Day 105: Run For Cover!

Illustration by Andi/Spork

Hurricane Irene is coming and I am sitting in my mom's kitchen drenched because I waited too long to put her patio furniture away. I was out there when the sky opened up and poured its love down on me. I felt like Rachel McAdams in 'The Notebook' but there was no Gosling, no baby blue 1940's dress and no amazing following scene. Just me, my kitties and a Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee that I ran out to get before all hell broke loose.

Today is about staying inside, curling up with one of my many books I have been meaning to read and enjoying a quiet house. 

For all of you on the east coast, be safe! For all of you in Paris,  Vous me manquez! 


  1. Now that the patio furniture is stowed away, stay safe and dry! We've been following Irene's progress and our thoughts are with everyone in her path...including our "kids" in Boston. If it's any consolation, the weather wasn't great in Paris either. It was raining one minute and sunny the next.

  2. Take care this weekend! Stay dry!

  3. Thanks Shannon and Mary Kay! The worst has passed and now we're all in clean up mode. One more week until Paris... :)
