The Great Escape April 15, 2010

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

Tim’s on his annual I’m-away-on-business-for-a-month trip, and yesterday I got in the car and drove 5 hours to join him here in Portland for a bit of it. Which means I don’t have to obsess about when my neighbor will next come pounding on my door, and I will no longer have to watch TV in a completely dark house hoping he’ll think I’m not home.

I also won’t have to be around for the porch-floors-replacement project, but I’d be shocked if that were completed by my return—bad weather is forecast, after all.

I have a lot of work I have to do, and I did some reading today to get in the mood for this (yet-another) birth control project. But the sun is shining, and I stopped that reading to catch up on blog reading instead, and even though I have nothing to say, which has been my biggest problem of late, I’ve decided I will post anyway just to say hello.

Hello, dear blog friends.

The sun is shining. The bottom of my second-floor window is the height of the top of a blooming cherry. I can see the water of the bay, and there are musicians playing across the street—a guitar and drums. I hear only the drums. Today I picked up lunch for Tim and me (while Tim got in a lunch-break run) at Colin’s very successful sandwich shop. Colin always greets me personally, and even though I’d had to write down what Tim wanted, Colin was able to recite Tim’s usual order before I said a word. Tonight I will go to one of my favorite restaurants, whose chef was a James Beard semifinalist this year and is due to deliver a baby next month—I better get in there while I can. I plan to have my favorite dessert.

Hi Indigo Bunting! Glad you posted. And see, you did have something to say.

I’m so glad you posted too. And that could have been two posts. The last paragraph would easily stand alone!

Have a lovely time in Portland … and enjoy your dessert.
