What Kind of November In Saskatchewan Is This?

On Sunday, Aidan and I walked around with our coats open. It was that warm. I did it again today. What's up, Saskatchewan? You're freaking me out.

Grace in Small Things No. 957

  1. I had a late Sunday brunch with Aidan, which was late enough to actually make it lupper, in a big, beautiful, empty room at Malt City.
  2. I finally bought plants a while ago after many plantless years, and I am committed enough that I bought potting soil and larger posts for replanting this week. 
  3. The flu I had that turned into a sleep-at-least-12-hours-a-day thing for another week has finally ended. Feeling awake after a couple of weeks of exhaustion is so good.
  4. The fall weather is holding out for a long time this year. It's late November and it still doesn't hurt to be outside. This is a climate I can deal with.
  5. I love diet Pepsi, and I don't care who knows.

Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in Grace in Small Things,

Blackout Poem #8

The following blackout poem was created using a randomly chosen page out of Stephen King's Joyland. In this case, I used page 43.

His hard-wearing routine
was the only friend he had.

Too bad the Thought Police
ride that dark tunnel,
that graveyard track.
