Heavy weather

In me; sleepless, restless, useless. By the time my mom was ready for a walk, the sun was out, but she was feeling shaky. All she can say is that she feels very old today, and at 88+, she is at liberty to say this!
Late afternoon ramble with the beloved spouse for a macchiato for him and some hot chocolate for me. We stopped at the neighborhood patisserie run by a sweet Japanese guy, and had a nice chat with him. We managed to resist all his gorgeous pastries, except for one delectable oatmeal raisin cranberry cookie, which we shared. Hey, the oatmeal's healthy.
Visited some friends for wine, good talk and photos of their recent trip to Zion National Park. Nice end to a miserable day.
The siege of Leningrad is over, it appears, although Vollmann seems to want to circle back. I'm 250 pages into 752 in Europe Central, and still engaged.

Hell, I feel old today and I'm 45. Maybe an oatmeal raisin cranberry cookie would perk me up...

Rain by the bucket here. Seems like we are becoming more like the Pacific Northwest than the Pacific Northwest...global warming?

Oh, I'm a double macchiato guy myself - not those adulterated varieties pushed at Starbucks...straight espresso - splash of foam.

What, no "double caramel choco-coconut raspberry swirl"? Tall, with whipped cream and jimmies?
man, some of those concoctions look like stuff you used to get at Ye Olde Soda Shoppe!
