I took today off. Actually, it could be argued I take everyday off since I am currently unemployed. However, I usually spend time here with my laptop, working on blog entries, reading and writing comments,working on the novel, researching, playing with Photoshop, visiting other blogs, and so forth (oddly, a great deal of my activity seems to tie into Richard Armitage. Hmmmmmmm . . .).
However, in spite of my efforts with heat and cold therapy and meds, my shoulder-plus pain was still being a bear. I decided I needed to take a break, rest, catch up on some ZZZZs and make inroads into re-reading that fabulous classic by Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca (Richard would make a fabulous Maxim. See, even with a day off, I don’t really take a day off from Armitage . . .) Sometimes I forget how much I enjoy a particular author’s work and then I re-read one of their books, and all that pleasure floods back over me. Reading–the gift that keeps on giving, again and again.
I am happy to report that, at least for now, the pain and knottiness in my muscles, tendons and fascia has abated. I am going to try to take it easy for the next few days. I know it will inevitably return, but I am trying not to rush things. 😉 In the meantime, Guyday Friday fast approaches . . . and Guy is always ever so watchable, even when he’s in the background . . . thank you, Richard Armitage, for the wonderful, irresistible, beautiful, mercurial, noble, snarling, vulnerable creation that is Sir Guy.
Enjoy the Guy beauty with more to come (and yes, that is a quote from Rebecca with the narrator describing Maxim De Winter . . .) Hope all of you are well!
