The kids are gone and we all have a period of adjustment. It's awfully quiet. Steve and Dave have gone on a couple of decent motorcycle rides. I've been doing a little cleaning and lots of washing.
My bushes suddenly burst into bloom after a rain the other night. They have never had so many flowers on them but this year they have a lot more sun since we lost a tree that used to shade them.
My daughter-in-law's mom sent a box of beautiful home grown tomatoes all the way from Maryland. She packed them in "peanuts" and they arrived just fine. Some were totally green when they arrived several days ago but are quickly ripening. Steve and I are doing our best to stay on "top" of them as they ripen but it is hard with Helen not here yet. Dave doesn't like them because he says they give him heart burn. I loooooove them so it's a big salad every night and what could be better than a BLT sandwich?
