before we left, brunch on the beach with friends visiting from abroad.
this seems pretty far away right now, even if the sun has been shining today and i believe we must have passed the 20 celcius spot on the thermometer.
...and with this i should be over and done with the middle eastern beach photos for now. we'll soon move on and catch up with our days in denmark.
today i found a box of my old photos, pre-digital age. i was looking for photos while traveling in indonesia some time that seems like a 100 years ago. probably closer to 15 years, not sure.
we'd been at the zoo museum and i was going to show the boys photos of the me and a komodo dragon. thought i could impress them, you know, komodo dragons are fascinating, especially if you're 4 to 6 years old.
anyway, i went down memory lane. looked at other photos. people i hardly know any longer. myself, so young to look at. time really does fly. better pay attention.

the sunset a few days before we took off for denmark. we're here now. not many sunsets so far. it's been cold, with constant change between sun and rain. it's been a nice change from the middle eastern heat wave that treated us with boiling hot days up to 43 celcius.
so, all's good. spent the last four days just settling in and relaxing with the family. relaxing and eating.started running again yesterday. i completely gave up on that in the weeks of the heat wave back home.
also, the weeks up until we left were a bit hectic. didn't have much time for commenting or replying to comments.
hope you're enjoying your summer too.

it's a hot summer.
we're spending our days indoors or inside - or near - the water. the ocean or the local pool.
today my man is turning 40 and tonight we're going on a date.
i've heard sad news from back home. it made me think about all the big stuff, the stuff that matters. but still, right here and now, i feel lucky.
it's a good summer.

a couple of weeks back we went beach camping with friends. my mom was here and joined us. we used to camp a lot when i was a kid. my parents would pack the citroen dyane and drive to the south of europe in the summers. first with my older brother and me, later my younger brother would join us.
my mom is still going strong with the camping. as long as she has a decent cover to sleep on. and a chair during the day. and so she had.
i still love it, and everytime we've gone camping we're looking at eachother and agreeing we'll go again soon.

: new forever 21 dress bought on crazy sale. i love it.
: still bringing home shells. nothing to do, it's a serious addiction.
: yesterday we had the last end-of-school year party. next year it is first grade for 2/3 of the boys.
: tiny grapes growing in the front yard. this year there are many and we just had the first. they are insanely sweet.
: last weekend i went to tlv. a friend had sent husband and child off to ibiza, so i spent the night with her. stayed up till 4 in the morning drinking wine, talking.
: the heat is on as it has been for weeks. damn! it's hot, but it's the humidity that gets you down. i hardly run these days. i'm promising myself i'll make up for it when i get to denmark.
