On the third day of an endless Cough/Sneeze Cold Marathon,
I have decided to be very Specific about what might possibly help
to pull me out of this Momentary Misery. Not just a random
"Please Send Sunshine & Warmth."
I'll need a chaise ... .
beside a sparkling pool ... .
and a small bell to summon the butler
to bring a tray of cool lemonade, fresh strawberries,
madelines, and Laduree Macarons.
I'll need complete privacy .. .. .
so I won't have to Fear the Greatest Fear:
anyone seeing my thighs.
(alas, the result of too many madelines & macarons )
I'll need trees and large umbrellas .. .
because sunshine is better when we can
retreat to a shady spot.
I'll need some ancient castle ruins along one side
of the pool to provide a bit of crumbling drama.
Yes - that should do very nicely.
On second thought ... . .
I might consider forgoing a bit of privacy
if a few friends care to join me.
Anyone else needing a bit of R & R ???
