My Show and Tell is a day late.
(Keep scrolling down and you’ll see why I waited …)
When I saw the request this week was for something red, I was dismayed.
I have no red clothes, I thought (I’m so shallow). I have no red in my house, in my life.
Then I looked down.
I looked around me.
I ventured out into the garden …
I walked the dog up to the park …
Pasta sauce for dinner! (Getting bored yet?)
The next day I woke up.
Saturday: an important day chez Soup. There was a big red flag outside our house.
A real estate mag landed with a thud on the doorstep. Actually, a whole box of them! Ready to hand out to the crowds.
An hour later, there had been a few chewed nails, much held breath and one or two tears,
… but it was over.
Oh, the sweet relief!
