Malheureusement, the nasal congestion portion of this cold began just after dinner.
3) But the clincher of the day: the breathtaking insensitivity of Rick Santorum. No wonder he got voted out of office!
