Rain oh mighty.

I’ve been getting a little sick of the gray existence that is the Willamette Valley.
I mean, it started about 5 years ago, but boy I’m serious now about being over it.

The thing is, I feel like the rain “problem” is similar to say, a weight problem:
If I decide I want to change it, it will be fixed!

Well I’m no weather man, I have no rain dance, and I’m hardly in the mood
to learn some black magic which will make the sun come out.

I just think that the weather
has gone too far this time.

It’s gone too far into the spring, and has proceeded to play dirty.

Yes, the cow is adorable...but I'm still pretty upset about this.

Cancelling Easter Egg Hunts? Really rain, really?
Where does it stop?
Are you going to do away with fireworks this year for the 4th of July too?
Think of the children!

It’s just my luck that the only climate change I might see is the increase of gray skies.

I think I’ll watch a little It’s Always Sunny… and pout.




I’m not actually talking about pancakes or other edibles,
(for once).

I just need some adventure. Discovery. Purpose.
I don’t see it on my horizon.

Kinda seems to me that adventure needs a pioneer.
It doesn’t just wander up to the bored and curl up in their lap.
(Notes to self: 1. Name next cat Adventure. 2. Make sure, unlike Tipper, Adventure actually likes me.)

Road trips are my soul food.
They feed my desire for change of scenery, adventure, usually the great outdoors, and bonding with friends.
Aaaaaaand, there’s probably some junk food to be had in there. (Minor details.)

Gone on any good adventures lately?
I’d love to hear about them.
