Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I was working, there would be days when the sky was blue and the temperature so perfect that I would bemoan the fact I had to sit in a windowless office behind a computer screen.
My co-working friends would agree that we should play hooky and go for a cup of coffee alfresco. Of course, we never did (unfortunately).
Well, today was one of those perfect days. And since I'm no longer employed, I fully intended to extract every ounce of Vitamin D (and joy) I could.
After dropping my son at school (and dealing with some crazy traffic), I stopped by The Secret Garden project.
I had previously taken some of the yarnbomb pieces home to wash and this was the last piece that needed to be reattached. Without my even asking, our friendly garden keeper who is from Bangladesh offered me a helping hand.
My next stop was the beach where I was surprised to discover that it must be ladybug season.
They were everywhere.
On my newspaper.
On my yarn.
On my hook.
Even on me.
I crocheted a little granny square for the bench.
Left a little love behind.
And then took a walk along the beach where I found more signs of love all around.
A quick run home to get something to eat and then I was back out the door for an hour long walk.
The rest of the afternoon was spent watering plants on both balconies, making lunch and a few other household duties, plus a little crochet.
The perfect ending to the day was when my husband called to tell me to run outside to see the moon which resulted in a walk around the neighborhood.
March's Full Worm Moon is bright and beautiful.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
