Thirsty little Buttercup
Caught the dew and drank it up,
Said cool water was so good,
She didn't seem to care for food.
Today was a good day. My knee was hardly hurting at all and I felt, I don't know, I just felt happy. Maybe it was because I took the lilacs to work and could smell their lovely scent all day. Maybe it was because everyone who came into the office commented on the beautiful flowers. Maybe it just seemed like everything ran smoothly today. Or maybe it was because I opened up my e-mail at work this morning and saw all the comments from yesterday's lilac post. Reading your comments made me smile. It's a good feeling to have people thanking me for bringing back a treasured memory. A memory that's triggered by either the scent or sight of a flower. I loved reading your stories and I think it's what hepled make me feel good all day. I've decided that one of the best parts about having a blog might be the comment section.
Another good thing that happened today is that I saw my son who lives in a college town nearby. I haven't seen him much lately, and there's some things going on that get me down when I think about them, but I decided to just drive and see him (I texted him first to warn him) and I think we were both really glad, in the end, that I did. I love my two sons so much. And to see one of them suffer is too much to bear. So, let's not think of it. Suffice it to say that I'm so glad to have spent some time with him. As was he.
My other son called while I was driving home to tell me that the owner of the architecture firm where he's employed is flying everyone in the office out to the West Coast for 3 days in June. They're celebrating the opening of one of their buildings. Wow! I'm really glad for him.
When I got home, I took the super pup for a walk and I picked some buttercups before it got too dark. This dog is so used to coming home now and getting hosed off, that he immediately goes to the hose and waits there for me. Then he stands still and lets me clean him up! He still smells like swamp-rot just a little bit so I smoked some pot in the living room and that really helped to get rid of the stink.
Not really. But I had you going there for a minute, didn't I? I love doing that to you. You know, it's just fun.
Buttercups are fun, too. I remember playing with them when I was very young. We'd make little crowns of them, and do the butter test under my friends' chins. Good memories. Hope you all had a good day, too.
