Summer keeps showing off. Every day there are more blooms in the garden, a few more weeds and fullness. Full flower beds are so rich, so happy. Watering is easy and fresh. I love the feel of water coming out of the hose but I don't like how heavy the hose is or how fussy it is to coil it up nicely when I'm done watering. Oh, I don't like getting dirty.
I read about robins because so many of them are visiting our lawn. They like a wide space to check for worms and our grass doesn't have a lot of trees, so now I know why they swoop in and hop around. I've seen so many baby robins - all spotty and inexperienced. Next purchase: a bird bath. They look around for birdbaths, too.
So, I have some planting to do so I can put the fairy bench out by the fairy door, but I'm still kind of tired from my "week as a mom" and yesterday I sat on the sofa and watched "Hazel" for a few hours. "Hazel" was a 1960's sitcom about a maid and the family she works for. She's so funny. She serves them, bosses them all around, and ends up out shining the lawyer father over and over again. It's ironic. She's uniformed and busy cooking, cleaning, fussing after the family of three and in the meantime she is an excellent bowler, a good football kicker, a nurse because she went to night school, and she's able to poke fun at her "I'm an important man" boss. Maybe you should order it from Netflix. You'd laugh. I watched it every day when Brad was a baby. It was rerunning then. Just to remind you, I was only three years old in 1961! When I finish all the episodes, I'm going to watch "My Three Sons" because I love Fred MacMurray.
Every house in our neighborhood had a little flag and this morning they are all gone. The neighborhood Fourth of July organizers reuse them. They really looked so festive even though it rained and rained on the fourth. Gorgeous.
I'm off for a walk with a friend this morning, but I leave you with cherries. They are popping out at Kelli's house and at Reve's house. I picked one as I was coming home from a walk yesterday. I placed it in our grass so a robin could see it and have a mouthful of sweetness.
I'm still a bit muddled, but I'm thinking my head will clear. After my walk and coffee with my friend Ronda, I must stop by Kelli's and see the girls. I miss them. Thank you so much for reading today. Smile. Smile. Smile.
