One Summer Day

sunset...

The day's work is done. I was on my knees weeding the gardens around the patio at 7:00 this morning. The heavenly blue morning glories have sprouted against the fence, the violets planted in early spring have finished blossoming but their leaves make lovely patches of green. The chives, the basil, the mint, and the oregano are thriving. I have breakfast there very morning and often eat supper there as well.



Two loads of laundry have been washed, line dried, folded, and put away. I mowed the lawn, weeded the vegetable garden and replenished the hummingbird feeder. Cleaning and baking will have to wait until tomorrow's rain keeps me indoors.

there was even time for a nap in my screen house

What a PERFECT place for a nap! You sound like a dynamo. I hope you take time to stop and smell the roses or whatever is blooming right now!

Pauline said...

Barbara - I had to laugh at dynamo as a descriptive word for me. I do all this at a leisurely pace (remember, I had all day). There's plenty of time in all my days to enjoy each moment.

". . . a leisurely pace". Good for you, P.

Paul said...

Pretty much heaven if you ask me.

Heavenly day, & heavenly way to spend it!
My garden needs some TLC.... if only it would stop raining!

Pauline said...

Paul - if heaven is of our own making, then yes, this is heaven indeed

B - I've never been in favor of fast unless it's a getaway ;)

meggie - it's been raining here a good deal too, and chilly! I'm ready for 90 degrees and humid!

Molly said...

Ninety degrees and humid? I've got the place for you! You might not enjoy it as much as you think though. I'd stay put if I were you. Sounds like you've got heaven right there.....

A good, good day.

a lovely summer's day...full and filling.

Pauline said...

Molly - indeed. If there is a heaven, this place would be my description!

HHB - yes, yes!

Sky - and fulfilling. I like nothing better than a day filled with both purpose and non-purpose; work, rest and play in their turn - what could be better?

Hey there AM, I haven't "seen" you around lately, I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer it seems. Take care, H

Pauline said...

Hey AD - I am visiting a friend in the far reaches of Vermont and she has very sporadic internet service, I am "taking it easy" this summer and spending far more time outside than in so my blogging time has been sharply curtailed. I hope once I rejoin the community I still have readers!
