Here is a glimpse into mine on this fine Palm Sunday on the 1st of April 2012!
Louis Dean and I spent the whole beautiful day pretty much in our front yard!
I love this shadow shot!
We mowed and weeded, hedged and edged!
Stopping often to admire the roses.
See the mint encroaching around the bushes?
Alas, I did NOT get around to pulling a bunch of it up!
NEXT week! I promise myself!
The climbing roses are blooming like crazy!
They bloomed last year - ONCE! At Easter.
Perhaps that's the way they do. I am not a TRUE gardener......
just a happen chance one.
Lots of flowers came back from last year.
I am done planting annuals.
This is a real habitat for birds!
They love the roses, the feeder, the honeysuckle........that bush was simply FULL of birds when I snapped this picture.
I dearly love my honeysuckle. It's been my favorite flower since I was a child.
I KNOW that it is considered a weed in some parts of the country......
but I love it anyway!
We gave all our plants a good watering at the end of the day.
That will hopefully hold them for a week.
The scar across the yard from the drain Louis Dean put in a couple of months ago is healing nicely. No more flooding problems in the den!
Louis Dean is eyeing some things that are ready to load for our trip to Houston in the morning.
While HE loaded I did a little yoga.......mainly 'corpse pose.'
A little tea and a bit of reading time was a good reward at the end of the day.
Louis Dean has already gone to bed. We have an early appointment with the Interstate in the morning. While I have enjoyed our week at home and we have accomplished SO much - I am still anxious to get back down to see Amber. She will be approaching her 22nd week on Thursday. So far so good. She is now on a blood pressure medicine - even though her blood pressure was NOT high! It is supposed to help relax her uterus and prevent contractions. This makes her a little woozy and light headed so I am happy we will be down there WITH her this week. Not sure how many more weeks she will be able to stay at home. The hospital possibility looms large every Thursday when she has her doctor appointment. They are taking it week by week. Can't plan too far these days!
Lucy seems to know we are going somewhere. Of course SHE goes with us. Maggie is oblivious. She will miss us, though!
I have filled several small wine glasses full of water and lined them up on the hearth in the den for her. She prefers to drink from a glass!
I love my little cat.....and my dog! I love my yard.....and my flowers.
I pretty much love my life and am grateful to God for all his blessings. I'm thankful to be able to go down and spend time with my daughter as she keeps those quads of hers baking in the oven!
This Holy week is a good time for me to stop......be still......meditate....and be thankful.
