my week in objects (mostly).

July 10, 2009
five little things that made my week.
1. watermelon lemonade.watermelon lemonade
{because it tastes exactly like bubblegum, only better}.
2. morning sunshine on flowers from the farmer’s (1)
{because who doesn’t like a little sunshiny cheer now and again}?
3. a trip to the nursery with friends.nursery
{because i got to look at all the pretty plants that i would fill my yard with. if i only had a yard. and because i got to pick out my wee succulents}.
4. giving myself a quickie pedicure.redtoes
{because in the summertime, i think everyone needs at least one week of red toes. i hope my toes are not offensive to anyone. if so, quick, jump to #5}.
5. glass straws (also featured in # 1).straw
{because i first read about them over at rachel’s blog and decided to buy them as a little love gift for james. as it turns out i am a straw hog and i have slurped up more water in the past week than i think i have had in the past year}.
{also fresh mint. also red fingernails…eh, i do want i want}.
what little something made your week?

    i am tempted by the glass straws. you know i think i really need to steal this idea of yours of recapping the good stuff from your week to help me focus on the good instead of the bad. did you know – psych research shows that writing about the things that make us happy in turn makes us happier.

    Aww this little list just made me smile. I mentally try and do the same thing every week however, sometimes I forget! It would be good to adopt the same sort of thing – I think I will as well. Not with pictures though (since I don't actually take too many)- just with words.

    Your toes are most definitely not offensive. I recently posted my tootsies on my blog as well! It's a nice feeling to have them done!

    The watermelon lemonade looks divine! I am going to try and make it this weekend! My week was made by the few days of sunshine (such a gift!), a homemade strawberry pie, reading The Time Traveler's Wife, and planning my trip to San Francisco!

    i really like that you ask this question, what little something made your week?, because it prompts me to think of the good things in my life on a regular basis. thank you. my little thing this week is being accepted into the Master Gardeners program. i start in september and i'm really excited about it! …and i had some recent pieces fired and was able to give chris (my husband) a small cup for his coffee. fun fun fun.

    Those straws are amazing! And I need some of that lemonade! 🙂

  • Reply Carissa July 10, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    loving the glass straws and loving your red toenails! not offensive at all! at least your feet look tan 🙂 I posted a pic with bare toenails just the other day… and my tootsies are still sans-polish. maybe I will do that this weekend.

    things that made my week? hmm, getting an etsy order in the mail… new necklaces from oh hello friend! 🙂

    Yum, watermelon lemonade! Blossoms from the electric-blue hydrangea in our garden made my week. I placed some in the kitchen and bedroom 🙂

    watermelon lemonade?! I've never heard of it but it sure looks yum (:

  • Reply cindy : quaint July 10, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    we must get those straws (we use too many plastic ones) and the lemonade. some red polish would be nice, too.

  • Reply Stacey July 10, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    ha ha, what you said about your toes…your nails looked quite pretty.

    Fresh guacamole made my week, just made some and practically didn't need any chips to just enjoy it.

    what a perfectly summery week. i love your nails 🙂

  • Reply courtney July 11, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    oh GOODNESS i love your nails – and completely agree. 'rich girl red' is my favourite toenail colour – i'd even mentioned it when i was on marta's beauty panel (

    and way to read my mind! i've been craving lemonade ALL WEEK and finally bought some yesterday just to be bitterly disappointed. i'm going to have to go ahead and make some watermelon lemonade to satisfy the craving!
