My niece k & my difficult child kt mowed the lawn this morning & have helped me with some weeding. Now we're about to head out to the nursery to get 3 lilac bushes to plant... In honor of my husband, in honor of my mom & in honor of k's dad (my ex-brother in law) who died 2 weeks after husband. We're all kind of weepy this weekend & I'm pushing the girls to do something that will bring life back to this old yard. My mom painted bird baths & the top part broke. My dad is creating a new dish & will bring it up & glue it to my birdbath so I can place it in front of the bush honoring Mom. I just feel the need to do something that is about life & gives the 3 of us something to gaze upon with a smile not a tear.
