Double the joy

This fantastic flower just bloomed in our garden late yesterday. It’s the first time this bulb has been successful, but now we can’t remember what it’s called. Mama and I couldn’t wait to go see the wildness of this flower when we got up today—and then we found not one, but TWO! Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama…

Turning around disappointment

For weeks, we have been eagerly anticipating a seniors water aerobics class that Mama was all set to begin today. However, when we arrived, we were shocked to discover the facility had no swimming pool! We turned huge disappointment around by making friends with another woman who was looking for the same class, which apparently…

Celebrating beach bodies

And Day 1,263 in a row (here’s the first 366, & the following 365, & the third year of 365 good things)! 1 year ago today: Early infusion 2 years ago…

DIY Garden Arch complete

We were then able to plant the starters we grew from seeds. It feels great to have this one done, and Mama and I are…

Arch all lit up

Another migraine took me out yesterday, but late at night, I managed vertical long enough to see the fruits of my previous day’s labor. The solar lights on our garden arch got enough sun to illuminate. Yesterday’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was seeing our garden arch illuminated against the night sky! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please…

Garden arch redesigned

After months of planning and several redesigns along the way, I finally got an archway up in our garden this evening. It’s still a project-in-progress, but I am so pleased with the development. I had to disassemble the lovely wooden trellis arch I created a couple of weeks ago, as it wasn’t flexible enough and…

It finally broke…

The days-long heat wave finally broke this evening! Hooray! Refreshing honeydew melon mint popsicles saved us from overheating. Paisley spent much of the hot afternoon trying to keep cool passed out on the floor, but Mama and I had a wonderful time visiting with our friend Nicole. With temperatures dropping into bearable this evening, Mama…
