John and I stay busy, but many of the things we do are not worthy of a blog post. Often neighbor CAT walks with us, and lately she joins John on the retaining wall for a leisurely scratch.
One of the first days we ate breakfast on the porch this season, we had blueberry pancakes. John thought I was just taking a shot of the food, so he sat there quietly, not smiling. I might have done a retake if the pancakes had not been getting cold.
Logan came one afternoon, playing checkers with first John and then grandson David. Three of us also played Set, using real cards instead of doing it online.
Daughter Lise sent a selfie showing her new Danish passport and haircut. From New Jersey, daughter Kate shared her new haircut with us and Lise.
John always notices and comments on the flags the town of Waynesville puts out for Memorial Day. Each flag has a name of a resident who died in war. We’ve seen this done in other towns, too.
This flame azalea, a native of our mountain region, is close to one of the streams near our house. Cultivated azaleas have varied pastel colors, but this local is always a distinctive orange.
David has been running the sound board at church for the late service. The man who taught him that asked him to stay after choir to learn about the organ. We don’t have a substitute organist right now, and our regular one will be out of town one Sunday in June. Using the organ, she recorded the music that will be needed that day. John took this photo of David’s hands on the controls. He will make the organ play the recorded music for the liturgy, as well as all the hymns, at the appropriate time. It would scare me silly to do that, but he said it was easy.
Do you have activities or events that are not worth a blog of their own?
