this morning i arrived back west. back to california. i've been in the great plains!
visiting mama & sister moss
it was well over 100 degrees all 5 days of my visit. except today. which is when i left and flew home. at the crack of dawn.
when we weren't traipsing around the steamy streets i sat in the cool a/c and read and read and read and read. one of my favorite summer reads so far. based on real women fossil hunters from jane austen's time. riveting. it was officially unputdownable.
then to round up my azheimer/memory loss trilogy i read this. excellent.
when i wasn't reading we drove through cool neighborhoods in kansas city.
in kansas there are lots of houses with screened in porches. i really wanted to knock on doors and ask if i could sit and read on their screened porch. but then i would have had to ask to be fanned at the same time. and spoon fed crushed ice. and had an icebath drawn for my red hot feet.
you can see where this is going.
