(Art Journal page - spring 2008 - Sonia & Kim Go to Camp)
So the sun shone here yesterday.
And it just may be here for the whole weekend.
We have still been stuck under the rain clouds for most of the month so when these days of summer happen, people flock outside and soak it up.
My friend Sonia and I thought about going to the beach. We thought about going somewhere by a lake or something.
But in the end, we chose the perfect setting to spend our Summer Afternoon together...
My Back Deck !
(back deck pre-summer of rain - May 2009)
(It was a lot sunnier yesterday ! ;) )
We had Blackberry Mojitos with sweet mint from my waterlogged garden. Ole !!!
We had a delicious lunch of greek salad, warm pita bread, stuffed vine leaves, salty greek olives and luscious tzatziki sauce.
We sat in the sun for a bit - it felt soooo good.
We chatted about life and how sweet it is, family and how complex it is and taking better care of ourselves, as challenging as it is...
Then we did a little beading project , which of course required a quick and chatty trip to the local craft store to find the perfect beads !
Shaded from the mid-summer sun by the umbrella, cool glasses of lemonade (after the mojitos) to refresh us, and with a gentle breeze that blew in just when you needed it, my friend and I had the perfect afternoon!
Ah, summer !
Ah, life !
Hope you get to take advantage of both today !
Hugs, beautiful Ones !
