On a happier note, here are good things. Denugis is reblogging seriously calming, beautiful things on tumblr. Zubenpics reblogged some lovely quilts. The sun is out. M&Ms with breakfast. Tai chi tomorrow. Winter sunrises can be beautiful. I took these last week with my ipad in between getting breakfast and school bags packed.
On a fandom note, SPN got renewed for its 11th season. I went with my kid and her Science Olympiad team to a meet this weekend and several schools shared a big lecture room as a place to wait between events. These are sixth to eighth graders so ages 11 to 14 at the most. During the day, boys playing hangman on a white board with words like Lambourghini, Maserati, and Ferrari had a guess for '67 Impala, black'. Just before we left, a girl from one of the other schools wrote Supernatural in big letters and drew a bunch of devil's traps on the white board. These kids were toddlers when the Pilot aired. They are probably watching SPN and Jensen and Jared the same way I watched Magnum, PI and Tom Selleck and later Miami Vice when I was their age. Fortunately neither Sam or Dean sport white linen or loud floral. Maybe Hawaiian plaid in S11. Maybe they can just go somewhere warm. Maybe we all can.
[Coming back to finish writing this entry three hours later, I had worked out a plan to go to a grocery store that has a post office counter so I could pick up the peanut butter and mail some letters that were to go out today. I planned to do all this after I took my kid to get a tooth filled. As I was pulling up to her school parking lot, I realized that I left the letters on the counter at home. Arghhhhh. My memory must have decided it was going somewhere warm even if the rest of me wasn't. I did end up getting peanut butter so the apocalypse has been averted for today. Tomorrow is another day and we are supposed to get a warming trend so things are going to get better.]
