Day 69 of 365

Day 69 of my "365 Days" project. Tea on a chilly day.

I had a lot of plans for this week-end, going for the woodpecker, that old scoundrel, among others. Everything came to a halt as I got a bad cold and the weather is very dull, chilly and damp. Instead, I'll stay indoors with plenty of hot tea and books. Not so bad in the end. 

Being sick, but just a little, is not that bad sometimes; you don't have to do any boring chores and you don't have to feel guilty about it either. After all, you are sick. And you can lay in the bed for as long as you like, coocooned away from the world, watching your preferred movies, eating icecream (it's good for your throat, so it's more like medicine, right?) and reading the books of your childhood.

I've just watched the new "Jane Eyre" movie, directed by Cary Fukunaga, and it is really good. Don't miss it! I wasn't sure I'd like it. I've read the book so many times since I was twelve years old, and you know how hard it is to like a movie based on your favorite book. You have already imagined that whole world in your own way, and then a stranger does the same to "your" book. Tough. But this was very well done indeed. The lightning (most of the time provided only by a fireplace or candles) and the subtle music of Dario Marianelli create that unearthly atmosphere of the book.
