Rest of the Day Off
I wish you all could experience this awesome PEI day. We had heavy showers before dawn and some light showers this morning and just before noon I trusted the day enough to start hanging clothes on the line. I've always said perfect summer weather is when it rains at night and the sun shines during the day. This is proof. The temperature is 26 degrees centigrade or 79 degrees American. Is that not perfect?
I forgot my camera at work yesterday and ever since have felt naked. I went to town as a passenger last night and wanted the camera so badly. I picked it up this afternoon but missed many photo ops in between. The photo above is of the bloom of a horse chestnut taken a week ago. I saw the same tree today and already tiny chestnuts are developing; but I didn't have my camera. Aren't they a beautiful bloom?
A friend brought me a huge bouquet of iris's at work yesterday for me to take home. They are absolutely gorgeous and smell wonderful too. There are purple, lavendery white , bright yellow and maroon ones and they're stunning. My daughter-in-law sent a photo of my grandson last week. He is smelling an iris that is almost as big as his head. Awesome!
You have to know what song I'll be playing don't you? The Goo Goo Dolls' big hit Iris comes to mind first for me. Did it for you? I've worked so, so hard on this day off as I have appointments in town tomorrow, so for the Rest of The Day Off (by Neil Finn), I'm awaiting company and am going to cook an awesome meal on a perfect PEI summer day.
