|Mount St. Laundry|
I have not washed today's dishes...or even yesterday's.
I have not even picked up my haphazardly strewn shoes off of the bathroom floor to put them where they go which is only about 10 linear feet away.
|(They're pretty cute shoes, though, huh?)|
I have, however, done some planting.
|Can you guess what this lettuce planter's made out of?|
|basil, dill, and chocolate mint|
|Two different types of raised beds with beans, tomatoes,|
cantaloupe, and strawberries
I have watched baby birds hatch and grow in a nest on the front porch.
I have set out vases of wild daisies, picked by Ma Luffin Mayun and Little Big Man, all over the house.
And I have laid on my belly to capture the field of dandelions formerly known as our back lawn.
I have done a lot of things that I love over the last several days. Conversely, I have not done a lot of the things that peg out pretty low on my personal fun-ometer. That's fine, really. It is what it is. But tomorrow the us-es will need clean, neat clothes to wear or to pack for trips out of the country (read: Ma Luffin Mayun is headed to Asia for ten days) and fresh dishes to eat and drink out of, so I will put aside the "haves" of the past few days and tackle the "have-nots" like a good grown up.
I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm rich in it all, really. So, I will have not any complaints...
