A Bit About This & That!

how are you?
today i feel the need to just chat a bit...
life is full of little opportunities,
like the time the sun was just shining perfectly
on this tiny spiderweb
despite its broken unevenness
it made a moment beautiful.
of course not all moments are beautiful are they?
mr m has had a heart infection over the past few weeks
fortunately after many tests
the most recent tell us he's on the mend
and his heart size is back to normal...
then mr m's dog became very unwell...
it turned out that she had a two cancers in her uterus.
a week and a half ago
she had a hysterectomy and the vet took out the aggressive cancer...
the size of a baseball!
she's on the mend
bouncing about like it never happened!
ms b is transforming our garden
she's truly a green thumbed girl
like her auntie jill and both grandmas.
she's planted this pot of sweet Williams
tool boxes full of pansies and renunculas
to bloom in spring.
lavender and mondo grass to withstand the summer heat
fuschias, hibiscus and frangipanis
now grace our garden as well.
what a treasure a good gardener is!
our tiny kai is now 3 months old!
it has sped by and he's growing up
faster than a weed...hehe!
check out this bright baby boy...

he's the apple of his grandma's eye.
how are things at your house?
we have plenty to be grateful for.
