Internetless Wanderings

…I just have to use my imagination! How strange!

While I do have the internet at the office, we haven’t gotten it installed in our new place yet. Coupled with a broken laptop, and a touch of the flu – I may just turn into cranky T. Really… who gets the flu when the weather’s so warm and beautiful out? *insert grumbles* I DEMAND COOKIES OF APPEASEMENT.

The move went well, but the new house is in a state of half-painted smelliness. It’s gotten to the point that if I look at the colour yellow, I get a bit queasy thinking about the odour.

But as a lovely surprise, we’ve discovered hummingbirds hanging out around the house. They like sipping  on the massive honeysuckle vines that are blocking the front entrance. I don’t mind having to duck under it because it smells amazing when it’s in bloom (right now). We’ve also discovered a gigantic rosemary bush, what I think are white currants, grapes, and strawberries growing in the garden. Our neighbour’s got a massive fig tree that overhangs into our yard, and lucky little me can’t wait till they’re ripe.

I hope next time I’ll have things sorted out, and a real update for you. Are you enjoying the beginning of summer?

  1. I remember after Hurricane Sandy I didn’t have internet at home for ten days, and that was interesting. Frustrating (it was difficult to find out when I was supposed to go back to work — that’s when I bought a smart phone for the first time), but I think I got quite a bit of writing done.

    My ambivalence about the internet is probably shown by the fact that I write about a world where it doesn’t exist. 🙂

    I should write more about cookies, though…

      I’m all for more stories with cookies 😉

      (Mostly I use the internet for cloud storage of my writing files/resources, so it’s a bit of an inconvenience syncing everything without the internet.)

      1. Well, truth be told, I know how that is. I’ve spent a lot of time over the past year and a half – a lot more than I’ve spent writing – waging a just and holy war against wild violets (which are not as pretty as their name makes them sound) and various other types of weed and trying to cultivate a lawn that I think looks fun to play in.
