  • Mood:

All things bright and...hmmm....

The weekend migraine is finally easing off, though the house looks like someone didn't spend time straightening up or cleaning this weekend (or for the past month, for that matter.)   With out-of-state company coming by this afternoon, that's not great.

OTOH, the bread is in the oven beginning to smell wonderful. 

And I found four different things in bloom (in the yard only) to put in a little vase for the kitchen table, which is clean, has a clean cloth on it, and plates and eating utensils laid out.   Ironweed, firecracker bush, Mexican oregano, and scarlet sage.  Two colors of purple ("aggressive" and "gentle"), orange, and pure true red.

And the headache's eased off. 

Rain, on the other hand, did not fall upon us even though it got very, very close and sprinkled (we did get four tenths of an inch yesterday evening.)    At least it's cloudy and thus not evaporating the four tenths immediately after they fall (this happens.  Hard shower, sun comes out, wind dries it, plants get nothing.) 

I'm gathering energy to shove things on the living room floor under the piano so we can move around *a little* in there.
