Today I enjoyed a fizzy strawberry soda in this lovely, cheap glass. I closed my eyes and thought about the tiny store on Guemes Island, my little self putting my money on the wooden counter and walking away, the happy possessor of a bottle of Strawberry Crush. I tried to remember the smell of the sea air and the feel of my ugly little cut-off jeans (too tight in the waist ALWAYS!) but it is just too cold here for me to muster up those nostalgic moments gone by.
Oh, I LONG for flowers and I am far too cheap to buy them. I browsed around the newly refurbished floral department at our fancy grocery store. I walked by the bundles of roses (too expensive!) and the variety bouquets. I did stop when I came to the potted primroses. Nope. Maybe if I dust. Maybe then.
I'm feeling such a craving for summer that I made potato salad! It looks a bit grubby but it was delicious!
Another mayonnaise salad (so pretty before the mayo!) created and served. Aren't the colors divine?
I'm desperate for green, so I put the celery tops in a vase by the sink.
Look at the delicate asparagus! Isn't it gorgeous?
The wind blows and the temperatures have taken a dive. Bill and Jeff are off to Africa tomorrow. They shall experience extreme heat and I shall shiver here. I'll keep thinking of all my favorite warm things, like hearts and smiles.
