Weather Report

I understand how the term "cold snap" came into use. Today the weather suddenly turned to 60 degrees — maybe not "cold" in some people's book, but definitely a quick change from the summer-like high 80s of yesterday. Plus, it was windy today. Pretty high winds, the kind that propel the palm trees to do side bends. All in all, good weather to cozy up up to the laptop and get some writing done.

Really, the picture doesn't have anything to do with the blog, but it is a favorite of myself.

I could tie it to the weather with words about how hot Thailand is. But, a better tie-in is that I visited my friend Katie in Portland a few years back and she has a picture of me in the same t-shirt holding her baby daughter on her fridge (picture is on the fridge, not her daughter).

Probably it is removed by now, as I'm not visiting. She put it up there because she had intended to mail it 20-something years ago when Bree was a newborn.
