Hmm... I seem to be losing some of my momentum. So much so that I forgot to take pictures for half of the day. Sheesh, Sandra... get your game on! It was the kind of morning where we didn't really want to get up, but had to anyway. It was a pretty morning though, soft light and not raining.
Of course I admired my tree on the way to the car. I don't seem to be able to just walk past it without looking... I just know that soon it will stop blooming and this show will be over. I'm enjoying it while I can.
The trees outside of my studio are starting to show some signs of spring. That's promising. I love working in this place, the sounds of the factory mix with the tranquility of the view of the ocean.
I met up with a dear friend that I haven't seen for too long. It was so nice to chat and to catch up. I'm glad that she called and wanted to meet up.
Looking at my shoes, I see that
1. I need to take better care of them and polish them - on the to-do list for tomorrow
2. These are getting so worn out, I can't wait to go to Boston and buy shoes this fall.
3. I hate not being able to buy shoes here... silly small feet.
4. I'm thankful for full mobility.
These days there are so many cars in the parking lot. I love that the building is filling up with action, we have been alone for a long time, so the change is a welcome one. I love walking out and looking at Esjan. I love seeing Viðey from the parking lot (and even better from the rooftop).
Lunch traffic on the way to work. It's so strange that this is my last day before summer vacation. Strange and a little sad.
I was so hungry that I stopped and bought a hot dog and a teeny tiny Coke. This is the first wheat + sugar that I've had in over 5 weeks... It wasn't as good as I remembered and made my stomach hurt. I managed to take two sips of the Coke before giving up and rinsing my mouth out with water. I guess I really don't miss this as much as I thought.
These boys are so fun! They've been a part of a closed friendship building group at the school that I work at. The goal is to help kids that are a little shaky socially and grouping them with others who are not. In this case it worked just as it should. It's so nice to see all of them growing. For our last meeting we went to a local gymnastics center and let them play and then went to the mall for something to eat.
Grocery shopping... I love seeing that, without any thought, my shopping cart keeps looking healthier. And I love those grapes! Half of them are going in the fridge and the other half in the freezer. Frozen grapes are a huge favorite at our house, especially when the girls are here.
The weather was nice, the sky was beautiful as the sun started to set and I really needed some fresh air. I decided to sit outside for a little bit and read before bed. It was actually a little cold so I didn't stay out very long, but I love this time of year. I love bright summer nights, the sun was just starting to set and it was already 10:30. Next week or the week after it won't get dark at all. Right now, this is my favorite season, but I know that after summer is over and the nights start getting long again, I will feel like fall is my favorite season.
