riparian delight, as leo sayer sings, and june meal

It’s been a busy week full of early (for me) arrivals at work, so I am especially looking forward to tomorrow afternoon’s appearance heralding the start of the three-day weekend. However, I shouldn’t wish my summer away, so first let’s look back at three beautiful things from the past week:

1. John, Julia, and I explore The Yards as a potential Friday evening hangout for the rest of the summer. With its wading pool (where we spend the night with our feet in the water), riverside location, and expansive green, I think we may have found an ideal spot to listen to some music.

2. A jogger passes me, iPod in hand. Her movements are a little jerky and when she gets caught at the light, it becomes apparent she’s dancing along to the music. She looks exactly as goofy as you feel when you’re the only one moving to music, but so joyful that I resolve to squelch the evil internal fairy who tells me to stop dancing on Metro platforms.

3. Sunday’s farmers’ market offers up the first raspberries, plums, and corn of the season. That night we feast on corn on the cob drenched in butter and salt, a perfect summery complement to the guacamole Rudi makes.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

You know what – I had never heard the word ‘riparian’ before Hyacinth Bucket! I love your beautiful things, especially that jogger dancing. Wonderful.

@Nan: Thank you! Honestly, I totally stole it from Hyacinth when I was coming up with my headline.
