Monday has been cancelled.*

I had beautiful plans for the day that included spending 90 minutes audiobooking in the car and visiting with my nephew, but I woke up with a migraine and none of my pills could shake it. SO, I spent the day on the couch with Scout as my headrest.


Henry made frequent visits to press his head into my thigh because “Is it time to eat yet? Is it time? Now? How about now?”


I did manage to add a six row section to the cowl, which I believe is nearly halfway finished.


This evening will include lots of hot tea and blackberries drizzled with pear honey from Half Crocked Chef. Fuzzy pajamas. Falling asleep as Colbert delivers his opening monologue. Having dreams that look something like this.

*From Grammarist: In American English, the verb cancel is usually inflected canceled and canceling—with one l. This is not a rule, however, and exceptions are easily found. In varieties of English from outside the U.S., including Canadian, British, and Australian English, cancelled and cancelling are the preferred spellings.

  1. I can not BELIEVE that with all the effort you have put in to kicking that migraine habit, you’re still plagued by those things. Begone, Monday migraine, I say!!!

    Also, Henry’s face!!!

  2. I had one last night. And there went all my plans for the evening. Today is better for me, hope it is better for you.

  3. Cancelled just looks right-er to me. Even if it is second best in American English. Massive migraine reduction for me after nerve decompression surgery (but massive recovery and side effects — not worth it unless migraines have taken over your life)… but I recently had to change medications for the migraines that I do still get — INJECTED imitrex has been a godsend. Worth a shot? (HAHAHAHAHAHA!) (Feel better.)
