I also miss my daughter, she's been on her own for a few years now but always has been close to home, well, within an hour or two. Now she's all the way out on the West Coast and I worry about her and miss her so much. It isn't easy sharing a house with all boys! Sometimes I just need that girl energy, LOL
My best friend came out a few weeks ago, down from Michigan. We had a great time and it did give me a girl time fix, but I yearn for more.
Well, the storm seems to be over it was good while it lasted. We were due for some rain. Our neighbor's irrigation pipping needs repair and we've not had irrigation water for a few weeks now...the good thing is that it's Monsoon season so we get a good shower every evening or so...thank goodness or we would lose our garden and fields. Of course if it really got dry we could water it from our hose but that would make for a very expensive water bill ;)
