My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

One of those days ~

It is just one of those days.
You know, those days. 
When you have zero energy and you know there must be something that must be done but you just don't have to energy to even think about it.

When it takes you 3 hours and too many cups of coffee to just get into the shower.

When you can't think of what to wear because it either doesn't look right ( to your own critical eye- there is always someone who will tell you , you look great .. I love him but I don't think I do.)

When you forgot to turn on the air conditioning while dressing and now nothing feels comfortable and everything looks awful ... awful, I tell you !!

So what do you do ?
You go into another room, where there are no clothes watching you with disapproval, you turn the air conditioning on high and you sit down and lose yourself in the internet . 
Time passes, you are not hot, you are not thinking about what to wear and which shoes are the most comfortable.
You cheer up.

Then you go find something to wear and leave the house ..
Before you reach the corner, you wish you had not worn what you are wearing, wish that it were still winter and wish that someone else would do the shopping.

A stop at the bakery barely cheers you up. 
You know that that scone will find its way to your waistline. 
Scones are like that ... They always do.

Then to the market where we buy many bottles of sparkling water and one bottle of wine and scurry home as fast as our hot little feet can carry us.

Ahhhhh~ closed shutters, air conditioning on full blast, a bottle of cold sparkling water and pretty music coming from another room.

Nice ~
Maybe tonight, we will go for a walk .. when the sun is gone and the mosquitoes are out and I will have something new to whine about.

  1. I know what you mean about one of those days! Sometimes all you feel like doing is staying in and having a quiet world to yourself.

    Hope you have more energy tomorrow
