Well, even though Hurricane Irene was pretty small compared to what the weather men were anticipating, it still left plenty of damage. We are still out of power as are many others. Luckily for us, our parents live nearby and we are able to sleep and eat there. It’s still a bit hectic running around from house to house and getting ready for the market tomorrow, but it’s nothing compared to everything else that has happened this year.
We have been visiting Julian a lot this week, thinking and dreaming about him every night and bringing him fresh flowers. I just love flowers and it feels good to go there and clean up his stone and put beautiful flowers there. Many have fake flowers and that probably makes the most sense, but I just can’t bring myself to put fake flowers there. I don’t know why but I feel he deserves real ones. Today, I was very upset when we got there and the beautiful red roses that we brought to him just yesterday, were gone. The deer must have eaten them for dinner last night. I was very upset with those deer!
Lucas continues to talk about Julian often. The other day, we were talking with a woman walking her little dog and she mentioned her other dog passed away. Our little Lucas said, “Oh, that’s like our baby. He passed away too.” It made me so sad to hear him say that. I know it’s real but I wish so much that it wasn’t and I wish so much that it didn’t happen to my children. I wish I could prevent this kind of sadness in their life.
Well, on another note, before I start crying again, just wanted to let you know I will be at the Monroe Farmers Market tomorrow, Sept 2nd. We will feature our famous all organic, whole grain, CHICKEN EMPANADAS, RISOTTO BALLS, BANANA NUT BREAD, MORNING GLORY MUFFINS, DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS and BLUEBERRY LEMON MUFFINS and as well as ORGANIC JAMS, HOT FUDGE AND GRANOLA!
Stop at the market for your goodies.
