This past week feels like Before The Thing, The Thing, and After The Thing. I worked Monday for the last day and Tuesday started vacation – YAY – and I spent it relaxing and unwinding…I painted a leaf (ha, keeping the bar pretty low for myself)…
….dropped my car off to get the headlight fixed – YAY – and met friends for dinner. Then Wednesday was The Thing and I fell down a dark hole for that day and most of the next day. Thursday was originally Sunflower Field Shoot Day but due to extenuating circumstances that didn’t happen. Instead I went out east with friends…
The Big Duck
The Recommended and Much Deserved Ice Cream
I was really lichen this bench.
Not sure where I’m headed now.
So much ravioli.
Friday I went with a friend to an exhibit in the Rockaways. Yayoi Kusama’s stainless steel gazing balls in a decrepit old warehouse at Fort Tilden.
I loved hearing how there is a person who comes in periodically to reshine the stainless steel balls. That’s a lotta balls to shine!
Yesterday I got two new used tires and a bent rim fixed in the morning and in the late afternoon had an engagement shoot. Today I’d planned to go to the beach, then decided to take it easy and go to a “forest bathing” meetup instead, then so exhausted myself filming a try-on haul video that I blew that off, too.
I’m exhausted. Thank goodness I took it easy on Tuesday because the next 5 days did me in. It’s 7:42 and I’m ready for bed. So that was Vacation Week #1. And I still have another week to go!!! Hopefully this week will bring no unpleasant surprises. Fingers crossed.
