Dealing With Life

Since the loss of my dear wife I have sat down many a time to write something, anything. But each time I would sit and look at my screen and then close it up. Marjie's death has left me at the edge of a black hole if you will. I try to keep myself busy so that I don't spend my entire day crying for my loss. God bless our little dog Roxy, when she feels I am going toward that black hole again she will grab one of her many toys, come bounding in growling and daring me to try and give chase. We play keep away for a good while and she loves to go for walks.

 My good neighbors have been keeping a very watchful eye on me, if I forget to open the heavy drapes in the morning I will usually get an inquiring phone call or knock at the door to make sure this old gardener is well. I have so many frozen dinners in the deep freeze that I certainly will never starve. 
Deep sadness held onto me for quite a while but I have my family to think about, I am never short of something to do. 
Our youngest son Ian and his family came over and helped demolish and haul away the old chicken house making way for the new garden shed that will be delivered on February 3rd. 

A couple of days ago I had a cement pad pored for a good solid base for the new shed which is 8 feet by 14 feet. 

The boys and I are planning a Celebration of Life for Marjie / MeMa, in July so that all of her roses and dahlias will be in bloom. She so loved her flowers and I am sure my "Flower Lady" will love that we planned it around her flowers.
