06:46 pm - An Adventure in Staying In
Friends, my week has been Too Much.

However, I've made it through meetings, workshops, work, more work, volunteer meetings, and this evening, a glass of wine with friends. Now it's Master Danger and I spending a pleasant evening at home, waiting for An Adventure in Space and Time.

This morning Master Danger and I went out for our usual 1.7-mile walk, into a grey morning. I had seen the forecast that said the rain would be cleared out by today, and we would have unseasonable warmth and mugginess -- so I thought nothing of the clouds.

Two blocks from my house, the heavens opened, and I was soaked within moments.

At that point I asked myself, "Is it even worth going home for a brolly? Master Danger will require walking, anyway...." The answer was obviously No Use A'Tall, so we trudged on. It rained for at least a mile of our journey.

I just changed into my yoga trousers, the ones I wore this morning and then hung to dry all day.

They are still wet. And this, this is Too Much. :)

May your weekend be marvelous and just right, and for those of us celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who tomorrow, may the wibbly wobbly timey wimey make it a wonderful Saturday. :)

Awwww, brave girl!

It's raining here, too, but it's cold rain. No way would I walk in it :)

And I'm picking fights elsewhere on LJ and I'm all in all not a very nice person today, so I appreciate your good wishes, and I wish you a good weekend as well!

Oh, Cronopio, I would NOT walk in the bitter bitter cold rain you're having right now. But I hope the passing cold is fun for y'all. :)

Hoping for better days for you, and for us all.

Too Much Indeed! Our rain gave way to v. v. high winds, so we have just gotten our electricity back, but the sun is out here.

Hoping you get some of the non-muggy variety for weekend walks!

Hugs and good cheer to you...

Definitely a cold rain here, and this morning I just burrowed back under the blankets and let it be cold and wet while I finished reading Robin McKinley's Rose Daughter.

Happy 50th!

I saw that there was a threat of ICE where you are! [offers tea, more blankets, and hugs]

Happy day to you, S!

((Hugs)) Strangely enough, the last two days have been brisk but sunny here. It won't last. I hope you take care of yourself and don't catch a cold. MD must be doing better if he was willing to stick it out in a rainstorm.

Master Danger loves his walks so much that he is perfectly fine with walking in the rain. :))

Hugs and a proper weather-Sunday for you, my friend!
