wednesday feels like monday

aeonium.bloom.2

oh i am moving s l o w l y today. it was so hard to get the girls out the door this morning. and even harder to get myself to work. we had a lovely long long weekend (we all took monday off as well). it was hot. too hot. and our a/c - which i finally agreed to have turned on - conked out. so we swam. and we played. and we lounged. and we opened amazing mail - and listened to amazing music. (thanks so much molly!!) and we visited friends and family who live in cooler climes. (it always amazes me that you can head 20 minutes down the 405 freeway and the temperature can drop 30 degrees!)

so much to do. finish up loose ends. and pack. before we head off on holiday next week. one week from today we begin our trek up the coast. with stops at mt. shasta and in portland (very excited!) all the way up to vancouver. where we will do a little visiting then catch a ferry to paradise. (at least my idea of paradise...) a week in a cottage by the sea with my mom, brother and his girlfriend. i can't wait. so if you don't hear from me too much. you know i am busy preparing. getting the tent ready! and making some plans to meet up with some wonderful people i have met through this blog! oh i really can't wait!!
