In other events, the final installment of my order of day lilies arrived today so I'll be planting tomorrow. Now, I'm just waiting on the male Kiwi. Who knows. I may have to send them a message asking about it. J16 is also planning to send them a message. We ordered her blue climbing rose last spring and planted it soon after we bought the house. Last year it set buds right before the first frost and even though it has grown tremendously this year (all the way to the porch roof!) we still have had no flowers. How odd. The rose I planted this year is doing really well and still blooming.
We have also had some sad news here. The mother of one of J16's good friends died suddenly on Monday. She was only a few months older than I am. J16 and some of her other friends are planning to attend the funeral tomorrow morning to support their friend. Sometimes, things like this make me realize what a great kid we've managed to raise. It also makes me realize that we never really know what's going to happen and to make sure we make the most of life and make sure the ones we love know it.
Enough waxing philosophical- I gotta get the pizza out of the oven.
