|04:31 pm - Wednesday wish-places (and wish-day)|
My day has been sort of exhausting, and there's more to come! Whee! (Not whee.)
While mostly I would like to lie on the floor and rewatch this week's Sleepy Hollow because Abbie and Ichabod are my happy place, I have work yet to do. So, my substitute indulgences are these wish-places -- wish-paths -- and a wish-day.
We've looked at topiary and doors, and I am also extremely fond of stone streets and paths, especially those that curve, especially those near water. (I like somewhat less the act of walking stone streets whilst wearing heels, but hush. Wishing! WISHING! ;)) Wouldn't it be nice to be following this path to Mount St Michael? Or, if it's evening, walking down a golden-lit street like this one in York?
But if I am not walking these paths in my mind, I might think about enjoying this London day as lived by Shini Park.
Where do you wish to be today? May there be time to rest and explore, even if it's mostly mental. :)
Today, I'm actually okay where I am. We're doing fun stuff at work that reminds me of university days and making me smile.
Oh HURRAH for a day that's great just where you are. :)
Hope your Thursday is good too!

I've walked that path to St Michael's Mount barefoot. We were running out of time to be there and the tide wasn't quite out. By the time we got to the other side the causeway was completely clear and we had no shoes to walk on the gravel path, but the sensation of the rounded stones on bare feet was wonderful.
I've been wishing to be somewhere else today and tomorrow I will be :)
Oh wow, what a wonderful experience that must have been. Thanks, K, for sharing, and a happy elsewhere to be tomorrow! :)
Those are fantastic paths!
I do like a good path. :)
Hugs, and a good evening!

I'm having one of those Anywhere But Here days because there was a Santa Ana blowing most of the day *achoo*. So I'd like to be someplace cloudy and grey and damp and cool, with maybe just enough drizzle to make the plants happy.
Better days for you *hugs*

Hugs, A, and a better Thursday with no Santa Ana winds.
Fabulous paths. Have you read Miranda's Mount by Phillipa Ashley (aka Girl vs Earl)?
I haven't! I'll look for it. :)
Thanks, Stevie, and happy day to you.

Those do look really good.
Cheers and great paths ahead, L! :)
Those are beautiful, especially the one to Mount St Michael. I hope today was a bit less exhausting.
I love paths. :) Glad you liked them too, S!
Yesterday was not any better, but we persevere. Hugs hugs! It's Friday!
