The Red Bud tree is broken in the middle and looks very sad. That happened when it snowed. The snow was very destructive and I am now losing 2 of my evergreens. The wild rose bushes fared well and I am happy to report that not a weed was damaged! The bind weed is in full bloom and has leaves of record size. (Sarcasm in case you do not recognize it!)
Patty and Bill were here for a week and Bill got a lot of my chores done. He moved the books in the garage as well as the boxes. We treated the stumps and he cut the broken limbs and drug them out back to the burn pile. He took over "goose duty" thus freeing me up to watch Jeopardy! He mashed all my aluminum cans and we took them to the recycle. My car was full and we split $12.00. May not seem like much but it is $12.00 more then we had. His thumb is healed and they are going to try to lengthen his tendons this next week and hopefully it will be back to work for Willy! Hats off for a job well done.
My daughters, Patty and Dona, along with my niece, Michelle attended my High Tea at the church the day before mothers day. That was a rousing success, but I see a few flaws I need to iron out before the next one! Then on Mother's Day they fixed me a wonderful lunch on the grill. Bret and Amanda and the baby showed up to eat. Pork steak and sirloin were on the menu along with asparagus fresh from the oven, baked potatoes, garlic toast, angel food cake and on and on! Thank you children!
So that about winds up my week. Oh, crap! There was that trip to the dentist. Did I ever tell you how much I like having some one's fingers in my mouth?
Last night I was home all alone and the solitude was different. Makes me wonder if I really want to spend my waning days alone? The solitude was broken by the sheriff cars in the drive way, but that is another story.
For now, I am pulling on yesterday's jeans and the ragged tennis shoes and I am off to attempt to till the garden so I can replant. Oh, but first I have to find some breakfast.
