Yesterday after working out at E's, helping her set out more plants in the Zen garden, discussing my new idea for how to do the fountain set-up, and mapping out for her, all the perennials she has in containers (and where they should go in the ground before winter), we headed out on the Missouri and Hauser Lake for a cruise in her boat. Sam willingly jumped right into the boat and snuggled up to E's sister on the back seat. The light was perfect, the air nippy and the evening calm and quiet. A redtail graced us with piroettes from the cliffs above us and we saw a family of whitetails browsing at the shore. By the time we got back it was dark. I had fun.
