I've decided this is my favorite time of year.  There's baseball and football and beach weather.  And apple picking and raking leaves and other fun fall things are not far behind.

This was a weird week.  Like, weird things happened.  I unknowingly walked into my brother-in-law's work on Tuesday.. and was so confused, I asked him what he was doing there.  My boss, Carole, told me today that she felt bad that her P-ness was rubbing off on me.  That was funny.  And then I had essentially the same dream as one of my friends on the same exact night.  Just kind of weird things.  Nothing monumental, but enough that's made me wonder, "hmm.. what's happening here?"

Work is really good, I truly enjoy my job.  I feel so lucky.  Our mentor program started last night.  So I've been busy, but it's exciting.  I facilitated a really successful/powerful diversity exercise.  And I'm learning so much about myself... which is never a bad thing.

I've been reconnecting with old friends lately... Gaelle from pre-school, Lindsey from WSH, Christina from college.  Made a new friend, Page.. we work together and she's fantastic.  I get to see Mara this weekend while she's visiting from Boulder -- yay!  Had a really great date the other night, too... incredible conversation.  Things are good with the roomies, too.  I genuinely like the people in my life right now... I enjoy everyone's company.  Except I miss my FG..

Sox happenings have been thrilling lately.  Rookie no-hitter and a brawl a la Crazy Cabrera tonight. 

I did a medicine wheel.

Random, yet not quite exciting post.  What's cool, though?  I'm happy... I like my life.  All good things.

Took a little LJ hiatus for awhile, but I'm here now. I've been thinking about writing for awhile now.. then I talked to ambienceman on G chat last Friday; he asked me where I'd been. Just enough motivation to write. I realized how easily I could get fired if my boss found this, though... so most of the good stuff will be Friend's Only now. Not that I have many readers, but add me if you want in.

Alot has happened since my last post. I moved, started an incredible new job, and have been having an awesome summer. More on that later.

Last weekend was, I'm pretty sure, the best/most relaxing weekend of the summer thus far. Tracy and I went up to Maine with some of my fam to Sabago. Tracy's word of the weekend: amazing. And not just 'cause the house we stayed at had six bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a sauna, pool table, and hot tub. Amazing because the weather was perfect, the lake was pristine, I spent more of my time swimming than not, and I was completely and totally relaxed. Kayaked, swam, snorkeled, swam, went tubing, swam, laid out on the floating dock, swam, and napped in the hammocks. I'm happiest and in touch with my inner child when I'm in the water.  Taylor and I had this conversation a few weeks ago when we spent the day at the beach (swimming).  Being in the water like that is my happy.  Maybe it's because I'm a water sign or maybe it's because I grew up in a seaside town and spent my summers at the beach as a kid.  Either way, being in the water is my peace, my home.

Anyways, Saturday night I saw more stars than I've ever seen in my life. The night sky was so clear, the lake looked like glass, and the stars were low and everywhere.  Tracy and I sat at the end of the dock, at the end of the earth, admiring and taking comfort in, the blanket of stars that enveloped us.

All in all, it was one of those weekends I never want to forget. 

Now I sit at my desk, mourning my fading tan, but enjoying the beautiful sunflowers Taylor brought me last night.  It's gorgeous out today and we're going to the free summer concert at Copley after work.

This is a major part of why I love Sox Nation so damn much.

I've just gotten my first mosquito bite of the season. Hoo-rah.

Real posting/updates to follow one of these days.

I just witnessed a man write with two hands.  This was far more impressive than it sounds, I swear to Jesus.  He was writing one narrative/journal entry/trashy romance novel/etc, word by word, line by line, on one piece of paper, but using both hands.  And he was using two different colored pens.  One word written with his left hand while the next word was written simultaneously with his right hand.  It's like he couldn't get the words down fast enough with one pen, so he had to use two.  I'm, obviously, completely fascinated by this super human feat.  People amaze me.

I heart springtime.  I heart sunny, windy days.  Wind makes me feel alive.
