|Sara and her kids|
Each year Quincey (Sara's husband) plants new flowers, trees, shrubbery, etc. in their garden so I had to take pictures of some of this year's additions.
|...a pretty creamy yellow rose|
|...a romantic pink rose|
|A very interesting shrub/tree?|
|...a lovely hydrangea|
|...a mosaic stepping stone with Quinn's picture|
|...and a water bubbling rock, which Charlie decided tasted yucky.|
I finally got some pictures of Quinn, who just turned one year old a couple of weeks ago, walking. Her short chubby little legs can move very fast.
I also got a picture of their cat Mickey. She's such a good cat. Not five minutes before I arrived there she caught a mouse, killed it, and gave it to baby Quinn. Quinn in turned clutched the little critter in her fist and took it in to show her Mom. Sara freaked out and the babysitter took it away from Quinn and disposed of it. Mickey lives to hunt and she's so very good at it. But she has to learn that she's not to bring her treasures into the house and especially not to drop them in front of Quinn.

And finally, before I made my way home again, I stopped in at the local Auxiliary Hospital to visit with an old friend who is confined there now with Parkinson's. Ann was one of my roommates back when we were single and working at the University. I stayed with her for over an hour and we had a lovely time sitting on her cool balcony catching up on family and friends - gossiping, in other words. It's nice to see her in such good spirits.
And that's a day in my life.
