I woke up this morning & the sun was shining so brightly through our bedroom window. Claire, Ashley and I spent the day taking full advantage of the sunshine. We had coffee and almond croissants at Joe Bar for breakfast. There was a sweet but sad little doggy sitting alone outside. He was so darling, I wanted to take him home with me. Then we went to the Fremont Flea Market where I bought a new kitchen table, linens and a comfy men's shirt. Once I set it all up at home with my also new red chairs, it felt as though I had a whole new kitchen. So exciting! Then we packed a picnic lunch and went to Lynn Street Beach where we sang songs, fed the ducks and took a lot of pictures. Claire went home and Ashley and I got straight to work on our dinner for Evan. He is such a wonderful person. It was a lovely, lovely evening. Now Claire is back, sleeping on our floor - our third sleep over this week!
Today was like a warm, beautiful reminder of why (despite all hardships, but also because of them) I love my life. I wish it never had to end.
