the weekend starts now. play.


starting tonight: an early long weekend with as much play and nothingness as i can get into it.  summer is coming, a lake is calling, and yes, those were my toes so cold earlier this week, but today was 90 degrees and the water is cool and it's only 2 bucks for the swimming hole if you don't count the price of gas in a jeep with not great mileage.  this weekend i won't.

this weekend will be daytime driving with dwight yoakum on the cd player, but something smoother for later, and then late silence under the stars.  it will be whatever that book is i bought at the drugstore last weekend.  it will be topo chico y limes and maybe migas for breakfast or lunch, or even supper.  there is raspberry sorbet in the freezer and a plum in the fridge with my name on it.

it will be baseball games on tv, cats, more books and a movie or two.  it will be sleep and sunshine and a new sail for the sailboat if we time ebay just right, white with big blue stripes.

i have my fingers crossed.

  5. Sounds perfect, and I wish I was there too - there is sunlight here this morning, but it is below freezing. I think I am going to find me a big rubber palm tree for the studio.
