NOT HOW MUCH YOU DO BUT HOW MUCH LOVE YOU PUT IN THE DOING
Sleeping in and walking up at leisure. Rainshower sunbursts with the pounding rumble of a sudden downpour. The smell of paint and turpentine, a heady bouquet. Vacuuming the house and folding the clean, soft, fresh-scented laundry. The white globes of the new hanging lamp in the dining room glowing in the light of the full moon as I pad across the house in the darkness. Good news from my sister, chatty telephone conversations with my brother. An evening over at friends, stuffed full of good dinner and great dessert: baked green apple crisp with vanilla bean ice cream. A positive-sounding message for my husband, keep your fingers crossed! A delicious Sunday night dinner: homemade sauté of tender chicken, butter-smooth haricots verts, crispy water chestnuts, meltingly tasty mushrooms over perfectly sticky jasmine rice. A walk in the rain-washed world with a chattering child by my side. A stone wall completely netted in green with tiny tiny violets scattered over it like amethysts. Closing a good book and getting ready to open another one. Fat and frozen plump and juicy blueberries. Finding the perfect present online for my mom, who celebrated a birthday yesterday but isn't home yet from her travels to pick up the message waiting for her.

Sounds like a divine Sunday, knowing how busy you can be, I'm glad you had time to appreciate it. :-D

I totally did, even though I was still busy. I seem to be hardwired for busyness. :)

Fingers crossed! And happy birthday, Lizardmom!

It worked!!! I'll post more about it as soon as I have the go-ahead.

Thanks for the birthday greetings. I had a fun time shopping in Jackson Hole, WY. and dinner at a great Italian restaurant in Victor, Idaho. Lizardmom
