A Good Day

11 Nov

There was no school today. A holiday. A hanging-out -with-grandson day. Starting with early morning sunshine and a fascinated 7-year old chasing prism colors around the kitchen. Little hands holding color. Holding rainbow. Fascinated with spectrum. With violet that I could hardly see. Holding in his hands. As though it were the most delicate thing he could imagine. prism

A quick trip for groceries.  Raucous laughter at the check out when I was quietly asked to look at my feet. And saw this. shoes

Then home for smoothies


and this.

The unveiling of a can wrapped with old damask, avocado, pennies–wrapped with twine and steamed for a bit.

    I can’t believe it…how you unwrapped that cloth from around its can and you get images that look like you, and only you, worked on them for weeks.

    Oh that cloth! It is so you already with nothing else. And… I just popped an avocado skin in the freezer last night. That is making me happy in anticipation.
