And hello, Friday!
And hello cool ideas for planters around our living spaces!
PICTURE LINE UP:
Look at this narrow tall planter box that has fig trees in it! YES!
Parsley in a planter. Very cool. Could also be basil or rosemary. Or a combo of several!
Oh … pretty zinnias all planted in a planter box on a table. High five!
My personal favorite – donkey pulling a little cart …
A super cool concrete thing (meaning super heavy) that I found at garden store going out of business a few years ago. I got this beauty for $15. Believe it or not. Truth.
Be on the look out for something cool and extraordinary around your neck of the woods. They’re out there! Just gotta be on the look out!
My answer for nicknames of people I have in my life: my sister, Jennie, is Jen, My sister, Lisa, is Lea, my son, Hunter, is Hunter Bear, My mom is, Mama, my friend, Dixie, is Dix. And my family and super close friends call me – Cher.
What are nicknames for people close to you?
5 songs on the playlist are so pretty. Hope you have a few to give them a listen.
As always – we so appreciate your time and giving us a piece of your day on this Friday. Grateful.
Have a great weekend!

This is in response to your column about the 88-year-old mother whose daughter didn’t feel it was safe for her to drive. Please let people know that if they feel a person is an unsafe driver, they can report them to the DMV anonymously. The DMV will call them in for a driver’s license test.
I wish we had known that a possibility. After various mishaps, we had asked my stepfather not to drive. Unfortunately, one day he decided he wanted to get behind the wheel. One person was killed instantly (my mother). Thank goodness the family in the car he pulled out in front of were only injured and all recovered.
If the 88-year-old mother frequently falls, she should not be behind the wheel of a car. Not only for the safety of herself and her son, but the safety of others on the road. ~ Mindful Motorist
Dear Mindful Motorist:
