In the old days before Sun damage worries were known, I used to be out in the sun getting a tan on purpose. I still spend alot of time outside, but not relaxing. This year I managed only work up a farmers tan. Still haven't worn the old bathing suit. Had more Thunder storms giving forceful, free showers today, n managed errands magically just in the space between two of them. If only non-work days were as good as the work-week ones lately! I've been so wanting to play hooky...
Before the storms it was sticky out. but now it's less humid. Supposed to be the same tomorrow, but maybe it'll stay nice long enough. I'm hoping to at least toe-dip at high tide after getting to the post office.
This pic seems magical to me with it's reflective, residual boat wake ripples n a thunder head in the distance. I'm not taking many pics lately, as the cam is sometimes malfunctioning, being old n all. (2007).
Time for a new one soon. (Pic from the end of July). I'm no longer taking the cam with me all the time.
The two altered images today are the same angle with different color pallet combos. I can't seem to get away from seeing a green pig's nose with mouth on the top here, n feel like one - been eating so much watermelon, jello, pudding, zucchini (Thanks MB)
, n chocolate ice cream lately. This summer I'm liberally adding on whipped cream n Breyer's cherry topping, plus chipping away slowly at a bag of fresh cherries. (Allergy inflamation seems less
). I finally had a beautiful, large, fresh strawberry from the deck today, n more are on the way (an ever-bearer).
Mischief was pretty sick the past month or so, but is now doing alot better again. Of course now she'll only eat pet-store canned food costing over a dollar per tiny can (a step above Fancy-feast n Sheba).
But at least she's eating again n getting stronger to enjoy some of her time as a senior kitty. (She's 15 years old).
About one month from now I have a scheduled week off work, n I can't wait. Hopefully the summer weather will hang on late for me to get to the beach one warm, sunny day, so I don't feel like I missed out on why I live here. Work has been aggravating to say the least, n I'm just totally burnt out being in a hurry all day, every day. Seems no matter how fast I go or how much I do, it's never enough to get rewarded. There's alot to be said for having time n getting enough rest too- which I seem to never get these days.
Do you have a tan this summer?
