It's been quite a while since I graced you all with my stream of consciousness! I find that I write these posts much better when fueled by coffee or inspired by wine, though neither of the two are helping me out tonight.
I've been out of school for just one week now but it seems like a lot longer than that. I've already had time to get things done around the house like cleaning the carpets (too bad I don't have before and after photos for you and pictures of the dirty nasty ass water that I dumped out of the cleaner, right?) sprucing up the patio a bit.
We also entertained on the 4th of July. Three of my ladies came over for dinner and we had chicken and pineapple skewers, watermelon, arugula, and feta salad, and Oreo pie for dessert. The cocktail of the day was a tasty raspberry beer lemonade. Mmmmm, good! Of course, I have no photos of the food or the beverage. It was all very pretty, as were my ladies. We watched fireworks here in our neighborhood (the city fireworks are close by and we have a great view of them), and by the time they all left I know they were full and happy and relieved to not have a screaming eight year old boy around them anymore. Diego isn't anything if he isn't loud. I enjoyed listening to Giancarlo entertain my ladies with his stories, two of them which involved being propositioned by sex workers on two separate occasions. But that's a whole 'nother post! I wonder if he will let me tell you those stories. And how come I never get propositioned by sex workers?
Another upcoming post is one in which we went to The Huntington Library and Gardens and I practiced using our big girl camera in preparation for our vacation in a couple of weeks. I got some beautiful shots, but of course, at the Huntington, it is hard to go wrong with photography.
