I can't believe it's been so long since my last post.
The end of the school year always gets crazy,
so many year end meetings, award ceremonies,
end of church activities for the kids are
just a few of the commitments filling my calendar.
Last Thursday my son Jason turned 30
(not sure how this happened since I barely feel 30 myself)
That meant, baking a cake, planning a get together
and having company to celebrate.
Then this young man, my youngest son Alex,
made his Momma quite proud by
earning his third Academic Letter Award in high school.
This meant attending an award ceremony.
All wonderful reasons to celebrate...
but keeping me very busy!
Add to all of this year end book studies,
final meetings for High Schoolers at church,
etc, etc, etc...
So all of this brings me to a huge apology
for not posting and not visiting your blogs
as often as I like :(
I've been busy using my new
zoom lens, an anniversary gift from DH.
Our yard is full of birds nesting, enjoying
the feeders, bird baths and splashing in the pond.
My oleander trees are in full bloom!
They aren't winter hardy in this region
so I plant them in very large pots
and then winter them over indoors.
Some of my lupines,
my yellow tea roses
and orange climbing roses...
all doing quite well right now.
I hope this little visit to my yard
makes up for my absence.
Now I'm off to visit all of you!
Have a marvelous day, whatever you choose to do :)
