Lovely walk early this morning. Much, much bird song and bird chatter to be enjoyed. Wonderful way to begin the day.

The sky last night was amazing. So gorgeous that I didn’t want to take my eyes off of it.

Lovely walk yesterday morning. It was wonderful to visit our old neighborhood. Four years of walks taken around this wee lake.

Wonderful clouds yesterday, with a beautiful sunset. I adore the smell of honeysuckle. It brings such good feelings of childhood, of walks with Thomas, sharing with him about honeysuckle and my childhood. The smell is intoxicating.

Wonderful walk with Lillian yesterday. The breeze was incredibly yummy!! Thanks to all for the magical feedback on the poem I posted yesterday. I was extremely happy to get to work on my book this past weekend!!!
Oh, and Dear Tree, I love you!! …. And, a first for Lillian. She has never stepped off the path in this place due to the downward slope as she has balance and depth perception issues. She did this time! So she could make a great photo!!

Beautiful golden hour walk last night … hot, hot, hot. Yet,it was an amazing walk. May opt for a swim tonight instead of a walk.

Lillian and I had planned on visiting the Incline Village library yesterday as she wanted to get movies for the long weekend with The Romano Duo (which started today)! Yay!!!! Respite for me started today through Saturday afternoon!!! Wahoooo!!!
We were delayed making our way up there as we had to make a quick run to the doctor for Lillian to have the redness underneath her eye checked. And to confirm it’s allergy related. (For those that don’t know the area, Incline Village and Lake Tahoe are a 30-40 minute drive from here.)
We finally arrived at the library 10 minutes before closing. Good thing we’re fast as we found about 10 movies and checked out with 1 minute to spare! Three years ago, leading up to the 2016 Chromosome 18 Conference, Lillian conquered her fear of using the stairs without my assistance. She wanted to revisit that fear before we left the library!! Yes!!! Go Lillian go!! 💥💥💥
I did not want to have driven all that way for only a 10 minute stop at the library. So we visited Kings Beach to bask in the sand, sky, trees, wind, waves, and the magical and majestic Lake Tahoe. She’s a beauty, isn’t she?
Love the wee bubbles of splashing water captured in the first photo! And what a wonderful photo of Lillian looking at the lake. The photos I’ve been posting don’t do her justice. So magical.
