All I wanted to do yesterday was take a nap in the park.
It was divine outside.
You know, that perfect temperature that is right in between Summer and Fall, where you can sit outside without being hot or cold or bothered by bees.
I had a picnic lunch in the park with my coworker/friend/sister-in-law (that is all the same person). Baguette, brie, jam, grapes, you know the drill.
After that, all I could think about the rest of the afternoon at work was the sun and the grass and the breeze and how I think the best thing I could possibly do was somehow sneak back out to the park with no one noticing and just snooze there.
I didn't.
I worked instead.
After work, I met up with a different friend at the very same park. We chilled and chatted into the evening. We saw some cool people playing frisbee and wanted to join them.
But by then it was cold, and I was in a skirt, and she had to pee. And then they stopped playing.
After like, 10 minutes.
So we didn't.

I never got my nap in the park. Not a wink.
Someday, park, someday.

We have to enjoy these waning days of summer.
I, for one, feel like summer is ending just as I really started living it.
