Early morning dental appointment in town 30 minutes away.
This wonderful weather continues and in the early morning the
windows and doors are open - love the fresh air.

Noticed  that the Crepe Myrtles are blooming as I drove to town
and they are so beautiful.
I would like a white one
but remember I have vowed not to plant
anything else....

As I head out the country road towards home and
 turn into my gravel drive
the small Crepe Myrtle planted 3 years ago
is beginning to bloom and get some size on it.

Notice the mail carrier is coming down the road
so I get out of car
for him to hand me my mail.

A package has arrived
and can hardly wait to open it as I have been told to expect this item
It is a gift of a wonderful apron.
Just my size and
one with a bib and 2 large pockets
in my favorite color of blue - I love it.....
Have thoughts of saving it and just looking at it
but think I will be wearing it daily and the pockets will be full.
Also a surprise of a book written by this special person.
Thank you - so very much for thinking of me.
These words do not sound like enough to say for something so meaningful to me.
But they come from my heart.....
At the local hardware store
an inexpensive chair in my color
and it was on sale.   Placed it in front and will be a wonderful  place to sit and enjoy the view.
Will have to remember to move it when there is a storm as it is not very heavy.
and might blow away.
and my constant little companion
Miss Callie
is glad I am home.....

Crepe myrtles are always such a joy to have since they bring color to a tiring summer.

Callie is so lucky to have such a good home and companion.

I love that photo of Callie....what a sweetie.
We don't see crepe myrtles here very often so I was happy to enjoy yours this morning. I can see why you would be tempted to plant a white one.
The apron is beautiful, and I do love that type with the pockets. Such a thoughtful gift, too.

I also love the apron...don't know what I would do without my bibbed one with large pockets. I also like what Laura said, "joy in the little things...that is what fills life's pockets." I think your pockets are always full.

Sallysmom, Charlotte, Laura, Marcia and Mary, thank you so much for visiting - this is not a good health day for me - hopefully it is just because rain is predicted.

Tabor, thank you. A compliment from you is so special to me.
I view you an expert in your writing and camera use :)

Crepe myrtles and a book and a chair and an apron.

And Callie to top it all off like cream on a cream puff.

Lucky blue you...
