accio morning tea



i'm rereading all seven harry potter books in one big harry potter marathon - shooting for finishing inside of ten days. i think in honor of halloween. i stay up late every evening reading them and if i wake up around 4 a.m. (which i often do), i read some more then. but i think it's affecting my brain. i had the strangest dream that husband fell into the fireplace, but tumbled himself out of it, unharmed, on the other side. that has to be harry potter-induced, what with floo powder and transport via fireplaces and all. but it was the kind of dream where you wake up heart pounding, with a dull headache. not a pleasant way to start the day, i must admit. on the bright side, the day can only get better from here...

need a cup of tea. now where's my wand?

I dreamed of being the mistress of a Chinese emperor and trying to cover for my in-laws (yes, my actual Danish ones) who accidentally burnt a hole in one of his Persian silk carpets.

And I only watched E! entertainment last night. 12 sexiest jobs in Miami I think the program was called.

I think my brain has evacuated on me.

Me, I've had trouble with dangerous mermaids threatening me with pointy objects attached to their bodies instead of fins.

The night before last I had a strange dream induced by watching Dexter (have you seen it over there?) if not google it and you'll see why my dream was weird. Anyway I woke up singing a funny song about trash men!!!! Now that was surreal!!!!!
Your day will get better, it always does!!! xx

Every night I have strange dreams, as if I live another life in my sleep!

Great photo there - makes me remember Autumn (even though I live in Africa where there are no seasons...)

wow...now that's some major reading !!
I like the tea part best as I just can't get enough of it right now....a sign that winter is approaching !

When I read your title, I was like, really? there's a tea named after a Harry Potter spell? Hmmm, maybe I should try that.

What I'd like is the spell that gets my laundry done. Who knows that one?

I read the first three of those (when there were only three) in one three day weekend (pre-child). It was kind of heavenly. I rather envy your marathon.

Sara said...

I can picture a comfy chair, maybe next to a fireplace. And living there for many hours. I envy you right now. I can read one of them in a day but it requires very few distractions. Enjoy.

ooh, I think I'll do that at christmas - reread harry potter! hope your day got better :-)

Oh, that does sound like fun. I often envy those few people who have never read the Potter books. Just imagine what awaits them. I'd love to read them for the first time all over again. But re-reading them in a marathon is a close second!

i always like to look up dreams in the dream dictionary

i feel like i need to re-read the last one as i read it in one sitting when it first came out.

i had to know.

Mmmnnn...hot herb tea. I think I'll go get me a cup. And sit down with a good book. Look what you're making me do. For shame.

Just Jules said...

oh look what I get to follow! yes.

tell me if you find your wand, mine has gone missing

That's fantastic! I have a fantasy that's bordering on obsession with the idea of hunkering down and just reading for a few days. I need a cave.
