today was much better than yesterday, thank you for asking. i blame the solstice full moon lunar eclipse for all the whacked-out moodiness lately. yes, i believe in the power of astrology. today, fortunately, i woke up feeling optimistic. (funny how that moment of waking can define your entire day.) i took off in my trusty pickup for the usual errand-running to procure the necessary groceries for the week, a much needed departure from tiny town. i admit: sometimes i start to feel trapped in this little village, especially after a few days of putting my "nice face" on to play shopkeep. a little wide open space, a little eye candy out-and-about, and a full fridge later, a girl is bound to feel as good as new.
