meditation shrine

i live for the stormy days of summer like today.
my windows and doors are open.
the grass smells wet.
the air is humid and thick and fresh.
a break from the heat and sun beating down.
perfect for weeding.
and taking care of a sick baby max.
after a sleepless night,
and a cranky baby up at 6am,
{who was napping by 8:30}
i'm thinking it's been a sinus infection all along.
i was just furiously hoping it was allergies.
for the past 3 1/2 weeks.
poor thing.
and in june.
i can't decide if i'm glad it's not allergies or not.
#1 mom award to me,
thank you thank you,
i'll be here all week.
making my children suffer.
le sigh.
my garden makes me smile.
b/c i planted all of these from seeds.
and it appears my tomatoes are sprouting something.
and the green beans are getting big and bushy.
sunflowers that are almost as tall as max.
sometimes i will go and sit in front of them.
for awhile.
like it's some kind of meditation shrine.
it's all very exciting out in that dirt.
trust me.

Saturdays child digs in the dirt.

Wasn't that a poem about the day of the week you were born? Were you born on a Saturday?

Hmm... Ryder has a had a cold for about a month now.. maybe I should take him in.
I always have little day dreams or visions of being a gardener- but yeah it just doesn't happen

I think we must live in different states because you always get such better weather than I do. Wet? Humid? Stormy? Where was all of that? So not fair! As for the garden, it looks lovely, and I am sure it is exhilarating knowing you did it.
