Tuesday has become my favourite day of the week this winter. Given my internship and current non-employment, I have a long weekend (Friday night through all of Tuesday). Friday and Saturday are usually spent vegging and sleeping, and often not reading because that is what I do all of Wed, Thurs, and Fri. Sunday and Monday are spent doing any number of odd things, often still indulging in the weekend-ness of it. By Tuesday though, I am usually ready to read and write and think and fully immerse myself in those things (not that this does not happen on other days, but lately Tuesday has seemed more conducive to it).
After a week-long (short) stint with me in Minneapolis, Ian returned to Florida yesterday. Although a little lonely, this Tuesday has been especially kind to me, with little niceties such as:
:: Almost 50° weather today! It is sunny and a little wet, but the air is so light and refreshing, and so welcome after such a long spell of cold weather–it makes everything seem more attainable.
:: Good coffee. I just finished a perfect mocha at a local coffee shop here. The sunlight sneaks its way in and the music seems to bounce around the room and I find myself wishing I had remembered my sketchbook so I could transcribe the patterns left on my glass from the foam. Somewhere between crocheted lace and spiderwebs.

:: A stack of manuscripts, photocopied poems, and library books to peruse
:: A whole day to soak it all in
I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday too!
