Grrrr..... was supposed to go hiking today. I should be getting ready for Lost Maples right now. But my hiking partner blew me off again so here I sit..... grrrrrr........

And to make matters worse, I'm out of coffee. Oh well, I've got a cup of Tazo Chai tea brewing right now, which won't wake me up, but at least I'll feel like I'm doing something.

Last night we had the most spectacularly gorgeous rainbow behind our house. Our house is on a cliff that overlooks a river below, and the rainbow made a complete arc from one side of the cliff to the other... more vivid than any rainbow I've ever seen (you could see every color)... and there was a second one just above it that spanned about halfway across the gorge. I wish I had a camera!

Tonight we are playing with Chris for his CD release party at Cibolo creek... there are around 19 people in this band tonight, so it's going to be interesting logistically! Chris always manages to pull these crazy things off, though, so I'm not worried.

Our first CD release party is next Friday at the Scenic Loop! I'm excited and a little nervous... I hope we have more than 4 people show up. I'm interested to hear what the loyal fans think of the new stuff... we haven't had any feedback yet. I just hope they like it.

Punky and I have started reading "The Chronicles of Narnia" at night before bed. I love Narnia. Narnia shaped my entire existence when I was a kid... so much of who I am today is because I read Narnia in my formative years, I believe. Oh, I loved those stories! And it's so good to be reading them again and sharing them with my son. I was a little concerned that they would be too advanced for him, what with the language being almost Victorian stylistically (it's certainly not "See Spot Run," which is what he is used to). But I remember gaining much of my vocabulary from hearing those books read to me, and they gave me a love for literature and fantasy and depth... I'm sure that's why I ended up majoring in Brit Lit... it's always been close to my heart. Anyway, we're reading "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" right now, so we've only just begun.

As we were reading last night, Edmund had just come into the White Witch's castle, and he finds a stone lion upon entering the courtyard. It reminded me of being in London, stumbling onto the South Gate Lion (I think it's called) at the end of Westminster Bridge, and how much that stone lion looks like what I always envisioned Aslan to look like. I love that lion! I have a picture somewhere... I'll have to post it.

Okay, must... go... clean. My house is ugly.

This post is dedicated to my brother Ed, who has recently relocated to DC, and who loves Narnia as much as I. "Oh, do, let's!"
