2 posts in one day!

Its like there's some kind of crazy procrastination thing going on, as if I had something else I should be working on and choose instead to blog about random things... oh. Yeah. That would be my overdue submission for crit group. Hahaha.
I have an assignment, late-given though it was, at least. How did the Captain of the boat meet her Magician? I envision their partnership heavily influenced by the Aubrey-Maturin partnership in Patrick O'Brian's books. (With which I am absolutely obsessed currently. They alternately make me choke up with emotion and crack up with hilarity, with some moments of confusion and mundanity between.)

However! In addition to the randomness of my writing assignment, we are also in the middle of a super-fun record-setting drought here in East Texas. And after temperatures so high for a few days that raw foodists couldn't have eaten a damn thing outside without a special dispensation, we're finally, maybe getting a break. Unfortunately the break comes in the form of scattered thunderstorms, which will tragically cause flash flooding rather than actually relieving the drought. Damn weather. Still, the lower temperatures (Highs only in the 90s! Heavens!) will be a great relief, and if the rain could just stretch out into near-constant gentle showers for six months straight, we might not lose all the trees in the damn county.

I love our trees!
