I thought that I might be able to have some quiet time to myself, after all the kids were playing with friends and husband was gone fishing. That mostly happened but not entirely because the wasps and bees were delighted by the dying cosmos and straw flower plants on my deck. They were coming a dozen at a time. They were so distracting that I finally finished my iced tea. That way I got rid of them and in essence we made peace for the rest of the afternoon. They got their flowers and I got quiet and knitting. And I almost ALMOST got my project done. Would have, should have but I had to start dropping off and picking up kids and then we went to friends to see the fish the boys caught....more of that tomorrow!
