Look how many buds and blooms are on this lovely thing! I like its shadow too, and it smells divine.
That was third in a row for unfortunate happenings in my world. Tuesday night I came out from Big Lots and found a flat tire (#1 incident). AAA came to the rescue and changed it out to my spare. I drove by my brother Kevin's auto repair shop on the way home and he happened to still be there at 7:30 p.m. (the joys of owning your own business!) He said he could fix the tire but there wasn't much of a tire left as it was so worn--the reason the nail got into my tire in the first place. So now we have to get new tires for my car. Cha-ching! (#2 incident) That means driving 10 miles to work on city streets for another day instead of taking the freeway. Good thing I asked, because Kevin told me that if you read a spare tire, it says not to go over 50 mph or travel more than 50 miles. Somehow in my mind I knew that, but it is always good to ask!
