Amidst the news of more snow on the way and the headline on The Detroit News citing Detroit as the “second worst place to live”, came the news that 26 people from my husband’s office had lost their jobs today. Thankfully, he was not among them ~ at least not this time. If you live in southeastern Michigan and work for an automotive company or one of their suppliers, you begin to feel as if a large bullseye is painted on your back.
Add to this my stuffy head, scratchy throat, and achy body, and you could say it hasn’t been the jolliest of days.
I did enjoy a nice lunch with my friend Carol, today ( at least I assume the food was good, since I couldn’t taste a thing! ) Our husbands sing in Measure for Measure, and she and I have become buddies as well as choir groupies. This was our first outing a deux, and we enjoyed talking over delicious fresh pita sandwiches at First Cup.
I have the entire weekend to recover from my cold/sinus infection, with a chunky novel to read (The Hour I First Believed, by Wally Lamb), some tv ( more Prime Suspect) and a fresh batch of rooibos tea from Adagio.
All is not lost.
Stay warm and stay well, my friends.
How about you? What’s the forecast for your weekend???
