Friday Update

It has rained every single day this week.
The sky has been a unrelenting wall of gray, holding the sun hostage.

Yes, I'm aware how how dramatic I'm being.
I am also aware that it rained maybe twice in April
so it is very much needed. It's just sad.

I am very much looking forward to warm,
sunny days spent reading outside,
sitting on the beach, and getting out on the water
whether on a sailboat or in a kayak.
I need it to be summer.

JD starts his finals next week so this weekend is bound to be very quiet.
If the rain keeps up I will probably insist that we go to a museum. 
Maybe the Tenement Museum, neither of us has visited it yet.
Then JD could listen to someone else talk about the 
three cholera outbreaks that hit the city for a change. 

If we get lucky and the sun comes back, perhaps we will go for a long walk.
I have been trying to get to know the city better.
There are so many parts of it that I have never been to.
We usually stick to the areas we are most familiar with
and hardly ever go uptown.

Oh and, a little update.
My cousin Andrew's band won that competition a few weeks ago.
They will definitely be playing at Bamboozle.
This Sunday they compete again for the chance to play the main stage,
opening for Bon Jovi! I am very excited for them.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful writing!

    I am a big fan of the rain, but now I want more than anything to lay out in the sun and read.



Thank you so much for taking the time to read and share your thoughts. I love hearing from you!
