Date Night.

Yesterday was a practically perfect afternoon with a perfectly delightful evening to follow.

The day consisted of...

two naps, respectively.
laundry (clean towels!)
a hike in the woods on our favorite trail.
a matinee movie ("away we go" - two thumbs up!)
dinner at Tommy's.
a stop in at Truffles...
which led to two coffees and an enormous macaroon.
t.v. & a game of crossword.
an edifying conversation to end the night.

i am now...

thinking about cameras, photography,
and looking for a new web host (free!)
and also about to pee my pants.

i've had about 8 cups of coffee today, and feeling it.

Day at the Lake.

Tim took the day off in hopes of seeing an academic advisor at Tri-C today - he got August 6th, which was the next available appointment.

Never to waste a free day together... we spent part of the afternoon on Hinkley Lake in a pedal boat. For $15 we got an hour's leg work out.... pedaling our way across the lake and against the current :) It was a beautiful sunny afternoon as we a) pursued a duck

b) took a much needed picture of the two of us (woo! finally!)

c) tried on the really gross life jackets (just for show)

It seemed like a pretty simple way to spend the afternoon, but special because it was something different and we were out in nature enjoying the beautiful weather! Although, I'm pretty sure our legs will be stiff tomorrow. Pedal boats offer quite the work out!

4th of July.

I guess this post is a little late - considering its now the 8th of July. But it's the only topic I could think of to comment on. So here goes...

This past weekend Allie & Eden came down for a visit and it was lovely, lovely, lovely. It was kind of a last minute thing so Tim and I were scrambling around trying to clean and get the apt ready in time. It forced me to do a lot of those odd jobs I had been putting off, like putting the last coat of paint on the tree "mural" in the spare room.

Most of our weekend was pretty uneventful - we never had any concrete plans for the day so we ended up just relaxing a lot... or shopping. The best purchase of the weekend was definitely the hibachi grill Tim got from Marcs for (drumroll)... $10! And it was a nice one too! He cooked hamburgers and shrimp on it for Independence Day which was exciting (even if the shrimp tasted a bit like lighter fluid). Unfortunately he had to go downstairs and squat out on the driveway to use it (for safety reasons) but it was still neat to have our own little grill.

I wish now I'd snapped a picture of him using it.... in fact, I was thinking today how few pictures we've taken since being married. Since meeting, come to think of it. Most of the pictures that exist of the two of us were taken by someone else without our prompting.

So, I'm determined to be more proactive with the photo cataloguing of
our life - despite my hatred for having my picture taken. I vow that the next post will be a picture post only.

For now, here is a hand drawn picture of the two of us.... by yours truly. It'll have to do for now.
