Green glass bottles

bottleteal.jpgAll on a row in our kitchen countertop today gifts from our dinner guests last night. Ginger Beer. A good one too. I”m sure we’ve had this somewhere in the past but it’s been a while. Delicious. Gulped it down with dinner, too thirsty to notice any flavor, only to get the ginger kick, strong but not too sharp.

I liked the bottles too. Compared to the other tones in our kitchen, those of wood and steel, the glass had a vibrant hue. The way the bottles caught the light and glowed green. Silly me, I stuck them in the window sill just to enjoy the color. And as the sun set, they turned a shade of teal.

It was a day of enjoying little things, like light playing games with glass.
