check

zebra swallowtail larva
zebra swallowtail caterpillar

there are
days
i just want
to do yoga,
then knit
and
drink
bubble tea
all day.

july19: sunflowers

when it's just
hot enough...
and
the breeze
lightly
messes
your hair...
when the
weekend
is fading
and you
wish for one
more day.

wip: robot

but instead
i go to work
and
feed caterpillars
and dream
of unfinished
projects
that could be
finished.
if the
bubble tea
store is open
i will stop
a get my favorite-
avocado
with chocolate.
it sounds
weird
but it is
heaven.

and watch
a movie

ebay items posted
check.
emails sent
check.
caterpillars fed
check.

sunday quiche 7/13

grub says
i make lists
that are too long...
i know
he's right.

but
there's
so much
to do.

wip: ballet top

it is wise
to learn
when to
let go
and
roll
over
those
to do items
to the next week.
check.

hope you
had
a lovely
weekend.

babelfish said...

Ah...you are working on a Jess Hutch's robot? Love the cardi and the vegi-in-a-row shot (the peeled orange is beautiful). Enjoy the sun and caterpillar feeding, even if it's work :P

i must confess sometimes i write lists of only the things i have done just to feel like i've done well.....

amisha said...

i hear you on the lists... so many of my things roll over. some things have been there for months. i am trying hard to be okay with it, but... oof.

emily said...

i've become too good at letting things roll over to the next day or the next week. too good at making the lists, and not good enough - lately - at following them. makes me feel like i'm swimming upstream.

Jenna said...

I feel the same way every weekend and long for an extra day, but I always wonder if I'd use that time wisely. Would I really mop the floor, or would it be another day for the fun things I'd much prefer to do? It's always a struggle.

Lisa said...

Love the last caterpillar pic, that is fabulous!

Oh, and what pattern is the adorable little shrug?

a little bird said...

beautiful, as always.

Sungopolis said...

eep. Indeed, you do have a very full life. So happy we stumbled upon each other. I feel lucky to be a small part of your luscious life. Knitting, yoga, food and pretty insectopods. Add friendship and there's not much more I could ask for. OK, maybe Bear. I could ask for a stupidly brave polydactyl animal friend.

I have,
after reading your words,
eyeing your photos,
heaved a heavy sigh;
for feeling the same
(par feeding caterpillars)
Quinces alone.
But my heart is warmed and my
weekend lovlier for stopping by here...
