This time last week I was anticipating my final day without visitors.
We had a diver in our pool clad in a dry suit,
checking for leaks,
he assured us there weren’t any.
Now, one short week later, I’ve survived a houseful, thrown a party, become a mother-in-law without any tears, seen Lincoln, done drive-through-sight-seeing downtown, made a dent in the left-over Deep Ellum Blonde, eaten a high dollar breakfast, watched two English boys swim, minus dry suits and without chattering, in a pool with a temperature of 16 degrees centigrade
and had company on my favourite walk,
around the empty pond…not!!
Now all is as if it never happened, except for the photos!
I miss having an excuse to go and sit on the glider and watch them play bringing back memories of my homeschooling days. Only my crowd would never be swimming in April!
