Wonderful choices are easier on Tuesdays.

Monday was hard.  All day at work I had clients with terrible problems and terrible attitudes.  I rushed home to wash dishes and start on my (million item) to-do list.

I took this picture out my car window at a stop light just off my exit, because the wildness and the flowers pleased me. When I got home, I spent some time wandering around the yard checking on the Growing Things - the fig tree gaining tiny, hard green fruit, the dried, gnarly grape vine advancing tiny florescent leaves. It was peaceful and nourishing, and then I went inside, freaked out about my messy kitchen, and yelled at my husband.

The world is a beautiful place, and I am in it. Somehow, I have to learn to turn off the frantic inside me and just take in the wonderful.

  1. Preach it, Baby. I've been doing the same thing (Hmmm, who taught us this?), wandering around the yard for a few minutes each day to check on the flowers and trees and my herbs and tomatoes. I always come in feeling more relaxed. Maybe we just need to get rid of our kitchens...and bathrooms.


Farmers love back talk. Tell me more...
