Yes, it is possible when they are focused on one thing. That one thing was my husband who was washing off some of the furniture. I would not let the girls go over to "help" and they were not happy. No smiles this Friday.
Ellie lies beneath a blooming rhododendron. Her attention is directed at the work being done.
Ellie almost always sits and poses when I have the camera out. Not this time.
Lucy walks up and down the steps, thinking she can divert and sneak over to the hose. Not a chance, Lucy.
The girls look at me in frustration. "What is she thinking?"
The girls and I walked to the back of the house and went inside. Lucy is sitting in front of the mint I planted two years ago. [Note: If you plant mint, put it in a container.] I spend more time thinning this stuff than I do gathering it for tea, garnish, or lemonade. Starting with a single plant, this stuff seems to love its location.
Well, we've reached the beginning of another weekend. Who would have thought that a sell order with a typo would drop the Dow Jones more than 1,000 points in less than 30 minutes? The error triggered pre-set computerized sell orders and the machines just took over. The effects were seen all over the world. (Think "2001 A Space Odessey"). I am so naive I honestly thought there would be a stop-gap for this kind of error. Of course I also thought there was a stop-gap to prevent massive oil spills.
As we approach this Mother's Day, our thoughts go out to all mothers in distress. Especially those who lost their children in the recent floods, those who lost their children in the mining disasters, and those who lost their children in the oil rig disaster.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND. CLING CLOSELY TO THOSE YOU LOVE.
