Ahhh, back to the normal rain. I really think I was meant to live here. I don’t mind the rain and the grey clouds and the fog. Our house, in it’s hallow like the back of the earth’s knee, is often blanketed in fog. I think of this as my rest time behind the misty veil (romantic enough for you?).

So, I’ve been reading and being lazy. Yes, I’ve continued reading the Twilight series- quite happily (I thought Eclipse was quite fun) until I began Breaking Dawn and her plot twist totally turned me off. So- I put aside that book and started another (The Sacred Book of the Werewolf by Victor Pelevin). My husband always wonders how I can just leave off a book- shut and toss it aside without finishing it. As I always tell him, life is short and there are many, many books to read!

Running has been my only non-lazy activity. I’ve been loving some new music while I run: The Crane Wife by the Decemberists and Andorra by Caribou.  It is a goal of mine to bring more music into my life- to cultivate that elation that a good song can bring to your heart and soul. I will listen to more music this year. I will sing more this year. I will dance more. I will invite people to our home to play music and sing under the full moon!
