This was a bit of a challenging week for me. The weather turned cold and with any change in weather my body likes to throw a tantrum. I was confined to the couch for a few days and got up only out of necessity. When my pain flares I have to remember to practice amazing self-care, which includes lots of rest, eating well, and being extremely kind to myself. I came across this post on tumblr and it was a great reminder.
I watch A LOT of movies and television shows when I’m stuck at home. Luckily I freakin’ love movies and television shows. This week I watched Europa Report, Monsters, Kung Fu Panda, Sharknado, The Future, The Princess Diaries, Wreck-It Ralph, a few episodes of Archer, and all of BBC’s Sherlock. Whoa! That seems like a lot when I write it all out like that… If you have suggestions for future sick day movies (preferably something on Netflix) I would love to hear them.
When I wasn’t supine I was steeped in music. I took a little field trip out to Archambault which is an enormous book/music store in downtown Montreal. It was so divine to browse the stacks of vocal jazz but so hard to make a choice!
Later in the week Joshua Toal of The Key-Lites came over for an informal video shoot. I have been helping The Key-Lites with their social media profiles and branding to support their indiegogo campaign. They are a really fun soul band and the album is going to be amazing. If you haven’t already you should definitely pre-order their CD and support their campaign.
What did you get up to this week? Watch any good movies? Let me know in the comments below.
