Rain

It rained today. Still is raining. Well, it did stop for about an hour, but mostly it’s been raining all day. Girlie had to play soccer in it and frankly it was cold. In the 40s. But we really need the moisture. We’re in a drought and this will help all the fields and the feed for animals. Not to mention we’ve already had fires here. Didn’t do my walking though. Slugged out. More soccer tomorrow and possibly Iron Man 3.

Working on something that isn’t coming together very well. It’s very shiny though. So I keep stirring it to see what will turn up. Trouble is, I have to break outside my own expectations for a particular place. Normal behavior in this place doesn’t apply, nor do typical motivations, or typical laws. It’s upside down in a lot of ways, for a good reason, but I keep falling into traditional mental patterns and I have to get out of that. If only it were that easy.

All the purple has vanished from my hair and I need to put it in again. I’ll try to work on it this weekend.

Doing some research for my current WIP. Not sure if I’m getting anywhere. I’d like to go visit the location.

    Go you! I can only imagine how hard it is to NOT think like yourself. UGH! Also, I have to say that I LOVE that you have purple in your hair.

    Eldest daughter (16) has had purple in her (light brown/dark dishwater) hair for the past 2 or so years. Youngest daughter (14) has had blue streaks in her (light blonde) hair for about 6 months (instigated by eldest daughter). Hubby told me that at (almost) 45, I should not get weird colors, so I get highlights and lowlights. It looks good, but not edgy (duh, I have a degree in Accounting and hubby is a Chemical Engineer!) Oh well, I guess to him, blonde is sexy? 🙂
