Some days happiness is as simple as leaving work early and getting a HOT pink pedicure (and your eyebrows done).
And then to come home on a cloudy day and take a walk in my neighbor's garden among these seriously orange poppies and these "hotter than pedicure pink" peonies. Sweet.
On Sunday we had a yard full of neighborhood children. They did somersaults down our "hill" and shouted that our backyard was awesome. One wondered if we were rich because we had so many flowers and trees. When your playing fields are an alley or the streets, I guess our back yard is an oasis.
So I am feeling pretty rich today. The first of the alpine strawberries has set fruit, same with the peach tree. The raspberries aren't far behind and I'm already picking herbs. And to hear "I'm Not Your Boy Toy" sung by 7 and 8 year olds? Priceless.
