Yesterday I came home from work with a small but tolerable migraine and decided that even though my head was throbbing I would start work on my recipes. Two hours into the process I had completed 6 whole pages...a HUGE YAH! but the little tolerable migraine had become a full blown "I think I may hurl experience." I'm so sorry about the lovely descriptive word, but I truly thought it was going to be "one of those" so I took two Excedrin migraine pills and curled up on the couch with my favorite warm fuzzy binkie and my ever faithful pups.

I awoke three hours later, let the puppies out, and got ready for bed. The only problem was that the minute my head hit the pillow I was wide awake with a million thoughts running every which way in my brain. Finally around midnight I stumbled out of bed and decided to catch up on some of my favorite blogs that I have been desperately missing of late. BUT, first I thought I would take a look at mine..."Oh my gosh! That RED IS SO BRIGHT!!!" Were you able to see that from your computer? Why did no one tell me that I was an obnoxious shade of hot pink?
Well, I decided to tone it down a bit...way down as you can see.

I was trying for a nice Christmas colored theme, but then after playing with more colors last night I came to the conclusion that White is very "Christmasy."
Those pesky reds and greens are the worst hues on the color wheel to figure out, so I'm hoping this will be more pleasing to the eye.

The picture above? I don't remember where I got it, but hopefully whoever I borrowed it from will show a lit of grace if they ever come across my blog. OOPS!
It's a picture of the same little cafe two posts below (my shot) of a street in Quebec.

That does it! Quebec is going on my "I have to travel here" list. Hope your migraine is gone! Dear gets migraines kind of regularly. Not fun at all...

Cori- I has a migraine last night too. Unfortunately, I did hurl. Oh, well, at least I was able to sleep!
I did not realize the fires were so close to you. My M-I-L lives in Whittier, so she must be seeing the same clouds you are.

Belly dancing sounds like so much fun! Have you been taking classes long?

I got a giggle out of your midnight revelation of extreme color. There is part of me that would love to repaint our interior walls of all the living space. I want a red wall---but it has to be the right tone and I've had several friends who finally gave up after testing LOTS of little cans of red paints trying to get the color right. I LOVE that street in the picture. WOW, I want to go there.
I had one migraine in college---GLORY---three days in a dark, quiet room. I have lots of friends who have them monthly--I can't imagine. Have a grand day with Him Cori!

Hi Cori,
Hope you are feeling better. I get occular migraines from time to time. I can only see things in halves. It is a little freeky.
I have the day off and a nice long weekend. The job is going well but even the Dr.'s are feeling the economy. I just thank the Lord for a job.
I can't imagine fires burning around me. Glad you are safe.

Hi Cori...Yes, I have read the 5 Love Languages...Tom and I read through it and discussed it on the phone over several weeks...before we got married. I lived in Wisconsin and he in Michigan. Great book.

I love the new look Cori! I was going to tell you it looked like snow! That photo of Quebec is gorgeous --I thought it was a painting!
Hugs, Pat
