Settling Back In

Having been away, I’m settling back in with favorite pursuits—
  • trying to root some sage
  • making grapefruit green tea
  • sweeping up fallen purple blossoms
  • washing pillowcases
  • roasting peppers (marinated in Tunisian olive oil)
  • admiring the clematis and cosmos
  • welcoming my new vintage bronze Ashanti antelope
  • going out to buy croissants and a new birdbath
  • wanting to make
