it is hot out. Africa hot. sizzle the feet on the pavement hot. my friend walks her dog Sadie down the street and Sadie makes a beeline for the cool-ish grassy areas. The lake by my house is blooming with algae, and really putting up a stink. I will love this moment in February! I am holding the heat-memories for the deepest & darkest of winter nights. and then I'll likely say to myself, "how could I have possibly complained about the heat??" it's quiet in my inbox, as friends travel about the world. Am glad for the debriefing when they get home - traveling vicariously.
This morning, a follow up ENT appointment as one ear hopefully is mending, but now the other one starts complaining. then - artmaking. I began a special journal book for a very special friend, and hope to finish it today. it's been through 2 incarnations already! hard to make something special enough. okay - go enjoy your day. i prescribe ice cream for breakfast, Italian ice for lunch, and a smooth gelato for dinner. just to keep cool with, understand.
