this summer, in gerunds


rediscovering "treasure boxes"--looking through old school pictures, swimming ribbons, souvenirs. Then trying to sell these things to each other. Sidenote: Chinese renminbi is now acceptable currency in our house.

digging in a superfun, enormous sandbox at the local water park. (You dig for awhile, then rinse off the sand in a little shower area, then swim. Then buy a "junior slushee" for 75 cents. Genius!)

bicycling 5 miles at a very beautiful local park, followed by no small amount of bragging (5 MILES!) and moaning about sore legs I've got to find a cheap bike on Craigslist and take advantage of the many bike trails here.

napping outside on a blanket on a Sunday afternoon. (An anomaly. No one naps in our house except dh.)

buying $2.00 sunglasses at a sidewalk sale in Royal Oak. We were the only ones with kids at the sale and noticeably lacking tattoos and piercings. To say nothing of leather bustiers.

I definitely think you should invest in a leather bustier. "When in Rome..."

I just love these little life snippets. Keep 'em coming.

I just want to second that motion by Tiffany.

Love this post.

What? Why no leather bustier? I really think it might help you fit in more in the midwest if you invested in one.

Good for you for napping!! I love this post. I haven't heard someone use the word gerund in years. Sigh... you are making me really nostalgic for my ESL teaching days..
