It's been a rough couple of weeks around here. I mentioned last week that I went to the dentist and was sore, but I didn't mention that I also developed a sinus infection at the same time, and the sinus pressure combined with nerve pain from the dentist has been nothing short of epic...possibly the most intense pain I've ever felt in my life at a couple points. So needless to say, there hasn't been a lot of leaving the house lately. It's a shame really because the weather has been absolutely gorgeous around here. I'm hoping I feel well enough to get out a bit this weekend.
I guess the bright side is that all this time at home has been somewhat productive. I mentioned the shop update yesterday, and I've also discovered loads of photos on my computer from the past few months that I never found time to edit or post before. Here are a few random photos, all taken at twilight on different days.
Twilight in the summer is my absolute favorite time...even when the heat of the day won't break and the air is heavy. I feel like it's one of the few times in DC when people slow down, aren't always in a rush. People will take their time when they're walking their dogs down the sidewalk or stay a bit longer when sitting outside at a restaurant. If you could assign a personality type to a city, DC is definitely Type A most of the time, and I am most definitely not. And for a few brief moments on summer nights, I feel like everyone mellows out and matches my speed. :)
