shopping with my son

Rainy day shopping with son and Pearl and True which began with the need to find a new ceiling fan for my bed room. We start the search at Home Depot as they have great children carts and quickly decide on a remote control ceiling fan. The rain continues and since we are out, we decide to look for a canoe, since we can't take the kids in our single seat kayaks. But Dick's has only two canoes in the store. The children are restless and needing a snack. After blue berry muffins at Panera we decide to look at lap tops for me next door at the Best Buy. MacBook Airs were on sale! And here I sit before my so light weight 11" MacBook which I was able to set up on my own.

I have been commandeered by grandchildren, happily, but the time is hurtling along. Red buds are on the very plump edge. And I am getting a new roof that is absolutely the icing on the cake! Blood root down by the river and woods along creek, and by the house the Virginia bluebells which I transplanted have spread and proliferated. It is blustery but warm.
My rooster, Mahoney died today - a surprise and I just noticed that he looked a bit ragged yesterday; then last night he wasn't on the perch between hens, but asleep on the floor. This morning cold.
Tomorrow I will have grandchildren for an overnight while their parents go to visit very ill friend. I've had Pearl and T. this week while Baldwin and Mindy teach at VT. Even successfully got T. to nap. So perhaps the overnight will be uneventful!
