recent rainy weather has departed and
left in its wake a lushness of living
green. The sun filters through the green
forest canopy and falls in dappled glory
on the floors and furniture surrounding
I'm having a quiet day so far. Attila has a list of things he wants to accomplish on his one day off. Attila prefers to work alone and uninterrupted when he tackles his projects. Weekdays and weekends blend together for me, because the day of the week makes very little difference to my activities.
This morning a loaf of Orange Loaf is baking in the oven. The weather is still cool enough for baking, so I am taking advantage of that. Dishes are washed, dried, put away. A load of laundry is in the wash, to be hung out to dry later this morning. My desk has been tidied and now I am now making a list of little jobs that can be accomplished today.
My deck garden is doing very well. It consists of pots of zucchini, swiss chard, tomatoes of different varieties and basil. I like the deck garden for a variety of reasons. It is easy to watch over, as it is right outside my window. It is easy to care for, just a few pots that need watering and weeding. I can also control insects by hand in such a limited garden; yesterday I removed a caterpillar that was making free with the new zucchini leaves.
I've slowed down a bit with my genealogy book, becoming side-tracked while I explored employment possibilities. That was a dead end, so I'll have more time now to devote to my research.

"Once you can laugh at your own weaknesses, you can move forward. Comedy breaks down walls. It opens up people. If you're good, you can fill up those openings with something positive. Maybe... combat some of the ugliness in the world."
