My vacation week is quickly coming to an end…but I had a very full, fun, productive and anxiety-free week, which I really needed.
I started the week having to say goodbye to my baby…again, boo hoo. Our visits our so short and so far between. I won’t see her again til Thanksgiving, when we’ll both go to my sister’s house in South Carolina.
I had a beach day with my bestie. It’s been a loooong time since I’ve gone to the beach for realz. Last year was just…no. I almost didn’t go this day due to stupid anxiety, but I powered through and had a great day.
I didn’t do #ootd this week because, really, this dress below and the bathing suit above were what I wore almost every day. Kept it simple and cool.
Photographed some plus size items to list on ebay. I’ll post a link to my shop when they’re up.
I hadn’t planned to go to see fireworks (cuz traffic people walking) but as I was driving around Wednesday afternoon looking for pictures for my @NorthportEveryDay Instagram account I noticed a bunch of cars parked along a road where usually no one parks. Then I noticed people sitting in lawn chairs. Hmm. I quickly googled “fireworks in Northport” and sure enough, there was to be a local fireworks display and the locals knew where to park for the view but to avoid the crowds and traffic. I was in! I always have my beach chair in the car and I had my camera, iced tea and a book cuz I was planning on sitting in the park for sunset…so I just set up camp with the other people and waited for it to get dark. It was nice, no annoying bugs, just charming fireflies, I listened to people chatting, we enjoyed cooling breezes off the Sound, it was a lovely evening.
Of course, afterwards, there was a long line of traffic waiting to get out on the one lane road. I just sat in my car playing Words with Friends til the road was clear 🙂
The next day, back to the beach. Looks kinda like the desert til you get past the dunes.
That’s a hard job.
Friday we went to a lavender farm. You’ll see more pictures in this week’s blog post.
Made all the obligatory “out east” stops and took the corresponding pictures – farm stands, beaches, shacks, flowers, gnomes, etc.
Stopped on the way home for dessert (she had apple crumb pie and I had almond cream pie, yum) and mashed turnips to go, cuz they’re supposed to be the best!
My daughter used to make fun of the things I brought home from thrift stores (like 60s silver clutch purses) in my ebay days…now she wears them out. Mm-hmm.
I got myself flowers.
And that, my friends, was my wonderful vacation week. Now I have to get ready to go to a wake (sadness) and start to prepare for the work week ahead.
Hope you all had a nice week! xoxo
