Yep, concert cancelled

On the plus side, I was home to do sunset attunement. *sigh*

I never got a call from dad. Although the rain was steadily oozing northward on the radar and it was overcast, not a drop had fallen, the roads were bone-dry and it seemed fairly bright. I thought there was a chance the concert might squeeze in, and I was sure they hated to have to cancel yet again. So I packed my stuff and drove over to Townsend. But when I got to the Common, there was nothing going on, so I just came home. Maybe dad thought I’d assume they’d cancel based on the facts that there is a flood watch up, we’re supposed to get 2 to 4 inches of rain tonight and they’re calling this storm “a summer Nor’easter.” (What, another one? *wry look*)

It’s July 23!! We really are having A Year Without A Summer. Although, unlike 1816, at least we aren’t having snow and killing frosts.

I did workout early, so my whole night is now clear to continue proofreading and correcting the ARC of Cat the Vamp and work on the covers for Gideon Redoak, among a lot of other tasks on my To-Do list. I already got the LCCN for Cat the Vamp! That’s the last thing I needed. Nice to know that the Library of Congress is doing its job efficiently–they can have all my tax dollars, that’s for sure!

I’ve officially lost 35 pounds now. I feel like I have a lot more than ten pounds to go, though.

    Ugh, yes, I remember that part of my original weight loss journey. I’d set myself goal weights, get to them, and think, “Hmm, I thought I’d look more fabulous at this weight.” And then I’d set a new one, and think the same thing, and set a new one…

    Rasputina did a song about that. It’s one of my favorites.

    35lbs?! Don’t lose too much or you’ll disappear.

    It’s very cool here, too. It’s good for the corn, which likes cooler temps to pollinate. See, you can take the girl off the farm, but you can’t take the farm outta the girl.

    Yep! Trouble is, you can set a goal but you don’t really know what you’re going to look and feel like until you get there. That’s especially true for me, because I was obese by the time I was 2. Only once before in my entire living memory (half a century’s worth) have I ever been, briefly, a “normal” BMI, neither obese nor overweight. I’ve also been exercising very hard for years so every time I get to a weight, my body is different than the last time. But now…I’m through the looking glass. I have to take it a step at a time because this has never happened before.

    Not a chance. :-) I’ve still got plenty of body fat! I’m barely five feet tall if I straighten my spine, inhale, and look up. :-)

    I didn’t know that about corn! Funny, I thought corn needed it warm and dry–it’s wind-pollinated. But I guess plants like moderation, too hot is as bad as too cool.

    I’ve got lots of little tomatoes started on my tomato plants now, but I never count my tomatoes (or anything else) before they’re ripe. *wry smile*

    It’s been rainy and cool here in Toronto too, the coolest summer since 1992. Actually I like the cooler weather (as opposed to stifling heat) but the humidity is killing my hair! Talk about cotton candy…
