Luke continued to work away on the roof, a friend of ours came and helped him all day, which was great.
I spent my morning in the kitchen and my afternoon playing in the dirt. I went to the garden center today to get pepper plants and got sidetracked by all the beautiful colors in bloom. I came home with peppers, gerber daisies, and moss roses. So much beauty.
Yesterday, we received an awesome gift from some friends. They came over for dinner and when they got here they pulled an apple tree out of the back of the truck. A simply lovely surprise. This afternoon Luke's parents, Steven and Bonnie, showed up and Steven planted the apple tree for us. It makes me happy.
Digging the hole
We had a bunch of friends over for supper and we set up a picnic out in the driveway. The kids played in the dirt and with bubbles and we laughed and enjoyed life. I have such amazing friends that encourage me and bring joy to my life. I am blessed indeed.
