practically perfect in every way

... that's what yesterday was. it was sunny and warm and breezy and bright. i walked the puppies up and down the driveway a couple times in my new super-sneakers. the orthotics make the shoes so comfy i can't wait to fully break them in and get back to my walking routine. neither, i think, can buddy - who needs to lose at least 30 pounds. (oh, for the life of one of my dogs.)

i gathered a big basket of pine cones, and a few herbs. there's a patch of thyme growing obligingly by the front path - i'm going to dig it up and bring it in. i finished painting meg's closet and began putting things away in it - neatly. it's coming together really well. the stuff for the bathroom has already been delivered and we just need to coordinate with joe the builder.

i think i discovered an elderberry bush growing in front of the house - i need to take some pictures to confirm it with my herbalist friends before i get too many crazy ideas in my head. i spent some time singing and playing the piano, and considering my writing. i took another look at the introduction to the Angel manuscript and think i may make a few tweaks. i went to bed with a tummy full of warm milk and puff pastry twists.

in fact, it was such a nice day yesterday, i'll take another twenty years or so, please :).

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
