Today I do not feel obliged to do dishes, laundry, or any other chore. My day started with homemade waffles courtesy of my wonderful husband, then I spent the morning puttering around the yard, and then I set up the light box and took a bunch of soap pictures with my new-used camera. I watched a hummingbird visit the columbines, flitting around little white butterflies. Now I am sitting by the fountain, with knitting and iced tea close at hand, getting pelted occasionally by falling walnut flowers, wondering what I should do for the rest of the day. Maybe just this.
(the view from my reclining lawn chair. this is the budding walnut tree that is dropping spent flowers on me. they look a bit like lumpy caterpillars.)
