Or home and a little sick?
I don't really have anything delightful to squeeze out of my own gray matter for you today.. I'm a bit under the weather today and have a crappy headache. I'm working on reading, but can't seem to get into anything.. I have books I haven't read sitting on my shelf, but each time I start one I end up just trading for another.. *sigh*. Perhaps I should read a graphic novel instead. Those are easier.. I have a couple of Catwoman books waiting, and the latest issue of Walking Dead.. And now I'm boring you all with totally random rambling.. It's 60 degrees and sunny today and my body wants nothing to do with outdoor activity. How sad. And my poor children have a mother who can't keep up with the laundry well enough to be willing to let them go enjoy the sunshine and slather themselves with mud. Because out there? everything. is. mud.
Mud is something we didn't have a lot of in California. I mean sure.. we had 'mud'. But not like Iowa mud. Iowa has mud. Like deep, sticky, lose your boot in it mud. I'm not up for it today. Sorry kids. At least we might have some snow by the end of the week.. What a crazy state we live in.. I just love global warming.
Wow, my writing is crap today.. I guess it's a good thing I can't focus enough to work on my book (not the one I submitted.. I started another one last week..). If I did work on it, I might have to later delete anything I produced today.
Speaking of California.. my good buddy Evan brought my attention to a lovely tribute to Trader Joe's over at Laughing Squid. Hence the touch of home sickness. I heart Trader Joe's. I did ALL of my grocery shopping there when we lived in Folsom. They were awesome. Affordable. Healthy. Natural. Unique.. aaahh... I wish they'd add one here in Des Moines. I know it would be a big hit.
So, I'll shut up now.
