Rabbit, Greenhouse, and Community
I've been back home almost a full week and I cannot begin to tell you the happiness I feel. I don't remember always being a homebody but somehow along life's path I became one. I loved my family vacation and seeing more of the south but boy oh boy, I do love home.
While on a walk this week we spied (my husband and I) the little rabbit. Guess what? Frodo was off of his game, he didn't see it, smell it or notice the wee thing. Sometimes I think he is becoming an old man. I'm glad he's less obsessed with the hunting but he was cute when he did it.
We finally went to our favorite greenhouse and bought some flowers and vegetables to plant. We waited until after the trip so there would be less death in the garden, seedlings need tender loving vigilant care. This cat was snoozing in the herb section and he gave me the one eye glare-so sweet!
I'm back to walking the dirt road through the woods near my house, the edges are lined with wild rose bushes that are especially fragrant this year! Or I can smell them this year? Allergies play a funny role in smelling sometimes. I feel so lucky to walk, see, and inhale their heavenly scent.
On Wednesday, I rode with my newly retired friend down to the middle of the state to visit her parents at their retirement community AND go to their knitting group. Let me tell you, it was such fun to be the young one in the group :) I loved listening to their stories about the community, the rules, and the chit chat of their mutual friends. No matter what age we are, it seems we love to get together and enjoy fellowship and friendship.
The women were welcoming and I enjoyed seeing all of their knits. They do charity knitting and their projects are sent all over the world, impressive! We also made her parents so very happy with our visit. I have a feeling that we will be doing this day trip again.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
