Semi official holiday week check in thread
Advertisements [?]


So, what are you all up to, loves?

We're between rainstorms up here. Mom is worried that I'm cooking a turkey for the two of us tomorrow but since we just figured out we can afford to buy a holiday dinner, that's a nice worry. I told her I'd make tamales with the leftovers to take around to the family. We're not exchanging presents but since this is Crash Year 3, it doesn't matter very much. If we're fed, the animals are fed and there's pie, too, we'll be happy. Oh, and please, please hold the rain. The road is half done and turns to pudding-like mud in the heavy rain. Last week I had to park my truck and get out of here on foot to run errands because the creek was impassable. There was more water on the road than in the dry creek bed.

Cleaning up tax filings for the family and making notes for an essay but not much else really. This week is my favorite one of the year because it's nice and quiet and there's more time to do things like read or listen to random music or tag up with my peeps.

Got a weird message from Doug a few days ago, the first one in years. It was cryptic and frightening and I wanted to delete it but answered it instead with, so what is going on? Haven't heard back and probably won't. Which is fine.

I used to be Christmas queen, shopping, baking and festooning and staying up sewing and gluing everything in sight, In a way, this enforced low stress holiday is welcome. Simple rocks. I'll try to take some snapshots and post them later in the week. It's bare and spare and wintry up here -- as wintry as this valley gets, anyway. The horses are happy because the hillsides are greening up. They take the long view.
