Belated Saturday

The moon turned gibbous during the cloudy nights, and now flaunts its light in a clear sky. Though the night has turned cool the frogs seem pleased enough with it and are croaking loudly. It must be a bit too cool for the crickets, though, as they are silent. It will warm soon enough, and I might have frogs and crickets and the scent of jasmine all at once for a week or two. The flowers are about to open, and a few warm days and mild nights will probably do the trick.

Now if I could only get the computer to stop being dickish. I told it to post this entry ten minutes ago, and it still hasn't done it.

Fifteen minutes ago. Digital mess.

There's been disruption the last couple of weeks and things are in disarray, which has put me out of sorts. The plans I had were demolished, and I can't make new plans until the disruption ends. The post-disruption plans are apt to be quite different than the pre-disruption plans, so I feel displaced and uncertain. What little routine I had left is now gone, and I miss it sorely. I'll be glad when things are back to normal— or what passes for normal anymore.

Naturally in this state I forgot things at the store today, and will have to go out again to get them. More disruption, but minor compared to what else is going on. One good thing is that the pine pollen is diminishing. We're not supposed to be using water to wash pavement this year, but I washed that in the back yard anyway to rid myself of what pollen was there. I hope I don't have to do it again. The neighbors might rat me out to the water police. What a year this is turning into!
