The butterfly glow
in the narrow flute from which the morning glory
opens blue and cool on a hot morning.

Bonding with the Offspring
Our first morning glories of the season opened this morning. I was surprised to see them. For some reason, I had it in my mind that they bloom in late summer. Maybe that is the wild kind. As usual, when something blooms out there, I got all excited and ran for the camera.
It seems that I just planted these seeds a few weeks ago. Already the vines are covering the chain link fence and threatening the neighbor's privacy fence. These seeds were some sort of mixed colors. I have a blue one, a purple one and a pink one. I planted my favorite, Heavenly Blues, a couple of days ago and they are already well sprouted. I think I'm going to find some moonflower seeds to put out there as well. We have nothing BUT sunny fences.

I've had both of the boys here since Friday so have had tons of inspiration for journal entries. I seem to have squandered away my writing time though -- playing cards, watching movies, and trying to keep up with two very different school schedules. Hopefully, I'll find the time to catch up on the writing, because I like doing this so very much.
It is unusual to have both of the boys at the same time. Ed and I completely ignore the visitation schedule and let the boys decide where they want to be and when. We can do that since we only live a few blocks apart. Most often, they split up, when one is at Ed's, the other is here. It has been really nice having a full house, although the amount of activity is exponential.

Tomorrow, I'm going to Dede's to help her get ready for a garage sale. She is a brave, brave woman. I shudder to think how much work that might be . . I guess it won't hurt me; after all, I've proven to myself over the past few days that there is life beyond a keyboard.
As long as I don't have to miss my soap . . .
