Back from the UK!

Just got back and was reunited with Holly after nearly 3 weeks!

Warmer than I'm used to :) 81F and quite humid (and everything looks very dry).

Last walk in the woods...

... for 3 weeks.

I'm dropping Holly off to the Heffernan's this afternoon for her vacation with Violet & Sparrow. I think she'll have a fabulous time (and so will we!), but I shall miss her.

Overcast with patchy sunshine and 78F.

Quite looking forward to putting on jeans and a sweatshirt when we get to the UK in a few days :)

The weather doesn't know what to do: 80F, humid, rain showers, sunshine, and thunder in the distance!

Song With No Name
Heaven 17
Penthouse and Pavement
(We mentioned this album in conversation yesterday so I pulled it up and added it to my Google Music library- it's amazing, I haven't listened to it in probably 25 years and I can still sing along with all the songs!)

Still listening to Welcome to Nightvale, episode 7, History Week.
