Earlier in the week we received some papers from Phil's brother. I pulled out a newspaper clipping that had this handsome AF man's photo! Be.Still.My.Heart! It was Phil after he'd completed his basic training. Yes, I saw him a few years later but never saw him in dress blues uniform. So handsome, even without his moustache! Here's a photo of Jim, Phil's dad, that was taken by my niece, Christy, a few years ago. I found it while searching through photos on line. We're going to miss him...well, we have already.
Wednesday after work Megan and I went to Wilsonville to look at a car friends had for sale. Phil met up with us after he got off work. We looked at it and talked with Mark. Megan went for a test drive with her dad in the passenger seat. She decided to take it! We went to Wendys for dinner then came back and she signed papers. She's a happy girl now! It's a nice 2002 Subaru Legacy Outback. Phil had to do a bit of work on it today, and now it idles better. Thankful our friends were able to work out deal with Megan. Now all she's waiting for is a better paying job. She has an interview next week for a job in her career field. So with anticipation and prayer, we wait and hope for the best.
Thought these might be nice for color on the table. But not sure if they'd still be blooming by then. I've not decided yet. Plants or cut flowers? Hard to find blue flowers so will stick with red and white.
After our evening walk I found this lovely flower blooming on my abultion red tiger plant outdoors. Apparently it was there on Thursday but I'd not seen it. I was so tired that day from work I just went into the house. Usually I look at the plants on the patio as I walk by. Not this time. Lovely and hopefully more will bloom this year. Last year there were few blooms and it was probably due to the heat!
That's all I have right now. I am headed for bed as I'm not feeling too good. Had a few itty bitty spider bites on me over night. I was able to take a Benadryl tablet and that helped. Neosporin to the rescue too. Now my stomach hurts and I'm tired. It didn't help that I didn't get alot of sleep either this a.m. Sigh. But the itching is gone and so.am.I. Happy weekend, my friends.
