Summer appears to be over in the Pacific Northwest. (Actually, the forecast says we’re going to be in the low 80s this weekend, but go with me here.) We spent our last week of summer in Disney World, and when we got back to Portland on Friday, it was overcast and 70 degrees out. It was chillier than that (and rainy) on Saturday, and I think the season change shocked me into a cold. Or maybe it’s allergies. It’s hard to tell, but either way, I spent Labor Day on the couch with a sore throat and a box of kleenex. It looked beautiful out, but all I got was a look out the window.
I’m not feeling much better today, either, so now that I’m done with work for the day, it’s back to the couch I go. Maybe I can rest enough to feel like a human being tomorrow. I would like to go back outside (and enjoy it).
