It's been "real" is probably an understatement. You can take it so many ways. But let's just say it's been one of those...two weeks, that make you swell up like a balloon, and stare longingly at chocolate. Which I can't have because it carries too much of a histamine load. Anyway, I've discovered iced tea, not the hot stuff gone cold, which I've been fighting for years, but the cold brew stuff that doesn't have any bitterness. I'm slowly climbing out from under, but I'm running into my usual roadblock. I can't squeeze anymore time out of the day.
It's been getting colder up here. A good thing, since this is probably the only place in the country without central air. I still remember back when I was a kid, selling off my first car--the guy said, "What do you mean this doesn't have a/c?" And I said, "Mister, it's Hawaii. We don't need a/c." I was young. And stupid. Everyone needs air conditioning, or at least a couple of really big fans, but I suspect summer is over because I had to pull out my hoodie. And people have started talking about the Emerald City again. That's usually a fall thing. They're doing a costume party this year, not that I have any intention of going. I check out the autographing and do the diva dinner.
Hopefully things will settle down soon. I'd like to get up to Rainier while the snow is melted and check out the wildflowers. I've always wanted to see avalanche lilies.
