Since July is looking like a scorcher…it’s a mere 100 degrees as I type this…this is probably a bad idea. I may succumb to heat stroke. Or pull/break something as I push myself ever onwards to the finish line.
Washington, D.C. got some amazing heat throughout the day on June 29th (over 100 degrees Farenheit) and just when you thought you could settle down for the night…BAM right in the kisser.
A storm punched DC in the gut, then went for an uppercut to the chin.
Reports say that the wind gusted up to 75 mph in some places. I don’t know what speed wind is required to lift a city-issued trash bin off the ground and hurdle it 20 feet away, but that’s what I saw outside my window.
Let’s peek at some of the damage. This sure beats last year’s rather tame Hurricane Irene.
“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” – Ernest Hemingway
You don’t have to live in Paris to partake in this feast. Three days will get you started. Grab a wheel of brie and a glass of red wine, A Random Journey is ready to take you on a brief photo interlude. Feel free to pause at any time to book your flight to France. I’ll be here when (if) you return. Unless you think I should go with you? Yes, I think that’s best. Hold on, I’ll grab my passport…
For those wondering when the feast will end. Proceed.
One thing I noticed about the Louvre, there are a lot of twig and berries in full glory. Case in point…
I could go into more detail, but let’s change topics…
Notice how I didn’t post a photo of a certain painting? You’re welcome. If you really want to see it, open a new browser and Google ‘enigmatic smile’ and ‘ugly’. Scroll past the top searches of me and you’ll find it!
Psssst…above is duck liver pâté with bacon…and some sort of annoying lettuce.
So…how’s it going? It’s been awhile. Unfortunately for you, I’m back. Writing. Probably with a vengeance.
Yes, I’m still doing the random monthly goals. Yes, I do have a goal for June. Yes, I will tell you about it now.
My random goal for June is to write (and post) nine blog entries. Not counting this one. Why only nine? Seems like a low bar to set. The sky should be the limit.
First, my overall general goal with this blog is to post once a week. We all know that doesn’t happen… Although, I am on a once a week pace for the year. A break down of posts for each of the five months so far: 6, 6, 4, 2, 2 = 20. You can see I’ve been slacking in April and May.
Second, I want to push myself to write. Posting once a week means I should have four entries a month. I want to double that in June and add one more for good measure.
Third, I couldn’t think of anything better to do this month.
Good luck to me. I have my work cut out.
‘Wait just a darn second!’ you say, ‘What happened to your goal in May???? I don’t recall seeing anything about that!’
Good call. Thanks for reminding me. I did do something in May. Don’t you worry. I’m happy to tell you all about it. In one of my nine posts!
