February 2017: Sentimental Sarcasm for the Resistance
Thursday, August 18, 2016
Green, Green Grass
Normally, August’s heat results in lawn that looks parched. Mowing slows down to once every two weeks. This summer, we had a period of dry heat in late June. August has determined to make up for that and though it’s been hot, that heat has been accompanied by otherworldly humidity and frequent drenching rainstorms. The grass isn’t parched; it’s thick and damp. The mower is earning its keep this August.
I am with the resistance and I take comfort that the majority is with me. I like to read (I just finished Undaunted Courage by Stephen E. Ambrose), garden, cook, and talk.
I love….happy knees, a pile of good books, fresh sheets on my bed, hearts and polka dots, lengthening days, a certain teenage boy, my morning coffee, swimming, my amaryllis, red sweaters, spring catalogs, comfy sneakers, homemade brownies, freshly-painted toenails, ponytails, my Valentine, and finding time for a workout.
