The Horror of Horoscopes

My horoscope today said very emphatically "something needs to be cut out of your life today and if you don't get rid of it now, you may be stuck with it forever." It went on to say that I am to be ruthless, but Pluto would be there to help me!!

Alas, it's Friday. I usually indulge myself on Fridays, so what can't I have today or ever....henceforth!!

1. I decided I wasn't going to give up my blog. I enjoy the writing and it is a mental exercise, even if the odd angel turns up as an angle :)

2. I often buy a sandwich for lunch on Fridays from one of two French cafes on the street. I know that my Brie, Avocado and Tomato sandwich on half a small baguette puts on pounds that I don't need; however, I do need rewards!!

3. I'm having a friend for dinner tonight, so I can't give up wine today. Well, I could, but then I would feel very left out!!

4. Now, I was going to make a peach pie for dessert. Since I am finally able to make a decent pastry, I have started making pies. My youngest loves them and, of course, I could eat a whole one all by myself!! I am rethinking the pie :)

Cherry Pie

5. I have to clean the house today. This I would give up gladly, however, by the sounds of the horoscope, I think that what I rid myself of today has to be a kind of indulgence!!

6. I play a lot of FreeCell when I'm bored. This I know I should give up.

7. I also do a lot of crossword puzzles - well only two a day - One from each paper, unless it's the weekend and then, whoa!! we have crossword puzzles in spades, in both papers!! I guess that there are a lot of bored people, just hanging out on the weekend, waiting for work on Monday!!

8. Now I could give up trying to avoid the draft of a novel I wrote last November and actually start writing it. Then again I could give up procrastination in general. Meh - why change the habits of a lifetime :)

I'll let you know how the day goes!!
