I did not cook gluten free pasta today. In fact, I did not cook at all today. Quite frankly, I have been quite exhausted lately, and I proclaimed a day of rest. My sister, Grace, endorsed me on my decision to take a day to nurture mind, body, and soul. It was rainy all morning, but by early afternoon, the sun was shining, and it turned out to be a lovely Florida spring day.
Wayne and I are enjoying the fruits of our labor from last weekend. Last Sunday, we planted flowers in pots, wild flower seeds, some small basil plants as well as sweet basil seeds. The flowers received a good soaking from mother nature, and they just looked so radiantly beautiful in the freshly washed sunshine. Here I am holding my dish of “naturally gluten free” fresh fruit (fresh papaya and raspberries, to be precise) in front of our daisies.
Below are snaps of our other flowers and our basil and wildflower seedlings. It is fun to go out on the patio each day and watch them grow inch by inch out of the soil.
It was good to tend the garden of my heart today. The day is closing and I do feel a deep sense of peace both physically and mentally.
Sometimes you just have to stop the cooking……………and smell the flowers!
