This time tomorrow, I'll just be getting home from WORK !! (Perish the thought) The week of vacation really flew by, why can't the work week go that fast? On Friday, my grand daughter and I had a very nice lunch at a quaint little place downtown. The food is very good and the service is fantastic. Yesterday, was her official 13th birthday party, complete with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons and of course birthday presents.
Today it's cooler and there's rain from time to time here in the Pacific Northwest. At least the lawn and all my plants are getting watered without any assistance from me. I've made a big pot of vegetable soup so will have it for dinner tonight and lunch the rest of the week.
The picture I've included was taken in my yard. The hydrangea is from a branch I cut off a friend's plant a couple years ago and just stuck in the ground. It's finally got one bloom on it. I spread some ashes around it from my wood stove and it has turned a nice blue color.
My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of London, who were savagely attacked on Thursday. And also to those folks in the path of hurricane Dennis, many of whom have not finished rebuilding from the damage done to their area last year.
The following was in the program at church this morning and I thought I'd share it with those who read my journal.
