Scary, brave, ridiculous, sublime(not necessarily in that order)

Things that have surprised me today:

  • the powerful tug to my heart when I saw this photo of Robyn wearing a bunny hat we bought her on our trip

  • Pride parades in Vietnam (their first) and in Uganda (where homosexuality is punishable by death, and people walked anyway)
  • a huge mutant cricket/tadpole who was living under my potted plant
  • the fact that when I wear floppy pants and a floppy top I look only 3 and a half feet tall (but sort of cuddly)
  • that I've forgotten for the 4th day to nag Sarah about downloading photos and videos I wanted to post
  • the chicken sandwich I made right after the cheese sandwich I made when I finished my yoghurt
  • the wonderful thrill I felt when I looked out at the park site outside our house and saw that they were working on the landscaping
  • the puzzlement I felt when I looked out at the park site and saw that they were doing the landscaping before the concreting
  • that Dave has been reading since 7 this morning; actually that shouldn't surprise me; on vacation he read Room, Divergent, Insurgent, and the first two books in the Chaos Walking series
  • my almost inability to finish a not-mini Magnum Double Caramel ice cream bar 
  • the way I miss my friends who were my blogging friends before I started being such an unreliable blogger/reader


  1. I love this post. I'm with you on the blogging thing and so are all my other blogging friends. We've all sort of fizzled in that respect.

  2. I noticed that your park was still unfinished.
