Lately all my morning rituals have been slightly off, with happy disturbances and interruptions to the routine. My sons wedding, the farmers market opened, an unexpected flea market outing, bridal showers, baby showers and a trip to my moms. Whewww! Yup, the weather is warmin’ up and things are happenin’ again!
I can always count on Sparky to want exactly the same thing each and every morning though. He keeps it simple and makes its easy on me. He just wants to go out every morning and when he comes back in he heads straight to his feed bowls and after all that exertion he flops down on the couch for his morning nap.
The ducks are busy tending to their babies. We have two duck couples down by the creek, one couple has 6 babies and the other couple has 8, that’s a lot of baby duckies. I think the daddy ducks are starting to trust me a bit more. I went down there with stale bread, mamma and her babies came over to have a tasty treat while daddy stayed back with a discerning stare, eventually he gave me the go ahead and swam over to welcome me.
It’s time for me to get back into my own routine with the cooking, cleaning, chauffeuring, ironing, mopping, vacuuming, grocery shopping, toilet scrubbing, picker upper of discarded items, and any other dirty job nobody else wants to do. My respite from all of that is the tiny bit of gardening I get to do now that’s its warmer. I so badly wish I could have a garden to lose my thoughts in, to tend over and watch with pride and accomplishment as those little miracles grow into tasty deliciousness. Plus I kinda like playing in the dirt!
Happy Monday friends!
