fresh start with open windows

Don't think I slept a wink last night. Fitful sleep; tummy hurting. But in an effort to channel some Pollyanna and start the week fresh, I started the day slicing apples, hanging laundry, smelling citrus blossoms, tucking fresh sheets on and under my little bed, sipping sweetened black tea with the windows open and taking a peek at my exploding epazote in the garden beds outside. Before returning to a mammoth USDA grant editing sesh, I transplanted one tomato plant who was looking a little peaky. I gave him a drink and now he looks even worse! My thumb is brown, but I'm hoping his new comfy home (pillowed with kickass compost) will help the little guy bounce back.
