Have A Lovely Weekend, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:47am


We have gray sky this morning. High and light rather than low and dark, but still, gray. This makes the peach roses out my kitchen window more vivid, and the pink hydrangeas in my back yard surprising, and bright.

Here in the US, it’s Father’s Day tomorrow. Some of us kids will go up to my dad’s house and get fed and enjoy the day and kiss him on the cheek as we leave. I could elaborate, but I might get sappy. And we certainly can’t have that.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend. I thank you all so much for reading. I’d dive into concepts of affection and gratitude, on my part, but again, I might get sappy. So let’s talk roses and hydrangeas and shades of pink and communicate our feelings through shared aesthetics. And say thank you. Say it so many times.

For some reason I imagine the conversations, if for one day those were the only two words in our entire language.

    I have heard that photographers prefer the overcast skies as it makes the colours "pop".

    I'd love to see a photo of your peach roses and pink hydrangeas.

    Please feel free to be sappy…
    "affection and gratitude"
    and thank you….
    …imagining from here.

    Overcast skies are, indeed, better for photographing flowers.

    Have a lovely day with your father, Lisa. Sappy is always good – at least with Dads.

    Enjoy your day with your father. Mine passed away three weeks before my 33rd birthday. Our Father's Day will have the two of our daughters who are "local" coming in the afternoon to celebrate with their dad. He has been an outstanding father, and they often are heard saying, "Thank you." Our son-in-law, grandson, and granddaughter will be here as well, but our oldest daughter will not be able to come from where she lives three hours to the west of us.

    Enjoy a wonderful visit with your father. :)

    What a lovely conversation that would be if the only two words you could say are "thank you." I can already see a children's book out of this… one that might be good for grown-ups, too. Have a go, LPC. I will buy a copy; maybe more. :)

    You've said so much without saying very much at all in this post. I love it.

    And, thank you.

    My rose bush is stunning this year, but my hydrangea is a little behind for some reason. This is an unsappy comment.

    Oh, honey, sappiness is completely excusable when writing about your daddy. I hope y'all had a wonderful time together!
