House of Representatives side of the Capitol, reflected from the skylight of the underground visitors center.
I wanted to go to the newish visitor center at the Capitol, but they wouldn't let me in because my backpack was too big. I tried repeatedly to finish a drawing, but the lead in the pencil kept breaking, no matter how carefully I sharpened it. I couldn't sleep last night even though I was tired. Couldn't sleep late this morning because of all the barking dogs in the house (bless their hearts).
My favorite coffee place no longer sells my favorite coffee beans, all the blueberries I wanted to sprinkle into my breakfast cereal had shrivelled, a couple of clients cancelled at the last second yesterday. Oy vey.
Might as swell switch it into neutral. Like my spirit guides said, there's nothing to do but kick back and wait. It is August, after all, the most sluggish month of the year in Washington DC. You can't push the river. I know, I've tried. It is strangely encouraging to read that many members of my blog family have had the same sort of week. Let's blame it on the stars, shall we? Oh yeah!
Walking tour of the last block of East Capitol, from 2nd Street to the Capitol grounds. That building - the Capitol - is really BIG.
