Still reading The Brothers Karamazov, and scrambling to finish it before book club tonight! Just like being in college again. Next on my list are Tatiana Soli’s The Forgetting Tree and T.C. Boyle’s San Miguel. Time for some California-themed diversion!
Unpacking from our Palomar/San Diego trip and feeling so grateful for the wonderful time we had.
Getting back into the groove of my weekday routine.
Eating corn and avocados almost exclusively (well, except for my entirely failed sweet lime frozen yogurt…but one bite of that was more than enough!)
Waking up really early some days and just going with it. I love having the quiet time to read or write or call my mom before she goes to work.
Booking plane tickets for an unbelievable trip to a place I’ve always wanted to go!(!!!!) The opportunity to go just dropped in our lap over the weekend, and I am beyond excited about it. I will tell you all about it as soon as we’ve got the details squared away, but right now we are still pulling our hair out a bit over the plane tickets and hotel choices. Hint: it is not the world’s easiest place to get to.
Pinching myself. Hard. (See above).
Feeling really grateful that this summer has not yet been as hot as the last one. Cherishing my sunhat and my air conditioner, and the fact that I can spend most afternoons indoors.
Adoring the prompt for One Little Word this month, feeling so close to my word (open), and thinking I may just have to do it every month.
Feeling super pumped to get back to some of my projects that don’t travel well.
Looking forward to some fun hangouts with friends that are coming up this week.
Showing up late to the currently post because I was away from my blog calendar too long.
Loving that life is full of unexpected adventures, routines and variations from them, hugs and kisses and nectarines and blueberries. There’s so much to smile about.
