Take me back to the beach!Â Twenty years I lived near the ocean and took it for granted each and every day.Â Now I live in the desert and long for the Pacific.
I love that Beau asked if Disneyland fireworks were just for his birthday. Like any good parent I told him they were.
After a half hour at the pier I remembered why I never had success straightening my hair when I lived in California.Â Forty minutes of quality time with the blow dryer, flat iron, and curling iron…all down the drain.
Also at the pier we watched junior lifeguard training.Â Honestly it looked like organized chaos to me.Â Watching kids jump off the pier, and swim all the way around it, I wished I had been that gutsy when I was a kid.Â Heck, I wish I had the guts to do that as an adult.Â But as we all know there are creatures in the ocean and there is the chance they could touch you and that freaks me out.
Turns out I love long hair in theory but not so much in practice, so this is what I did today…â†‘
I find I enjoy “Gravity Falls” more than your average adult.
The sand and the sea and the salty wind are cure-alls for just about everything.
I’m loving this lazy Friday night, lounging on the couch watching Ghost Adventures.Â Really, it should be called “Overly Dramatic Responses to Things Falling.”Â I can’t say much though because I jump and scream when Shane sneaks a hand super close to my face in the dark.Â And in the daylight.
A real vacation is medicine.Â We should take a dosage once a year at least.
I’m anxiously awaiting the release of The Great Gatsby .Â But I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around DiCaprio as Gatsby… But it does give me a reason to read it again.Â It’s one of the few books I can read over and over again, simply for beautiful language.
Disneyland…not just the happiest place on earth.Â Also best place on earth for people watching.
Here’s to a happy weekend.Â And if you’re near the sticky salty beach air, enjoy it for me.
