end o' summer eve
Guess what? It's kind of sort of the end of summer. Can you believe it? Stop. Breathe. Enjoy the little bit that's left.
Read a great book. This book has kept me up late many a night, because it seems fresh every time I open it. If you're a Jane Austen fan, check this book out. Mr. Darcy positively lives.
I have a (rather embarrassing) weakness for nail polish. (Almost) every time I go to the store, I come home with a new color. 34 bottles and counting.
Try sitting outside and having a thinking moment. Let your heart-thoughts float out. It's an incredible feeling. Be unstoppable.
Or, if you're in a brave mood, stand in an open space, spread your arms out wide...embracing the air, the sky, the universe...and spin. For a couple seconds, you control how fast the earth turns...
This evening, I got in the pool. I'm not sure what temperature the water was but the closest thing I can compare it to is the coldest cup of ice water you've ever drank...you know, the kind of cold that hurts your throat as it goes down. I stood, shivering, on the ladder for an amount of time which I will not disclose. Finally, I muttered darn it all under my breath and plunged in. I literally could not breathe for a couple seconds...
It was a very strange sensation. My bottom half was so cold that I couldn't feel my legs, and my top half was being kissed by the balmy summer breeze...
I wouldn't necessarily recommend jumping in a pool that feels like Antarctica, but it was definitely very invigorating.
Get out there this weekend and have fun. Make memories. Just be. You'll never regret it.
