Blogtober #13: The 8 minutes until midnight post.

It rained mercilessly today. There was no coffee to be had, and no time for books, but it was certainly a true rainy day. I don't care for these kind of days, but that's the rub of autumn. She will give you color and hues and leaves, but you shall also receive handfuls of rain. [...]

Blogtober #8: Fall Future.

Some of the upcoming temperatures in my little corner of Texas for the next few days. I'd do a cartwheel, but the way my knees are set up... Needless to say, super excited for the impending cooler breeze in the atmosphere. Happy Monday, Autumnites...

storm warning.

Last night, it rained. Hard. Let me tell about the rain in Texas (rather than the rain in Spain; you're welcome). When I first moved here a whopping seven months ago--time truly flies--my friends hardly spoke about the heat. The heat didn't require discussion. I knew that the sun would be vengeful, punishing me for something [...]

Summertime Essentials. (?!)

As expected, the drizzly/rainy/cloudy/depressing 50-degree days of just last week quickly turned into 80-plus degree days in the big city. Our very sad spring went right into cheerful mid-summer. Out came the cute dresses on ladies, the sandals, the much-needed pedicures for toes that appeared to have been trapped in coal mines and were used [...]

Fabu Fashion Wednesday: Springtime Fakery.

Meteorologically speaking, it's spring. In real time, however, a dreary cloudiness continues to cast an endless shadow over our atmosphere, bringing with it daily rainfall and cooler-than-average breezes. I won't comment on the side eye I give anyone that tries to remind me of rain and flowers and things growing. (There goes that positive attitude. Le sigh.) Anyway, as you [...]

How to Survive a Blizzard.

Last Friday, I imagine that a team of meteorologists high-fived each other and whooped giddily into the night. Why? Because all the forecasts and "models" were proven true: a blizzard was expected, and a blizzard came. For the past five days, most of us in the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic have been holed up in [...]

laughter in the rain?

This morning, a cold, unrelenting rain descends onto the atmosphere. The skies are dark, overwhelming, and sad. And I'd like to swim in a pool of French fries and cupcakes while I sob myself to a fitful sleep. Needless to say, it's obvious that I loathe days like this. I'd love to tell you that I'm someone who [...]

Word.

If this quote doesn't describe the current state of the weather in Somewheres, VA... And so I continue to await the first spring day with bated breath, gloves, my winter coat, and a giant scarf (sometimes two scarves). Yours in Still Stuck in Winter, This Square Peg
