Sunday are for…
It’s Sunday and I am rinsing all the roving that was dyed yesterday and doing some cleaning because my middle child, my daughter Rabia is coming for a visit. So excited. She’s the one that is teaching and living in Kyrgystan so I have not seen for since last last July. She will be here for the rest of the month so I have been trying to get as much done as possible so we can spend a lot of time playing!
It’s quite a stunning day here and mostly quiet except for the ravens whose babies are fledgling so every once in awhile there is the raven parent cheering section which is very very loud! we also have a barred owl fledgling whose parents are not putting up quite ruckus that the ravens are. Life in the woods.
I also have baby bunnies everywhere and quite a few baby squirrels. I guess it’s just that time of year but it seriously seems to be a lot more of them than usual.
I have been trying to use Sundays create space for inspiration. I get inspiration from many places and in varied ways all of which require me to be present and open and not occupied so space. Sometimes that looks like a walk or gardening or reading or even doing the dishes. I find you never know when and where a spark is going to fire up. Today it was picking up my CSA for the week which had this beauty in it.
A tiny little head of purple cauliflower. So pretty!! So I got out my camera and spent some time with this little gem before I add it to my dinner salad.
Crazy cool right?
It’s a tiny head of cauliflower and look at that color and patterning… so pretty. Taking the time today to immerse myself in photographing this stunning little gem gave me such a sense of joy and peace.
I sent one of the pics to a friend who I thought would appreciate it. She’s somone who knows me very well.~ she asked me how I was going to cook it. I told her I wasn’t, that I was going to break it into tiny florets and put it in a salad. She laughed and I was like what’s so funny? She said I know why. You want to be able to absorb that purple don’t you?!! LOL
Why yes, I do. It will also make a stunning salad don’t you think?!
It truly is the little things, especially on a Sunday and especially now.
Hope you are having a good day.
Thanks for listening!!
