It was a gloriously sunshiny day when my friend Jenny came out to visit me last weekend. The whole world seemed to come out of hibernation, birds singing madly, fish flopping in the creek, and folks emerging from their heated homes to bask in the first real spring day of the year.
Jenny thrilled me to pieces by bringing the most gorgeous strawberries, plump, red and perfectly ripe.
On such a scrumptious day we HAD to go for a walk, more of an amble really, stopping often to sniff blossoms and lift our faces to the sun. I’ll tell you more about that tomorrow.
When we got back we were thirsty, ravenous and ready for a rest, so we filled blue bowls with yogurt and fruit, gathered up blankets, and went out to the creek bank for a strawberry picnic.
We stretched out on our blankets and snoozed happily, rousing ourselves now and then to try and identify various birds or catch a glimpse of the big ol’ fish that kept splashing about in the water. The sun blazed down but lovely cool breezes from the creek kept us from roasting.
It was the best of days filled with great talks and peals of laughter, luscious berries, and that wonderful, healing sunshine we’ve missed so much this winter.
What is your ideal simple day?
