this weekend kept me pretty close to home cleaning the apartment and doing loads and loads of laundry that have been piling up for who knows how long! so instead of heading out of town to go swimming in lakes or camping in the woods, i kept my adventures close to home. on sunday, brendan and i drove out to “house sit” for his parents with a car full of laundry and not much else to do. so we laid out in the back yard on a quilt in the grass between cycles, and i played dress up in my new lauren moffatt dress. nothing like laundry day as an excuse to put on something fancy in order to clean every last machine washable item in your wardrobe.
laying out on a blanket in their very well-manicured yard with the setting sun filtering in through the trees felt like such a treat. it made me start to feel a little itch to someday have my own yard, or for that matter, even my own house! apartment living is pretty swell, but sometimes i dream about how nice it would be to have a little place with a yard and a dog and a washing machine and all of those silly conveniences.
