What a time it has been, lost power last night and only now just got it back. It was a bit weird ( no, of course I was not frightened being alone in a dark house with no one
around and severe storms raging
) Simply called Malena on my cell and told her she was going to talk to me till I went to sleep, whenever that happened
, and of course, it being two hours earlier there, and her being a LITTLE Nocturnal, this was not a problem.
One might think that the loss of power in an entire town and the street turning into a sea of mud might halt the DEStruction
going on outside my house, but NO, those loyal devoted men were out at 6:00 AM , right on schedule.
I always wondered ( well, no not really ) how one would go about taking out a concrete sidewalk, and now I know. Clears up a lot of nagging questions ( well, no not really ) but in case you are curious, they take a steam shovel, huge THING with the scooping action and BANG it on the sidewalk until it gives up the ghost. This is not quiet. Not at all.
There being not much else I could do today at Work, I spent the day in the garden, ( except for running around trying to find an open store to buy candles, flashlights and ice, nearly jumped the man with the ice truck we did ) weeds , weeds , weeds! How do they grow so fast???? This would have been all very nice, and indeed, I thought, how relaxing, no e-mail, no phones, me and the veggies, ahhhh
, Earth Magic, I shall tend the little guys and connect
At least I thought that for the first 5 minutes. It topped 90 here today.
I came home today to find , well, a HUGE hole in my front yard. My front yard is a very steep hill and this hole took out half the bank. Like if you fell in it, it would be Bad. I asked the workers, something tactful, like " HEY what the heck???" and they, when they were done laughing, told me, " well, They said we needed to go in that far"
Who are they and what are they doing??????
( I would have pictures of this Amazing Hole , but I took some HAIRSPRAY to my gig the other night , as I was having
a truly bad hair day, and the top was coming off and hairspray gel
stuff went all over my purse , coating my camera in goo, which was , apparently the last straw for the already on it's last legs camera )
The storms went onto 3:00 AM and along about 5:00 Adventure Kitty , Venus Seaweed discovered another wonderful thing about Adventure Land ( which is my bed , hours of fun to be had with a Sleeping Person, mountains
to climb, acres to race across, and when Sleeping Person starts , in desperation
, to kick out at Adventure Kitty, well, that only adds to the fun ) But Sweet Venus discovered that there is a subterranean
facet to Adventure Land. Yes, she can now go UNDER the covers. A Cave of wonder and delight.
I write this to give you a wee look into my day, just in case you thought it was all glamorous
video shoots, gigs full of adorning fans and Hollywood movies....And because I am now home, with power, have eaten dinner, SHOWERED and have many episodes of SVU
, Top Chef and Gene Simmons Family Jewels
( yes, the secret is out, I LOVE that show, ) to watch until I go to sleep. ( very, very soon..)
And I can laugh abut it.
Love and the Good Life,
