It was a resting day for me today. I was deliberately lazy and even napped. It was lovely.
I did a wandering of the yard and took note of the mulberries, leafing out and forming their fuzzy blossoms which will be fruit.
Also, the tiny unfolding leaves of the fig tree.
And the glory of the Japanese Magnolia.
I hung sheets on the line and left the eggs in the nest for the boys to find. I watered all of my potted plants and planted two rooted giant begonia leaves in a pot and set them on my porch table where I'll be able to easily tend them and to see when the new tiny green leaves appear.
In short, I did the things that make me happy.
And now the boys are here and we went out and found those eggs and they picked carrots in the garden and I picked greens for salad and now they are playing Wii with their grandfather and they have eaten pickled okra, watermelon, smoked almonds, and Chex Mix. They watched me give their grandfather his Vitamin B-12 shot and were most impressed although Gibson told me not to ever stick a needle in him. I assured him that I would never just give him a random shot.
I am going to make us pizza for supper. And salad. Which they probably will not eat.
They are growing so fast. Like the mulberry tree which just a few years ago was a bit of a twig in a pot and which is now at least twenty feet tall, reaching up into the blue sky.
It has been a day of counting my ever-increasing riches and abundance.
I have toted up the sum of all of it and am astounded once again.
Happy Friday, y'all.
