A quiet Saturday
morning afternoon around the Cottage with a picture for you to just say Hi!
Not much going on – waiting for the baseball game to begin soon. If you follow baseball, i.e. the Red Sox, you will know why I’ve been fairly silent on this subject. We are in the loo this season which makes me sad after such a glorious season last year, winning the World Series and all. But this year is a whole ‘nuther animal.
So we’re just going quietly about our business of watching the games just for the entertainment value of doing so. Let them entertain me! I am not expecting much this year and I hope that will suffice to guard me against having a broken heart because of their lackluster play.
Hey, we beat Toronto last night 8-1 – that after a night of just about the most horrible baseball game I’ve ever seen against the Yankees the night before… where we lost 14-5. Oh that hurt. It ended with our Mike Carp, who plays either left or right field or first base, stepping onto the pitching mound in the 9th inning and pitching in his Major League pitching debut! It was painful to watch. I am trying to forget…
Today is another day. Another game. Hope springs eternal.
And here is another photo taken one year from a similar one of Peggy’s forsythia bush across the street…
Look past the grass inside the fence… that IS the dog’s private area and they don’t care if the grass is green or pee-yellow… oh well. You gotta love ’em anyway. Who needs a lush green lawn anyway?
Here is the same forsythia taken a year ago – things were a little greener at this time last year:
It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
