walking home after Dorian hurt my heart a little bit…all those trees :(
ice cream with a mix of warm caramel sauce & warm strawberry sauce in a waffle bowl has been my new obsession
my feet are cold
i am feeling a little burnt out. and maybe a little sad. i know i am usually go, go, go but lately…i just feel like i want to sleep, sleep, sleep. maybe it’s the change in season. maybe it’s too much ice cream.
great lake swimmers are playing at kings playhouse and i can’t wait!
i need a haircut
i literally just found my photos from my trip to fundy park…i wanna go back!
the fact that it’s 7:30 and almost dark out makes me wanna cry a teeny tiny bit. i am not ready! i want more summer.
and ice cream. i want more ice cream. sigh.
i went all morning thinking today was Wednesday
new favorite thing.
my pen bled a little on this card
which made me sad
but the ballerina bunnies?
they made me incredibly happy!
this sunshine just makes me think
of beaches and bare legs,
ice cream sundaes and parades,
birds chirping outside my window,
dirt roads, air shows,
getting lost on hiking trails,
bonfires and music outdoors…
sleeping with the window open,
driving with nowhere to go
and no one expecting me…
If you follow me on Facebook,
(not only do you know that I post WAY too much but…)
you probably also know
that I love music.
I can’t sing.
I don’t know a note.
I can’t tell pitch or tone or anything else…
but I know what I like
and I can’t go a day
without listening to music.
I have to have a playlist
on all night while I am sleeping.
I listen to music in the car,
while I’m painting, cooking, cleaning, working…
I just lay on the
couch or the
bed or the
and lose myself in the darkness
and the words
And I will listen to almost anything…I’m pretty open…
I can honestly say there is no genre that I refuse to listen to
anything from…though there are definitely songs that I don’t like….
(and…I hate dire straits. Let’s just get that out there and move on)
Here’s what I have been playing on repeat lately (and, um, I should warn you…I like songs that
say the eff word sooooo….just be careful if you are clicking links)
she is beautiful - andrew w.k. (I listen to this every morning loud as soon as I get out of bed)
seagulls stop it now - this is not actually a song…it’s a bad lip reading video but I have a weird taste in music and listen to this constantly as well. And, yeah, I still love what does the fox say sooooooo….I warned you. I have weird taste in music. :)
little bit stronger - leighton meester (i forgot about this song. I don’t listen to a lot of country but this song…well….it speaks pretty loud to me right now…so…it’s on the daily playlist)
And I looooooooooove recommendations for new music! :) Hint, hint…heehee.
the truth is
i really want to stay awake,
i want to come home and work on new drawings
and paint new cards
and reorganize my closets
or, at the very least, pick up my clothes off the floor.
but the truth is
it is taking all i have to
stay up past 8 pm…
i turned on my heated blankets
on my bed about an hour ago
and. it. is. taking. everything. i. have.
not to go to bed RIGHT NOW.
the truth is
i know this is just what every winter
does to me…
it makes me sleepy and sulky,
constantly cold and
kinda temper-tantrumy-cranky-just-wanna-kick-things-and-eat-candy …
all i want to do is hibernate
until there is sunshine and warmth again….
so i tell myself
”self…if you just get one thing done each night
when you come home,
just one at the very least
THEN you can put your pjs on,
crack a cold can of diet coke
and go climb into that preheated bed
with your phone, your books, your music, your movies
and your robot nightlight
AND you can stay there all night if you wanna…
(just…please don’t eat sunflower seeds in bed again,
you know you are going to spill them
and those shells hurt if you roll over on them….)”
this...well....this is the best sundae i had all summer.
this one wins.
and truth #2...
these cows kind of freaked me out.
at first, i was like
and i pulled over on side of the dirt road
to take some photos of them
and then, they noticed me...
they started walking towards me...
and all of them started doing
it once like
some kind of horde of zombie cows...
and i'm not gonna lie...
the truth is they
kinda freaked me out a bit.
