I did something unusual today. For me, anyway. In a moment of self-indulgence, I went out to the swing in the yard, set between two trees, its frame half-covered with wisteria, and sat. Just sat. Bare feet swinging in gentle arcs, I enjoyed the shade, on this 93 degree Thursday.

When the guilt of just sitting was too much to squelch, I headed back inside, but not before noticing a tiny arm lying nearby. I had to smile at the contradiction it implied: I threw away the fairy figurine it used to be attached to, but kept the arm itself.

So I picked it up, and carried it to one of the big bowls of flowers, and gave it a new home:

Another sight that made me smile: our little Ceili finding her own way to stay cool, by lying on the grass in the shade, with her chin resting on a concrete step:

Oh my gosh miz anitra, you're cracking me up with that gal burried in the dirt like that. She's trying to claw her way out. And don't you just hate that we can't even enjoy a simple few moments of peace and solitude without feeling guilty. Is this a condition that begins with OCD or what? HELP
