Brilliant day. In the sixties. All the doors are open. All the pets are stretched out in the full sun, snoring away and catching some Ds (Vitamin Ds). Rob and a friend are tinkering away at house stuff. Alex is with a friend post tennis screaming with joy over a Pokemon computer game. It’s Prince Dauntless’ only day off this week, so I am not going to get on his back about what he should do or not. He has been a soldier with every night until 9 (even Fridays)…and all day Saturdays too for this play. Gloria is riding. I am writing to you, thinking about an interesting grant opportunity for the Farmers Market and putting some plans together for making naan tonight.
Its been an interesting weekend, not the one I planned. But we are being helpful with a friend who needs the support—so we have been here for him. He needs people to listen and frankly, to parent him a bit He needs to sleep and eat and rest and stop the craziness he has gotten himself into. Its working. He is coming back to himself…as I keep pushing food his way, making coffee, adding a cookie, offering a chip. He had a bath that was transforming…and after a nap and a good nights sleep…its night and day. After a day, he looks a zillion times better. One day at a time. This is the least we can do.
I was geekifying this morning on my iPad—reading about warps, envelopes and the like and actually have turned an interesting corner in more things being possible/easier to do with this amazingly wonderful, not terribly friendly tool, Adobe Illustrator. New tricks! I am feeling quite frisky.
The week promises warm weather, 2300˚ at the Museum, and many practices for Alex. The fuzzy magnolia buds are shiny and grey. Our day lilies are showing a bit of green in the ground. The daffodils are trying very hard to pretend its that time to wake up. I hope my cherry trees survived the winter. Time to buy a few more!
I have an asparagas heart on the drawing board with plans for peaches, beets, and turnips. Maybe a root heart (all sorts of roots?). And then, before we know it, Princess Kitty will be back among us! Hurray!
