A lovely little tea rose in a flower bed by the pool today...the little water droplets on it reminded me of the Jan van Os painting at the Speed. BTW, I have discovered that JVO painted a few paintings entitled Still Life with Fruit and Flowers, not just the one at the Speed. All very beautiful, but the one at the Speed is exceptionally beautiful.
I am, today, cooking my carrot souffle dish for another funeral...4 funerals and 1 wedding in the past month: I am beginning to think it is not safe to know us, well, on the funeral part, the wedding part is okay. This is all very emotionally draining...it would be lovely to just swim the afternoon away, part of it anyway. Might need to ink that in for later.
I will post some swim news tonight with maybe a photo or two from the fancy pants camp in Arizona as Matt has both his iPhone and a digital with him. Have a great day...go out and do something special for someone for no apparent reason whatsoever...they will feel good, and so will you. As always, miss you all...wish you were here.
