Summer = Blech

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Some/most of you have heard me discuss this in the past. I do not like hot weather. I prefer wearing a jacket and/or scarf, jeans, etc. I can put together much more creative outfits for cold weather, I decided last week. It's totally uninspiring when it's so blasted HOT. Now, if we lived in a more fun-hot climate (which I wouldn't like during the months of October-April), as in there is a beach nearby, it may be more tolerable. But still. The beach is nice in doses. Bright sunlight hurts my eyes.

Not trying to be Debbie Downer. Reading the Twilight series has revealed a deep longing for me to someday live in the Pacific Northwest. Now that's my kind of climate...cloudy/rainy/cool...jackets all year around, green foliage, mountains, water, the whole package. Maybe I'm supposed to be a vampire? Nah...but geez, I'm not looking forward to the next 4 months (come on, let's be honest, September is hot too).

Engagements all around... Scott's next!

So for the past two Saturday nights, Jonathan and I have had the pleasure of each having a sibling to get engaged. First my Marthie to our pal Dudley, and then Stephen J to the wonderful Amanda! We are so excited for both nuptials, as both significant others already belong in each of our families! So, we have busy autumn seasons coming up, as both weddings will most likely take place in November and October, respectively.

In other news, I have begun reading the much-acclaimed Twilight series, by Stephanie Meyer. It's crazy how fast this book reads, and how interesting I'm finding it. Maybe it's the setting of Forks, Washington, that's so captivating. I spent about 30 minutes yesterday researching the town itself, and it's fascinating to me--the climate, the geography, her descriptions of mossy trees and low-hanging clouds. Thanks, Kristy, for your recommendation, as well as my sister-in-law Nikki! (Don't be scared away by the young adult classification, btw.)
