Christmas Corners #2

My yard is still blessed with a few late roses and I have been gifted with some fuyu persimmons and pomegranates, all adding a simple sweetness to our California holiday season.
More soon, sweet kisses for now!

The Dear Daughter and the Corn Tiger are installed at the apartment down in the City and I am missing the gift of participating in their daily life. He can't quite ride the "scoot bike" I got him for his birthday, but he still likes to take it out. When they were here he would look through the glass panes in my front door before he was even dressed for the day.
He would call to his little wooden bike parked on the front porch, asking if it was still there.
"Vroom Walk!"
He would hold the handles and walk it down the front steps from the porch, with me at his side saying, "Careful. One step. Now careful."
Across the stepping stones in the front walk and right at the sidewalk.
"Stop at the corner and wait for Nana. Look both ways. Anybody coming? Have to be careful of those big cars. OK. All clear. All business in the street."
Once across, we'd turn right in front of the elementary school and he'd take off running beside Vroom.
Those little hips wagging. Those little sneakers pit-patting on the sidewalk.


Vroom! The days slip past. And he's only 20 months at Christmas.

More soon. Love for now.

Christmas Corners #1

Early resolution to post more here.
I'm going to start with pictures, always a good way to get me going.
This one is CA seasonal -- sunshine, pomegranates, the last of the hollyhocks, a tiny advent
calendar and a wind up toy from Christmas past who has become a character around the house.

More soon, love for now.
