Now I’ve been back in the US for a week, but I “landed” yesterday.
That is the way it feels after being away in Europe the entire summer.
But now I am really HERE again. I am HERE, both physically and mentally.
Yesterday, I was weeding my front yard. It looked like hell had broken lose out there. I don’t think I have ever seen my garden in such a bad shape after I’ve been away.
But this summer has been SUPER-painfully-hot here in DC, and it has also been very rainy. The weeds looked like a jungle. And, let me tell you, I worked hard as sin! I had to DIG up some roots of some weeds.
I was sweating like a pig, and I was constantly getting pricked by roses and shrubs. I did swear a lot out there, both in Swedish and in English.
The deer have been feasting on my “hostas” this summer, so those plants look like jokes at the moment.
My beloved hydrangeas look like they are already in “fall-mode”.
So no, not a good summer in the garden this year.
I also went grocery shopping like a crazy woman. Now it is time to cook again, to eat healthy.
Yes, and I got myself a pair of new PW-running shoes. It is time to take up that daily habit again, as well.
I actually look forward to it.
I am looking forward to the fall now. I am done with the summer.
TWO more weeks of summer vacation for Karolina, and then I will be the proud mom of a freshman, a ninth grader!
Me, a high school mom!!
What me? I am only 26! I don’t get it. Again, where did time fly?
I’ve seen two movies since I got back last Tuesday. Karolina and I went to see “Eat, pray, love” with Julia Roberts, and NO, I was NOT impressed. I did NOT like the book, and I did NOT like the movie. SO pretentious, so self indulged. No, save your money for a better movie. However, Julia R was more beautiful than ever. BUT, she was also way too botoxed. Getting so tired of that, stop the botox insanity!
But, gals--- Javier Bardem is a guy you can rest your eyes on...NICE!!!!
The second movie was “The Switch” with Jennifer Aniston. SUCH a sweet movie! If you want a feel-good-movie this is the movie for you. But don’t think about the logistics too much. Just enjoy it for what it is…Go with the flow...
All right, people…I am outie…Today I am going to my hair stylist! New high-lights and new cut.
Have a good one!
