loving my sunny tiny home in the spring.
loving filling it with friends and flowers.
my girls came over on sunday to help me garden.
kim went to the farm store with me the night before to help me pick the best seeds for cutting bouquets.
everyone out and about in the warmer weather
means afternoons at the park
and more spontaneous drop-by visits
(9th grade boys knocked while I was melting old wax down; so they made candles too).
potted plants and watering new green,
vases full of color in every room,
lots of dates at the town bakery, dinners and baking and walks...
i am enjoying this season.
"[The wren] delivers such a cantering praise-
For the early morning, the taste of the spider,
for his small cup of life
that he drinks from every day, knowing it will refill.
All things are inventions of holiness...

Fawvers made new counters. It's way exciting. I "helped" (ate their food while they worked).
...every morning, there's my own cup of gladness."
