Summer Days, Drifting Away
I achieved nothing I had planned to achieve today but that's fine. I had the most wonderful day lazing in the garden with a book and chilled Viognier (er, yes) in the fabulous sunshine. This is so much not typical weather for April in England and I am sure I should be fretting and wailing about global warming etc but... oh. It was so great to stretch out and relax and just be. I swear I could see leaves and petals unfurling infront of me. I watched juvenile delinquent bees dipping in and out of petals, drunkenly weaving from too early flower to too early flower; I watched crows flying from trees to church tower, building their nests in the turret; I watched aeroplanes traces cloudy arcs in the otherwise cloudless sky. I dozed in the sun and I got my vitamin D from the best possible source.... and now I have purple sprouting broccoli for dinner. Still far, far too much wine, but a lovely and much needed relaxing day.
