Sunday sprinkles

A lovely little shower is settling the dust outside, giving the air that sweet-spicy perfume.

Dad and I will be planting tomatoes as soon as this shower passes. Still no water in the ditch but we'll risk the extra labor of having to hand water for a while to get the plants in before they get too lanky. This morning we were up shoveling on the settling pond we are putting in for the drip system and it was so quiet I could hardly believe it. Just a few crickets and once in a rare while a car on the freeway.

This afternoon we'll be heading up to Glendale to my sister's for a little celebration of mom and dad's 50th anniversary. Their anniversary is actually Wednesday but this is the only window of opportunity we could all get together and my brother will still have to miss it because he's out of town on a welding job. Cole's is a great place for him to work and I'm sure they'd have given him the time off but he just couldn't afford to miss the hours.

Hope you all have a lovely, peaceful day.


  • Happy 50th to your parents! That's quite an accomplishment these days. My mom died just a couple of weeks after their 35th anniversary (and her 54th birthday).
