It's a much needed day at home, just the boys and I.
Laundry is going, bread is rising, boys are reading.
And I am taking a quiet moment with my cup of tea next to me.
Just savoring the moment.
The deepest thoughts of the moment are what I should turn the bread dough into.
Shall I make one cinnamon raisin swirl?
Shall I add some of the rosemary I picked this morning to another?
Some of each, maybe?
I am sitting in the kitchen. From here I can look out back and see the grass and gardens. What a thrill! I am also surrounded by the flowers I picked this morning-cosmos and a happy sunflower.
I spent a few minutes in the garden this morning before the boys were up. I had seen some frogs in the window well of the basement when I was exercising this morning. I caught them up and released them in the garden. I hope they stick around! So little and perfect and as an added bonus they eat bugs, of which we have plenty.
Jimmy's garden is such a place of delight now. I filled the space with flowers and herbs. The sunflowers just started blooming yesterday, something my neighbor on that side has been looking forward to. She told me she looks out every morning to see how they are doing. Now she has something to see! (And something to watch besides me. Ahem.)
Our home feels so peaceful today. What a blessing.
I'm off now to built a train track. Hope you are having a loverly day as well.
