Look who came over yesterday. We had spaghetti and meatballs for supper, and then planted some flowers in pots on the patio. We planted mostly marigolds. They are bright, cheerful flowers, and sturdy enough to withstand the enthusiasm of little hands pushing them into the dirt and then dousing them with "one more drink" of water.
Afterward, we had popsicles while sitting on the porch swing and talking to Dan on Facetime. He comes home tomorrow!
