what a week. but the farmer’s market started this morning and it was full and fun. people i haven’t seen in forever all over, with perfect weather too! now to just hang out all day cause it’s summertime! [basically.]

May 07


after the rain was over, it got hot! i was a little stinky after my jog to the cemetary and back (not in it), so a refreshing shower and maybe some oprah tonight?!?

May 06


an amazing grad party! great food, a ton of friends, lots of laughter, just fun all around! now for some laundry in between pouring rain showers.

so yesterday, after mimosas and brunch (after work of course), it was just a fun aternoon with everyone. and a peaceful night’s sleep at that. now tonight is the grad party in ames-ville, lots of fun!

after a long day at work, i ended up sleeping like all afternoon. i don’t know, i must be really exhausted or something. oh well, at least i’ll be rested for tomorrow.

May 02

mundane monday

a walk in the woods. was that a movie? walnut woods to see the swollen raccoon river; beautiful. now just some ol’ professional procrastination.

sunday fun day.

coffee with friends from high school can totally make your day. i’m glad that relays brings all the favorites back to town. then laundry finally got done, and so just working on getting the garden going is left. maybe a bike ride? who knows - it’s hot outside!

Apr 28


wow, a fun night with friends. hiking, hanging out late, just overall relaxing. and it looks like it’ll be a beautiful day!

Apr 27


actually, i had to cross out yahtzee on my card, i didn’t get it. but it was a great dessert after pasta. just hanging out. happy friday.


sunshine has returned!

time for a walkies on this beautiful afternoon. maybe the observatory tonight at waveland? we’ll see…

Apr 26


i didn’t do it. tomorrow might not happen as it is supposed to. bad, d. very bad.

Apr 25


ugh, i’m sick. i’m achy, sore throated, exhausted. i just want to sleep. but no, i have to go to class and then [somehow] write a six pager for friday. hmm, unlikely. people at work say that it’s a virus. that doesn’t sound promising. that means at least a few more days of feeling like poo poo. :(
