Singin' in the...

We recently watched "Singin' in the Rain" with Kidlet. She adores it. The music, the dancing, the funny lady (Jean Hagen) who says "I cain't stand'em"...this movie speaks to Kidlet. We downloaded the soundtrack and we were singing along on the way to school today.

Wish it would rain here. A few drops fell last Saturday but I'm ready for a break in the summer weather. On Sunday there's a break in the heat and I'm going to make french onion soup (even though 82 degrees does not really constitute soup weather).

I need to spend some quality time with my schoolwork this weekend. We are having a test in just over a week and I feel I have a jumble of random information floating around. Sociology just isn't sitting well in my history brain. And while I must toil at teaching myself how sociology ties into the different feminisms, my post-concussiveness is telling me it's time to slow down. When someone finds the magical response to the age old question of "how do I balance what I must do with relaxation?", please let me know.

In my attempts to eek in a little relaxation, I been sneaking a watch of 8 1/2 the past two days. Anouk Aimee is simply gorgeous. Makes me want to cut my hair and wear a pair of very hip glasses. Actually, she looks a lot like my mama did at that age.

We need rain too....it is so dry here. I wear hard contacts and it is excruciating with all the dust getting in my eyes.

yeah, it's been so warm here, too. It rained a bit yesterday, which was nice, and now it's cloudy and misty, which is also nice, but it's not supposed to cool off til next week. I want to make soup and wear socks, darnit!

My answer is yoga. To the relaxation and balance thing. The one hour of it last week did wonders for my state of mind, because I wasn't allowed to think about anything for that hour.
