(It's not quite ready for company. But progress was made.)
I intentionally stopped myself from trying to compose blog posts while I was away. I needed to concentrate on where I was in my real life. Consequently, now I have no brilliant post to mark my re-entry into blogland. Several things happened while I was away that I might have written about, had I been writing….
March 24th marked the six-month anniversary of Rita’s passing. There are still reminders all around. The sun makes interesting shadows through the holes in our fence.
The cedar tree in the back yard was finally completely cut down and hauled away. Only the stump remains.
They finished putting our new roof on yesterday. Goodbye blue tarp!
The church I have been visiting moved back into their sanctuary a couple of weeks ago. The stained glass windows that were carried over from the original building built back in the 60s did not survive the storm. Last Sunday I noticed the lack of sunlight streaming through the east and west corners of the ceiling, saw the solid wall, and grieved the absence of those windows. Alas, loss is a part of life. We count the loss, we grieve, and, hopefully, we move on, because there is always something left to inspire our gratitude.
The buttercups are blooming! I love buttercups. They remind me of my childhood.
