Nice weather, family is all together, lots of great food, and Joyce Carol’s old Christmas Cactus decided to bloom. Despite the madness engulfing our world, we take all of this as a good omen for brighter days ahead. Hope all of you are enjoying the day.
My Beloved and I used to walk a lot. She can’t do that these days but I’ve been trying to walk a mile a day. Today our son and his 13-year-old daughter joined me. Still amazes me that we all live here. Despite the madness that seems to have enveloped the world, it is the simplest of things that bring so much joy. Be happy, my friends.
I snapped this photo eight years ago when that little boy turned 10. Today he’s 18. On the day he officially comes of age, his paternal grandparents celebrate the 48th anniversary of their first meeting, a Crab Louie dinner. We still have one of the crab claws. It’s all amazing to me.
We celebrated our youngest grandchild today. Next month, our oldest turns 18. I’m amazed by it all. Be happy, people!
Today is President’s Day in the U.S. That is the traditional start of the gardening season here on the Orchard Compound, though with the greenhouse we pretty much grow year round. But today we started broccoli, marigolds, peas, onions, spinach, radishes. Here’s to a healthy season.
