Sunday evening Joe and I walked out to get an ice cream. Hollyhocks are the flower of Marblehead and we saw them growing all around town.
About a month ago my granddaughter had surgery to repair a cleft lip. My daughter took this picture of her over the weekend. I’m so happy that the 8 hour surgery went so well. She has to wear a small piece of tape over the site for another few weeks but other than that she’s doing fantastic! Sweet little Abigail Rose. She’s so darn cute.
My daughter, Hannah, got her masters in social work in May and has just been offered a great job. She’s very happy and I am very happy for her.
There’s a grocery market just around the corner from our house. It’s not a chain market and is a bit more expensive than the store we normally go to. But, we have been going there lately as it’s so convenient and because it’s just the two of us it’s rather nice. It’s a smaller store and less frantic. I can walk for just a few things or ride my bike. I walk past a lot of beautiful little gardens like the one pictured above. It’s a pleasant change from where we were living before and had to go off island to get to the market.
The bean plants we planted in my toddler classroom have been growing like crazy! The children love seeing how they are growing so big!
