Ah, the weekend. It is raw and wet here in Louisiana. Yesterday I sang second soprano in our choir at Lessons & Carols after a couple of days of gargling and Throat Coat tea supplemented with cough drops. Made it through rehearsals and performance, though I'm reedy today. Poor vocal cords! Today the cat and I are doing laundry; her participation is mostly holding down the piles of sorted clothes. A friend brought me red beans and rice, and a bag of shortbread cookies. I am paradoxically lonesome and wanting to be alone. Ambiguity, eres una perra.
