…I did a lot of writing. Like, 7000+ words of a new story. And I’m feeling really good about it. Very summer, very dear to my heart. I also did something I should have done a loooong time ago, which is compile a massive list of all my favorite names (regardless if they are ones I would like to use for future children or not). It’s very accessible in my Notes tab on my MacBook and I can’t wait to add to it.
…I started reading Alice Hoffman’s The Ice Queen. So interesting and steamy. Desire, regret, and a whole lot of lightning. I’m finding that I can’t get enough of Ms. Hoffman’s work, and I only wish I was buying paperback copies to add to my real-life library!
…brought me more mosquito bites than I think I’ve ever had in my entire life. It’s to the point where I have to apply bug-spray just to walk Simon (for pee-breaks no less!). For my walks I’ve started layering clothing even though I feel extremely warm with shorts over my pants and a hoodie over my tee. But I’m desperate to stop itching! What species in the food-chain eats mosquitos? I need to make it my new bodyguard.
…is officially done-zo! Seriously! I guess it’s easy when I don’t have a job, so my weekend starts when Ethan gets off. And he came home early yesterday with a beautiful basket of flowers (he called it a buffet: carnations, baby roses, irises, daisies, tulips, and spider mums)! Tonight we are going out for sushi and Man of Steel. Flowers + date night? I’m one lucky gal!
What do you have planned for the weekend? Ethan and I are going to be visiting the gym (his idea, PT test Tuesday), but he does have today and Monday off, so it’s really a four-day for us…followed by another four-day for the 4th!! How is it that June is coming to a close? Wigging out over here.
