Have a good weekend

It's gray, it's cold, it's going to rain all weekend.

I spent an hour in traffic, traveling 5 miles. That's the price you pay to live up a two-lane road twisting up into the mountains. This time it was an overturned car on a horseshoe curve, right at rush hour.

But here's the consolation. I had a rare treat, I was able to leave work at 4:00 today.

So instead of going straight home, I went up to Palisades Village and bought some bath soap, that I had run out of, and got a long overdue pedicure. I sat there with my feet in warm water, reading fashion magazines, and relaxed.

Perhaps if I'd gone straight home, I would have landed right in the middle of the accident, which took place around 4:20.

So all that happened to me was that I sat in traffic, listening to "All Things Considered", and I have fresh, pretty, bright new red toenails.

[The Man I Love] is off at a conference. It's just me and Jack. We're going to take a nice long walk this weekend, if the rain will let us. And we'll share it with you.

Nothing wrong w/ a walk in the rain, unless it's not Jack's idea of fun.

NPR has gotten me through heavy traffic on more than one occasion.

We're having beautiful sunshine but it is cold outside.

It's too bad there's no funicular to take you directly uphill.

It's a lovely night here in NY- crisp and clear, with a luverly almost-full moon.

I've been enjoying the fall of rain today. I hope you got your walk in. Bright red toes are fun!
