Swimming pool Q

Posted in Day of Fun, photo, summer by gwen on July 13, 2010

What’s your ideal day?

This is what I like:

A bit of a drive with my favorite songs blasting, a bit of food, time with friends, a nice warm blue pool that matches my months-late pedicure, long summer evenings.

Take it easy

Summer is obviously coming, a bunch of my friends are posting open road-type photos. I am working every day and it’s going to be ages before I get out like that, so I am living vicariously.

Spring color Friday

Posted in meme, photo by gwen on March 12, 2010

The photo of my daughter rocking the lunchtime girls rock camp show and one of her young charges was featured on Poppytalk Spring Colour Week! Purple Thursday.

A quick shout-out: Girls Rock Camp is one of the very, very best organizations around, my daughter [she’s the one playing the guitar] went every summer through her teens and now she is a counselor passing on the knowledge. If you have or know a girl who wants to rock [which I’m guessing is all of them], you can find a list of all the local camps here, and if you are moved to donate, they are always looking for some help, they are volunteer-run and offer full scholarships to a lot of girls who wouldn’t get to go otherwise, including mine.

Today is blue Friday. I’m beat so you’ll just have to make up your own stories about these photos.

June 4: Clouds, detail

Almost Summer #7, Confidentially Yours
