Thursday Thoughts - barefoot on a summer night never could be sweeter than with you

1. Can't beat the views for the first three days of work this week. Thanks to Lori and Jack for the refuge. The dogs were so happy to have a yard that they did not associate with trees falling down. They all really love the lake. Mae likes to sit in a bed on the porch, Ben likes to sit out on the grass and stare out at the lake, Bruce and Gus like to jackass around all over the yard. 
2. Me? I love the peace. I got a lot of work done every day. Then to just sit quietly facing the lake after work with nothing to do because it's not my house. Maybe to see a rainbow that stays in the sky for more than a half hour. And if one has to get up before 6 am to let one's dogs out, to have a tremendous view.
3. Thanks to Ava DuVernay for these words. This is where I am, particularly the end. Biden is not my person. Kamala Harris was not at the top of my list of presidential candidates but out of the VP choices I think this was a good one. But it doesn't matter what I think. I'm not marrying these people. And every candidate has something in their past to answer for. Do I love everything Kamala Harris has done? No. In retrospect, did I actually expect her to completely dismantle the racist system we all operate in? No. Do I think she knows a better path now? Yes. Will we hold whoever is elected accountable for forward motion instead of sticking our heads back in the sand? YES. Let's fucking go. 

4. Today  I'm back working in Philly, running some necessary errands, sorting laundry, and heading back to the shore tomorrow. Thursday always slips literally right through my fucking fingers. Work is wild on Thursdays and I can't hold on. Moving moving moving today. All week. 

5. I'm in the market for a new phone case like these tough phone cases (a portion of the phone case purchase goes to charity and they have a few super cute masks on that site also), 

6. I did my nails and toes Monday night: took that new favorite OPI Verde Nice to Meet You that I had on my nails last week and put it on my toes this week. Nails are a new to me Olive & June Bold & Unshaken. Olive & June is seven free. 

7. In case anyone is unaware.

8. Things I googled Wednesday night: the new-ish butcher shop near me at the shore and kept getting this website, similar colors but Canada is not within walking distance; Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist (read this if you haven't); what is Michael Jordan doing?; emp shielding, white sharpie for plastic; why did my phone start texting.

9. Reminder 

10. E-cards 

And you? 

The words following the hyphen are the song I am listening to when I start the Thursday Thoughts post. This week is Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
