coffee + cre8tive [apr 24 06]

This photo, taken on Santa Monica beach by photographer S. Wedelich, is mesmerizing. The lighting, shadows, location - melancholy, dreamlike... I like the movement in this photo, the birds, the coats, somehow telling a story that is up to the eye of the beholder to create.

We had a lot of rain this past weekend. Staying indoors as the rain rhythmically tapped on the windows helped ground me. I sorted out my kitchen, reorganizing pots and pans. Deep cleaned my kitchen and living room. Painted the kitchen and living room walls to refreshen things a bit. Lingered at the book store. Enjoyed a few DVDs with my husband sipping Guayak? Yerba Mate tea and cuddling. Chatted it up with my friend in Miami for nearly two hours. Prioritized goals. Enjoyed the luxury of an afternoon cat nap. All things that I wouldn't have necessarily done had the weather been gorgeous.

What about you? What activities did you enjoy?

p.s. lots of posting errors with blogger today, so check back throughout the day as I'm not sure how long it will take before blogger repairs some of their issues.
