Overnight, that oppressive heat seems to have vanished into the clouds that are now blanketing Seattle. Silly me went out with no jacket this morning, expecting another scorcher. Instead, it was downright brisk! But I didn’t mind–I don’t like roasting while waiting for the bus!
In other news, I think a pair of crows (or ravens… I can’t tell the difference) have taken up residence in the tree outside my office window. They aren’t there today, but I’ve seen them twice in recent weeks, just hanging out. Now, granted, I have no way of knowing if they’re the same pair as I saw before, because they’re all just BIG black birds. But I swear they’re watching me. They must know about the guys who have got my back. And though the pair on my back don’t have official names, I’m naming the two outside my window Huginn and Muninn. 🙂 [Edit: And they’re back, about 2:45. I can’t see a nest, but I think they live here now.]
And in other other news, discovering halfway through your bus ride that your applesauce container is leaking onto your khakis is not a nice feeling. Every time I wear these pants, they end up with more stains. I think I know why they were at Value Village now… 😦
