The tastes and colors of summer (fresh watermelon and ice water with lemon and basil).
Reading nothing at the moment because a few hours ago I finished reading The Light Between Oceans and it was absolutely exquisite. The end had me sobbing at a few points and running to give my husband big hugs. You'll understand why if you read it, which I highly recommend you do. It's a deeply moving story.
Writing this as well as a post for Happy Wives Club.
Listening to one of my favorite recordings of the Goldberg Variations.
Thinking that I will take this lull in my book reading to catch up on the Notre Dame Magazine we got in the mail.
Smelling lemon and basil.
Wishing my parents a fun getaway in Canada! They deserve this little trip.
Hoping for another thunderstorm tonight. Yesterday's storm lulled me right to sleep.
Drinking that yummy flavored ice water pictured above.
Wearing bright red shorts and a neutral v-neck knit shirt.
Loving the feeling of being reinvigorated. I've been having so much fun practicing and learning new pieces lately, and I'm thankful for that. Sometimes I don't feel quite so inspired.
Wanting tolix chairs. I think they have such a fun, retro, industrial look to them. I would love to own several someday. They're quite pricey usually but I just found one in this style for a fantastic price on the Atlanta craigslist page, and I'm negotiating with the owner to pay for it now and pick it up in a few weeks! I plan to use it as my "teaching chair" and I think it will look awesome against the dark wood of my piano.
Needing to figure out how to use Spotify. Any tips for me?
Feeling deeply moved. I think this book will stick with me for a long time.
Clicking on this frightening article I read yesterday. Not everyone will agree with me, but I found so many of the quotes by the women who were interviewed to be quite crass and very sad. It even seemed like the journalist was surprised by some of the things these women said.
