Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 349

Today's Daily 5:
  1. Sleeping late after a late night of stargazing
  2. a really good breakfast on the back patio with mom and dad
  3. painting with straws.  I seriously had so much fun, and giggled like a little kid the whole time.  I couldn't stop grinning as I sat there cross-legged, sucking paint into the straws and then flinging or blowing it onto the canvas.  The result is very modern arty, but it's colorful and fun, and I'm going to hang it in my bedroom at grandma's for a while.
  4. weeding in the sun, with an audio book playing.  there's something totally satisfying about seeing the weeds disappear
  5. the feeling of a great shower after accomplishing some dirty and sweaty tasks (see #'s 3 and 4)
  6. slipping gently into a dozing nap on the couch
  7. the smell of clean laundry
  8. knowing it was a full, rich day
  9. painting my fingernails and toenails with OPI Pirates of the Caribbean nail polishes - my toes are painted in Mermaid Tears and my fingers in Steady as She Rose!
  10. going out for ice cream on what is probably going to turn out to be the hottest day of our summer
