fire / water


L - Nikon / T - phone

Today was a enjoyable day. Started out with coffee, and a Nutella and Banana Crepe at our local market. The market is new in our area and I am so excited about it. I love walking around and sampling all the jellys, breads, pastas, honey, fresh yogurt and mozzarella, etc. All so tasty and fresh. Today I sampled some lemon buttermilk sorbet and on this hot day is sure was refreshing. I bought some Lavender mint soap and also a big lavender plant (for only $4). Next week I'm thinking I'll buy a blueberry bush to put in a planter on my deck. I love the idea of gathering just enough blueberries for my cereal or scones in the morning. From the market I went down to one of the many Chattahoochee River parks in our area and stood at the waters edge and watched as 5 dogs romped and splashed in the water - they were having the best time. I should have taken Evee with me. After a relaxing morning I decided to wash my windows inside and out (on the lower level). That's a hard job and even when you think you have them perfectly clean, the late afternoon sun shines through and you realize you didn't get them so clean after all. I also dug a holes for some plants, but realized I didn't have any planting soil. (on the list for tomorrow). As the sun was starting it's slow fade I sat outside with a new book and read until the mosquitoes sent me indoors - I was hoping the candle burning would keep them away. Hope you're day was as sweet as mine. / Taylor went to Athens for the weekend. She said she spent a relaxing day by the pool.

T didn't originally have a photo but she chose this one late last night. Is it ok that I then changed mine?

I love the way that you know how to savor. I think you strike just the right balance of savoring and recharging with going and doing and accomplishing. You inspire me.
