Oh my! I really didn't intend to be away for so long. Is it just me or does time go by so much faster nowadays?
I snapped the above photo out in the hot sun yesterday...yes, we actually saw the sun!...of my coneflowers now blooming. This plant was new last year and really is doing well. All my flowers are doing great with all the rain we've had. Speaking of rain....
We went to Kansas City over the weekend to visit our son and encountered lots of rain, especially Sunday coming home. The detour sign I saw through the windshield, when we pulled over waiting for the heaviest rain to move through, was perfect for the thoughts running through my mind. Rain! Take a detour...go to California where you're really needed!
I recently read a news item that told how our area has had some form of precipitation every weekend, if you count Friday through Sunday a weekend, for the last 13 weeks!! And when it isn't raining, it is very hot and humid.
The bridgework is finished now and that means no more detours to take if I want to go to the lake and I went there as soon as I saw there might be a decent sunset Sunday evening when we got back home.
Our son has a birthday coming up soon. Happy Birthday, Brett!! This photo was taken a couple of years ago, but he still looks just the same of course.
I'll have to tell a cute story he told us when we saw him over the weekend. His girlfriend was previously married and has 2 small children. Her son, who is 4, was chattering away in the backseat while they were driving somewhere the other day. All of a sudden he said, "Brett, I know what you're getting for your birthday". Well, he was quickly hushed up by his mom and little sister and he went on chattering about something else when all of a sudden he said, "Brett, you know you just can't have too many watches". lol I can't wait to hear what he has to say when Brett gets his watch.
The kittens have had tummy upsets the last 2 days, especially today. I spent a good bit of time today holding them as they seemed to want to be close to me. They have moments where they are romping around like normal, so hopefully it will quickly pass. If not, we'll be visiting the vet.
I'm off to the Big Town for a little while today, but I'll be by to visit soon. I've missed everyone! Have a great day!
