The sky is blue this Friday and I’ve thrown open all of the windows in the apartment to let in a cool breeze. There’s a certain combination of windows we can open to create a delicate cross-breeze on days like this, on windier days the same combination turns the apartment into a wind tunnel. I still have to wear a sweater, and I can hear someone outside using a shovel to crack the thick ice on the sidewalk, but letting in the fresh air takes precedent over my bodily warmth at this moment.
I’m rolling my wet hair into pincurls, which reminds me that I need to get some more bobby pins. The double prong curl clips that I’m using are perfect for if I am planning on not leaving the house while my curls are setting, but on days like today I need to go out later while my hair is still up. I suppose that I could learn to properly tie a headscarf to cover the bright silver clips. We are going out for pizza tonight, at a little place nearby to Mikey’s school, a cute little family restaurant with delicious pizza and a vintage arcade. Tomorrow my husband and I will be going downtown while Mikey visits with his vovó.
I bought myself some flowers last week, the cashier at Trader Joe’s told me that a lot more people than usual had been buying flowers. We are so desperate for spring and a little colour. Of course I couldn’t resist taking a few photos of the pretty, delicate pink blooms. One of the images I made of the Waxflowers is available as a print in my Etsy Store.
