What does Tuesday morning feel like?

On the Tuesdays when I'm doing my USUAL thing... it feels like silver. It's cold... at 4 am when the alarm goes off. But I slip right into the shower, then wisk through the kitchen and into the car w/ the cold leather seat at 5 am ... to hurry up and get on the freeway and dart my way through traffic to get to work. Then it feels like artichoke green... where I walk into the investment firm with carpet the color of money and sit down and do my thing.

BUT TODAY... it feels like blue. It's drizzling outside... and that makes me happy! It's 7:15 am ... and I'm still at home. Here I quietly sit... listening to Norah Jones and drinking my espresso from my favorite porcelain mug from Starbucks (which my dear husband so thoughtfully cleaned for me last night knowing I'd want it first thing this morning).

Today I fly to Oregon to spend a week with my parents, grandparents and lil' brother and sister-in-law. My uncle and his wife will fly in later in the week and we will bake and cook and most likely sing together and laugh like no family has laughed... and reminisce and share our life experiences... and hopefully the girls will all go out and get massages while the boys play tennis... and we'll go for country drives...

And then it will feel orange and rusty. And I can't wait for that feeling!

Now you are enjoying the orange and rusty and the blue too. Cause it is raining here in Oregon.

A few minutes ago it started and my husband, Walt (sounds funny coming from Auntie Sooz, huh??? "my husband" said, yeah it is supposed to rain for the next 2 weeks. All I could say inside myself was YES!!! But then an Oregonian doesn't get so excited about 2 weeks of rain. Only rain lovers previously from California.

Maybe some day you too, will enjoy the blue and rain of our beautiful Oregon weather!!!

Love you!
