The sun is shining ... begging me to come outside and spend a wee while.
So I justified my little sojourn into the sunshine by pretending I was doing a spot of gardening.
Hubby planted some carrots a while back.
Today, I noticed how their plump juicy bodies were peeking up from the dirt. Too big to be contained within the soil for a moment longer.
I began to experience delicious visions of carrot soup, carrot sticks in dip, creamy coleslaw, carrot cakes with cream cheese icing ... or what the heck I could just chomp straight in ... Bugs Bunny style.
So I knelt down in the warm earth ... my fingers reaching for that glorious orange jewel ... pulling it free from the soil that had lovingly nursed it into maturity.
Houston ... we have a problem!
