Starting to open.
I did a lot of yard work yesterday. And then, hearing that rain would be here on Tuesday and Wednesday, I mowed the entire front lawn. If I had let it go until Thursday, it would have been way too long.
At the end of that little job, I was exhausted.
My friends, Noble and Tina, stopped by yesterday to give me an Opening Night present:
A beautiful azalea to plant in my garden, along with this McCoy pot. I’m thrilled to say that I didn’t have this particular piece of McCoy. I do now! Thank you, Noble and Tina. This was presented in a box decorated by Tina with the ‘Romanov’ crest – entirely appropriate for Anastasia.
As often happens in life, this is a day of highs and lows. Anastasia is opening tonight. That’s the high.
Three years ago, on this date, my mother passed away.
I miss her every day.
The bitter and the sweet.
I’m off to get ready to catch the bus to the city. If I decide to take my laptop along, I’ll try to post tomorrow. If I don’t, you’ll see a post on Wednesday.
