Keeping My Fingers Crossed
On the drive to church this morning I made a few observations....1) there seems to be an influx of houses for sale. My guess is homeowners were waiting until the housing market regained an uptick before downsizing or upsizing, or moving to a retirement area. There are 3 houses on our street that are "for sale", one of them happens to be right next door. Since I have lived in our home for 38 years, we have had several different families living next door. Some with small children, some without, some with dogs, some without. It remains to be seen who will choose next door as their new dwelling. Keeping my fingers crossed they will be "neighborly".
The 2nd observation is how quickly nature changes. Three weeks ago the crab apples still had blossoms, 2 weeks ago the tulips were fading, last week the iris's were in bloom, today the rose bushes are enveloped with blossoms. Time passes way too quickly for me. And it is evidenced in the very nature around me.
I hope your weekend was wonderful. Today was delicious beginning with church this morning, breakfast with a couple of girlfriends, and worked in the garden all afternoon. Dug up a large hosta and transplanted it, planted 7 new perennials in the garden left empty by the bee balm that did not return this year....still a mystery to me. Dug up and replanted all the "tiny" bee balm in one spot, and dug up the black-eyed susans that had meandered to different parts of the garden and planted them in one spot. Wow, I wonder if those muscles that I don't use very often are going to shout at me tomorrow. Now I need to shower to wash away the bug spray on my body and the dirt under my fingernails.
Tomorrow a whole group of girls from my 2nd Wednesday of the month bookclub are meeting at the movie theater to see "Me Before You". I just hope somebody brings a box of kleenex because I think this may be a make-up remover kinda movie. I'll let you know.
