A week or so ago, Samantha, Sara and Richie stopped by for a little visit and lunch on a Sunday and i caught this cute picture as Samantha and LM pretended they were cats and other sorts of creatures in hopes of luring Ms G out of hiding. Alas, it did not work, but their efforts were such fun. They also drew some great pictures of sharks....not quite sure how they thought the sharks could tempt one reclusive cat to come out of her lair???
Pretending to be cats with the requisite noises.....
In the meanwhile, the rough edges of change are softening as our lives settle in around John's needs. We're rather liking the family dinners which seem to now encompass Sundays.
There are indeed signs of Spring after this very cold and stormy winter. Last Saturday morning, John and I worked in the yard/garden and accomplished so much. His willing brawn, helped me do more than I could have finished in several weekends of work. We were able to spot the primroses showing some tiny leaves and that lifted my heart to new heights. We removed all the broken branches and twigs and raked thoroughly. There is, as with all gardens, much more to do, and knowing I have a willing assistant, makes me look forward to our times working together. We chatted and shared as we went along and there was laughter, too.
That evening, LM and I shared a fun date and went to see "The King's Speech." Really, one of my favorite movies of all time....our choice for the Oscar!
