The Perfect Day

It was an incredibly perfect day! Couldn't have asked for better if I had written the script myself!

The weather was warm and windy. The morning with the kids went fairly smoothly.

I walked the dog, walked with friends and then spent the remainder of the day tending the earth.

I added some color to what I call "the fox garden". Double impatiens in rosy red. Daisy-like zinnias in a bright orange, and petunias in a pot in purple and white. I spent some time weeding and some time planting, and a lot of time conversing with God.

I stopped by the rose bush to see how it fared the winter (and my pruning!). It appears to be very happy. And the "two sticks" in the yard, that were redbud trees that grew in my vegetable garden last summer, also appear to have survived their transition to a different location.

There is still much to do, but I love seeing the progression from year to year. I now have enough hosta to transplant again, and white woodland violets to do the same.

And then..... the kids came home from school. Yet, it continued to go well. I even crashed on the couch for about 30 minutes.

Finish up the day with a Mixed Martial Arts class, including - my FAVORITE - the roundhouse kick!!

The icing on the cake of the day is sitting here now, on the deck, with a cup of tea, a gentle breeze, and a (moderately) well-behaved dog, reviewing my day and considering all the ways I have been blessed.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, God!
