I think I'm going through my annual bout of Spring-weather-induced productivity fever! I feel like I must be repeating myself at this point, but between school being over and Mike being away, I have all this time to myself and I thought it would drag on, but it's more like there aren't enough hours in the day! I keep accidentally staying up way too late reading (Just got done with a Flannery O'Connor novel Rhiannon sent me a few months back, and am finally getting started on Leonard Cohen's first novel....something I should've read ages ago!) and then getting up really early to walk Lola and go to work and then when I come home I just want to cook new vegan recipes and make crafts and listen to Bessie Smith until it's time to read again!
To be honest, I'm sort of relieved not to have the internet right now, because I feel like I'm just getting so much more done! I've even written real letters to some friends and family in far away places, and sent it to them by snail mail! And I took up my knitting again, and I've even got TWO houseplants now! If I can get these guys through the Summer, I'll look into starting a little urban garden in my new apartment! Honestly I get like this every Spring time, I get all fed up of the internet and I feel like it prevents me from living my life to the fullest, and that seems to be the general consensus in the blogging world right now from what I've read, but it's probably just Spring fever, and I think by next Winter when it gets chilly again I'll be happy to lie under the blankets reading blogs and spending a few hours just replying to comments and e-mails.
In the mean time though, you'll have to forgive me for being a bad commenter! And know that I still appreciate all of your comments so, so much! It's just hard when I only check the internet sporadically from internet cafes.
Anyhow, these are just some more pictures from my weekend in Sutton with Mike. Tomorrow is the one week mark from when he left, which means only four more to go! Bare with me while I get really sad and pathetic as the time goes on! Truth be told, he's been touring since we started dating three years ago, but I still haven't gotten any better at being independent while he's gone. Anyway, this was at the prettiest cemetery I've seen since the one we visited in Savannah, GA last Summer. It is tiny and right in the middle of a big field, down a dirt road surrounded by mountains and greenery and all the tomb stones are old and cracked and creepy and nobody was around and the patches of dead grass made it even better. We spent a really long time there reading the names and the dates on the stones, and then we drove for a really long time down random back roads through the mountains and it was just a beautiful warm perfect day! I'm glad we took pictures, cause I sort of wanna remember it for a really long time!
Thanks again for all your sweet comments all the time. They mean so much to me! And sorry for two outfit posts in a row. I don't have much time to browse the web for inspiring things to post about, so in the mean time, it'll just be random pictures of me and the things I've been doing!
