Baby shower today reminded me of when Charles was born, so I thought this was appropriate. Words for Charles by Charles
I am trying to get up the energy to reproduce beautiful gardens again this summer. I’m tired and I don’t feel like doing it. There are so many ideas and promotions to this end-almost to bullying degrees. Yet my spirits and feet drag. Then I remember. There are many whose homes and lives have been charred to non-existence. Suddenly this puts gardening into a different perspective.
This year’s birthday card for Brian
I have heard that ‘you don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing.’ I guess this is why Brian never seems to age.
So far Brian’s birthday has been spent cleaning the gravel pit we call a backyard and picking up dog poo. Does it really get any better than this???!!!
Brian turns 55 today!!! The worst part about that….I’m older than he is(groan)
Our old stone farmhouse is getting new shingles today!
Ughhh. Ticks have emerged!!! I hope the birds are happy
Fighting off depression often seems impossible. I often wonder how other people do it
Vanessa turned 30 today!!! Impossible but true. HAPPY BIRTHDAY VANESSA!!!
Yesterday was an OMG sort of day. Ness and Charles were in an accident. No one was hurt. Two other vehicles smashed. Icy highway. White outs. When we arrived to collect them it was surreal. Like a scene staged for death. I want to scream with relief. Instead I shake with abundant ‘what if’s’.
Christmas was sneaky. It came and went in a blink of an eye
