And at the bottom, I've got almost two rows of bricks in. I know that it's a long way from a finish, but I am doing the happy dance!!
The heat finally subsided this past week. I got really, really, REALLY tired of the 100 degree afternoons. My geraniums are loving the cooler weather.
Here is a planter with a few agave. Hiding in the corner, I saw a teeny, tiny pine tree. I don't have pines on my property, but the neighbors have a really big one right over the fence. I guess it decided to give me a gift. LOL
I have a wonderful moment to share...
Background...my father has not spoken to me for over six months and has not said my name for a YEAR. Every few weeks I might get a nod, but not much of anything else. So last Sunday, I was getting Dad ready for lunch. I am a constant chatterer, if for nothing else, just to fill the silence. As I was setting up his soup, he looks at me, makes eye contact, and says..."What are you doing, Angela?" For one quick moment, Dad was back. He didn't say anything else the rest of the day, but it made me wonder how much he really hears, but just can't form the words to talk. I will take it, no matter how fleeting.
It will be a quiet day here at the rancho. Husband and stepson are going on a motorcycle ride, so it will be just me and Dad. I need to take George to the vet this morning for his shots and annual heart worm test, but then I will be free for the day!!
I've finished my extra, extra creamer with coffee (LOL), so off to the get some morning stuff done. I hope that each of you have a special weekend filled with love and fun. Be kind to one another.
