Today ended up being a really good day. I worked out, made good food, had long and interesting phone conversations with my friend, and another friend come by for mimosas and cappuccino, then in the evening I enjoyed an unexpected zen moment watering some very colorful wildflowers. I’d forgotten how satisfying that feels: The wet earth, the shiny green leaves, the delicate yet so well defined petals. Also, I was grateful because in the end I enjoy such simple pleasures most of all. Later I walked my dog at sunset and the trees were abuzz with insects. I feel peaceful and happy tonight.
