See you through











Two chickens, two children and me.
Workbooks and library books.
Maria biscuits and a blanket.
Bare, tanned feet, big and small.
Blue skies and a breeze; trees on the arroyo just beginning to change.
They both arrived on sunny September days just like this one.
I'm lucky to have them.
I'm lucky to have more sunny September days.
An old song loops in my head. I understand it better now:
For this is all a dream we dreamed, one afternoon long ago...

  8. Isn't it cool how you can have such wonderful things right in your own backyard? And what I love about you is that you appreciate each and every thing. I have an unscheduled weekend ahead of me and I love it.

  26. I loved this Jennifer. It just oozes happiness and contentment. Your little bears seem very close. And I love the chickens. We have had to re-home ours this summer. It's a long story involving a very horrid neighbour.
    Enjoy those gorgeous skies.
