Everyone I talk with in our area is raving about how nice the lilacs are this year. Our next-door neighbor has a huge lilac bush bursting with blooms. They literally scent the entire area here at the end of the road.
I had an interesting moment early this week. The alarm on my phone went off. The dog woke up, walked over to the bed wagging her tail & walked with me to the door of the bedroom. My thought was 'This is a Groundhog Day moment'. I think Ari & I have played this scene out every day for more than 7 years (since she was a pup) and we would do it again the next morning and the morning after that and well, you get the picture. It was endearing mostly but also a little disconcerting. It was as if my life had become very routine--rote really. I thought about it for a second & then found the comfort in knowing that things were going to happen in a specific way at a specific time. It won't always be like that but for now, it's fine.
I hope all of you are safe, happy & enjoying your present location. We're all fine smellin' the lilacs here at the end of the road. Next up--rhododendrons. Thanks so much for stopping by.
