Today marks a week of straight of nonstop wind and water and sporadic bouts of sunlight that vanish in about two whole minutes.
We’re officially rained in here in Oban. Ferries have cancelled. A boat named The Elizabeth washed up on the bay in the wrong spot. I’m not sure if my umbrella is an appendage or just a lost cause. BUT WHAT ELSE ARE SUNDAYS FOR? I’ve written a rained-in recommendation list for you nice readers. Don’t act like it isn’t comforting to be trapped indoors when it’s cold.

Whenever I visit my aunt in Colorado I never, ever want to leave that place! Denver is seriously so cool it hurts. Last week I hiked, maintained a regular sleep schedule, partook in an herbal tinctures class (we imagined lab coats and goggles…we were wrong), ate fresh vegetables from the garden, spent way too long in Innisfree Poetry Bookstore in Boulder, got reprimanded for sneaking photos of the Tom Wessleman exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, and drove through windy, rainy mountains in Golden. More importantly, spending any time at all with my aunt feels like a spiritual retreat (she has degrees in horticulture and chinese medicine, is a practicing acupuncturist and full time nurse at a center for juvenile boys- where she started a book club….. you get the idea.) with a good bit of hysterical laughter. Nothing better.
