Rain, rain, rain

Last week we had days of consecutive sun. Briefly we turned on the central air to alleviate the heat that accumulated in our bedrooms. I may have, during a weak moment, perhaps after a particularly violent bout of tree pollen induced sneezing, wished fleetingly for a small rain. I apologize.

The weather has turned from May’s sudden promise of summer to a dreary, if flower-laden, damp chill reminiscent of October’s worst. I have had to don socks. Outrageous!

Fortunately I recently finished knitting a pair. Small consolation.

Wet lilacs.

On the plus side: The sneezing has abated. And the greens and bright colors of spring are as lovely drenched as they are bathed in sunlight.

Now, if I could just shake this migraine. Stupid sinuses.


About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.

    Ugh on the rain. We’ve had too much, too! The flowers are so lovely, though! Can’t wait until the floweringcrabs bloom. Magnolias are pretty now, though!
