Life in Quantity

There are veggies growing in the garden, limes ripening in the sunroom, birds nesting in the yard and jellies and their kin spawning in the sea.

It's my favorite time of year. Can't figure out how to get the laundry done or the dishes put away as you pretty much have to be indoors to complete either chore. Problems, problems.

This afternoon we spent some time down at the waterfront with some friends who live on a houseboat, sunshine and sea air arcing warmly onto their miniature, open deck.

We laid on our stomaches on the dock and watched a lion jelly pulse by, pried barnacles up to examine their parted, stony lips and then scooped up a mason jar full of an eddy of sea life. I had salt crusted on my fingers, flowers in my hair and a herd of happy little boys riding home together with the windows down all ruffled by the wild sea air. Good times.
