my week in objects (mostly).

June 25, 2021

1. these pencils.

{because there’s nothing like a fresh start.

2. these bags.

{for (also) covering the phone jack.}

3. these many glasses of iced tea.

{for helping me push through the afternoon slump.}

4. these new lights.

{for getting their first solar charge.}

5. this newish keychain.

{for still bringing such simple delight.}

other things:


heat-loving fleurs for a rooftop inferno?

transfixed by the luminescence of a thin column of water.

patio hacks.

have watched this an embarrassing number of times.

    How are the lights? We’ve had the worst luck with solar patio lights. So many of them last for a few weeks and then kaput.
