Unfortunately it wasn’t the best day ever–a few hiccups that aren’t earth shattering, just some things that dampened my mood. I just wrote a sentence about lemons into lemonade and I remembered that I saw a bumper sticker this morning on the back of a very old subaru that read something like, when life hands you lemons just think oh look! free lemons! and additionally saw a little sign in a bookstore this afternoon with a Scottish proverb etched into that read, be happy while you’re living for you’re a long time dead. At the first of these two I admit to rolling my eyes slightly because it was early and I was already working on some lemons (and possibly driving one) of my own. The second of these sage tid bits just made me laugh a little. How true. So, I came home, caught my breath with Drew, ate some ice cream and took pictures of the little things. The little growing things. And so, without further ado, I share with you some triplés d’affection, or things in three that make me happy.
zinnias (too high for you, mr greedy rabbit!):
Tomatoes blushing and peeking, and a lone jalapeno guarding the perimeter:
And the patio flowers sitting like chatty women keeping an eye on the comings and goings of the yard:
I guess some days it just takes proverbs and plants and ice cream to keep one’s perspective on point.
