I know I’ve been MIA around here lately. I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve been very busy and rather distracted. As the days get warmer, the urge to spend time outdoors, before the heat gets too suffocating, becomes harder to ignore. I’ve been doing some gardening – flowers are always a delight and a distraction. In the meantime, we’ve had two days of ferocious winds that have wreaked havoc on some of my seedlings.
I have, of course, read all the lovely comments that you left on my last post. Many of them made me smile. We may never meet, but I do know that I have quite a few kindred spirits out there.
The howling wind has reminded of this song from the 80s by local band Ray and The Characters.
As the last few hours of Mother’s Day slowly tick away, I trust that all of you who are mothers and grandmothers have had a good one. I was woken up by the soft patter of bare toes on stone tiles as my Mischief Maker planted a kiss on my nose and got in bed beside me, whispering ‘Happy Mother’s day’ in my sleepy ears. It doesn’t get much better than that.
And I wouldn’t change it for the world.
