james is off on a sea turtle adventure. yup. that’s what the boy does. he chases sea turtles. big, giant, gnarly leatherback sea turtles. ok, i guess he does more than just chase, but they certainly can give him the run around. he’s been supposed to leave all summer, but the big mommas have been making their way northward slowly, and so it wasn’t until tuesday that he could finally go up to nova scotia.
the last time we moved, james had to leave to chase turtles in georgia the day after, so i guess this is an improvement. but here i am, nesting by my lonesome. only it’s not so lonely. for the first time in years i live close by to my family. yesterday my mom drove up to keep me company and help me hang photos (i hung one by myself today, and of course, it’s all wonky).
and sometimes having some quiet time is nice anyway. tonight i ate tomatoes with sugar and crunchy beans, just cause i could. in a few minutes i will devour a pint of ben and jerry’s. and when i fall asleep i will sprawl myself out across the middle of the mattress with the fan pointing directly on me, because really, it’s too hot to do anything else.
this photo is of the two of us in st. croix. i got to tag along on that turtle adventure! we look a little crazed, but we’re next to a dinosaur, can you blame us?
here’s hoping the turtles are friendly for jameson. xo.
