... is lying my sweaters out on the porch to dry so I can stuff them back in their box.
... is lounging in sweatpants, + actually liking it.
... is starting to realize that a bathing suit doesn't make an acceptable bra.
... is trying very hard not to think about packing.
... means less lonely nights + more partying like it's the 70s in every apartment somebody I know owns.
... is the end of homemade meals + the beginning of salads every day for lunch.
... means packing, for the third week in a row, for a somewhat more permanent vacation.

Q: What were you thinking?
A: That I'd like to win.
Q: How do you feel now?
[Replies provided by me]
Listening to these questions is tedious, and I'm sure answering them is a similar experience. As an answer to that, I have provided five questions of my own I'd like Mr. Phelps to answer:
1. Do you have a pool in your backyard?
2. What is your favorite swimsuit (that you own)?
3. Other than swimming, what is your favorite Olympic event to watch?
4. What was the best meal you ate while in Beijing?
5. You're the best swimmer in the world- now what?
You can answer in the comments section, or e-mail me directly if you'd like, sir.

That being said? I LOVE the weather this morning! It's cool, like a late September morning, before frost. I love the colder weather- the opportunities for layering clothing + wearing cozy sweaters becomes endless. Plus, all the good September food is available (apples, squash, late corn), and who doesn't love a cup of spiced hot cider?
Granted, this atmosphere will not last very long, but for now I can enjoy cuddling up in my bed under a stack of blankets, with my dog + my laptop.
Good Morning. ♥
