I have been busy with the birth of Summer
Smelling flowers, rowing boats, and designing wedding invitations have all been part of what has been keeping me busy lately. Appropriately enough, I am also reading The Summer Book by Tove Jansson, a recent reissue of one of her adult novels. (of course she is most famous for her invention of the Moomins...)
So far I have enjoyed reading this book, with it's bizarre relationship between a disgruntled grandmother and her even more disgruntled granddaughter living on a mostly uninhabited island in the gulf of Finland. I can't help but feel though, that there is something a little awry with the translation. oh well. The nature descriptions alone are worth it.
I guess I've also been taking a lot of photos. Once upon a time, that was all I did.
I've also been hanging out with friends:
And looking at babies with potato-sack-legs:
And drawing little potato-sack girls:
ps. I've also been mourning the death of Polaroid. To see some more beautiful Polaroids, go here and here.
