Trashy Treasure

It’s been overcast & rain clouds have been flirting with us most of the week. 
I don’t mind it so much. 
Grey skies are calming. 
It kind of feels like fall & that isn’t so bad.
It matches my mood. 
This morning’s walk was almost called off due to some light rain,
but we decided to go ahead & stick it out.
I talked Kevin out of his shark flip flops & he slipped on his old boots.
I let him borrow my umbrella.
I think I need to get him his own sometime.
We live in a little circle where the homes are small but we have generous yards.
Kevin adores helping Rocky take care of ours.
When I spotted a weed whacker sitting by someone’s trash, I contemplated whether to let Kevin take it.
I like to repurpose & all, but I’ve never felt the need to take something that was set out for the trash.
Especially something that looks so much like a piece of trash.
 It was clearly broken & the blades removed. 
But then I knew how thrilled Kevin would be to have one to use alongside his dad.
I can buy him shiny new toys but after the thrill of opening the box, there’s not a lot of interest.
After he toted it home & I saw his eyes shining, I knew I did a good thing.

Rocky is spending a week staying next to the River Walk in San Antonio.
I am jealous, but if someone had to stay in one of my favorite cities & eat delicious Mexican food… 
I’m glad it’s my very best friend.
