Another Weekend

Don’t you just love that first sip of freshly brewed coffee each morning?

My day lilies started blooming overnight.  My red roses are doing magnificently so within the next few days when I have dozens of yellow flowers on my day lilies the front of my house will look awesome.

I was awakened at 7:30 AM on Saturday by my granddaughter.  She was standing next to my bed in her new karate outfit.  She kicked my butt for the rest of the day.  I had to sit in my chair holding a pillow while she practiced her flying leaps, kicks, and karate chops.  She looked like a natural.  Keep in mind that she hasn’t even started martial arts school.  By the end of the summer I dare any seven year old boys to mess with her.

Deacon Nick was home for the weekend to chill out and help with some masses at a local parish.  I’m still not used to seeing him walk around wearing a Roman collar.  Remember, this was a kid I took to concerts by KISS and Smashing Pumpkins.  At one point while he was lying on the couch watching television I jumped on him, tickled him, and said, “I don’t care if you are a Deacon, you’re still my little boy”!

OK, March madness is over.  Thunder over Louisville is done.  The Derby Festival is complete.  We all have to get back to work now.
