Desert to Snow

Three rental cars to get me to L.A. and back.

Thankfully, they didn't charge me for the full trip, knocking it down to just 2 days of rental fees... it almost paid for the headache from the cigarette smoke in the last one. I left California using my air conditioner, and arrived here to inches of snow.

Sophie is tickled with her new toy--a crinkle tube. I thought it was a great idea when I bought it, and, after 47 trips through it, I'm ready to toss it outside and burn it. Silent it isn't.

Thoughts settled, and acceptance made of some things that went from sterling memories to rotten egg smelling ones. This, too, shall pass... with the bonus of making a friend who is pretty amazing. That friend joins those already in my nightly prayers to God and the Universe, wishing contentment, peace, joy and love to wash over them.

I left my tarot cards in LA, blargh!

I am working on the Neville story, I promise all three of his fans! I spent my LA time reading, knitting and enjoying TheBrother and the SIL. Thus, it was time well spent.

Well spent, indeed.

I wish I'd known you were in LA; my sister Jennifer was there Wednesday and Thursday. You'd love her: she's me. Slightly bitchier (but the two of us together are a force with which to be reckoned!) and she's a nurse not a legal secretary. And therefore she's more nurturing. Other than THAT...

next time.

when are you coming to visit me? that number is in my car.

I love to hear about your travel experiences! Glad Sophie likes her toy; a happy kitty is a good thing to see.

Hey, we almost have a full pic of you... very nice!

So back home and all, safe and sage.

You read the cards? Why am I not surprised?

Power on, Sophie; Crinkle tubes MUST crinkle and uhmm screech (?) and cats must be cats.

I'm glad you made it home safely. Every trip is an adventure, especially when fmd is at the wheel!

Quin -

Just a shout out from snowy Chicago...I have just about had it with this warm-then-cold-then-warm-then-cold weather!!

Glad to read that you are safely ensconced at home, with a happy, noisy cat.
