July Apollo Elevenses

I remember watching the Moon landing.

Everyone’s hungover asleep, but I need to take off in a few minutes here. Our veterinarian is an hour and a half a way. Long story. They can’t see LittleDog for his pesky cough for another ten days but said I could pick up some more steroids. So, I gots to go. I’ll take David Whyte’s What to Remember When Waking with me for the ride.

I’m worried about LittleDog. Sigh.


So, another crazy young person pool party today. Kidling2’s girl arrived last night and we finally got introduced and she seems really fantastic. Why do all young people appear beautiful once you’re no longer a young people? I don’t remember every single person being gorgeous when I was in my 20s….tis a mystery. They are out in the poolhouse and I’m really really hoping this inspires him to move out there and D and I can get the house back to ourselves. That means that the office, which is in the poolhouse loft will have to come back here. It used to be in this nursery/office room off the master bedroom but I’ve since taken that over however it’s not really worked as a “room of my own” because it doesn’t have a door. It would be nice to have him back up there, especially in the wintertime. Not sure D is willing to give up that very cool space, though.

As for today, I’m laying down house rules this time.


I’ve been knitting for babies instead of reading. As soon as I get this last sweater finished, then I’m back to the stack of “to be reads.” Wonder if I’m going to skip my annual summer re-read of Possession this year….that would feel odd.


I just realized in the old days I would have illustrated this kind of post with pictures. Pre-phone days. With the mighty Nikon D. Hmmmm….I really should find my way back to sharing photos.

Yes. Yes. Photos! :-)

Poor little dog. I hope he's okay. Poor wee woof.

I just watched the moon landing on APOD. Even 50 years later, knowing they were going to make it, it's still nail-bitingly tense.

Poor LittleDog.

I need to get myself a copy of Possession. Probably won't read it every year (that place seems to be taken by Foucault's Pendulum right now) but with my love of Victoriana and Byatt's writing it's a crime that it's not already on my shelf. If my organization would allow me to, I'd put it right next to my copy of Robert Browning.
