If we were having coffee, we’d be huddled indoors with our noses pressed against the windows, which are rain splattered. I’d be drinking a strong cup of tea. What would you be drinking?
It’s our first rainy day in a long time and I’m grateful. We’ve been battling near-drought conditions on my family’s farm, which has been stressful. Irrigating eats up time we need to spend doing other work. We have needed a solid soaking for weeks and it’s finally here! So far, we have gotten over an inch and a half and I expect more will boil up this evening.
I love rainy days. I love curling up in the big armchair with a book. I’ve spent most of my day in the pages of Jojo Moyes’ Silver Bay–so although it looks like I’m in the house, I’m actually on a boat in Australia watching whales. It’s absolutely delightful!
If we were having coffee, you would know that my parents have left for a two-week road trip to Oregon. My brother and I will be holding down the fort while they’re away. Hopefully, we won’t drive each other too crazy. I’m both looking forward to the quiet and dreading it. I’m a sucker for solitude, but also get lonely quickly. I don’t have a very vibrant social life, so chances are good I’ll spend most of my free time these next couple of weeks entertaining myself.
If we were having coffee, I’d give you an update on my job search. I continue to send out a few applications each week and, on Thursday, had a meeting with the Assistant Director of my regional library system. She was in charge of the library I volunteered at in high school and remembered me. We had a long talk about the field of library science in which I asked lots of questions and gave her an application for all the jobs they currently have available. I’m really hoping that something comes of it!
That’s about all my news–we’re in the dog days of summer and life is pretty boring. So I’m going to hand things over to you. What would you share over coffee?
