Full Use

on Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Drying our sheets out on the line is an affordable luxury.
The smell of sunshine stays on the sheets all week.

I dry my lemons when I make lemonade.
I use the lemon peels to make lemon ginger tea.
Only after they have steeped for five minutes to I send them to the compost bin. I strive for full use.

I am reading embroidery books.
I am gathering my threads and needles.
I am remembering my stitches.
I am gathering ideas.
I take many photographs every day.

I am living the artful life
with the birds today.
I am establishing a relationship with the
male Hummingbird.
I am working on stop action.
When his mate arrives I hope she
will pose for a few portraits.
