My daughter and I had lunch together yesterday. We use these times to catch up without Andrew once or twice per month. We went to El Chico, one of our favorites. The one we go to is just inside a mall.
Have you been to a mall lately? I haven’t actually been shopping in a mall or anything. I think they’re dying on the vine.
After lunch she brought me home and picked out books to read from three big stacks of books I had waiting for her.
Poor Charlie boy hates it when I go out. But boy is he excited when mom comes home!
Does anyone know what this plant is above? Is it a daisy? The leaves look like daisy leaves.
I forgot I had planted it over in the blue raised bed. A few weeks ago I remembered it and it was way underneath everything in that jungle bed, so I dug it out.
It was never going to see any sun and bloom there with other plants towering over it.
I had no idea that raised bed was going to get so wild so fast.
I moved it to the galvanized garden section of my patio and now it’s blooming.
I watered around 9 a.m. and it was already steamy out there and fogging up my camera lens.
As you can probably see, the hibiscus and pineapple sage were already withering in the heat. But I watered them and they’ve already perked back up.
Sometimes I have to water three times a day, and it’s only the beginning of July!
Yesterday I placed three pot saucers of water out for any critters in need of fresh water. I already had two bird bath areas I keep filled.
But I thought putting several on the ground would be easy for the squirrels to get to.
HE LOVES YOU: Adam adores Emily. Emily thinks Adam’s perfect, the man she thought she’d never meet.
BUT SHE LOVES YOU NOT: Lurking in the shadows is a rival, a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.
AND SHE’LL STOP AT NOTHING: Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother Pammie. There’s nothing a mother wouldn’t do for her son, and now Emily is about to find out just how far Pammie will go to get what she wants: Emily gone forever.
The plot of this book reminds me of Baby Teeth, the book I just reviewed a few days ago. Except the other woman in that scenario was the young daughter. And in this book, it is the man’s mother.
I don’t get jealous women. Never have. I’ve just never been the jealous type. Seems a waste of energy to me.
Have a nice 4th of July, whatever you have planned.
