the big unwind

salty taffy pistachio ice cream

Spring came today, three days late, but just in time. The sun shone all day. It was hot on my back and I had to take off my sweater while I weeded the front garden patch. It wasn't just the shot of 'real' vitamin D — I got plenty of that walking around the other day — something was different today. Perhaps it was me? I was excited and calm all at once. I couldn't wait to get out into the sun and the garden, but I was happy to stay in bed a few extra minutes to give the cats some cuddle time. (cat people, hey?)

Today I ate guacamole. I put lemons in my water. I sunbathed on the bed in the afternoon with the kitties. I listened to gospel over and over. I planted more sweet peas, and poppies and checked on my arugula and radishes (nothing yet, but it's only been a week!). I sneaked spoonfuls of the above ice cream every chance I got. (tiramisu, pistachio, salty toffee)

Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous too. I hope to wake up early and plant my lettuces before I head to work. I can't wait for fresh salad greens! Just a few herbs, tomatoes, and strawberries to add and I get to sit back and drink spiked lemonade every night and look on proudly at the greenery I have nurtured and the food I am providing with my own hands and very dirty finger nails. Or everything will get hit by aphids like usual — what a fun summer guessing game it will be! (now taking bets).

This is the face that he makes at me 90% of the time. Little asshole.

I hope you had a great Friday — the cats and I did.
