These past few days, I’ve had way too much happening… and somehow, I got sick. That said… I am just so very grateful. Grateful for the fantastic group of guys who have been painting on/ fixing up our house. Grateful for the gentleman who answered my ad and has been removing the mountain of yard waste from our yard. Grateful to my hubby and daughter who have been taking care of me (and my mom)…. for my son who is doing better….. for my pup who has stayed by my side... It’s just been amazing.

As a bonus…. I was able to walk briefly with the pup around the yard today. And even though we had left our gardens to go fallow this year…. we have an incredible bounty of herbs and wild edibles that have cropped up. We even have some cherry tomatoes that suddenly appeared… from who knows where… photos to come.
