Holiday Blues



Diagnosis: A serious case of the Mean Reds.

Prescription: Bright blue sky.

Uh oh: No such thing availabe in DC today, for the last few days, or for the next few days.

Consolation (also favorite line from the film Titanic): It'll all be over soon.

Happy solstice, ya'll.

Tell me there aren't angels. Not ten minutes after I pushed the "publish post" button, the clouds parted and the new solstice sun appeared all silvery and fresh.

Then a small miracle: my first client didn't show up so I was able to grab the dog and go for a walk in the sunshine.

I believe in angels!

Jake looks as if he got tired of all those gray rainy days, too. "What, another puddle? You've *got* to be kidding me!," his look says. It is indeed such a relief to see the sun for a change. I felt better instantly as it came out over the cemetery during the a.m. dog walk.

Happy days to you, too!

Happy Solstice to you Reya. It's snowing here in the other Washington - still. Four days now. Sending big fluffy snowy hugs to you and Jake.

My birthday is not blue, Reya. Nope. Nope. I love Jake's expression. Like he had an "accident" and he thinks you're going to blame him for it. Just remember: tonight is the longest night of the year. After tonight, it all flips again.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
