Happy birthday Dad! – Yesterday was my dad’s birthday. He would have been well over 100 years old. I always envied his summer birthday. Mine is in January when no one wants to celebrate! I drank a toast to him and celebrated his life. Wish I would have had more time with him.
A change – After a few weeks of insane heat, there is a coolness in the air. I can feel it when I walk in the morning. Maybe it’s also changing daylight but I can tell we only have a few more weeks of summer. This week we will have perfect weather except for a cool rainy day today. I want to be in the moment all the time!
Bye-bye reunion – After being hopeful for far longer than I should have, I have accepted that our family reunion will not happen this year. Too many health-challenged people to worry about. I’ll miss it as some relatives I only see at this once-a-year celebration.
A covid-19 lesson – I don’t need as much clothing. I may get tired of what I have but I have no need to shop for more. Shopping was therapy for me. Now I’m in need of therapy!
The last year – There is a lot of outside work at my home. We have shrub borders which require weeding and pruning. Then there’s the garden and the pond. My energy and interest level is moving from in-ground gardens to pots. Simple pots. Easy peasy pots. I decided to dismantle the garden and revert it back to grass. It’s a passage and for me a big deal. There’s a time for everything and that time has passed.
So how was your week?
