Juneary


I'm going to take a guess that the person/people who discovered this land mass along the Puget Sound, did so in the summer time, and they started construction to build the city and then fall/winter/spring hit and they said, "Oh shit, what did we do."

It's not unusual to get a month of rain/drizzle/showers/ all the terms sound the same to me, it's just wet stuff.





Here's that gray tarp I was trying to describe, pretty in the movies, but not when you spend your life underneath it. Claustrophobes Beware!



I think the meditations have been helping cuz I'm not in that dark place, in fact I feel like we're living in some sort of science experiment, testing our limits to see how much longer til we all snap and I now have this morbid curiosity about the weather patterns here and what causes this to happen. I never knew a pocket like this existed before and at this point (or at least for today, because it's June 4 and not yet 50 degrees) all I can do is laugh. hahahahohohohohehehehhehheeee

if you don't work, take time to visit nicer weather places. Or move. Is your husband's job so fantastic that he cannot find a new one somewhere else?

Moving isn't an option but you are right about visiting warmer weather places. I didn't do that at all this year and that was mistake number one. I'm an independent contractor for 2 natural products companies and a technology firm so I mostly work from home and commute around Seattle. I try to plan my sales calls on non rainy days but that hasn't been working out so well the last few weeks.

I have lived in Seattle my whole life and I know it can be crazy difficult sometimes to deal with this weather, especially this year when, as of today, we hit an all time record for the most days of rain during the "dry" season. Yay... I began reading your blog because a friend had linked to it and I have always loved your sunny disposition, don't give up! :-) Every 5 years or so we go through one of these crappy weather patterns but we'll make through. I'm sending you warm, happy thoughts from Ballard-hoping it will cheer me up as well!

I just started reading your blog also sent from a friend. Did you used to be a high school teacher?

Nevermind my question above. I realize now after reading more entries that you teach senior citizens. Good for you! Do you work in a nursing home?

K@tie: I do the Kundalini Meditations by Harijwan Khalska. There are 8 chakra clearings that I listen to (try to do 4 one day, then 4 the next- not everyday, maybe 2 times a week so 8 total) It is pretty powerful stuff, the sounds of the gongs alter the vibrations/energy in your body. Do some reading on it first and see what you think. I do recommend it but you have to do it without any distractions (closing my eyes helps) and really just allow yourself to be taken to another place.

Loving the 30's: you're so cute, and I LOVE Ballard. There is a great Mexican restaurant we went to there, can't remember the name but it's super cheap, LONG wait but sooooo worth it. Do you know the one I'm talking about? And thank you for your insight. Depending who I talk to, some say this is unusual (I guess it is if we're finally breaking some records with the rain!) But then others say it typically doesn't warm up til July so who knows!?! I saw the sun for a few minutes trying so hard to break through the clouds but alas, the clouds won. :O(

Patty: I work and volunteer at the senior center in my town which is not attached to a nursing home. There is no living facility there, the seniors are bussed in or they drive themselves or walk. I teach basic computers and a creative writing class and that has been a great outlet for me. If I was teaching high school, probably wouldn't feel the same! :O)

La carta de oaxa! We love that place, the carne asada tacos are my favorite.
