I’m sitting outside the library writing on my laptop in the fine summer breeze, and this guy walks by me and says, “Why aren’t you sitting inside on a nice chair where it’s air conditioned?” Me: “I like sitting outside.” Him: “They should put a bench out here.” Me: “I prefer the ground.”

Walked 7 miles into town this mornin’! Saw all sorts of lovelies you don’t see in the car: a cute lil Jumping Mouse, a Snake, white Trillium flowers in bloom, Ravens going “squak!”, Cherry Creek all shiney and epic, and a good long look at that giant wooden carving on the way up to the Lake of the bearded guy holding up two big circles on a pile of skulls. Sleeveless in the cool morning air. Ate ribs in town and saw loved people and did stuff. My poor feet started hurting because they hath become so delicate and un-callused this winter and I picked the wrong shoes. Rain began to fall….hard. I chickened out of the walk back and got rescued by a heroic friend in town who drove me back up. It was a good day.

Monday morning after seeing my T off to work I went and sat outside the Duvall library, waiting for it to open. I was honored with a visit from an adorable little brown mouse who popped out from around the corner, took a good look at me, scampered across the sidewalk to investigate in tremendous cuteness, then scampered back into her abode with another glance of greeting my way. She was so quiet and delicate, so scouty and beautiful that I loved her right then and there.
