’31 Days’: The Simple Things…

Day 23:  Take a nap outside.

In the craziness of the past month, I haven’t had the time to stop and take a nap…that is, when it’s not as hot as the surface of the sun outside.  I’d much rather take a nap inside, with air conditioning, under a fan.  BUT it looks like Germany has much nap-friendlier weather.  Miss Bee took the plunge…

Day 27:  Light tealights and candles, go barefoot and spend the evening playing to Van Morrison and Ray LaMontagne.

The last couple of days have been ideal for this goal.  It just so happens that I got to play with dear friends visiting from all over the country!

My high school friend from Kentucky was passing through so I jumped at the chance to see her for a second AND got to meet up with one of my favorite locals.  It may have been a three minute drive-by but I love these girls so I will take any chance I get!

Then, I kicked off my shoes, turned on Van Morrison and made a yummy Southwestern dinner to enjoy with one of my very favorite Oregonians (I really need to come up with a magical name for that place).


Her sparkly blue eyes are just as bright as I remember!

And just in case you’re interested in Van Morisson’s best songs, try this one and this one.

And did you know (?!?!) that ‘Wild Nights’ wasn’t actually first performed by John Mellencamp?  Good grief, I feel like such a newb.

But seriously, amazing music, great friends?!  Yeah, my momma told me, there’d be days like this.

We got to top it off by falling to sleep during a thunderstorm and the sounds of rain.





About T.D.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my corner of the blogosphere. I hope you like it here. This blog is where I ramble about the hats I wear (wife, mother, author, educator, etc) and everything in between. A wise man once said 'Happiness is a habit; cultivate it'. Here on this blog, I intend to do just that.
