Any one with a conscience or a family can be afflicted with the malady of melodrama, so today I just want to sugar coat the moment with a little sweetness. Besides I'm craving a bit of chocolate, and I want to think of how I can fill my day with smooth and creamy tidbits.
I will call my sister who may be drowning in her own overload of melodrama, and we will have a nutty conversation about times when we were little and revel in the fact that her memories vary so much from mine. But we see that as a double treat of sweet because we now share two memories.
If I am in need of satisfying a craving, I'll go upstairs to my quilt room and sift, sort, pile, and organize my luscious stash of material. Delightful, rich, mesmerizing colors of fruity greens, yellows, reds, and oranges as well as deep chocolaty browns and nougat tans. The desire to create something will always help those endorphins.
If the sun is shining and it's not too hot or too windy, I'll visit another candy store outside in the soil. When the over-indulgent clematis needs cutting back, I will pull, tug and chew off the errant vines and transplant a milder, softer ground cover. Dig in the soil, delve in the soul.
Ah, I am satisfied!
