Am I Blue?


Well...a little. It's rainy and cold out, which is a relief after so much heat. It gives me a good excuse to be a hermit crab today.


Which shell should I choose?

I am kind of a hermit crab by nature. I like lots of solitude. I like people too, and enjoy being social, but then I have to retreat back to my hermity lifestyle to regroup. Maybe that's why blogging is so much fun. I can be social and connected in a way, but hermity too.

Well, the slurping has subsided, thank you Jesus! This is actually the fourth time we've been through this. Two years ago, Colin got this huge piece of hardware attached to the roof of his mouth. I don't know how he managed to eat with that thing in there. Every day I had to crank it a bit wider. I never got used to doing that to him. It gave me the creeps every time. Then Hayley got a retainer. Then Colin got braces. Then everything came out, and there was much rejoicing. Now Colin has a retainer. Next stop: Hayley's braces, no doubt sometime in the next few years.

It has been a very muzzy day, but I did manage to make progress on Mr Joe and the alpaca shawl. More tomorrow.


Always good to end with a smile: Disneyland last March. The hattiest place on earth!

Totally rainy, chilly days are rare here, and I treasure them in ways I never thought possible. I took part of yesterday to privately regroup, and the only way it could've been better would've been for it to be crappy and cool outside!

Sometimes I go for walks in the pouring rain. There's nothing quite like it. I have a rain suit (pants/jacket), and that keeps me dry inside, meanwhile rain runs in rivers from head to foot.
