Lost [Oct. 30th, 2014|11:47 pm]
An unintended late afternoon nap had me waking up an hour after nightfall, thinking it was about to be sunrise. I hate when that happens. Then I went outside and the air was full of the scent of sandalwood. All of a sudden I thought I'd been transported to the 1960s and that incense-burning hippies had moved in next door. But no, the Internets tell me it's still 2014 and most of the hippies have gone bald... but somebody is burning incense somewhere around here— unless the bats have begun bathing with sandalwood soap before going out for their nightly rounds, but how likely is that?

I think I'm still dazed from that nap. Clouds came in this afternoon and turned the mild day chilly in preparation for tomorrow's rain storm, so maybe the sound of rain will soon wash the cobwebs from my brain and I'll make sense tomorrow. Tonight is a total loss, I fear.

Mmm, sandalwood! There's a barista down at Chocolati who looks like a genuine hippie, but she's 30-something, and she always wear a scent that definitely contains patchouli. I loooove patchouli. I'm such a relic.

Did you get that rain today?

There is rain. Quite a bit of it. I'm enjoying it, but I'm sure the kids were disappointed that it came on Halloween.

Yes, that's sad timing for the kiddies. A Facebook friend reported that she only gave out half the candy she'd bought -- because it snowed in Michigan! I'm afraid it may be an interesting winter.

I can tolerate interesting as long as there's a decent snow pack this year. If there is isn't then the local water use restrictions will probably become draconian next summer.
