It’s been an incredibly busy week. We are a household in chaos. Drama camp, Sewing camp, Vacation Bible School, two full time jobs….it’s depleted all of us. The children are fussy, the parents are fussy, the uncut grass is tall, the laundry is piled in a chair, and takeout reigns supreme.
But this morning, I had a few minutes…
To look around…to enjoy things that are beautiful today…in this moment…
The morning glories have overtaken my favorite birdhouse. I love the messy opulence of it…
The illusion of the trailing vines spilling onto the ground…as opposed to their herculean effort of reaching toward the sun.
Zinnias so bright and beautiful that I had to capture them, just for a moment.
And bring them inside with a little Lantana
and Lemon Balm….heady stuff!
Just a few minutes of peace and purpose, tucked in at the end of a flurry of summering.
