While Grayson was having his swimming lesson this morning, Abby and I watched a few bees hover over lavender flowers by the baby pool. They hummed along busily while piling yellow nectar on their knees. They all looked like small roller derby racers with knee pads. It was amazing. It was also pretty insane to see where they had to store their groceries. Makes me feel extremely spoiled that I get a nice cart on wheels to schlep my wares to and from the car. Imagine how many fewer (how much less? how fewer? I'm no longer a student of the English language and it shows) calories we would all consume if we had to pack our soup cans and fruit cups on our hip flexors in order to get them home. I will remember that today when I have a hard time leaving the cookie dough in the store. Would I really want this if I had to wear it home?
Sadly, I'd probably still opt for cookie dough over soup cans.
