My Lord. Sunday has been busy so far. For Lloyd, at least.
Mr. Moon and I had just finished our breakfast (and Ashley loves bacon and cheese grits, by the way) when a car pulled up with my Lisa-Lisa in it and our dear friend Michele and two other folks that I was mighty pleased to meet. We had a very sweet visit and a walk around the yard to see all the chickens and the goats next door and the big trees and they had some coffee and pecan pie. They were on their way home to Tampa after the big FSU-UF game which, even here in Lloyd is impossible to completely ignore although I do my best.
So that was fun and heart-warming and now Mr. Moon is loading up all sorts of ladders and tools to go do something in town which requires ladders and tools and I haven't even washed the breakfast dishes but who cares? It's a beautiful day, warm and sunny and Elvis is watching his hens scratch under the Bradford pear leaves and I might just go do some more weeding and maybe even go crazy and fertilize the collards.
I woke up today in a cheerful mood and because that is rare and beautiful for this time of year I'm surfing on it, loving it, being extremely grateful. I love showing my house and yard to people who have never seen it and it makes me see it through new eyes again although I am almost certain that never do I take it for granted. Never do I quit being charmed by my own little world and in fact, astonished that I get to live here.
So that's me today. Being all cheerful and grateful and playing with the kitty and hugging people I love and watching the light shift as the sun moves across the sky.
How are you?
