Bees using lavender as springboards over to another. Tiny unknown flying objects sparkle in the sun while the dogs follow me around the yard, digging where I dig. Me, trying to tame the grapes from taking over hydrangeas. And prune one of the Snowball Viburnums (badly planted spot) into submission of being a smaller version. A robin so robust, I thought it was a crow ... just waiting for some juicy worm to show itself in dewy grass.
I am on vacation. Trying not to let my brain explode with my endless "to-do" list. Instead, enjoying feeling freedom to explore the yard, the studio, catch up on correspondence needing a stamp. Chores, like installing a new area rug in the living room, some dusting, cleaning. But not too much the first day. Also thinking of a road trip to San Francisco via Shasta Lake (for a day of fishing). Right now, it is all spinning around in my head. Tomorrow, we might be packing the car.
