My Mom has had a constant headache for the past week/week and a half…I really want her to go to the doctor - today. But she called and talked to her doctor’s office and they said it could be “so many things”, including the stress of grieving (which she is still VERY much in the throes of….not good). I am worried. She never gets headaches. She hasn’t been feeling well at all in, well, honestly - a couple of years. But these past few months have been worse….I might have to call her doctor myself on the DL and make sure she’s telling them everything they need to know……………….

bellechienne08  Thanks 😊 There have been several other beautiful sunsets I’ve chosen to not photograph bc of those power lines but this one was too vibrant to pass up.

Some photos from our hike to the Eternal Flame in Chestnut Ridge Park this weekend. I went with my daughter and a school group she’s in. Chaperoning high school trips this year is going to kick ass. I’ve been busier as a Mom this school year than any other before. Even more than their elementary school years…kinda weird.

Besides getting hopelessly lost when we first got there, Sammi falling and almost breaking her wrist (and iPod), me dropping my camera on some rocks, and having to use the Blair Witch’s bathroom, it was fun 😊

My Mom got this card in the mail Saturday… much to her surprise, with a generous gift enclosed. She was dumbfounded.

The return address: Michael Archangel. From an address that doesn’t actually exist.

So naturally we’ve been obsessing, trying to think of who it could really be from and we honestly can’t think of anyone we know who would do such a wonderful thing… Thank you so much for your kindness - whoever you are.

GORGEOUS #sunset that I would’ve missed if it weren’t for my husband bringing it to my attention 🌄 If only I could photoshop out those power lines.

Cicadas

I hear them again buzzing around in the trees. I don’t like it. That means it’s hot out there again. Please, no :(

The story of me.

I’m pretty excited about this sunflower. This is the first one that’s actually developed a flower bc the rabbits kept eating them before they had a chance to grow! 🐇
Now let’s hope it will bloom before the frost kills it 🌻
