Where the sun is not blocked by the front of the house, the yard is spotlighted in a glorious light and the light wind commands motion from the trees and anything that can sway and make noise like the wind chimes.
I’ve noticed a number of trees around the yard have some dying ends which I’ve included in the photos. Yesterday, Mama Kay noticed her one mum was beginning to bud and open up. We’ve also had quite a high number of birds dropping dead. I’ve discovered two in my driveway, one of which was flying across the front yard as I was mowing and simply dropped a few feet to the pavement, dead.
The dogs are all content and relaxing about the deck after having already completed their tour of duty (or, dooty) around the backyard.
Three Mary Lincoln day lilies are spending this day in the front of The Haasienda.
In about two hours, my other bonus sister, Jenny, will pick me up and we will aim toward Lebanon, Ohio to eat at The Golden Lamb. I loved going to Lebanon all the time to stroll the city blocks, taking in the architecture and overall Americana tastes of Turn of the Century towns. I loved stopping to chat with a group of men who often sat outside one business, chatting about the weather, the days gone by, and local news. For many years, I didn’t realize that one of the gentlemen was none other than Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.
It’s 8:35 AM, and I will need to begin the process of getting ready. It does take a bit longer to physically move my body but I have the time so I am not bellyaching.
On to the day and I can guarantee it will be made into a great day!
