So today I am amidst Lilac Blooms. What a beautiful scent of summer!! Also some fresh scent of lemon as I have just cleaned! You ever notice the way the “lemon-fresh scent” energizes you to clean quicker? I think the citrus puts me in a great mood! Anyways, I am so ready for another great weekend!
Last weekend, I went to visit Nomad and it was glorious. We had no planned agenda except to eat, sleep and yeah sounded enough of a plan to me! We ended up cooking….going to the driving range (where I sucked it up quite nicely), the batting cages (where after 13 years I still kind of got it!!) and Church where there were smells of the city. We drove until the wee hours of the morning thru the country and got lost. It rained later that night as well so the smell of sweet rain fell upon us. We fed the ducks. He lives off a pond set up so the smell of water was pure. I just wish it was a lake to go swim in! He even tried teaching me how to chip a ball using a club. We drank a little wine and it was so relaxing. We walked a little after dinner too. Someone clipped the grass and it made my nose itch. It was just over all really nice! I just cherish that time. Frankly, I dread saying good-bye to him.
Do you ever find that you are just flooded with the smells of comfort? This weekend I hope to be surrounded by fried chicken, apple pie, lake water, some citrus in there and other smells of summer!
It seems as though time is slipping away from me. Any one else feeling like that? Work seems to be killing me and this weather makes it easy for me to be in a funk….can summer come sooner please? I feel like my creative juices are draining out my back-end. (now that’s a glorious visual!)
I must say, I am watching this National Championship with Butler vs. UConn and this is and has been an absolutely terrible game from both teams. Butler has had some beautiful shots but, overall I am rather disappointed. It happens.
I am taking my car in on Wednesday and I am very seriously thinking about telling them to give me a trade in value….10 year VW Bug for a 2010 Jetta…..your thoughts?
This was the most interesting thing I have found today:
So today has been a great day! I had Special Olympics Regional Bowling early this afternoon followed up by a baby shower for a dear friend of mine. The weather was perfect, and everything just worked out great. Everything just was fabulous except for the fact that I cannot stop sneezing!!!
Yes….it is a fact that I am trying to get over a sinus infection now. Yes….also a fact that I can feel so much pressure still behind my sinuses that it makes my equilibrium a little off…almost as though I was pie-eyed (if you know what I mean!) Yes…..I probably hold now the girl who “sneezed the most in a day” Guinness Book of World Records! So I propose the question “why do we sneeze?”…..I consulted the best research tool ever “The Google” and this is what I found…basically we sneeze to get rid of bad particles in our nose. It is our body’s natural reaction to clearing our system out. Here if you actually want to read the “scientific” version: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=why-do-we-sneeze.
No one once said “bless you”! Oh well.
Today has been so low key! So many times I find these are the best days to just chill and find peace in myself. I like to imagine what it would be like on a beach somewhere, imagine me laying out soaking up the sun! I like the idea of it remaining summer all year here but, I like my seasons too much.
see now why can't I be this guy right now?
Well I hope that my night continues to go smoothly. I have to pack tomorrow because I get to go to FLORIDA Monday night! HOLLLAAA!
