There are lots of fun things waiting for us at home; projects to finish; decorating of the upstairs bathroom (which I have been contemplating all winter), friends and family to reconnect with. Lots of good things. But on the other hand, it means leaving Brian and Gretchen, saying good-bye to our church here in Henderson, leaving this gorgeous weather.
Isn't life interesting? There is always good and bad mixed together and we need to learn to roll with whatever comes along, I guess.
So, fragments for this Friday.
Welcome to Miss Charlotte Rose Stringer who arrived a week ago today. Her arrival makes our friends, Bruce and Shelly, Grandma and Grandpa. Congratulations to all. We are anxious to see this little miss when we arrive home.
Good News: I finally finished my flower mini scrapbook. Of course, I now have tons more flower pictures, but for now, this will have to do.
These are lilacs on either side of our house.
The rhododendron in one of our front gardens.
My Frazier Memorial Garden.
Some beautiful desert flowers.
There are many more, but the library closes in 45 minutes and I must needs hurry.
My last Friday Fragment is about March Madness. We (Jim) are died in the wool Big East supporters. Now, I personally, have always had a real soft spot for Duke and Coach K., but this year, Coach opened his mouth and said some disparaging things about the Big East. Big mistake where Hippo Husband is concerned. SOOOO, last night found me rooting for Villanova. In all honesty and fairness, I really do believe Duke was outclassed by Villanova and the win was well deserved. So now, as of this writing, we have three Big East Teams in the Elite Eight, with the possibility of 5. I really doubt that Syracuse will make it (SOB), but stranger things have happened. I'm sure I'll have a new outlook by Monday.
Good luck to all of you and your teams.
