Day 287 of Project 365: Storm prep.

We’ve got a big storm headed our way. I was quite innocent about all of this today but my coworkers kept mentioning stocking up on stuff to last through the weekend so I went to Freddy’s after work.

Not pictured: Halloween candy. The wind blew it into my basket! Yeah, yeah, and I got fruit and vegetables and tins of soup and crackers too.

Writing from: my study in Portland, Oregon. Listening to: the gusts of wind and rain hitting the windows.

Day 278 of Project 365: Portland or Scotland?

The weather today has been blustery in between light bouts of rain, and I am missing Scotland something fierce.

I wanted to say more on the topic, but I’ve just used my last articulate impulse on mustering my rudimentary Italian to help a new Second Life resident who I discovered crouched on my sofa, dressed like a swashbuckling vampire. I think we may have had a discourse on gender and avatar appearance … but I am likely overestimating my linguistic ability.

Still, when there’s a vampire pirate crouching on your sofa, it’s only polite to try to talk to them. Non è vero?

Writing from: my study in Portland. Or is it Scotland? Listening to: bits and pieces of NFL commentary coming from FunkyPlaid’s study.

Day 230 of Project 365: Unprepared.

We’re due for a serious heatwave:

… Excessive heat warning in effect from 2 PM Thursday to 9 PM PDT Saturday for southwest Washington and northwest Oregon from the Coast Range to the Cascade foothills… including the Portland Metro area and the western Columbia River gorge…

I did laundry tonight so that my meager selection of summer clothing is ready to go but I still feel unprepared.

Writing from: my cooled-off study. For now. Listening to: the “Outlander” theme in my head.

Day 222 of Project 365: Gathering storm.

When I left work today, I felt like the sky looked.

Day 163 of Project 365: Zen’s weather.

If the weather is warm, Zen likes to sit outside near or in the sunshine. If the weather is not warm, Zen likes to sit inside near or on a heater.

If the weather is warm and then cold and then warm and then cold like it was today, Zen gets plenty of exercise alternating between the two.

Here she is in her last cycle of the day, beholden to the space-heater.
