It’s officially the last day of June..
(Happy Birthday Matt !!)
Yesterday evening was so nice.
Not too hot … Not too cold… But just like in Goldie Locks.. It was juuuussst right…
I decided to spend a little extra time hand watering some things in the yard..
(Normally I would throw the sprinkler out in the garden and the flower beds….and.. have at it.)
That’s when I saw it… Just as the sun was starting to set…The evening light hit my Dad’s little grape trellis just right..
Earlier this year.. Mr R pruned back the vines… I mean REALLY prune back the vines..
This…After he learned in his wine tasting class how important a hard pruning is to the vitality of the vine. The instructor explained that a hard pruning allows for more fruit…
He wasn’t kidding.
It gave me a little chill…almost like Pa was telling me.. “Look…Look at how beautiful it is!!”
That’s when I called for Mr R to get my camera..
I wanted to remember this lovely moment and the light…
I tend to think that raising children is a lot like training a grape vine..
The main vine(*Marriage) once truly rooted is the strongest.
Sometimes vines(*Children) will get out of hand..
PRUNE HARD (*Discipline).. if you want good fruit (*Good Children)
Growing a vine (*Raising a Family ) is a lot of hard work… but if it’s done right.. with a lot of love and discipline… .. will both make you drunk with happiness !
Speaking of Italian Zen….
I had to take Mamma out to have her mustache done…
We Middle aged Meditarrien folically blessed women fight a constant battle of not looking like our brethren…. literally and figuratively.
We decided to head over to our local
Nails + Wax on Wax Off place to get the deed done..
While I was waiting for her.. I quickly pulled out my handy dandy little point and shoot camera ( I don’t go anywhere without it … I mean how else could I capture little jewels like this…)
Hey there little Buddha ….
Not a bad gig you got going on… Money… Food.. Flowers..Lovely Ambient lighting.. and pretty cool looking crib.. what more do you need in life??
Buona Sera… & …..Namaste !
