When we were visiting last month, there was some altercation between these two loving siblings. I know, it's hard to imagine. Betsy was crying those big beautiful brown eyes out because her brother pulled her hair. So of course, we asked Kyle to say he was sorry. "NO! Sorry to ME! Sorry to ME!"
I'm not sure what really happened, but I do remember all those years ago that whenever I intervened on one brother's behalf, the other always had a point too. I love these moments when they are getting along :)
So far, I've been able to keep up with the training walks and the gardening. Well, most of the gardening. There are too many weeds out there and still many projects left to carry out, but it's all good.
V and I went to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. My mama was right, it was a really good movie :) Take the time to go see it. You'll be glad you did. I love going to the movies. A good story and two hours that I don't have to do anything else. Yes.
The larkspur has been gorgeous this year. It might last another week, then I'm going to take the seeds and scatter them for next year. Everywhere that gets an hour or more of sun a day is going to get it's own sprinkling of larkspur. Because you can never have too much larkspur. Or too many good Sunday afternoon movies.
I lovedWild--From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. Remember the line in the movie Hurricane? "Sometimes you don't pick the book, the book picks you." Well, a book about walking the PCT picked Cheryl. She wasn't a hiker or an athlete, but the idea of walking this trail spoke to her. She had lost her mom and her marriage and decided to walk over a thousand miles along the west coast.
A thousand miles. I've thought about her so often since I've been walking lately. If she walked 1,000 miles, I can do this little part!
It was a beautiful Sunday in the garden! Did I tell you that I'm walking Abe's Army again this year? I'm hoping for two things this time around. One, I don't want to be last over the finish line. and two, I want to have a pretty garden as well as walk the Army. Last time I was exhausted, either walking or sleeping all the time. Thanks to Chad, I feel stronger this time around so maybe I can walk and garden at the same time :) Hope your Sunday in the garden was a good one too!
