a blissful day


photos by T

Since this has been such a hectic week and have had no time for photos or blogging I asked T to share 2 photos from her week. I didn't know what she would come up with. I was hoping for a shot of her dirty self after her hard day laying sod in the rain. She's been helping her dad with landscaping this week – doing very hard and dirty work. The kind of work that makes you feel good and tired at the end of the day. Or a photo of the pieces she hung in a gallery. She prepared and hung 3 large photo pieces in a local art gallery for a showing called "pin-up" Show and Sale. It was an interesting concept - all pieces had to be no larger than 18 x 24 and unframed and unmated and able to "pin" to the wall with no more than 4 push pins (she said she used 6 - hope she's not disqualified) and must be priced under $100.
And she's probably not counting but I can count at least 6 different friends she has made time for just this week. She's staying busy that's for sure. And that a good thing. / these photos are from last week when i spent a day in athens with my friend. the weather was perfect. the day was an unstructured day. we bought subway lunches, laid a blanket in the grass, amongst the clover, made clover necklaces, read our books, talked and listened to music.
