Song mood: Step Out by Jose Gonzalez.
Drove home today. I had a massive headache and joint pain. I figured that I would go home and just rest up in a dark quiet place. So that’s what I did. I made some ramen and then continued reading my birthday book.
As I was unpacking and stuff, I noticed that all the Sam-E vitamins were melted. Sam-E is something that’s already in the liver. It improves liver function and helps with depression and anxiety. I notice that when I stop taking Sam-E, I have joint pain. So I’m wondering if the melted ones I have been taking all week were ineffective. Next time I have doctor’s check-up visit, I’ll stop taking it to see if it really affects or improves my liver.
I was listening to The Innocence of Father Brown G.K. Chesterton and decided that it wasn’t the best thing to listen to while driving the long drive. Chesterton had a different style of writing mysteries. Most of the passages infer on things that aren’t made clear. Things the reader should be picking up on. Therefore the thing isn’t directly talked about. Also Father Brown isn’t the POV character and it’s not clear who the narrator is.
I looked up mysteries on Audible and picked Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House by M.C. Beaton. I’m enjoying this cozy little mystery. Agatha Raisin is a middle aged woman who has retired from a P.R. company who solves murders. She changes clothes about three times every time her crush knocks on the door and everyone warns not to fall in love. I really get the humor.
A Stir of Echos was good. I forgot from the last time I read it who done it. And I fell into the same trap as I did before. Because I remember who done it in the Kevin Bacon movie. And so all the clues in the story point to a certain person. But the book and the movie are very different. The characters are different in the movie than in the book as well. Like I never understood why in the book, the wife, Ann, isn’t as supportive to Tom who has the psychic abilities, when they are things that are beyond his control.
With hope, I will feel better tomorrow and the headache will be gone. I took a couple capsules of Sam-E and already my joint pain has diminished. I will walk around the lake. I will brainstorm and then get some writing done.
