Yes…it’s been a while…
I have various excuses on hand (one of them being a combination of laziness and the big bang theory), but let’s not dwell.
I have been quite busy the last week, including my close-to-nature experience of last night with my best friend and her sister.
It all started with their determination to prove to their parents that they could definitely manage to camp in a tent for a night (I’m not entirely sure how that happened but there seemed to be mention of a five star hotel, a bathrobe, and much smugness on somebody’s part). And I was then invited to join them in their endeavor.
So, I arrived, and since I don’t own a sleeping-bag, we began thinking of other comfortable methods of spending the night in the grass. We set up:
- A tent.
- A hammock.
- A lounge chair.
- Two air-mattresses.
The tent came with one little problem, namely that we were missing one of the pin-down-thingies #professionallingo
However, being the ressourceful geniuses that we are, we came up with an alternative solution:This was eventually achieved, and it started getting dark, so naturally, we proceeded to gossip and tell totally intimate secrets. #omgsosneaky
And then, as it got darker, we realized the grass was comfy, so with two sleeping bags and the air-mattresses, we completely left the tent and its friends at one end of the garden, and made ourselves comfortable under the night sky.
AND THEN THE AMAZINGNESS HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SUDDENLY DOZENS OF SHOOTING STARS JUST STARTED FLYING AROUND.
I AM NOT EVEN JOKING.
I HAD NEVER SEEN ONE BEFORE.
It was magic :)
So, we started doing some serious wishing. Like, big-time abitiousness here.
But I won’t tell you what my wishes were and ruin my magical chances.
We fell asleep at about 1 in the morning, and then woke up at the crack of dawn to the totally *un-judgemental* stares of joggers passing by. But hey, we had more fun than they did, so I regret nothing.
Here are some proof pictures:
Oh, and I forgot to mention: the shooting stars turned out to be the result of the meteor showers. Just fyi. #funfact. Yeah.
Ah, it’s nice to talk to my lovely readers again. ˆˆ
