Darkness

Darkness is descending. I was once told that “nothing good happens after dark.”

Growing up, that was a true statement for me. Growing up in the Chicago area with gangs, one did not venture too far, especially at night.
But, as a teenager, I didn’t think much about heading out. Until … one night, I was held up at gunpoint.
More to follow on that story. But God spared my life.

Day’s End

Waiting for the sun to go down as Sabbath approaches.

Looking back, it was a busy day.  I received 2 free compost bags from the city of Seattle. Unfortunately the kitchen compost containers were out of stock.

I watched Wheel of Fortune.  One wouldn’t think that was a special event except that it reminds me of my mother who watches it faithfully every day.  I just occasionally view it.

The flowers I received for Mother’s Day are still alive ~ well, except for the roses.  Seems like those are the flowers that die first.

The Small Things In Life

So my husband asked if he could get me anything from Starbucks and I thought I’d be cute and said “a tall non-fat decaf latte with lots of foam and” — then he rolled his eyes.

Off he went to the store and he did stop at Starbucks.  My youngest son went with him.  He’s 25 and a world traveler.

When they return, I get exactly what I ordered.  Isn’t it nice to have guys who like to please?
