One recipe for a Satisfying Day just fell together starting as soon as I woke up yesterday.
*Waking up early enough to take a walk before church.
*Picking pineapple guava petals from a hedge down the block
and sharing them with a neighbor who was also out walking.
My cousin Anne told me that you can eat them,
and they truly are as sweet as candy.
*Not putting off drudgery such as stretches and floor exercises.
*Managing to stand through most of church (this was easier after having walked, etc.)
and receiving Holy Communion, on the Sunday of All Saints of America.
*Wowing over the catalpa tree at church. Each flower is like an orchid…
*Shopping for garden twine at the nursery across the road from church
and finding seeds as well 🙂
*Talking to my dear cousin Renée on the phone
while sitting in the garden with the sun on my back.
*Taking pictures of bees on the thyme while talking.
*Sorting through pictures of bees I took before and finding some good ones.
*Taking more pictures of bees on the echium.
*Sorting through more pictures.
*Taking an evening walk beside the creek and studying the mystery grass again.
*Identifying a plant in the creek: It’s buckeye! I know buckeye, but only as a tree; I wasn’t used to seeing leggier growth in the creek. This picture shows some of the lighter green leaves of buckeye in the creek, a mature tree above, and even some mystery grass in the middle. I don’t think it’s Timothy grass, which one of my commenters suggested, but it looks more like Timothy than anything else so far:
*Going to bed too soon to finish this post last night,
but early enough to contribute to a new recipe for yet another Good Day!
