25 minutes ago Hurricane Felix was upgraded to a category 3 hurricane and is headed strait for Belize. It is expected to make landfall (over the entire tiny country) on Wednesday morning as a category 4. Please pray for protection!
Also, I had the strangest thought today: what if this is the last great weekend before fall? The weather is perfect, the company is great (my step-twin and my best friend are sitting next to me) and it seems like when things are this right in life, everything is about to change. The air outside just smells like the end of summer, don’t you think? Anyway, I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy something.
I enjoyed, in random order: molten chocolate, my step-twin, 75 degree weather, Lakeside park, Flattop grill, Hairspray, church, almond lattes at Firefly, The Taj buffet, $3 sparkling wine, Calhoun Street, The Dash, the new Irish pub downtown, Coldstone, Steph, Jill, Dezzy & Kimmy, Sprinky (who is very funny, if you haven’t heard) an authentic Irish-lady sighting—she’ll remain unnamed, Saigon, a warm card from an old friend I’d lost contact with, Barr Street market, and, most importantly, windows down with the VIBE blasting.
I am thankful for the gift of life and for the spectacular ordinary-ness of the weekend. It could be the last great one, you know.
PS: Yes, I am throwing my own good-bye party
