That's my excuse but hard to explain to Darby.
She's a good walker and will stay beside me usually unless I allow her to do some sniffing.
I do love getting out early and seeing the neighborhood quiet and cool. We surprised a little rabbit 2 houses down, but I couldn't take a one-handed picture that showed him well enough. The yards and trees are nice and green but not much else happening.
These are getting ready to make a nice show.
And the back bed that makes me happy.
These are new in my yard. I think this is one of the pots I inherited from Emily when she moved.
This is what she growing now. Poppies in April hail. And she's learning that planting seasons in Washington are a little different from Alabama.
Just-planted tomato plants after the hail.
This is what she sees on her way to work in the mornings. I love it, but it's a little different from the steamy greenness down here.
It's more work today - overtime - trying to get our account caught up. I've worked probably 15 days in a row - not full days all of them - but at least a few hours a day.
Mama, Debby, and I will travel to Tuscaloosa for my niece's wedding next Saturday, so we'll have a nice change of pace - and hopefully some nice pictures and stories. Getting dressed up and going to weddings, especially formal ones, is not what any of us enjoy doing, but we'll have a good time.
One year ago, we were in full panic mode getting ready for Emily's wedding. I was probably lost in Atlanta begging Emily or Meghan to get me back safely. Or praying for sunshine (which we thankfully received). I wouldn't want to do it again any time soon, but it turned out wonderfully. One year.
Maybe someone will talk to me today and tell me what they're doing.
