The sun came out. The dogs napped on cushy beds on the deck. Movies played late into the night. Toes felt cool on fresh-cut grass. Mexico City was relived through images. A little girl turned 3. Homemade chicken tacos satisfied a craving. An elliptical became a reading haven. Hands (and clothes and maybe a blanket) became spotted with pink and green paint.
More dream campers were painted: And part of a vintage Thermos collection was sketched (and then colored in with pencils, cut out, glued to piece wood painted blue and Mod Podge’d):
And now it’s time for Five Senses Monday, where I reflect on the last few days through the senses.
The ethereal effects of a truly relaxing weekend spent entirely at home.
Fresh basil and balsamic vinegar. A welcomed aroma I never realized I associate with summer.
A turkey sandwich with a now-retired coworker who always has stories of places he’s been.
Retro campers in my sleep. The barbecues, strands of lights, pink flamingos, hamburgers, sand dunes and Bermuda shorts that go with them.
Movies playing the background. I realized I don’t watch movies as much as I listen to them.
I hope you had a great weekend. Here’s to a great week. xo, L
