My friend and neighbor, Becky, and I walk 4.5 miles as many mornings as possible on our country road and these coneflowers are blooming along the way. I worked hard scratching the soil and throwing out a pound of coneflower seed all over our property and have yet to see any sign of them. These grow in the rocky caliche beside the road and have never been tended to or cared for in any way. I'm sure there is a lesson here or an analogy of some sort, but since I have a million things to do this morning, I'll just leave that thought with you and let you put your own spin on it.
Roxanne and I are hitting the road in the morning - 5:30 (i WILL be ready) - and heading to Salado for a 3-day painting workshop. We signed up months ago and are excited to finally be on our way. We plan to return with new knowledge and skill! And maybe a treasure or two (Salado has great shops). Probably a funny story or...ten. Good food under our belts. Great memories........You know, all the things that come with a girl trip.
I hope your weekend is equally fun and full of goodness!
