solstice dreaming

June 21, 2017

I spent yesterday in a floaty muumuu frock and nothing else. It was about a billion degrees. I had four glorious coaching sessions, two short naps and drank 5 bottles of fizzy water. The house was covered in grumpy furry beings. And today is supposed to be hotter. So that’s excellent news. We are at the […]

where will you be 15 June 2020?

June 15, 2017

I poured my coffee while Bodhi chomped away at his kibble (tied to the fridge so he doesn’t chase the cats).
