So last night it was still raining when I went to bed. I don't know what it's like in your workplace, but in mine it's de riguer to complain about it. Personally I believe there's something serene and wonderful about a good rain... it spreads a blanket of white noise over the city, washes dirt and grime down drains, provides much needed moisture to the green that we all take for granted, and gives a fabulous glow to the city streets.
The weathermen have made me hopeful. They say the rains will gradually lighten and eventually end. There's a good chance that by the time 8:30am on Sunday rolls around, the streets will still be slick but not too wet for the CIBC Run For The Cure. I didn't hit my goal this year, but I did raise over 50% of it, so this is the spot in the post where you picture a big smile on Ms Cin's face while she thanks all the folks who donated so generously, including my new friend Ciera. Do yourself a favour and visit her site - the girl has a delightful way with words.
Anyways, I'm going to have me a low-key weekend --- work on a newsletter, take some photos, play with photoshop, read more of Martha Beck's Finding Your Own North Star, do a little yoga, coddle the furballs, write letters, and if I'm really feeling ambitious, knit. That's right. KNIT.
