Slow Saturday

The light filters in through the blind-slatted windows.
I finally opened them.
And stripped the sheets.

From the percussive pitter-patter I hear outside I gather that the clouds finally decided to drop a little weight. And I’m even more glad I made my rounds to the University Farmers Market earlier than later.

Sitting on the couch in my lounge clothes – and by “lounge clothes” I mean clothing acceptable for outdoor wear but are really glorified pajamas – I sip my tea with my laptop exactly where it should be. On my lap.

My eyes resembling the blinds, go back and forth between the various web pages I have pulled up on my computer and Pride and Prejudice that plays on the TV. The five-hour version.

This is what I do when I’m sick…
Sip tea, browse online, and watch shows I’ve seen a dozen times. And I’m not exaggerating. At least a dozen. I could recite this entire mini series by heart.

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written.
I’ll save you the apologies and excuses because by now you’ve read them all.

Many posts are a brewin’ like the tea in my hand. But, well, they’re not quite ready to be “sipped,” as it were.

So for now I’ll leave you with photos from the past couple months as well as some of the pretty things I’ve been searching to brighten this slow Saturday.

Best pal since kindergarten’s baby dedicated. Whoa.
