Because I Can
What you hear in my house right now: birds, children playing outside, a plane overhead, more birds. What you don't hear: laboring air conditioners, fans, ice melting. The heat has broken and the windows are open.
What we have here is one glorious summer afternoon.
I sauntered out into the garden to see what was up. Green nicotiana getting ready to spread it's heavenly night scent. Sungold tomatoes ripening for the eating. Shasta daisies looking so summery I almost forget how invasive they will be. Oh, and the hens and chicks look like they're trying to grow themselves some shade.
I better wrap this up and saunter back out to give everything a big drink of water and a little attention. The best thing is: I don't have to go outside I want to be outside. Please, sir, I want some more.
