Roses.....they're doing their third bloom....then they get to rest.

 ...then it's time for them to go to sleep.

-I was visiting a dear friend of mine. She lives the life of royalty yet is so kind and considerate. It had been over 18 months since I had the privilege of seeing her. It was lovely, and I brought her some of my roses. 

(This was the first time I had to show my vaccine card to prove that I had taken the shot (J&J). From day one, I've been carrying that card/receipt to prove to anybody who asks me for proof.)

We had lunch overlooking the estuary. It was gorgeous inside and outside. 

-Another good friend, wrote to me:

We decided we’re not going to Spain this year. Last year we decided not to go to London. We haven’t figured out yet where we’re not going to go next year.

-I like the fact that we can laugh about what seems to be so wrong, in/with the world. If we can't laugh then we'll cry. And crying is a way to relieve tensions. But I don't know of anybody that wants to be around a crybaby. 

-I heard this phrase on KQED.... 'technology hangover' restarting 'live' school ,.

My daughter-in-law is one of my heroes. She teaches Middle School (used to be known as Junior High School) science. Not only was the seventh grade the worst year of my life, but I also started without knowing anybody, because my Dad was transferred once again. And my folks bought a house in Newport Beach. As I mentioned previously, they promised it was our last move. And it was.

-There are many things that may be out of my control, BUT it's all about ''thought." If I can control my own thoughts, the proper action I may take is to rise up above the negativity and really stop, think, pray, to listen about what next steps I need to take. 

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
