Vapor trail

I think most of us can look up at the sky at almost any time and see a contrail. I looked up a couple of evenings ago and saw this one! We certainly watched them when we were little kids on the moominbeach and I remember when my friend Kathie mis-heard “vapor trail” as “paper jail”. She and her twin brother were sweet friends of ours (my brother and I). Kathie died a few years ago after a long period of problems that began with a horrific car accident.

But today. I met my mouse down at the farmers market as early as we could both get there, which was 7:00 AM-ish. The market is starting to hop into the season and we saw the GG’s girlfriend Victoria of Protective Fish fame and we bought stuff from the beautiful Helen of Lake Divide Farm and a few other booths and then we sat inside for a bit checking our phones and whatever. My mouse and I hugged goodbye and went off our separate ways which was okay because we both had stuff to do. Still, I wanted to hold on a bit longer. How did I end up with my beautiful daughters? It is so scary to initiate a pregnancy and there are so many things that can go wrong. And then when everything goes right and you manage to birth a perfect baby you have all those years of raising that kid. I won the lottery with my kids. That is about all.

I didn’t see any contrails today. It was rainy all morning with occasional thunderstorms rolling through. The rumbly kind, nothing severe. Not very warm, mid 40s. Beautiful weather. I do wish I could be sitting outside this afternoon but it isn’t quiiiiite warm enough for that.

    I feel like I won the lottery with my girls also. They are my best friends. I see contrails all the time since I live in the SeaTac flight path. 🙂

    My mom told me that when I was very little, I’d point point at a plane with a contrail and say, “Look! That plane has a pencil in its behind!”

    I know what you mean about winning the lottery. My heart overfloweth!
