A year is a long time. Too long. I want to go home. Just for a little bit.
Then I am getting a cup of coffee. I want a scaldingly hot cup of coffee from Dunkin' Donuts. I want to sit in my car and drink it. Except I sold my car, remember? You might be thinking, "Drive the Miata, dummy." Here is why that won't work- too low. Awkward at drive thrus. So, gonna have to borrow someone else's car. Or rent a car. I will do my best not to spill it.
After I get a cup of coffee, I'm going to collect my pets. Hope they have some idea of who I am. I miss the dog sleeping next to me (on the floor that is) and the cat sleeping on my feet.
FisherHope they both understand they have a job. And we are all sleeping on the floor this time.
Next is Shady Glen. There are some things in Connecticut that aren't found in Europe. Like Shady Glen cheeseburgers. That is on the list. Maybe hold the burger and just get an order of cheese. Wonder if they do that?
I'd like to take a very long drive. A few hours maybe. Be nice if a lot of it was flat. Nebraska flat. I really get excited when I see flat countryside. I don't know why really. My town isn't flat. Being hemmed in by mountains may have taken a toll. Most days it's beautiful. I don't realize I miss flat until I see flat. Funny how that works.
I want to order a whole pizza and take it home. Only done that once here. Feels weird. I want to restock my makeup at CVS. I want to spend hours in CVS. So does Lauren. I want to pull weeds and trim the roses and rip out the irises. Invasive beasts.
Not these! These I like. These are called, "Wedding Dress", I think.
New Dawn and Etoile Violette Clematis
Except unless it's a cool summer, it will be hot. I hate gardening when it's hot. Perhaps I will make an exception.
Then I'm calling Lena. I'm all done with this hair color. Lena can fix this.
Lastly, I'm going to make a gigantic pitcher of daiquiris, invite anyone who wants to share, and sit on my back porch. Bring your own chair (and maybe one for me?). The porch furniture is in Switzerland. I will have 29 days left. I am open for suggestions.
