It is slightly insulting to spend a day indoors or even “pre-plan” a task when the sky is 15 shades of golden and you’re sitting indoors pre-planning a task. I don’t know about you but I’m not one to insult the skies. I’m not sure if you know this about me already but I’m brown. Some silly people I live with say I’m “beige” (er) but I’d like to think of me as more of a chocolate mocha.
This was before I moved here and started to look like a “chai tea latte”. That’s what people call masala tea here. I only wish I was so creative but that part of my life where I gave things silly names is dormant if not completely dead. This is why I named yesterday: Glorious Sunshine Thursday aka Best Day of My Life.
I did some solo seizing of the moment in a few minutes yesterday morning. I jumped right out of bed, looked outside the window, thought of a place I’ve never been and made it happen. Of course, I had to to put the thought that I was being too impulsive out of my mind because nobody likes a spoilsport, right? So what if there was a sink full of lets-pretend-I-didn’t-bake-an-impulsive-cake and pancakes-who-made-those? I made a grown up life decision and did the grown up thing by sticking with it.
Thursday was for my one and only camera (I love her).
Thursday was for a front row seat on a boat to Alki beach.
Thursday was for walking on some sand and mostly pebble shore.
And eating an ice-cream (double scoop, medium waffle cone…because I like when it drips).
And seeing the Statue of Liberty! That last part is slightly true.
But mostly, it was for getting back some chocolate mocha and my ocean spirit, which is something only salty air and blue skies can do.
