Today I'm thankful for:

     A beautiful sunrise (and a swelling moon peering in through my window last evening).

     A swift, untroubled day at work (and my boss discovered the makeshift 'dart game' and was unperturbed).

     Being 'keeper of the cockroach' once again and not even caring it was on my desk (it was so obviously dead for a goodly while that my bizarre fear of 'zombie bugs' couldn't be bothered to manifest! ;)

     A surprise letter from Brandi! (I envy your letter-writing skills, me dear--and I quite like 'minya nouvelle' and your stationary. The font has a delightfully disheveled air to it. =)

     The storm passed through fast this evening and made little trouble, and now it should be autumn weather and no more storms at least for a while... (One local weatherman is convinced what hit a spot in Woodbury last Thursday was a small tornado. My mom and I found it a bit too close to my parents' old house for comfort--under 1.5 miles. One more reason for her to be happy she's 2000 miles away from this wacky weather!)

Uh-oh, dare I ask what the 'makeshift dart game' consisted of? ;)

Yay, glad you got it! Yup, there's just something about minya nouvelle... it's neatly typed yet just out of whack enough to be quirky. ^_^

Lucky you :P We have another day of horribly hot weather here, and then the storms will hit us and bring cooler weather. C'mon, storms, come on!! This 90+ degree weather without air conditioning is driving me nuts!!

How is your mom liking California, by the way?

Corey's got a mini dart with a sticky suction-cup end on it. Then he drew a target on the window with dry-erase markers. But the first I knew of it was last week when I saw this funny object hanging from the ceiling!

Ugh! Sorry to hear the air still isn't working for you. =P I hope you get your cooling trend soon.

She seems to like it quite well. She likes telling me the things they get worked up about--like a little rain recently when it's not the rainy season. Apparently from the way some folks acted, they're either: a) made of sugar or b) can't tell the difference between a drizzle and a typhoon. So she does have fun laughing at the natives, but she enjoys the incredible plant/flower diversity there too. =)

It's so close to autumn that we just decided not to throw the money away on getting the a/c fixed yet... though I'm starting to regret that decision! We'll get it fixed late next spring though, before hot weather returns.

Heheh, Californians are such wimps ^_~

That makes sense, and I suppose the heat is dragging on the longer (or feels so) on account of it! ;P

Heh...though I think it takes a certain sort of courage/foolhardiness to live in earthquake country myself!

I'm afraid the sun is now getting up before I am. I rather miss seeing the sunrises. I hope you're enjoying yours.

I hope to get to see a few more, because that makes up for the fact it's now dark when I get up. Actually, it's pretty dark right now, and I head for the bus in 15 minutes.

So glad the storm did not affect you. I was talking to Linda last night and
she said the storm went thru quickly. Hope this is the end of it.
Your weather sounds very nice 60's for this week. Enjoy!

Are up thinking of going to wildflower gardens. SD

I hope it's the end for this year! Did Linda call for your birthday? I hope things are going well for her.

Not this weekend; I have too much planned already. Maybe the one after.
