I spent the first half of my day today
working on an appeal of a marriage nullity case to Rome.
I spent the second half of my day
working on plans for the new school year.
By dinner time I was fried.
After dinner, I took The Baby down the road to get our mail.
While I lament not having a garden again this year,
I am thoroughly enjoying the wild prairie that grows along our road --
hearing the grasses rustling in the wind,
smelling the warm pines,
taking in the colors -- bright red and deep green,
sunny orange and emerald.
I love the daisies,
and the thistles,
in varying stages of bloom,
and, oh, the sunflowers!
The Baby enjoyed her explorations too --
feeling the warm sun,
touching the grasses
And I enjoyed my daughter's wonder, and her antics.
Along the road, I am renewed.
I am ready for bed.
I am ready for tomorrow.
