Is she promised to the night


Maybe daft hit the nail on the head when she wondered if my homesickness wasn’t caused by the weather.

It’s raining today. I went out and danced in it a little this morning, in shorts and a tank top, to remind myself that this strange warm rain isn’t my rain from home at all. Now I’m listening to music best suited to sunny Sunday mornings and trying to write fiction. Obviously I’m failing at the fiction part, or I wouldn’t be over here procrastinating, eh?

I had terrible insomnia last night combined with even worse dreams than the night before. Not only was I awake every hour or two, in between I had recurring dreams where I had a mouth full of broken glass. GAH! I’m actually twitchy just writing it. Horrible. So horrible.

Happy things. Happy things. Happy things. Happy things.

I wish miss Rhi wasn’t on vacation with her baby girl. I’d drive right over to E. Tennessee right now to spend the day with that sweet baby. That would surely fix me. Or if someone had a very tiny kitten I could play with. Alas I think I’ll have to cheer myself up. Okay then, will pick the right music and maybe make jewelry instead of working on the depressing story. And maybe stand in the rain a little more.

  1. happy things!

    I will be there hanging out with you in MERE DAYS!! friday! whee!


  2. YAY YAY YAY! That in itself is cause for dancing!

  3. The power of a tiny kitten is not to be denied.

    Back in my college dorm days, my roomate and I made a sign for the door for when we were really depressed or tired or whatever: “Knock and Die.” So one day I put out the sign, lay down and a few minutes later there’s a crazy pounding on my door. I think to myself, “Who the hell can’t read the fucking sign?!” and rip open the door – only to be staring at two baby kittens my friends Mike and Jim had brought over.

    I really miss those boys. Go find yourself a kitten and please keep me on your friends list if you’re so inclined.

  4. Even after years of living in Florida, warm rain kind of freaks me out. 😦 It’s just so strange.

    **gives you a basket of fuzzy kittens**

  5. No, kittens but I did play with a very nice dog all afternoon.

    Of course I’ll keep you, silly.

  6. It finally rained here today. I’ve missed it and I didn’t even go anywhere. I think this has been one of the dryest summers ever here in the PNW.

  7. We’re back. You could drive on over today or tomorrow if you still need fixin’.


  8. Aw, I wish I could, but I’m on my way to the airport right now to get Nan!!

  9. You’ve seen Nan more than you’ve seen Cecily since the move!!!! *pouts* I’m kidding. Kinda.
