I am liking these long, slow evenings...
Skyler called, he is on his way out to Inverness. "Bring coffee..... oh shit Mom, I gotta go!" Well, that was disconcerting. I let enough time for the officer to write out his ticket, and then called him back with every intention of not talking, of leaving a message to call me back when he was off the road, and he answered. Worse than a ticket, some ("*&*^%#@^%!!#$%*&*#@$!+? idiot!" is the direct quote) pulled out in front of him, and avoiding them, the tamales spilled. "Oh well, I can fix them..." I have an image of him re-wrapping them before arriving.
I have always appreciated his attitude toward life. He seems so comfortable in it, even when he isn't so comfortable, or circumstances are difficult. He has the "Taurus" stability about him, accepts what is, deals with it. I learn from him, often.There are places where it is snowing, I know. Here, in California, my corner of it anyway, the sun was out all day long, emphatic that it gets to be out and up longer than yesterday. In San Francisco yesterday and today, it was gorgeous. Tonight, back home, I am preparing dinner, and hearing that it is going to freeze tonight. The chickens told me.
We are driving out to Inverness on Christmas day. Emerson and Luna will spend the day and night with Wade, and I am planning on some photographing and writing on the edge of Tomales Bay. I wonder if it will be sunny, foggy, or raining. Possibly all three.
Tomorrow night I am going first to hear Annie(6), and Thomas(4) singing in Christmas Eve Mass. Then I am going to our Center for Spiritual Living and hear Wayne sing in the Christmas Eve Choir and candle lighting. It promises to be beautiful all-around.
