I am so sloppy even though I try not to be after I finished I had to mop the kitchen. So by the time I was finished cleaning up it was almost time to cook dinner. Did I do a single thing I planned. Nope, but I didn't feel too bad because I know when the cold winds blow outside. I can take a bit of sunshine out of the freezer and remember the taste of summer.
" She drove on, for time was passing, She came out presently on high g round and looked down over the great plain and across it to the far line of blue hills. She saw a city, so alchemized by distance and blue air that it's towers and spires seemed drifting on the plain like the vision of Lyonesse that is seen floating out to sea. Between her and the city she saw villages and farmsteads and the gleam of silver where river and stream wound through the water meadows. Against the steep slopes below her apple blossom broke like spray." (The Scent of Water, pg.33)
Time to go take care of the small things like Sasha and the chickens and play in the garden. Along with all of the other mundane things I do but am reminded to look for the beauty I can find therein. Have a lovely Thursday,
