Around the backyard

pink roses

Around the backyard there are roses growing where they shouldn’t.

Around the backyard there is dying grass where our two new dogs are peeing and destroying the grass.

Around the backyard there is dog poop that needs to be picked up, especially in the sand pit.

Around the backyard there is evidence that children live here…squirt guns laid to rest, sand buckets with sand still inside, and small shoes that have been left outside over night once again.

Around the backyard there is a tire swing in its third summer.

Around the backyard there is a pile of fallen cottonwood branches that were toss during the last wind storm.

Around the backyard is a black lab barking, looking for someone to throw the ball.

Around the backyard there is a five-year-old filling a bucket with water to play in the sand pit.

Around the backyard my Missouri Primrose is in bloom.

Around the backyard the daylilies have buds. It will be a few more weeks before they show their glory.

Around the backyard, near Bailey’s grave, the chives are blooming and the bees are buzzing.

Around the backyard Thor has just brought me a stick to throw.

Around the backyard there are wild strawberries that have never bared fruit and clematis that surprises me every year when it blooms.

A little bit of this…a little bit of that.

I am obsessed with…

Angie’s Classic Kettle Corn. This stuff is soooo good. A little sweet, a little salty. All natural, gluten-free, kosher, whole wheat, 4 simple ingredients, zero additives, and 150 calories per serving…yum!

Working on…

Scraping the peeling paint on the trim of our house. Yikes! This photo makes it look worse than I thought it was. I can stand it no longer! I got a large window, garage door trim and garage back door scraped today. Tomorrow I will prime and paint this area. Feels good to get the next project started, but I always can’t wait until I am finished.

Saying goodbye…

…to my mother-in-law’s house. After living in the house for 33 years she is embarking on a new journey at a retirement community. These blooms are in her yard.

Reminding Myself to Breathe.

Sometimes I will catch myself holding my breath. I will be thinking about something heavy or someone who is now gone. And I notice it.

I am holding my breath.

Then, I have to remind myself to breathe.

Spring 2011

Just Breathe…
