August begins with a bit of happy literary news:
Janelle Elyse Kihlstrom had reviewed CYBORGIA at Melusine! Go visit.
This morning I woke up to a lovely monster storm. There's something cozy about the rain; it reminds me of playing checkers inside and baking vanilla cupcakes and haunted houses.
I am thinking about autumn. I am ready for summer to be over. You can almost smell the harvest coming, all smoky and crisp. I want apples and pumpkins and mums and dry leaves under my feet. I want to switch from iced Luzianne to hot chai. Or perhaps a spicy cider.
I woke up early to make these wonderful muffins that taste like donuts. Guh and double guh. I did a crapload of laundry at 6 in the a.m. and I am working tonight until 10. Who needs sleep anyway? I am hella efficient. Ha.
