Chicago's snapshot summer doesn't know if it's coming or going this year, but either way, I'm taking advantage.
In the past several days, I've gone golfing, crafting, visiting family, and swimming at my apartment pool. The last activity is usually rare in my case, but honestly lately I've wanted to hit the water. And in my newfound enthusiasm, I ordered two bikinis from Victoria's Secret, a bandeau and low-rise
and a triangle set
. The first one I'd been eyeing for awhile now and waited till it went on sale; the second was so cheap that I ended up ordering it the next day (I got it and a t-shirt for the cost of shipping!). You have to understand that before this week I hadn't bought a two-piece in years
, literally, and had been sticking to unmatched or one-piece beachwear. So I thought it was time.
Crafts-wise, I finished making a rug
that I'd been working on for a few weeks, a little at a time. Someone in my building gave the kit away in the laundry room. It's of a unicorn in a fantasy setting, and maybe it seems kind of an 'old lady'-ish hobby, but occasionally I do like to latch hook. My mom used to do it in the 70s while my dad was performing in his bands or whatever, so I suppose I got it from her. ;)
My sister's graduation was of course the Sunday before last, and also of course started off horribly but finished with a dinner that hushed the entire family from its discord. Wildfire is a fine restaurant, and the funny thing is that I don't ever remember hearing about it. I saw Up
during the week too and liked it a lot. It's not the best Pixar movie, but it was good and presented certain themes I can't say I've seen in many animated films before.
Now if there's anything else to say, then I'll say time goes by too darned fast because I feel like an auntie to a couple of my youngest cousins. I hadn't seen them in maybe 4 or so years and wow, did they grow! It seems like yesterday that I was reading children's books to boys that are about to beat me now in height and girth. Sigh.
