Sunflower Bouquet

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Our friends John and Nicole and their daughter, Juliet, are back in town to visit Nicole’s parents after moving to the west coast a couple years ago, and we’ve been spending our evenings together. Today Juliet and I colored while waiting for our supper to arrive and the adults caught up on each other’s lives.

2. While we were waiting for John and Nicole to get back to their hotel this evening, Rudi and I hung out in a nearby park. An adorable black lab puppy was playing fetch with its owner and a squeaky ball.

3. I brought my happy lights into work this week and then added a bouquet of sunflowers from the farmers market to my desk, which means that everyone comments how bright and cheerful my cubicle is now. (This doesn’t seem like the sort of office culture where they’re going to be excited about themed light strands and desk toys, so I’m trying to build up slowly within the limits of where I think they’re going to have a hard time explaining why I can’t do something.)

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?

I’m imagining your cubicle with a giant bouquet of sunflowers and strings of Christmas lights all crisscrossing one another around the cubicle walls, which is probably nothing like what it really looks like, but I fully support you taking your cubicle decorations all the way to the max, and then some.

What’s beautiful here? Asters. Big asters and little asters. Asters in white, and asters in pink, and purple, and blue. I find them everywhere I go walking in the woods and meadows, and they are so very cheerful.

We passed a field of SHORT sunflowers this afternoon. Fireman actually stopped the car for me to get a few photos! I makes me miss Zach a bit because he photographed TALL Sunflowers in fields the las two years.
