you know the days when you have a long to-do list and not an ounce of inclination to complete said list? today was certainly one of those days for me. i had the best of intentions, outlining all i had to do on paper (much harder to ignore when it’s splayed across a page in red ink). but. the sun beckoned. and i was only too happy to give in. how could i not? the weather is in its prime…before the HEAT of savannah summer. sunny, not an ounce of humidity, and warm. i know that i won’t always have the leisure of dropping all that i’m doing to rejoice in the sun. so. i slipped into my new (clean) plaid shirt from yesterday’s thrift magic and my moccasins, grabbed my copy of anna karenina and a towel, and marched myself to the thick of the park. it was teeming with people and dogs. i plopped myself down and read and absorbed vitamin d. heaven.
i am so glad that i seized this opportunity, because i know otherwise i would have puttered around the apartment wishing i was outside. besides, it’s friday and i have all night to be productive.
on a different, yet somewhat related note…this morning i had my coffee on our back patio and caught up on my blog-reading (you guessed it!) in the sun. i can’t get enough. anyway. when i went outside to leave for the park i spied a large and unusual creature in my chair from earlier. no worries, i went national geographic on him for you:
all i have to say, is thank you, god that did not decide to crawl on me or try to sit on my lap earlier. also, i promise that i did not harm this creature. unlike the unfortunate roach that came at me this morning. he, is dead as a doornail. thank you clorox greenworks. you pulled through on the clutch.
things i’m looking forward to this weekend? 1) evan dressing up as the state farm “good neighbear”, i promise to document this too in national geographic style. 2) seeing alice in wonderland. 3) starting some new projects. 4) getting more sun.
happy friday, friends!
