My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Happy Birthday, Dad

I really appreciate my father. He wasn't around much when we girls were young, but he was a strong presence. As I grew up and went out on my own, HE was the one I could count on. When my health began to fail, he and his new wife (well, they've been together for about 25 years!) were unfailing in their support. Now that I live so far away, and am married with a 13 year old Kid, he listens, offers advise when asked, and gives off-handed comments that tells me, wonder of wonders, he respects me as a person.

Happy Birthday, Dad. Hope your gift got to you on time. You are in my thoughts. V
