Remember my previous post, where I talked about flooding Facebook with positivity from our own lives? (No? Read it here.)
Anyway, I fully intend to keep that up, just not on a daily basis, because let's face it, I have issues.
So here is my next "positive" pic.
This is one of the scars from my recent knee surgery (from my p.o.v.). Healing nicely & looking like a butterfly ("because a dragonfly's body would be longer" <<< says my argument with the Stork because my boys don't know the difference). Have I mentioned yet that I love my orthopedic surgeon? Call me strange for loving this, I'm damned proud.
Sorry I've been away for a bit. Things. Stuff. Life. You know how it is.
This past week was the last week of summer vacation for my boys & we've been, well you know how it goes. We tried to pack a few fun things into this week.
Imagine if you will, coming home from work one day, dog tired, mentally worn out from having to deal with "PEOPLE".
You pull into your driveway (or parking spot), do the usual getting out of the car routine & head into your house (or place of residence). You walk through the door & once inside grab the doorknob to shut the door behind you.
Would you notice this?
Yes, the picture above is of my backyard bench. All alone. Waiting for people to sit on it. For a family photo shoot.
Actually, the bench is on the north side of my yard in this pic. Under my arctic willow bushes (named Talkeetna & Denali after two of my favorite places in Alaska). In the area where the grass does not want to grow because of the shade & slight inversion that causes the water from the sprinklers to pool & flood.
I'd love to keep the bench here. It is a beautiful spot in my opinion & in the summer when it's hot, this area is cooler than the rest of the yard. I can imagine sitting there reading a book or pulling the leaves off willow branches to make wreaths.
The only drawback is that my neighbors' dogs don't like it when I hang out on that side of the yard. They think I'm invading their territory. Silly doggies!
