What I Need

We’ve had the crud. The kind of crud that lingers and overstays it’s welcome. The one that stands on your  chest and causes deep eye crossing can’t get a breath coughing.
I’m so over it.
So today I practiced a little Biblical taking back. A little Old Testament dominion over dirt, dust, and germs. I opened blinds and threw open windows. And I feel like I sort of took my house back.

It feels good. But I read a quote off of pinterest and thought, “Yep, that is what I need.”

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot 

and the wind blows cold: 

when it is summer in the light, 

and winter in the shade.” 

~ Charles Dickens Great Expectations

Which means that tomorrow I am taking the children (home for a school holiday) to the beach. 
I need to feel the sun heating my skin.
I want to feel the sand between my toes.
Hear the cry of a seagull over the sound of the waves.
Mine some treasures from the sea.
Feed the birds.
And maybe even watch the sun go down.
Can’t think of a better way to start the weekend, can you?

  1. I'm not a beach girl. I've always lived in the desert and love my cacti the way you likely love your seagulls. But oh my… your images make me wish I was a beach girl. So so pretty. Thx for the inspiration!nancyhttp://nancyvnjourney.blogspot.com/

  2. Thanks, Nancy! I grew up near the gulf so it's just sort of in my blood I guess, kind of like you and your cacti 🙂 I must admit though that I'd love to visit the dessert!
