this weekend I...

roadlope.jpg - finally unpacked and hung artwork on the walls in my studio

- stuffed myself silly with chips, salsa and guacamole dip

- felt really underdressed sitting outside enjoying a margarita in the district

- woke up to a cat fight at 4 a.m. (my cat had somehow gotten out)

- hung laundry to dry outside on the clothesline

- remembered the feeling of running my hands over drying bedsheets on the line when I was little

- hit two out of the park at a home run derby

- laid down in the clover grass and counted the clouds

- dove head first into a freezing lake

- screamed really loudly

- got tangly hair

- bought large bug-eyed sunglasses for $3 at Dollar General

- planted pink-cheeked dahlias and sunset-colored marigolds

- kissed my husband

- walked my dog in the cool morning

- took the long, back-roads route home

- watched a movie, which in my opinion, was about a half hour too long (Calendar Girls)

- sketched giraffes and nuns

- took a nap in a dug out

- loved the feeling of bare feet on warm pavement
