On Friday we went to our neighborhood playground. I was really hoping there would be some kids there for Lucy to play with, but we were out of luck. There were three older boys and later a mom brought her crawling son. Lucy still wanted to swing next to them. But we didn’t have as much interaction as we hoped.
Our playground has a couple of play equipment, a couple of swing sets and a large paved basketball court that is more like a place to abandon riding toys. For whatever reason, several of the toys were turned upside. Perhaps another parent turned them over to drain the recent rain.
I turned over the plastic cars and a sand table. I really wanted to read my book and write in my journal while she played. Then I decided that maybe Lucy would find the tree moss appealing. I think I was more intrigued than she was. So I lined the sticks up on the abandoned sand table and took a few shots.
Spring of 2011 this would have been a treasure trove for me! I was totally craving any way I could bring the outdoors into my life. Now I feel like I’m living in the woods, which I love. I left the little limbs, despite the range of lecithin. So beautiful. Maybe I’ll know what to do with them once I set my studio up. I’m hoping to make a game plan this week.
