Amazingly brilliant, cloudless sky, full moon lighting the water and the land. I wish I could fly at low altitude and view the landscape in the silver, mysterious light. Perfect night to cross-country ski or snowshoe across a meadow. Yosemite Valley comes to mind, and ye olden days of yore.
I thrilled at the moon this morning, driving back from another 5 a.m. airport drop. Another clear, sunny day… dry as a stick. We could really use some rain.
Didn’t do much except talk to Jules for 3 hours 9 minutes, which wasn’t nearly enough to catch up but any start is a good one. 2011 was rough on everyone. Her Mom’s death continues to burn her heart and soul; so many unanswered questions. No time for closure, things happened so quickly. An old friend blew in from nowhere like an angel on a wing – Joan. It’s peculiar how reconnections happen, and it’s just what she needed. Be nice to have a reunion (a high school beauty queen reunion, those two).
I was supposed to go to Ohio with M for a bit. Shortness of breath and a long flight doesn’t seem like a bright idea. I see the doc tomorrow. He said I could go, but I question the wisdom of unnecessary effort with the possibility of (traveling to) Denver looming in the near (I hope) horizon. So instead, I have to deal with crazy cats bringing in mice that they then release in the kitchen. Grrrr! M has a talent for catching them by their tail and releasing them into the wild. He’s all animals’ best friend. I don’t have the energy for that. I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying the evil mousetraps soon. I’m no killer – that’s what cats are for!! Sigh.
Holed up in the princess room with oil heater, down comforter, tea…haha, also big screen tv, faerie lights, laptop…Saw a couple of good movies – “Beginners” and “The Guard”. Gay behavior and lung cancer in the first one, loads of cursing and vulgar/racist behavior in the second. Quirky, funny, raunchy, well-written, directed, and performed.
Lots on my plate this week – all admin stuff 😦 Will have to watch all of the first season of Portlandia and clear out the DVR of home improvement shows.
