copacabana

the may sun and breeze have stolen my heart. 
i am sun burnt and filthy and never have been happier about it in my life.

i've been out all morning attempting to spray paint cabana stripes on a $10 outdoor rug for the back patio.
my hunt for a store bought one ended when i saw dollar signs in the hundreds. ack! 
so far as i can tell, making my own is going to be a real disaster.
i'm a mess of tape and paint over here...with no guarantees.
but the skies are clear, the sun is out, 
and at the very least i get a funny story and one ugly rug out of the deal.
p.s. how is it wednesday already?
