We live a short distance from a local iris farm which is gearing up for its annual open house. We drive past the fields of flowers several times a day on the way to school or town and Sugar Plum Fairy always asks to go there...especially at this time of year when they are in full bloom. I kept putting her off last week because I was busy with party planning and the like. Yesterday was the day. The laundry was not going to take offense at not being attended to so we grabbed the camera and set out. She was thrilled! She pointed out her favorites and I showed her mine. We talked about their names and how glad we were to live so close to something so pretty. What a wonderful way to start the week!
And guess what? The laundry wasn't offended one little bit...it waited patiently for my return...although I think it multiplied in my absence!
