Upcoming birthday musings...

It has cooled down considerably in Logan this afternoon. It's actually a bit gusty and I can taste some upcoming rain on the tip of my tongue. I love summer storms. I love the possibility of lightning.

I remember once in August when we danced in the streets during a downpour. We suddenly got news that my sister collapsed during color guard practice and had to be rushed to the hospital. Suddenly the rain was much less cheery and I felt so relieved when I saw my mother's headlights coming down the street so I could run and tell her what had happened.

But for the most part, I love summer storms. I love the thickness of them, the clean and sweet everything is after.

Lawrence is having a birthday party tonight and I suppose I'm crashing it. I didn't feel the need to plan anything big this year after last year's activities. Monday we are having a barbeque out on the (sigh) deck and for me, that'll do.

For the most part, it was a rough year.

But it ended well.
