Pretty much directly after my children came to visit I drove down to Santa Barbara to see my mom. And there we have midlife, in one little sentence. There was no health crisis – this time – but my 3 siblings and I now make sure that Mom and her husband get a visit from one of us every month. They’re 81. I imagine many of you have similarly aged parents.
Time to get back on the road. Fortunately, our heat wave has passed. Fortunately also, Santa Barbara was a dang good place to sit out 95F+ temperatures. Am taking bets on whether my front-yard lettuces recover. Odds, anyone?
Have a wonderful weekend.
