I spent the bulk of last week in SoCal, settling my dad back in his home. Long story, and we're not at the end. We're trying Home Instead, which appears to be an answer to prayer. If only he would stay home to let them in to help around the house. (He tends to go AWOL.) I spent hours clearing out cake mixes from 1999, and tons of bug habitat. I left it just begun, and am hopeful that they will be allowed in today, to finish the job. ugh.
The yard is not what I remember.
While there, I spotted a needlepoint "tapestry" that I made for my mom in the early 70's. I wrote the essay when I was in 7th grade. She loved it so much, I ended up doing the needlepoint during the hours (and hours and hours) that I spent babysitting while in high school.
February's goal has been met. I got my entries submitted to Best of the Valley 2017 by yesterday's deadline. whew!!
And I guess that's it for now...
