Summering

toast

This is really where I want to be...

toast

Drifting along on a boat. It can be anywhere. Even in someone's backyard swimming pool...

toast

Or maybe strolling along with my little parasol, trying not to blind the tourists with my incredibly pale legs...

toast
Or standing on the pier at dusk, watching the lights of the city flicker on...

I'm so restless for a proper summer vacation. I want to be off somewhere. Sigh.

For now, I have to be content with looking at these photos, above, from the Toast catalogue website. (They stopped sending me the catalogue in the mail, I guess because I didn't order anything.)

I can't wait until August, when we finally head out to the beach and then the mountains...

Same here with Toast (I didn't buy anything, so...). I want to be just outside of Rome in summer. Or just outside of Naples.

Most definitely do not want to be in DC...but here I am.

I'll take the parasol & scary white legs any day. But they won't scare the tourists here, Tina. Far too many of them are more than willing to show their scary white legs to us. Yikes. Americans, other people: khakis & on women (or men, I won't judge), a nice cotton skirt is really just as comfortable as icky, unbecoming short-shorts. What I saw at the Cathedral the other day. Aieeeee.

xoxo (to you, not them)

Ah, to be outdoors and at leisure with nothing on your mind but what to have for dinner and which book to read next. . .

It's hot in my country tight now, and looking at those pictures was not easy since I'm inside the house and not floating on fresh blue water... Oh I want to be there too:)

ooh, thanks for letting me know that Toast had a new catalog! I love their photography. By the way, they're not very good at consistently sending catalogues. Every now and again I have to sign up on their site again.

I swam at the Y early this afternoon. It was refreshing but not quite as fine as swimming in a beautiful setting. As I swim laps in the pool, I like to pretend I'm in a beautiful blue body of water with an even bluer sky above me.
