Door Closing, Window Opening

September 23rd 2018
With Storm Ali (which I heard as “Storm Alley”) blowing through, the weather’s been a bit of a challenge this week. However, I’ve been trying (and succeeding) to maximize my solo time before Fae, my longtime friend from Virginia, arrives Tuesday to ramble with me for a few weeks.

Who knows where your new talent for distinguishing English accents will come in handy. Kiss the snoring Kitty for me.
