Cypress trees towering overhead. Harsh summer sunlight softened, transformed into a magical golden glow that bounces off the glassy surface of a creek and dances on the surrounding tree trunks.
Hours to float in cold, clear water under that lofty green bower, to talk and talk and talk with friends in a busy outdoor market... in a huge kitchen... on a stone terrace under the gaze of a herd of deer... and piled on a bed, flashing back to 6th grade slumber parties.
Is it wrong to be grateful I wasn't scheduled to work this weekend so that I didn't miss out on all of the above?
I hope you had a relaxing, magical weekend, too!
Here are a few other sweet! moments from my past week...
Monday: dinner with your husband and 1/3 of your kids; helping your baby girl find just the right swim suit; friends' prayers
Tuesday: morning chats with a mama duck and her duckling while your old puppy swims his laps; enough money in the bank to pay the bills; sitting on a porch swing, listening to the wind rustle the leaves; the full moon
Wednesday: living in a free country; a puppy lying across your feet, belly up for a rub; getting paid to listen to live music; listening to the rumblings of fireworks on the 4th of July
Thursday: logging two hours on your book; the blouse your puppy decides to destroy is one you don't like much anyway; a nibble on one of your Craig's List 'for sale' postings
Friday: standing under majestic cypress trees on the banks of a crystal clear creek; unique sculpture in the middle of nowhere; fawns; slumber parties, gabbing with girlfriends in your jammies, when you're 53
Saturday: Wimberley Market Days with crazy friends; finding a "new" Ziggy to give to your husband; floating in cold water on a hot summer day; live music and dancing
Sunday: waking to the aroma of bacon; a deer family photography shoot; coming home after a weekend away; the smell of rain
What were some of your sweet!s of the past week?
