June 2017: Ready for Some Time Off From the Nonsense
Monday, March 14, 2016
I collected these hand-carved wooden bunnies when I lived in Nebraska. As Easter approaches, I set them out and enjoy their company. I first bought the carvings simply because they were cute and I love rabbits. But as my collection grew and years passed, the bunnies came to be a reminder of the passing years. When JT was small, the bunnies were placed on a higher shelf. Toddler JT liked to gently hold each bunny in his hands; sometimes I’d let him tuck one of the more durable rabbits in his pocket. Their presence in this window sill (next to some framed family pictures) is both a reminder of Spring and a tour of some very happy memories.
I long for a few days free from Trump’s persistent diminution of our nation. Anxiety for our future is taking its toll. I like to read (I just finished an old favorite, Miss Read’s Winter in Thrush Green ), garden, cook, and talk.
I love….time to be outside, lengthening days, cats in the windowsill, flip flop weather, tiny peaches on my peach tree, fresh sheets on the bed, soft quilts, time off, my garden, completed chores, red sandals, blue skirts, fresh pedicures, outdoor lights, double begonias, my stack of summer books, the new chairs on the back deck, my fairy garden, and days with time enough to work out.
