there’s a lovely bush covered with hot pink flowers that is currently blooming in the front yard. i took these pictures a few days ago after a rainstorm.
spring isn’t too bad. there are flowers and soccer and it’s not freezing and it rains for days on end. my friends complain about the rain, but i rather like it. i like falling asleep with a storm serenading me through the window. it’s raining at the moment, and i guess i could say that it’s actually making me happy? that’s rare.
i’m reading a book called the screaming staircase, by jonathan stroud. it’s part of the lockwood & co. series. it’s about an infestation of ghosts in london. the main character is part of a small agency that gets rid of the spirits by destroying their “source” — something that their soul is closely bound up with, which allows them to appear in the living world. it’s quite good, although i made the mistake of reading it at two a.m. that glow next to my desk is definitely otherworldly residue left by a ghost.
p.s. mckenna/xenoloser just started a blog called alternate galaxy (which makes me look at my blog’s name and wonder why the heck i picked something as bad as “let’s be lost”). she’s a really amazing girl, so you should definitely go check that out.
