Celebrating with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. and connecting with others who share their celebrations, too. It's a joy to read everyone's words of celebration.
There are those "things" that count, and they are sometimes thought of as 'big' and 'little', yet they make my life the joy that it is, so I won't judge, just share. Here are a few pictures and explanations of some of the nice things this week:
I started the week having brunch with my son-in-law and my daughter and the grand-girls for Father's Day. What a grand father he is! And I celebrated my two fathers. My first father was a pilot in World War II, and was lost in a battle near the Philippines. I was two, don't remember him, but loved his parents, my paternal grandparents, dearly, so I imagine he was a wonderful man. The second father became my father when I was about six, and also fought in World War II, was stationed all over the world in the Army Corps of Engineers. He was a wonderful father to me, and grandfather to my children.
Today is my daughter-in-law Barb's birthday, and I am a lucky mother-in-law to have such a wonderful daughter-in-law. Barb and Nathan just celebrated their twentieth wedding anniversary. Wow, time sure flies. I'm celebrating them, and that they and their son, Carter, are coming to visit for this coming weekend's holiday!
I've anticipated this bi-annual library sale for a while, and went Wednesday, found a bag of books I wanted, and had a terrific time browsing. The protrusion on the left and the extensions crossing the street are part of the Denver Art Museum. The main library is that building on the right.
I spent quite a bit of time this week with the grand-girls, and part of it was not a good thing except we're all glad that it wasn't worse. Imogene, who climbs nearly everything she can with skill, broke her arm around dinner time one evening. She simply tripped and fell. So, I stayed with her and Ingrid part of one day, etc. This time we really did celebrate that the break is a simple one, and a cast will be placed Monday. No pictures. Imi would not have been happy to have one taken. Maybe next week?
Every week I celebrate the beauty out of doors. And I take more pictures! This time, a rabbit nibbling on the green outside my fence, and the lilies "after" a good rain. I loved that I captured raindrops too. Enlarge to see!
And I celebrate my time at the bookstore. Out of need, I've been there three times this week, and each time I discover something new I haven't read. This time, another lovely story from Patricia Polacco, a young/old relationship bringing two different ages and cultures together, showing beautifully how much they have in common.
Life is good! EXCEPT-I missed going to All-Write this week, thought of all of you there, and know it was a special time. Next year!
