Life is good

These days I've been:

:: tasting the tomatoes which are ripening at great speed these days, and of course, rejoicing at the abundance of vegetables our garden provides for us at the moment.

:: riding my mountain bike a lot, whether it is a longer ride to the top of the nearest hill or just a quick ride around the house.

:: playing the guitar whenever I can. My fingers are toughening and the tunes I play are beginning to sound nice. Though, I still have so much to learn...

:: listening to Jack Johnson's songs, being inspired by his singing and playing.

:: looking at the blue sky and fluffy cumulus clouds on (lately) rare sunny days of this summer. It is a joy to put on my summer dresses whenever it is warm enough.

:: learning about the dragonflies by visiting a creek nearby and flipping through the pages of a book on dragonflies.

:: helping a colleague to ring hundreds of barn swallows. It is amazing to see huge flocks of swallows gathering in the evening above their roosting place.

:: reading Soule Mama’s blog over and over again, finding comfort in her words when I am lonely and despaired.

And of course I still spend 8 hours at work from Monday to Friday.

Mah, občasno je malo dolgočasen. Ali se pa samo meni zdi, da se nič pametnega ne zgodi.

Ja, pa čakam, kdaj ga boš ti začela pisat; tebi se ves čas kaj dogaja!
