"That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they're not much to look at, or even if they're sort of stupid, you fall in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ. They can drive you crazy. They really can." ~ J.D. Salinger {Catcher in the Rye}

PEA SOUP

that's right it's hot. preparing myself for one hundred degrees of flowering. 'balls in a puddle' is how my florist friend so aptly described today's market morning. however, since everyone will most likely be talking about the sweat index today i just wanted to switch gears and take a moment to express my sadness at the passing of one of our greats. his work is extraordinary and has inspired me a million times over.

may you rest in peace sir lucian.



















{Girl with a White Dog ~ Lucian Freud ~ 1950}




take it slow out there today.

JULY

morning lovelies ~


saddled with the NYT amidst the wafting smell of french toast with fresh berries. the BF is fondling his beloved sand wedge glued to british open coverage. it's a rare work free summer saturday. 
































what to do?


catch up on some reading for sure. here's one i've just added to the queue and right up my alley.

REMAINS OF THE DAY

i'm just now finding my sea legs, lost for most of those spring months. to sum things up {in brief} there was a move, a wedding and a funeral. pretty much in that order. as i catch my breath i hope to regain some of my inner voice and keep pace with the changing tide.

looking forward to getting back to my daily posts...







i'll try to let the rest unfold naturally. // xx
