Yesterday, inspired by Janette I think, I went to the farmers market. I found rosy fruits! I ate a whole bag of Rainer cherries so they are no longer around for photographing, but look at the apricots and the peaches! The colors are holy, aren't they? Oh, to be the color of a soft fruit. Smile.
As I walked by the stalls I heard, "Mrs. M!" A boy from my school was working behind one of the tables. So cute. He sells flowers with his grandpa! I had to buy this flat of white petunias, didn't I? Twelve dollars for all the four-packs! Score!
My poetry magazine came yesterday. I like it so much. One of my professors from my last college introduced me to this magazine. I like all the ads for low-residency MFA programs. I'd like to play around with THAT! Maybe some day.
New titles! My favorite: Cupboard Full of Coats. I have no idea what the story holds, but that's a great title. I bought a novel at the grocery store titled The Book of Summer. It's very nice so far, even though it is a little over stocked with similes. Ha ha.
Well, I must say that with the abundance of words for the taking, THIS sweet book holds the TRUE words and the BEST words. Look at some precious words here. "The earth is filled with your love, O Lord." That's SO true, right? Looking out my window today I am feeling loved by the green maple trees, the wind dancing with branches, a dog on a red leash following her person, and I smell that light scent of cool morning air, the smell of love. Oh, yes.
My good daughter-in-law made many owls for Aria's birthday party over a year ago. She gave each cousin an owl. When I am at Kelli's house I find the owls and place them on the shelf above the fireplace, because I love them so much. Now I have the pattern so I might make an owl or two today. I do like owls, don't you?
So, Sunflower Face, I hope the sun shines on you today and maybe a very red little ladybug bestows a kiss on your cute ear!
Oh! You should see my twig lady! Her face is so shriveled! Stay tuned!
