Last week was a busy week. The month of fasting was over. M’s sister had come up for the Eid celebration. She was with us the whole week.
We all got together at a local Park. After the prayers we had a lot of ethnic food from different countries. The children enjoyed being outside. I didn’t want all of them inside the mosque, and everyone was okay with it. The day was good and I had a lot of help.
Everything looks so fresh and green. Flowers are blooming all over my yard.
The gold iris are blooming again. Can’t believe I have had them for more than two decades. Like the Old Faithful, they come up every year. Always a surprise at their stunning color and beauty. Rhododendrons are in full bloom, as are the clematis and the primroses.
Have had visits with lots and lots of Blue Jays, gold finches, and cardinals along with robins.
Life is good, almost. Going to have cataract surgery this Thursday. Right eye first, then next week it will be the left eye.
Oh well. That’ll be all for the time being. Be well, and please continue to hold the people of India in your thoughts and prayers.
