My online friend, Foster Abba, had a frightening encounter with a pair of door to door salespersons the other day. You can read about it by following the above to her "home school" blog.
These days, we can't open our mail, we must beware of text messaging and our phones, and, for heaven's sake, let's not answer your door unless we know who's on the other side. I'm not fond of dealing with traveling salespersons but this is the first time I'd realized they could be dangerous as well as pesky.
I made connections with friend Dave and his 100 year old friend for coffee this afternoon. He's (Dave, not the 100 year old friend) back safe and sound, if a little exhausted, after his year long travels around the USA and the lower part of Canada. While I was out, Ray decided to mow the lawn. He said he did a little, rested, did a little more, etc. He did a lovely job (electric mower - I would have thrown a huge fit if he'd done it any other way). Now he's talking about planting a rose bush for me and I've been thinking about setting out a few bulbs. I'm no gardener but possibly I can keep from killing a daffodil or two. I might even think about a cherry tomato plant. We love them. Right now, all I have growing is mint.
The girls talked to their mom last night. They were disappointed about missing our meeting but are already excited about next week. I'll have pictures for them of the house, us, and some of their old friends as well as some Valentine's Day treats.
Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend.
