I'm just not feeling too good. I had a fluttering in my stomach, and it's hard to tell if it's the antibiotics or low-level anxiety. I had a lot of caffeinated tea this morning, and I don't think that's helping either way. I decided to try to get a few things done anyway. I started a black load of laundry. Some people do white loads. I wear a lot of black clothes, so my laundry generally includes a black load. I'll do another couple loads of laundry.
Between rainstorms, I put on a heavy coat, a couple of scarves, and the boots I use for gardening and went out to the lilacs. The main plant of the sweet shrub is right there, too, so I sniffed that. The smell of the sweet shrub did not help my stomach, so I think it was more the antibiotics than anything else. Sweet shrub has a sort of fermented strawberries smell. Well, that's how it came across to me today. The lilacs, on the other hand, have a soothing scent, so I went back to them.
I had some yogurt and am trying to just chill in between doing the loads of laundry. I'm hoping to very soon have a couple of things to edit for the week. If I settle down a bit more, I'll try to get back to Lover Reborn or a book I have about Longwood Gardens.
Slightly later: Noting how much I enjoy funny tags. Some are on Tumblr, some are presumably Twitter things -- I really don't understand how that works -- and some are on LJ. I kind of like having workmanlike tags on my LJ, though. Well, if "soap opera" and "gay-related," among others, are workmanlike. They work for me. Like with the journal itself being extremely self-indulgent, the tags are for my reference. I've written meta posts now and then, but don't actually have a meta tag, so I probably put them under "rambling," which is quite possibly my most-used tag.
Early evening: And on yet another day when I've felt crappy, the "big life, small space" Tumblr has kept me entertained. RM (Racheline) explained the concept of "lesbian bed death." I was well aware of the meaning of the phrase, of course. RM thinks it's "ridiculous." I'll go with what she says. Glee is introducing so many people to new-to-them concepts. I forget that my knowledge base is so out of the mainstream. Well, it was.
And go me -- I already had a "lesbian" tag. I think I introduced it in honor of S.H.
