Finished reading Fool's Quest this morning. What do I do now??? I mean, I have several unread books at home in paper form, as well as several in mind that I've been meaning to download... but right now, I don't want any of them. I want THIS ONE. Or rather, the next one in the series - which isn't coming out until next summer. And OF COURSE, this one ends on a cliffhanger. ARRRRRGHHHHHWHYYYYYY???... How do I deal??? [livejournal.com profile] tindomerel, I need a hug. *sniff* ;)

Also, it's definitely fall now. I went out yesterday without a jacket - then ended up buying one, because it got really cold as the sun went down, and I was a long bus ride away from home. In my defense, it's a really plain and versatile (as well as inexpensive) black fleece jacket that can be worn indoors as well as outdoors, and I'm sure I'll get some use out of it. While I was at it, I also bought two nice sweaters and... a summer skirt, which was on clearance. No, I didn't need another summer skirt. Especially now. But... it was purple (in a nice geometric pattern of black, white & purple, to be precise), and it called my name. Also, it goes perfectly well with my new purple sweater - so I might even wear it with warm tights and boots and jacket, if I really can't wait.:P

I hope the heating in my building will be turned on soon. I don't have a thermometer at home, but my coconut oil has solidified - which means it must be at least as cold in here as it is inside a grocery store.:D Which is slightly below my comfort level. *shivers*

I just did an hour of yoga, which probably means I will wake up all stiff and achy tomorrow. I am such a wimp. My strength, balance and flexibility leave a hell of a lot to be desired. *snort* But I am trying - and yoga appeals to me more than any other form of exercise, because it combines physical and spiritual practice into one. And I could definitely use a stronger connection between the body and the mind. I've been neglecting the body - while overworking the mind - for much of my life, and it just isn't doing me any good. It's not about fitness or a sleek figure; I just want to feel at home within myself, with all my flaws and infirmities. Just to stretch and breathe. It gives me a whole new sense of peace. In a perfect world, I would do it every day. I've never been able to sustain the habit long term, though. Sometimes I wonder if my life would have been totally different if I had. And I think the reason I haven't is because I never truly understood the spiritual benefits of consistent yoga practice. Until now...

Also, if I am to believe the early signs, I might be getting another period soon. Which would be perfectly normal timing - if not for the "bonus" one I mentioned before, which happened two weeks ago. *sigh* So apparently now I am menstruating twice a month.:| I just hope I don't have to put up with that shit for the next decade. I'd rather get the menopause early and be done with it. Seriously. Enough is enough. *pouts*

Damn, but it's chilly in here. Going to make myself another mug of hot tea... then dive under the duvet.:D
