I had the house to myself last night, after finally getting Aliyah out of the pool and peacefully into bed. It was a long, fulfilling day, the kind that drains you, but leaves you with a smile on your face... and a few messes in the house. I decided to leave the messes, take a shower and relax. Usually I make the opposite decision when the house is "empty," running around cleaning everything that didn't get cleaned, picked up, washed or put away during the course of a few busy days.
But, what the heck. That stuff can wait, right?
Instead I nuzzled up to some flowers. Pretty, serene, happy flowers.
And all was right with the world.
Good thing I don't have a macro lens yet, or I'd probably be making out with it right now.
