What a great birthday weekend. Gardner E stopped by with some cool socks and graphite drawing pencils with my name ( well, the company's name) on them. So fun.
Rae whisked me away to Yew Dell Gardens for the morning Saturday. The weather was perfect and there was hardly anyone there.
I was really so surprised by many flowers and plants I am not familiar with. Ahem, and Handy Man and Rae gave me the funds to haul some home with me. Be still my heart.
I can't figure why my pictures no longer load in order, boo hiss. Anywho, this is in the fairy garden. These houses, oh my. They say if you find a career you love you never have to work another day in your life. Yeah, well I love teaching, but let me assure you it feels very much like work to me this year. But, if I could drive a straight nail and draw a straight line I think I could play in the woods creating these adorable fairy houses happily, all the live long day.
I wasn't reponsible for this Sunday dinner, so enjoyed a long soak this morning. I have also enjoyed going to church virtually with friends and family. This Sunday I got to hear Aunt SuZQ's man sing and read.
Aunt Tish rounded up our people and we had a big feast and big time this afternoon. Aunt Tish made all my favorite savories like caprese salad, pesto, and salsa. Rae brought Hershey Bar Cake and Jordan brought enough bread for everyone along with homemade kraut for me, wheeee. We had some other dishes as well, so lots of yummy choices.
He took it so seriously.
This Covid life has revolved around the garden and bugs and butterflies and fat bumblebees. These snake beans are just entertaining. I will miss this lush yard like never before when the first frost visits. Happy to have pictures to remember.
