I'm spending a lot of time right now dreaming about things I'd like to be doing more than the things I am doing now. Spending time in my garden. Leisurely Sundays with the Leckmans in my backyard that start at 4pm with a limey minty beverage and culminate in a movie. Teaching friends to play 42. Long urban hikes around my city. A getaway to Mendocino. To DC to see James. To NYC to see Katie, Kira, Jen, Lauren. A road trip to Yosemite. Paris and Barcelona planning for October. Planting herbs so they'll explode this summer and take over the planter bed. Watching Nathan grow up, and smiling at him the whole time. Finding the Japanese maple of my dreams for the front. Leisurely dinner parties, ending with a walk to the top of Bernal Hill to look at the stars, maybe with an ice cream from Maggie Mudds to keep us invigorated. A new deck. Lots of yoga. Sitting in the light breeze with the newly budded birch leaves rustling around us - a bottle of wine, knitting, and girltalk. Hiking in Pt. Reyes and Muir Woods. Having the craftygeeks over for a bath-bomb making lesson. The Exploratorium with the Carlson-clan. Early mornings at the Ferry Plaza Market, alone with my journal and a glass of champagne and oysters and caviar. Making AJ laugh and laugh and giggle. Watching her learn to crawl. Learning to do some very basic jewelry findings and beading. Sitting in the dusk on my deck with a good book, music piping out the kitchen softly. Making coffee with Aimee. Dancing to exhaustion. Finding the perfect shoes. A long evening in the bath with candles and book and yummy scents.
