Home Sweet Home
Why is it that just when it is time to go away, home seems sweeter than ever? I've spent days working on the yard, the house, watering and fertilizing all the plants, setting up sprinkler systems, cleaning out cupboards, fixing little things that need fixing. Our little nest is looking pretty great, and it is tempting to just sit under that back yard umbrella, with a cool drink and a good book, and relax deeply. Instead we are preparing to drive to Denver for Daniella's next art show, followed by the rest of the summer spent in Washington State, on Whidbey Island. I love going up there, and will love every minute of the time spent there. But just for today, I'm sure loving my Santa Cruz home, my dazzling nasturtiums and poppies, my bubbling red fountain, the sunny cool days when the coastal fog just hangs out in the bay and keeps the air fresh.
