rainy monday

Is not just a song title, is also the foundation for an ideal day. Growing up in the desert, you really learn to appreciate the merit of a summer stormy day.

Monday, though three days ago, was just that and I took full advantage.

7am. breakfast

2pm.-5pm read in bed with tea–turned into impromptu nap followed by more reading.

5:30pm. nails with mom

730pm. dinner at outback with mo and tess

10:30. more reading and then falling asleep really early.

If rainy monday described the previous day, bustling tuesday would be the appropriate label for the following one. I fueled myself and then proceeded to begin packing up a storm:

Tired out from all that folding I met dad for some sushi!

A nap with the boy was definitely called for, followed by dinner with friends, and then a movie with Kemp. I would say these past few days have been rather ideal–aside from yesterday I suppose which was filled with plane travel. Now I have arrived!

ain’t it cute?

preparations

..are quickly approaching status ‘COMPLETE’ I am happy to announce. As usual, this Sunday has been magnificent, relaxing, and highly photographed.

It all began with a lazy morning filled with caffination, reading and kitty loving.


Little marble is feisty! It was beyond gorgeous outside, perfect for making some SUN TEA.

–Have you ever heard of sun tea? It is where you put water and tea bags outside and let the sun heat and steep it. I only found out today about it, but I was tickled!–

Did I mention that wildflowers are taking over our yard? Not that I’m complaining..

After much dawdling it was off to my mom’s house for some serious trip prep. I popped in some laundry and headed out to enjoy the sun before my three weeks without it.

After a quick elliptical session and stretch, laundry was done, folded, and set out to be packed:

So the amount of food I am bringing could sufficiently feed a small country in Africa BUT I have my reasons so before I show you…hear me out. I used alot of my lobocash to buy things that would not go bad, limiting my choices to chips, candy, and energy bars basically. The first two options were out as soon as they were suggested, leaving me with the third. I am now in possession of an army of energy bars. Now I figure I can put my purchases to good use and save some money on my trip by snacking on those babies. And now revealing the loot:

I am super excited, got my boarding pass all printed out. My clothes on the path to being packed, and a delicious salmon dinner to enjoy.

Au revoir ;)
