Rained Out

It’s been raining, since Friday, often at times pouring torrential downpours. I did some retail therapy this morning, but that isn’t holding off the depression that’s setting in from the rain. I took out my camera once while out today, during a brief break in the rain when I saw this. Made it back to […]

Tick, meet Tock…

As I sit here and procrastinate (including writing this) the moments go by, and I have yet to pack, yet to manage, yet to organize “Tickets, Money, Passport” as Edwina so succinctly put it in “Absolutely Fabulous” instead, I am reading book reviews, about the book that I am reading, and awaiting the arrival of […]
