So, I was running errands the other day and spotted what would surely is a "Sarahmobile" if there ever has been! Right?!!
This would be the perfect ride. I can picture it now: Jon and I driving to the beach listening to Manchester Orchestra (which has been my soundtrack this summer)... Ahhhhh. Allright, I'm at the Y psyching myself up for Ultimate Cardio. Gotta go!

Art and Copy

Has anyone seen Art & Copy yet? I'm curious. Check out Flavorwire's page about it.

Marrow Tomatos and Borrowed Trouble

It's salsa time-mmmhmm. The past couple of weeks have been so sunny and lovely, my tomato plants are heavily spotted with clusters of juicy, ripened fruit. I've enjoyed their fresh sweetness in my favorite salsa combo: black beans, corn, onion, peppers, and lots of tomato seasoned with salt, chili powder, cumin, black pepper, or just a little taco seasoning. The bowl full of fiery orange-red tomatos just had to be photographed before being salsa-ized, though. Isn't it perfect? Life is like a bowl of tomatos. Or something like that...
I don't have any great segue for this, but here's what else has been up lately. It's been a hectic past several months, and I'm feeling a little frustrated. Fortunately, nothing major/ disastrous has happened. It's more just a general "oh crap- I'm burnt out" feeling. That coupled with the imminent end of summer has me stressing out. I'm aware that I worry far too much (I can imagine multiple reasons why anybody wouldn't like me), and that I still have several more gorgeous summertime weeks to enjoy (captain shearer, part two)- no need to "borrow trouble". BTW- why would anyone borrow trouble? Do they plan to return it? Moving forward, I will now suck the marrow from the days ahead.
"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, to suck the marrow from the bones of life; to put to rout all that was not life, and not to come to the end of life, and discover that I had not lived." - Henry David Thoreau

Post Birthday Bliss

Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a great birthday! It started off with a road trip to Holiday World on Friday, came to a frustrating/ exhausting point at the Tomato Art Festival on Saturday, and now I'm floating peacefully into my 32nd year at Kentucky Lake with Jon and friends. Ahhhh. Thank you:)

Tomato Art Fest

It's almost time! Am I ready? Not quite, but almost...
I'll have a booth located in the parking lot across from Bongo East- where Alley Cat used to be- and I 'll be there 10:00 am till sundown (8:30 ish). You will not believe how dang big this thing has gotten!
