My god, yesterday was wonderful. Dave's parents climbed into a taxi at 6:15 a.m. and headed for Heathrow and their flight home. Dave went back to work. And I was left quietly, blessedly alone for the entire day.
I did laundry. I cleaned. I read. I took a nap. I was so happy.
I thought about running, but instead I took a leisurely walk over to a neighborhood graffiti spot and took photos.
Oh, I forgot to relate some exciting news on the photography front -- Yahoo requested two photos from my Flickr stream for their gallery of Olympics images. As a result, each photo has received more than 6,800 views -- many, many more than any of my other photos on Flickr. It's kind of exciting, even though I still don't get any money. I like to think I'm building a reputation and collecting points for my resume, but I might just be a sucker.
