These days, or parts of these days, I am writing a novel that, for now, I’ll just call “The Post Office Book”.

I write a lot of letters and postcards and very much think that counts.

Other hours of the day or month, I’m scribbling stories, or sentences and fragments that may miraculously tie themselves to one another and become a sort of story.

    January through March on my 2017 Temperature Scarf. I 💕 this project! You knit a row per day in a colour that corresponds to the temperature on that day. The wool I chose is pure Shetland, grown and spun on Shetland Isles. Shetland Black is 0-19 degrees, Natural White is 20-29, Sholmit (gray) is 30-39, Highland Mist is 40-49, and Green Mist is 50-59 degrees. As I knit through the months there will be greens and pink and gold and ochre to represent the hotter days. Swoon! Caturday. Veturday. Boostershoturday. NotVeryHappyDay. Sleepy time....if only that fookin chicken would shut up.... 🐓 She likes steamy mermaid romance novels best I would choose late-summer tomato cobbler over any other cobbler ever 🍅 I shouldn't allow this but the Irish in me is delira to have a beans-on-toast-lovin kitty 🇮🇪 #beansmeansheinz Looking back through pictures of all the many many hikes Ian and I, and friends, have taken in the gorge over the years, I realized that Eagle Creek was the very first hike I did with Ian when I moved here to marry him in 2010. It was October and the salmon were making their way to spawn upriver. And there were wildflowers and this little fuzzy guy and these smiles on our faces. I'm sorry salmon. I'm sorry trees. I'm sorry birds. I'm sorry bees. I'm sorry wildflowers. I'm sorry little fuzzy guys. You deserve so much better than us. Freakazoid 🎤
