In honor of Friday and Tsh Oxenreider’s latest The Good List episode (about the joy of a super short story), today I have five photos from this past week and a super short story to share with each. I do not have the gift of writing fiction, so these stories are – at least as best I recall! – true.
Sunday was perhaps the prettiest day we’ve seen all year, with abundant blue skies and temperatures in the sixties. It felt weirdly wonderful to put on a sleeveless top and a cotton sweater for church.
Wednesday’s opera was Wozzek. I’m honestly not sure I enjoyed it. The performances were amazing and the production was a work of art and genius. but it felt like a bad dream. (also, my mom told me that the last pair of socks I knit her hadn’t worn well at all – seriously, y’all – there’s a big hole in one and a soon-to-be hole in other … I spent time this morning searching for “long-wearing sock yarn” and ordered two skeins to try. I’ll report back.)
Thursday morning Marc and I walked – to the lake – together – for the first time in months. I stopped for a few minutes to take a photo of these #blueskyblooms and then had to run to catch up (he doesn’t stop walking for photos).
Carole recommended these twinkle lights and I ordered them … then waited two weeks for batteries (don’t ask!) … finally ♥
My sister and I enjoyed a delightful night out last night. We started with dinner out at a new Italian place (that’s an arugula salad with pears, chickpeas and gorgonzola; a fig, prosciutto and arugula pizza; and two glasses of chianti). The food was delicious and the conversation was even better. We talked a lot about reading and I’ve been convinced to host Summer Book Bingo again. Karen reminded me that we’ll have maybe the longest possible “summer reading season” this year (Memorial Day Saturday through Labor Day Monday is a few days more than fifteen weeks!) … more details forthcoming. in a much longer story!
Do you have a super short story to share from your week? We’d love to read about it!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends – see you back here next week!
