Such a tragic day.
I love our front porch and even when it's cold outside I still enjoy morning coffee out here and watching the birds at the feeders and watching them drink fresh water from the running fountain.
PH faithfully fills it every single morning when he gets his newspaper.
I removed my usual container, found a pretty red Christmas bucket, filled it with water and fresh bows from trimmed Christmas tree's. The lot where I bought my tree is happy to have me haul the greenery away. I overloaded it and I love the look. (saved some more in the back fountain to do a refill if these start to fade.)
*The brown frame on our windows and garage are going to be painted red..SOON!
Not to much, just a touch. I added fresh greenery to my baskets. They will stay watered along with my plants.
Ok..just a touch more..
The front window where Mele loves to lay and watch the birdies! (I must catch a picture of her there.)
The birdies watering hole.
No, really! Go ahead, have a seat! It's nice!
Sometimes when it's so hot in the summer, people will take a little break when delivering flyers...I don't mind.
Oh..and a neighborhood cat..well, she likes to nap here. ..no, I don't mind. Honest. But it drives Mele nuts!!
One day when my family is all united again for Christmas, I have promised myself these tree's will be lit up. It's why I wanted them planted in the first place and they are growing so fast. Our poor lawn was just fed and reseeded..looks sad, doesn't it. Sandy wants to come out in Spring. I want her to see them...
4:31 a.m. Today is the day I lost Patrick exactly 15 years ago. Sometimes it seems like yesterday.
I haven't been to bed, just too much on my mind. I haven't done this for awhile. Just one of those nights when my mind refuses to let go of what's happening. There are no answers sometimes.
Love to all,
