sun protection, calvary, and fresh from the garden
posted by soe 5:06 pm

Today is a beautiful, sunshiny day with temperatures in the mid-80s and low humidity. Honestly, I’d keep checking both the calendar and an atlas if there weren’t a heat wave bearing down on us next week. Soak it up while you can, folks!

Here are three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Early in the week, it is hot and bright. A young woman walks past the building with a parasol trimmed in lace.

2. The sudden and breathtaking (in the bad sense of the term) amount of work heaped on me in the last two weeks lifts somewhat with the announcement of my boss that she’s going to start working part time in her return from maternity leave and the postponement of an impending deadline, which she says she’ll take off my hands. Work is still busy, but treading water at least now seems possible.

3. Our dinner features both basil and tomatoes from our garden. They are, of course, delicious.

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