Such an idyllic day.
It’s 74 degrees outside, a soft breeze is blowing.
I am barefoot.
I relaxed in the back garden and painted my toes strawberry red and finished a scifi novel.
The cat napped (and yawned) in a pool of sunshine.
I found the first pink rose of the spring.
A neighbor dropped by to share fresh spring lettuces from his garden, a welcome addition to our dinner tonight!
mOm made Granny’s German potato salad while I watched, taking notes.
Another knock at the front door was a young neighbor, selling raffle tickets as part of her fundraising for next year’s fair. She’s joining the Miss Junior Calaveras County contest. I hope she wins, she’s so lovely and charming. Hope one of our raffle tickets is a winner too!
Sundays in the country are so charming and relaxing, with soft warm weather, nice neighbors, a beautiful day, an even more beautiful dinner to come.
Sundays with family are such a gift.
I will miss it here.
