My Standing Date with Daisy


It's the last part of the summer, when no one has the time or inclination to swim except for Daisy and me. We have a standing pool date for 4:15 every afternoon, when it's shady enough to skip the sunscreen. We have a lot of races, slap at wasps with the wacky noodles, then come inside to cook dinner.

And you thought you could trick me with 'wacky noodle'! I know what you hit the wasps with, Google told me so. :)

I believe Daisy will treasure these dates forever in her mind. My mom did not have time for dates. As a single mom raising 4 teenagers angry from divorce, she did the best she could. At 76, my mom and I have dates...times when I can take her out to lunch, but sadly she now suffers from Dementia. It takes alot of strength not to get frustrated when she asks the same question 5 times,within a 15 minute period. I am sorry if this sounds like a downer moment, but it really is heartwarming to me that you and Daisy have this set time. Guard it carefully.
blessings, jill

Maybe you should have named your water-baby "Lily". ;-)
