Summah-time, summah-time, sum-sum-summah-time....

It's 9:15 am, and it's 80 degrees. says it's supposed to be 101 today! That's steamy, smelly, wilty hot. Call me an over-delicate whiny voilet if you will, but that's awfully warm for our dear city of Portlandia! Time for iced drinks, drawn blinds, and plenty of cool showers.

The view from my office looks south, directly toward OHSU. Party on the hill. It's green and lush, and looking at all the trees blowing in the wind, I feel like I can watch them wilt as the minutes tick past.

Things have been busy lately. I went back to Seattle-land two weekends in a row. Once to watch the little sister graduate from high school, and again to hang out, eat delicious food, drink lots of wine, and take a glorious day-hike. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. Driving back to Portland, windows wide to the world, good music on the stereo... life felt wonderful.

I'll try to remember that when I prepare to leave the AC of my office and set off into the jungle after work today.
