Just three weeks ago I took a photo of a Magnolia flower in bloom near the door to George Washington's home at Mt. Vernon. Today I crept into a flower bed at a restaurant to take this photo of a similar bloom. I think I need one of these flowering trees in our farm garden, don't you?
We had our 2 oldest grandsons for a sleepover last night, then joined my best friend from 7th grade, Shirley and her husband John for lunch. Our son Shawn and his wife Beth joined us too. We had a great time reminiscing of things over the 50 years of our friendship. Shirley came to spend the summer with Dayle and I after we were first married when we lived in Milton, Louisiana. We lived on a bayou, the Vermillion River, and she recalled today that she checked her bed for Water Moccasin snakes before she went to bed. It's funny what we remember from so long ago. They have just moved from Seattle to the Portland area and are looking for a home to buy. I'm so glad to have her closer!My daughter recently posted this photo of Jenna on Facebook, my first grandchild. She reports that she has a nice light tan. They joined a swim club, there in Ohio, 2000 miles away from us.. they're enjoying it.
I saw this photo of my youngest granddaughter, Paige, on Facebook today. It kind of breaks my heart to see how much older she looks.. I haven't seen them for 10 months and it is quite literally is killing me. I have emailed my daughter to see if she'd like to bring them for a visit.. but if not, I need to get a visit to them planned. I know the rest of the family would like to see them, too.
I think I need to crochet now. Thanks for visiting.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
