One of these things...

An old Sesame Street song keeps running through my head as I look out the window and see these trees..."one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong..." Thanks to 60 days of 100+ degree weather this summer, we have a dead evergreen:( I guess $600+ a month in water bills can't keep everything alive. I know what we'll be doing once the weather cools off...planting a new tree!

Peace and Quiet and Friends

All is right with the world:) The kids started back to school today. Grant is an 8th grader, Garrett is a junior...both William and Christine are starting their sophomore years in college. (William actually starts on Wed., but left for Utah on Saturday.) Christine has decided to finish up at the local community college 10 minutes from our house rather than return to "Snow"...there is more than one way to "skin a cat" my friends...our pocketbook sure is appreciating the local tuition compared with what we are paying in Utah! I surely will need to get a job soon:)I enjoyed the day by making a run to Home Depot...trying to get a small project out of the way, and then I had lunch with a great group of friends...2 hours of laughter does the heart good. It's always comforting to know that we are all "in this" together, and that there really is support all around us. Thanks for coming to town Lorraine so we could all catch up:)
