Sarah’s first day back at home after surgery has been a gift.  Things like this always make me appreciate the little things in life even more.

Gypsy moths are flying around.
My gardens and hanging baskets are dry and need watering.
Raspberries are ripening fast.
The grass was longer.

I know my house, my land, my gardens.  My roots go way down.
