I'll meet you by the tree.....

Today is Good Friday.

It's also been 3 weeks since G died. At 1109 pm. Despite that, I'm having a pretty good Friday, but I'm a little afraid of my Friday night. Some friends want me to go somewhere with them, but I'm not really into it.

As a matter of fact, it's 5:19 pm and I'm already showered and in my jammies. We have some fairly bad weather around us.....and I'm watching my favo weatherman (Hi James!) and looking at Skywatcher chat, weather radar, etc, etc. The exciting Friday night life of a nerd.

But I did do something good today.

I planted a tree. : ) In memory of G.

Yesterday's post should explain how this tree idea came about....

So anyway, the tree is planted. It's very pretty and I know it probably won't bloom until next spring, but it's nice just having it here. And it's right by the same spot where I took that picture of G that I posted yesterday...of course he was digging to fix our sprinkler system...but it's just across from that !!

Digging the hole ? OMG. Alabama clay my ass, more like Alabama rock !!! But I persevered and was successful, and I got it the right size and all fertilized and all, and now "the G tree" is in it's spot !! I even staked it so it would be able to get it's roots all strong. Yay me !

As I was sitting looking at my work I got to thinking that it looks kind of lonely.
Gregory always liked to "willie things up", as he put it. So I think once it settles in I'll put a nice rock border around it or something like that. He would like that. He's the one who taught me how to use quikrete, stack stones and build border walls and stuff like that. So see baby I was listening after all !

So I took his favorite outside decorative thingy and set it by the tree with him. I remember when he moved me here from Poplarville, he got it out of the truck and set it right on our back deck so it would greet us. He said it always made him smile. So I hope it still does.

I love you babes. I miss you. And I'll meet you by the tree.

P.S. Thanks to everyone for reading my blog and the cool comments. Hope I'm not being too emo ! Keep reading and I promise to have some amazing excellent adventures of Beaux and Teddy soon !!

Tree looks good, Kim. Don't tie it too tight to the stakes --- it needs to move in order to strengthen the trunk.

Otherwise, it won't be able to stand alone. Just like you're going to learn how to stand alone.

I can hardly wait to hear of Teddy the Terrorist's adventures.

I came back by to hopefully see your tree. It looks beautiful.

I thought about you today, and in doing so...took myself to the local nursery and purchased some blooming Azaleas and planted them. When they live and bloom next spring, I know I will think of your sweet husband and you when I see them.

I really hope you don't think that was was not meant to be!
