All: Mercury is in retrograde.
So if you’re trying to figure out why every day is uphill, or like me you’re having vivid dreams featuring honeybee hives and mobsters, there’s your answer. Y’all know that I casually dabble in astrology when the time is right and after last night’s dream along with a text from a sorority sister informing me that she dreamed I had twins, it was just time. According to Meredith, it rolls out on the 26th, so let’s all just keep going until then.
Anyway, no, I haven’t dropped off the grid. While we were cooking dinner, Marcus observed that it had been a few days since I posted and I told him that part of it was because I don’t really feel like I have anything to say right now, and other part largely has to do with the fact that over the last five days (Thursday – Monday) I was up to my ears in visiting with girlfriends. Birthday-ing, Running, Friendsgiving-ing, Passing out during My Big Fat Greek Wedding-ing. You know the drill.
It’s unseasonably warm here right now. Even though I don’t even know if you can really say that anymore, since I’m pretty sure that it was just as warm here last year at this time. But I’m not complaining. Because if a large swath of Minnesota winter is dominated by temperatures hovering around or above freezing (this week’s theme is 50s and 60s), I am SO DOWN. I will embrace brown winter for the rest of my life.
Since it’s so warm, the geese have returned.
No I cannot make any sense of this either. But it makes me so 11/10 happy. Yes, I have more snaps to share on the days where my bottomless well of content runs dry. I’ll leave it to you to decide whether that’s better or worse than my cat lady blogging.
Meanwhile, tonight I finished the book, I am Forbidden, by Anouk Markovits.
On the couch in the living room. Because after dinner, that’s what I really wanted to do. And no, I haven’t been reading a lot lately either, so it was all sorts of soul-filling.
I think Sue, my Mother-in-Law recommended this one to me. It was extremely painful and very beautiful. It flew by.
What have y’all been up to for the past few days?
