Listening: Cinematic by Erin McKeown

Reading (perhaps quality): Persuasive Technology by BJ Fogg. Read Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver and Catherine Empress of All the Russias by Vincent Crown over the weekend. Yeah, I guess I am trying to impress you.

Reading (definitely pulp): Nothing.

Drinking: White wine that is almost too old to drink.

No lights on except for the christmas tree ones and whatever's radiating off of my computer screen. The lightning outside is providing the rest.

This is the first thunderstorm this summer that I've been able to enjoy. There was one a couple of weeks ago but I was caught in it - walking home soaked through may have been fun some other time but with blistered feet (from party shoes) and groceries in hand the wind and fat raindrops were a nuisance.

Not so tonight. Am home snug with the wind swirling around, drops hitting the windows and lightning flashes occasionally winking. Thunder sounds are muffled by the CD, the cieling fan is working well enough so there's no need for the air conditioner and I think this wine'll be fine to drink for one more day.

Life is pretty good.


Have been crazy busy lately.

Last weekend was the bridal shower/ bachelorette extravaganza for Am. Great to see her and completely worth the trip out to California. As a bonus got to see the family (including my adorable blonde blonde year old nephew) and had plenty of time to read on all the plane flights. The Catherine book (right) was a victim of some juicy raspberries along the way but with her history it seemed more appropriate to leave it.

Otherwise? Busy with work. Getting back into hanging out with friends I haven't seen in a while (Bibi, Beley, Talullah). Going to the gym. Coping with my allergies. Looks boring there on the page but it's been satisfying in real life. Except for the allergies - those really suck.

Doing (life and related tasks): Recouping from the weekend away.

Doing (crafty stuff): New design for summer was about all I could muster tonight.

Wanting: Not sure, but something.

Anticipating: Tess and Troy's wedding, getting to hang out with the fam, the summer solstice toga pary next weekend.
