Hello my friends. I wanted to show you how pretty the trim on the front porch looks which Kristi is painting. Our next project is to replace the porch boards which have deteriorated and re-paint the porch deck. The front facing boards on the steps down will also be painted red, soon.
Kristi picked a bouquet of roses from our garden and put them on the table. They are all fragrant and lovely.
These two are called "Double Delight" roses and smell divine.
IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY MY "POLITICAL COMMENTARY" ON MY BLOG - PLEASE READ NO FURTHER. THANK YOU.
I was criticized this week on Facebook for talking on my blog about my concerns about our current administration. In fact the discussion got heated which ended up in one family member being "un-friended" and blocked by another family member. This made me so sad.
I have thought long and hard about this and have come to the conclusion that I have to be "real" on my blog. I cannot put on rose-colored glasses and pretend that I'm not thoroughly concerned about the social climate of my country.
I really appreciate those that disagree with me and that still like me enough to read my words and stick with me. You know who you are. :-) I also really appreciate those that agree with me and have my back during these difficult times.
I don't need to tell you what is happening this week in our political arena, most of you are seeing it on the news even around the world. But the tide is turning a bit and people are beginning to take a stand on not accepting the white supremacist behavior of the person in the White House and his entire team.
There is hope. Thank you for reading this far. You get a gold star. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
