Around here I'm glad to have my walking shoes on again after a week of car riding and sitting. I've missed the movement and fresh air, even though I got caught in a downpour this afternoon.
Around here I'm craving fresh fruits and vegetables. A week of restaurant food will do that to you. Fortunately, it's the time of year where there are plenty of choices to satisfy that craving. Yum!
Around here I'm hoping I can beat the birds to the blueberries growing in the backyard. If so, it will be a first as they pluck them as soon as they begin to show any color at all. I may have to invest in one of those nets so the berries will have a chance to ripen.
Around here we're playing lots of catch-up. One of the first things on the list was to rid the car of smashed bugs and road grime. A clean car makes me happy.
So does neatly pressed clothes although getting them to that point doesn't necessarily. Around here the washing and ironing is all caught up...at least for the moment.
Around here the corner of the back yard smells divine. The gardenias bushes are covered in creamy white flowers that fill the air with their heavenly scent. I could stand down there and smell them all day but then who'd do all those catch-up chores.
Around here the first thing I noticed when we pulled in was the new fronds on the sago palm. It looks almost like a crown...or maybe a feathered headdress. No matter which I'm happy to see our long-time friend rebound from the ice storm.
There's a long list of things to be done around here. Good thing Mother Nature is giving us more rain. Not that we need it but it's a good excuse to stay inside and whittle away at that to-do list tomorrow. If you're looking for me, I'll be around here.
