Should have

(This fish at Atlantis just stared at me for a solid 5 minutes. So I took his photo.
And yes, I need to finish showing you my cruise photos....)



I should have gone to the pool today.
I should have practiced my strokes.
I should have swam a 500 to refresh my memory of lifeguarding.
I should have hair that smells like chlorine, wrinkled fingers and goggle marks.
I should have, but I didn't.

Instead, I chose to enjoy our 70 degree day. I drove my car around with the windows down, my hair blowing in the wind and Jimmy Eat World cranked up. I breathed deeply in the spring scented air and smiled at the daffodils that are popping out of the muddy ground. I took of my socks and coat and let the sun beat down on my winter skin.

And I have to say, that I don't feel that bad about it.

Then I came home and ate my roommates delicious brisket and we watched Project Runway (go Seth Aaron!). Then friends came over and we ate yummy pie and talked until late into the evening. It was a lovely day. Lovely friends. Yummy food. Warm sunshine.

Night, all! Happiest of weekends to you!

xoxo,

Cottage Girl

YOU were one of our topics of discussion last night Kaley. Mostly how much we missed you and wished you were there with us.
