Three of the most boring things a blogger can write about are:
2) Why they haven’t blogged in a while.
3) The weather.
I’ve done 1 & 2 many, many times.
Today I am going to treat you to #3.
As of yesterday, it had rained here for 12(ish) straight days. At most, for that period, we got maybe an hour of sun on a few days. We had mist. We had fog. We had thunder storms. And we had torrential downpours.
Things I’ve learned:
1) There is no entry for “building an ark” on Wikipedia*.
2) During a stretch of a lot of rainy days, a little bit of sun will make me run outside to bask in it. (And possibly create and share graphic representations of same in MS Paint.)
3) I like making lists.
(*Wiki did tell me that: “In Greek mythology, Deucalion was a son of Prometheus and Pronoia. When the anger of Zeus was ignited against the hubris of the Pelasgians, Zeus decided to put an end to the Bronze Age with the Deluge.”
(You gotta watch that hubris.)
When I started writing this post, it was lovely and sunny. This morning I actually went back into a few rooms because they were so bright that I thought I had forgotten a light on.
It has already started to cloud over.
Thankfully lovely ladies helped carry the load here last week, as I wasn’t doing a lot of my own writing — not for lack of trying. (Yes, now I am boringly talking about writing.)
At one point, during a monsoon, I started working on a description of the main female character for the new novel idea, but it turned into a word doodle. Of sorts. This is what came out. Let’s call it…
