First, I want to tell you, before I move on to another "header"..that Lilly, my dear blogger friend in Canada, sent me those adorable little items in my header..the tiny tools, butterfly net and aren't those itty bitty gardening gloves just adorable? Thank you, Lilly!
I LOVE Summer, even if it is miserably hot!
Two Sundays ago, we were invited to my daughter's home for a seafood dinner and that same day we were hit by the mother of all California storms! Bad! Thunder, lightening, branches flying and nearly hitting our car as we headed up the hill to daughter Erin's home. We had slowed to nearly a stop and came to a complete stop a couple of times.
I called to let them know we were on our way, but slowly..and needless to say, my family became anxious. I mean we are rather older folks, to put it mildly. :)
Homemade ice cream and cake for dessert! Even listening to the ice cream maker hum was a Summertime sound!
When we arrived we found my son in law all wet, waiting out front with two umbrella's for us.
Inside were two wet women who had been waiting for us until son in law discovered them and sent them back to their cooking and took up the wait.
Ever had your heart swell with love and gratefulness for the blessings that we are fortunate enough to have? That's how I felt seeing Jimmy waiting for us with the wind and rain soaking him. Hugging those wet people....was almost too much for me and it was hard not to cry!
I am one lucky woman!
