Hello, carnation

What do you do when you come home from work, on a day when the sun is behind clouds and it has just rained and little droplets cling to blades of grass and pose prettily on the flowers and the light is all soft and gray and mellow and twilight is just beginning and there is no cooking to be done because its leftovers day and Chip is happily playing in his bath and BigGeek is taking a catnap on the couch? What do you do indeed? Thank the powers-that-be for a golden opportunity and then sneak out barefooted with your camera.
