“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...”

it's morning already

It's three in the morning, no... half past three in the morning, and I cannot sleep. I was just looking at pictures of breakfasts...you know those cool pictures on flickr that people will post on their blogs for not any real reason at all. But I love looking at those kinds of pictures. They inspire me. Well, they inspire me to eat breakfast (and somehow they really inspire me to be more organized...), even though I'm not really a breakfast eating type of person, most of the time. I tend to just have my coffee and maybe a bowl of cereal or a toasted English muffin, but generally if I have a cup of coffee in the morning, that's all I need. Although every now and then I get this urge to make breakfast. And I was sorely tempted to start making a batch of waffles or possibly some coffee cake or really anything, but by the time I had that finished it would be too late, or rather too early. And well, baking at 3:30 in the morning just doesn't work very well for me. Besides, after typing this I'm starting to get sleepy again. I don't normally stay up this late, so I'm not sure why I'm hanging 'round.

Lately I've been enjoying the warm summer month of August. I don't get outside too often, which is a shame, because I really do enjoy the outdoors. Last week I did a bit of lake swimming, which partly consisted of me jumping into a lake at night with my friend while avoiding a certain annoyance one always finds at parties. And after we jumped in, I was hooked. I mean that I love lake swimming now so much better than swimming in a pool. Come to think of it, it's been years and years since I've gone swimming in an actual pool. The last time I was swimming was during a canoe trip several years ago. Still, I tend to hate swimming due to the fact that one has to wear a bathing suit in order to be immersed in water. I haven't worn a suit in years and I honestly don't know if the one I have even fits. I'm sure it does, but I don't really want to see what I look like in it. I'm probably way too vain, but I hate what I look like in those things. So I've decided if I want to continue this trend of lake swimming, I had better make myself a new suit. The real reason for all this is that I want to use the 1930s bathing suit pattern I purchased on eBay a few years ago. Yeah, I'm sly like that. But honestly, I really have no idea when I'll find the time. I'm hoping I can squeeze in enough time before summer is totally over and the warm weather turns crisp. I suppose my tank top and shorts will have to suffice until I buy myself some time. And now I better get my little self to bed. And thus ends a terribly pointless entry.

Good. morning.

  1. My usual breakfast is coffee and an english muffin. :) I used to not eat breakfast but it's bad for the metabolism.

    I don't like swimsuits either. But a few summers ago, I got a swim skirt and a tankini top. I love it. It's modern but has a vintage feel. Also, it hides my butt. :)

    Ever since getting pink eye from a public pool last summer, I am down on them. Lakes and oceans all the way. Gosh, I miss living on the coast.

  2. I love lake swimming too! Open water swimming is my favorite part of triathlons! I miss the ocean I grew up next to, as well!

  3. Ahem ... I seem to remember seeing you in a bathing costume in, oh, now, when was it? August 2005? And where was it ...?

    Athens, Mizourah?
