My home was alive yesterday with neighbors. I wasn't happy about this in the beginning but slowly felt such gratitude for the help. It seems that everyone saw us drive up with two new palm trees for the back yard and within an hour they were at the ready with shovels. By mid day my husband had decided to drain the pool for cleaning and five people including one child, were down in the hole with spray bottles of bleach and scrub brushes.
I hope today is a little more peaceful though! Theo is exhausted.
The Texas heat will drive us all indoors soon and we will just wave as we exit our cars and run inside to the AC. For now, I will enjoy spring and the friendliness of people who know me only as the woman I am now and have no idea of the chaos I am truly capable of.
Enjoy your day ole'.
