over the rainbow

July 29, 2009


One of my favorite things about being single, has to be, spending quality time with me. I’ve been constantly moving for the past month and a half, so this last weekend I was able to just chill and get things done around my place. I finally re-arranged the cabinet under the sink, and sorted out the discarded mail on my coffee table, among other tasks. I also got a sweet visit from Erin, while she was on her way back up north.

I’m loving Salem in the summer. Walking downtown, visiting the cute shops, stopping at the Gelato place to grab a treat, or spending time at the park, are just a few of the fun things I enjoy doing here.


Saturday night I went to the Waterfront park to watch The Wizard of Oz. We needed to wait for dusk to hit, to start the movie, so I brought a book to read (MoMo ;)). I got use the book cover Erin made me for my 25th. Love it!


I made a delicious dinner to take with me. Yummy pasta, a colorful salad, toasty bread, and a peach for desert. SO good. The crowd was pretty chill and we were just excited to get the show on the road. They played a couple of old school cartoons… and I mean OLD. Betty Boo was one of them, and I’m pretty sure I was more creeped out by it than entertained. Not my favorite.


Enjoying the evening.


The Wicked Witch of the West still scares me to this day… those flying monkeys of hers are terrifying. True story.



I also got to ride my new bike (thanks to Katie!) and got some ingredients to make dinner for my new neighbors. A couple of friends moved to my neighborhood, so I invited them over after a hard weekend of moving. They were pretty surprised when I had homemade tortillas! haha. That’s how I roll.

During the bike ride, I listened to Johnny Flynn. Perfect music to celebrate the sunshine and light summer breeze in the morning. ❀

All in all, it was a great time to be productive and enjoy a quiet weekend. Sweet!


P.S. This is for you MoMo πŸ™‚
