I worked in the yard for hours yesterday.
It has rained so much lately that we couldn't mow or anything else, it was way too wet. But finally it's dried up enough for us to get some work done. And we did. And now I am sore! I moved rocks like a weightlifter, push-mowed, and weeded, and I am old. And tired. But - the lawn looks great!

Finally I held my hand out, and he let me hold him for a while.
Things grow so nicely here. My gardenia plant is already blooming, and gardenias can be difficult to grow. I got some Mexican petunia from a friend a few weeks ago, but I didn't plant it right away and it was looking kind of sad by the time I planted it (she just pulled some of hers up for me). But I planted it anyway and now it looks fantastic! My jasmine is climbing up the tree it's planted by and is literally as tall as me.
I am also starting a rock garden. I dug up rocks and found pieces of flint and shells. I think it's a good start.
Once it got dark, I made a fire in my fire pit, turned on my fairy lights, and kicked back with a cold beverage or three. I love my simple life.
It didn't rain here yesterday - at all.
I truly believe it was a sign and told my friend about it! I had chills. We decided it was a double rainbow so that there was one for each of us. Good things are coming!

It was so pretty I wanted to share it here.
|At the hospital where I work, there is a large duckpond. |
So it's not unusual to encounter ducks while walking in or out.
It is unusual, however, to encounter ducks trying to walk INTO the hospital!
What a couple of quacks!
