Caleb, our 4 year old grandson came bursting in the door yesterday saying "Gwampa, Gwama! Come quick and see!" His mom had given him a long wand of bubbles to make and he was very very excited! He whirled around in abandon making big huge bubbles!Around and around he turned, making pretty, iridescent orbs floating through the air.
I adore this child.. he's so happy and fun to be around.
He showed me that when the bubble liquid was gone, the container became a light saber. :-) Our poor yard is all dried up from a long warm summer. But it rained all last night, so it should begin to green up a bit.
Hayden arrives home from kindergarten at 3:40ish - his mom, dad, brother, grandpa and I are there waiting for him. What a big boy!
I love this snap of him waving to his bus driver.
Then I walked across the road to get a few shots of the flower gardens there grown by Laotian families for farmer's markets.
The image below reminds me of an impressionist painting.
A big stem of my 4th of July roses are giving me an end-of-the-season performance. :-)
And I can't get over how much enjoyment I've gotten from this Lantana plant! You can bet that I will get one every summer for the rest of my life.My progress on Caleb's blanket. I know a lot of bloggers don't show their projects until they're done.. but not me! You have to suffer through it for weeks and months.. lol!!
May I take a moment to comment about comments? :-) Over the last year several popular bloggers have done a post on "Why am I doing this blog? I am not getting enough comments! Wah! I might just quit blogging!" And then of course they get over 100 comments from people begging them to stay blogging. What I have to tell them is this: If you want comments, you have to reciprocate and LEAVE comments on the blogs you read. If you don't make the effort to appreciate other people's blogs, then they will lose their reasons to comment on YOURS. Just sayin'. I don't get as many comments as I'd like.. but I won't stop blogging because of that. Unless I get to zero. Then maybe. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
