I made a new friend. Don’t judge her. She’s nicer than she looks.
I decided to stop sulking and painted a t-shirt instead (channeling negative energy to creative endeavors and all that sort of thing). Bar the purple splotch where I spilled a little water, it came out better than I dared hoped it to.
We blew bubbles with my little cousins and watched them run around the garden chasing them.
We gorged on Avurudu treats. Pani walalu anyone?
I went on an unexpected trip. (I have weird feet. Don’t look.)
(I told you not to look!)
We lazed around,
Ate too much,
Got reacquainted with the sea,
Made another friend of the four legged variety with a penchant for watermelon. (The little guy has the audacity to put his tiny paw on your hand while he eats, as though he’s afraid that you would retract it before he’s had his fill.)
And looked up and saw pink skies
We also watched the latest episode of Glee. The sibling and I gazed at the computer waiting for it to download. We like to think that the last 4% downloaded so fast simply because the sheer power of our minds. We munched on kokis and I was pleasantly reminded about why I fell in love with The Doors in the first place. Also, wasn’t the cover of Lionel Ritchie’s ‘Hello’ by Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff lovely?
We helped my grandmother forage through a lot of clutter which was taking up way too much room in her house and I discovered my old origami book!
Please note with what aptitude and precision little gutterflower coloured her colouring books. Although, they didn’t realize it back then, the inability to keep the colours between the lines displayed the makings of a genius. Sadly, it is too late now.
My origami swans were as graceful as an origami swan could possibly be.
