the river

It was a very hot day today,,so my son and I went down to our river, the Harpeth river. I have been taking the kids there for years. Alot of people canoe the river and that is the take out point where different canoe rental co. come and pick canoers up at. Its all little rocks on the beach. I always find alot of nice smooth river glass there. I trained the kids to look for river glass for me,,and today my 21 yr. old son, Kyle still found some for me. He knows how much I Love it.
I just don't know what I would do without my Kyle. He and I are so close. His sister and I are not talking right now. Well I would love to talk to her,,but she has wrote me off because I cannot accept her "man". He is a loser,,she is just 19 and he is 27, doesn't work and has been in and out of jail,,,he has no future,,and that is not what I want for my baby girl. I Love her so much and she has so much potential,,but I just cannot accept him. I sound awful I know,,but there is alot more to the story,,and I just can't write about it because it makes me so depressed.
But my son always has been here for me,,,he never forgets my birthday or Mothers day,,he is still finding his way in life,,but I am so proud of him. And he was a little devil when he was young,,and Kalyn was a little Angel,,funny how things change.
Thank you Kyle for spending the afternoon with me,,,even if it did storm.

Kalyn,,,I miss You so much,,and I hope that one day if you have a daughter you will understand why I feel the way I do.

One of my favorite pictures.

I took this pic the other day. It is one of my columbine bushes that bloomed so pretty this spring. I have a pink one and a purple one. I love getting close up shots of insects. This bumble bee was really enjoying the columbine!

New Floor!

I finally have a wonderful new floor in my living room. The grungy brown thread bare carpet is history. I now have a awesome heirloom cherry laminate floor. It is so pretty! So soft to walk on. Our bratty dog Lady is n0t so sure about it. She liked her carpet better. She knows she cannot have accidents on this new floor or she will be history,,lol. Not really,,she is my baby girl. We still have to put the trim back down, and also we are doing the dining room and the hallway. I have been wanting this for so long,,its like a dream come true!!!

Trying my hand at blogging again.

Its been awhile since I have tried to write in my blog. Then I noticed a friend of mines blog and it is just delightful. I want to learn how to add pictures and I want to show my wonderful gardens that bring me so much joy.
