To be worn while gardening
A mysterious package arrived a day or so ago. It was from burlington NC and I knew I had not ordered anything. I opened it up and it was a present from my dear buddy Annie. She sent me a pair of the most outrageous blazing rhinestone earrings and a bottle of wine. The note on the earrings said - to be worn while gardening. The next morning I got up and put on my grubby jeans, tom's worn out paint spattered shirt AND my earrings. It was a STUNNING ensemble .. all i needed were gold wellies with sparkles on them and a pair of bunny ears. I went out to weed and water . The earrings made rainbows every time the sun hit them. I was literally surrounded by rainbows that bounced off every surface. My friend Brad arrived with his girlfriend to take a shower. I tossed my head and he was "blinded by the light". "Oh my god birdie, what are those things? If Tom could see you now - They go so well with his shirt" We sat in the driveway in the early morning laughing. It felt good.
