Rainshadow Sunshine

As the days get shorter, I’m super happy to live in a rainshadow where I can wake up and bask in sunshine for a few hours without cloud cover or nonstop drizzle.

I’m also way excited about this tuna-fish sandwich. I remember hating tuna-noodle casseroles and tuna-fish sandwiches as a kid (I fucking HATED mayonnaise and the smell of hot tuna baked in goo used to gross me the fuck out so bad). But today … YUM.

 

 

In spite of feeling happy in the sunshine, I found myself asking what the fuck my purpose is. Then I turned to look out the window and this chubby little charcoal-ombre bird said TO FLY. And, like, feel the sun on your puffed-out chest!

I hate being so absent from my own site, but I’m getting better at prioritizing. Right now my top priority is redesigning the free area of DeliaTS.com. The magically-efficient good news about that is that all of the work and learning I’m doing with that project will pay off here, and on all of our other sites. Tools have changed A LOT (and so have we) since I started building websites in 2001. I’m excited to implement complex features and more-efficient methods we could only dream about fifteen years ago.

High Winds & Rainbows

Day-Before-Yesterday Rainbow

Day-Before-Yesterday Rainbow

After a year full of SUN SUN SUN SUN SUN and hardly any rain, we’re finally being dragged into winter. We’ve had some weather the past few weeks with lots of wind, power outages, and some cold nights in the twenties.

High wind warning an excellent excuse to close early!

High wind warning an excellent excuse to close early!

It’s at the point where people around here get these warnings and just want to avoid all of our machines taking dives and/or hearing our battery backups start beeping. After months of our main data storage being down (and lots of our raw content+ inaccessible) I feel the same way, like “I don’t want my shit to suffer more possible power surges nor do I want to try to work on something only to have the power and/or internet connection go down”.

And I kind of like it, the excuse to just feel the air swirling around and feel it hitting the house and be thankful I’ve never had a tree fall on my head.

The high winds didn't materialize that day ... but they did the next!

It’s funny that they sent this Thursday when the winds didn’t happen but on Friday … the wind came without any text. Maybe nobody wanted to give another false alarm so our local emergency service didn’t alert us. I’m a little weirded out by how much I respond to our county’s emergency texts, like they’re my one friend in the community who wants to call me up and ask if my power is on or not. I don’t mean I respond by replying, just that I feel like a real interaction is happening that makes the weather so much more official and impactful. It makes me remember that the little plot I occupy on the grid is surrounded by neighbors. Usually that makes me apprehensive but somehow these texts make me feel welcomed in a very non-threatening way. Because it’s NOT a real interaction and I don’t have to say anything back.

I think the high wind warning expired a couple of hours ago and we got some more rainbows:

More rainbows as the winds die down

It gets dark early here; sunset is on the schedule today at 4:18.

By the time normal people get off work and eat dinner, it feels like we must be up past our bedtimes.

I’m not a normal person, so bedtime is whenever I say it is. At this time of year it seems appropriate for it to be allllllllll evening, like seven to seven.


Welcome Home Nudie Pics

Yesterday I was supposed to take it easy to keep the pukey migraine I got the night before at bay, and because it was supposed to be my second day off for the week. So I didn’t take any fresh nudie pics (hence these cozy samples from my latest members-only gallery). I also failed to actually take the day off, though.

Don’t get me wrong, I did manage to accomplish almost nothing of value, but instead of doing anything fun or relaxing or just closing my eyes on the pain in my head, I frittered hours and hours and hours away compulsively checking stats and stupid things on the internet. Oh, and I masturbated (quickly, very quickly!! Like that somehow excuses it instead of just indicating that I get so turned on by fucked-up shit that I orgasm super fast) to a pretty fucked-up/questionable video and worried about people finding out that I’m a disgusting human being.

The good news is I haven’t played any computerized solitaire games in a couple of months. Not on my phone, Kindle, or computer. I should spend more time sitting on the stoop sipping a hot mug of whatever flashing my panties.

The first couple days of fall I had some mixed feelings about the days getting shorter, but now I have that magic feeling of anticipating the coziness and enchantment of autumn, like the way the full moonlight looks shining down on & reflecting off of the glossy salal leaves around our place and all of the stories I might get to read and how much fun it is to clamber into bed with Delia knowing we have hours of darkness to dream inside. I just need more practice taking advantage of the time I take off to actually do things I want to do instead of being afraid to seize those moments mindfully, with complete freedom and ease.
