Today is my birthday. I didn’t have a wish list. I didn’t have anyplace I wanted to go. I didn’t have anyone I even wanted to see (Today, anyway. I do have plans this weekend.). I had the day off from work, and I stayed home. I spent time outside in my little garden, just enjoying life.
Why don’t more people take the time to slow down, instead of chasing whatever they see on social media or some hazy idea of what life likes like—instead of making the time to just breathe?
I thought this was through blooming after the tiny blue flowers passed, but it had this sunny surprise today.
Cute birthday gift from two of my coworkers.
And one of my squash plants is finally twining up the pole on its own.
