Our neighbor’s Yorkie died. She was only 9 years old. I remember my 4 year olds begging me to go play with the puppy. They became fast friends.
We’d hear Tom telling Rita to shut up from his deck. We’d see Ginny walking her in the morning.
The absence of her squeaky bark is like a hole has been punched in the air.
I’ve just read about 10 posts about rain and thunder storms. Is there anywhere on tumblr that isn’t rainy?
C’mon. Show us your sunny Sunday shots?
Guess we’ll all be wearing our hazmat suits to the beach.
Who am I kidding, it’s not a beach day.
WHO’S UP FOR DAY DRINKING?
And crying. That Lindsay Lohan was adorable when she was 12.
Him: 10/12 undies, 4.5 socks +1 purple socks from another kid, + 1 extra sweatshirt, 4/7 towels and one random camp tee.
Her: 7/12 socks, all undies, 7/7 towels, no extra clothes.
1. Meditate vs marinate e.g. Let the swordfish meditate in teriyaki sauce for 4 hours.
2. Estripes (not Spanish but pronounced like Spanish) vs stripes e.g. I like those awnings with the yellow estripes.
3. Musckles vs muscles. The C is not silent
4. Spaghetties vs spaghetti. It’s plural, there is never just one.
5. Dishvasher vs dishwasher. Like my ancestors said it. See also: vashing machine, car vash.
See? Wasn’t that fun?
I never sleep on the train. After all these years of commuting I’ve never been able to develop that skill. It’s not like I don’t need sleep. I just can’t get comfortable enough to really fall out.
A total of 2.5 hours a day is a lot of time to spend commuting and not sleeping.
Most days I’m pretty active in my seat. I knit or do crosswords. I read the paper or I play stupid games on my phone. Each activity has it’s own sound track. Podcasts are reserved for knitting and game playing; dance, pop and hip hop fuel the crossword puzzle. Scrolling and phone games are set to a shuffle of everything which could include Buddy Holly, the Smiths and Phoenix.
When I need a moment to let my mind rest, or to work something out, I turn to Debussy (I have several selections on my iPod). Something about the beautiful strings relaxes every muscle in my body. I put my earbuds in, close my eyes and I am sailing away.
