This weekend will somehow be a bit more normal than last. Still empty, still lonely-but a bit better. And I guess this is normal, isn't it?
We have had amazing weather lately, so the garden is being expanded. And while most of it can't go in until May 24 weekend (which falls on May 20 this year-Victoria Day weekend)hopefully I can weed the rest of it, & maybe get the potatoes into the newly expanded part. I got the Rose bed cleaned out in an effort to occupy myself last week. Mike even bought some Cedar trees to plant-so I'll probably supervise that!
And I have thank you notes to write-people have been so kind & so generous to us. I will send notes & I will write a thank you for the newspaper for the people who were involved in Adam's life. And I'm sure I will shed some tears as I do all this-but not as many as last weekend.
We are becoming accustomed to the role of "Empty Nesters"-seems odd not to have to plan nursing hours, or to have the freedom to do something as simple as going down to the lake. Maybe we can get the paddle boat in?
What do YOU have happening this weekend? What is your weather like? I heard from Cynthia in Iowa-they got S**W yesterday!!
