Today I'm grateful that:
Though work was hairy yesterday, I got done what was most vital.
The hottest day of the week, at mid-90's (34 C), is behind me, and things will be blissfully better for at least 3 days.
That they're talking 80's rather than 100 (38 C) for our time in Sioux Falls this weekend.
We could enjoy an evening just at home with the air conditioning, conversation, pizza, and a dorky movie.
And most of all, for the extreme rarity of wonderful dreams. I've been thinking a lot about the end of book 5 and the gulf of time beyond it over the past weeks; so perhaps not too surprising I should dream various scenes from those events, just like I used to a decade past in college. Wonderful.
Yep, they're priceless. =)
Ugh, not very fond of floods either. Gorgeous Tahoe is burning and Texas is flooding, what a world. And now 'low' grass fire alerts kicking in around the Sioux Falls area this weekend. Supposed to be roasting again by Sunday, but I'll take what I can get!

Happy to hear that you and your Mom are enjoying your time so much!! I hope your day of work today isn't too much of a bear...
Do you think your dreams might be an indication that you'll be up for writing again soon? =) (or am in not supposed to ask that question?)
Tahoe -a selfish ick. David and I planned our anniversary weekend celebration up in North Lake Tahoe -- already paid for the room and all...Don't know how that's going to work out...
I hope you enjoy the end of your week! Can't wait to hear all about it!

hmmm...there was a bit of an error message on my computer and it said this hadn't gone through...then when i proved i wasn't a robot, i saw that it had posted for the second time!! eeks!
well, i hope that July is nice and COOL then!! =)
Work's being hairy, though a different sort of hairy than Tuesday. (They come in flavors, yep ;)
That would be wonderful, but it certainly won't be happening if July is as hot as June!
That's a bummer. =( That area is so gorgeous, from the little bits you two showed me...I was happy to see my favorite parts of the Gunflint undamaged, and we didn't get far up enough to see the parts that were. Sad to imagine parts of Tahoe blackened.
