A BIT OF SUN


It's sunny, though relatively cool…69˚F the last time I checked. Nevertheless there are several turtles—map turtles, I think—basking on a rock in the big riffle adjacent to the cottage. (Only two are visible in the photo above, but there's another, even smaller one, on the back side of the stone beyond the largest specimen.)

Getting a bit of sun sounds like a pretty good idea to me. I've been working inside all day—writing, fiddling with several household chores, warming up a bowl of soup for a late lunch. Not a full day's worth of labor, to be sure, but enough that I think I've honestly earned an hour's break on the chaise lounge—maybe even a snooze. 

Afterwards, there are 16 salvia plants, bought yesterday, which I need to get in the ground. And a whole bunch of stuff to water.

Penny…

It was a good idea…except I got sidetracked planting my flowers and watering, then messing around with other tasks in the yard and kitchen. Didn't actually sit down until after Myladylove got home and we'd had supper—at which point we took our meal on the front deck. That was about 6:30 p.m.

Hi Grizz - I like your days on the river. The view, the chores, the harmony, the love, the truths, the meals, the surrender in the best possible of ways. Amen
Love Gail
peace......

Huh! Thought I'd posted and answered your comment yesterday. I guess my mind is about as decrepit as the rest of me! Please forgive me for such a stupidity. Too much running around lately, like a chicken with its head cut off!

Love you
Gail
