Well, my home has been in a bit of chaos. Some of the floors and boards had to be replaced recently due to water damage from a flood. Then, the day after the new floor boards went in, we had a big crawfish boil here that has been planned for months, and the sink is still piled high with dishes that are on my to-do list for tonight. To keep from getting too overwhelmed by the comings and goings and messes, I cleared off my bedside table, picked some fresh mint and Confederate jasmine, and but them in a bouquet next to my bed. Even though it’s a bit of a mess in there still after everything had to be pulled out from the closet, it smells like the garden when I open the door.
