Refreshing Water With Cool Clouds While Basil Works

July 18 2023

It’s nearly impossible for me to describe how much I love being in the water.

I had a luxurious swim this morning after my walk and HIIT workout. Felt delicious.

Also, cool clouds and lamppost outside of Shim’s Surplus last night.

Came home from my workout to this. Chad Basil the First, so darn cute, even when he’s on the table, and he’s not supposed to be. 🖤🖤🖤

Basil has decided to take up reading. His first choice seems like a great one! And also, I think he’s smiling at me! 🖤🖤🖤
