slugs, clean, and drying off
posted by soe 12:45 am

It’s Thursday, so it’s time to reflect on three beautiful things from the past week:

1. Twice this week, I’ve brought slugs home in the strawberries from the garden. I don’t find the damage they do charming in the least (and we combat them in the garden with beer), but, in this case, their size works in their favor. Those who live amidst my strawberries are tiny silvery things, no longer than my pinkie fingernail and maybe twice as wide as a strawberry stem, with delicate antennae. Carefully, I lift them onto my finger and give them a ride outside to the ivy.

2. Returning home from an afternoon excursion to find a drying rack full of clean laundry.

3. After a bike ride on a hazy, hot, and humid night, changing into drier togs.

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