Summer Sundays

Our weekends have started to include grave tending.  This is certainly not something I expected at this point in my life and certainly not something I expected to have to do for Alexander.  The groundskeepers do a good job of keeping the grass cut at the cemetery but the cemetery is so big that they do the cutting in sections.  With all the rain we’ve had lately, the grass and weeds are really sprouting up.

When I was visting Alexander recently, I overheard another couple visting a family member say ‘It’s been so long I can’t remember which one it is.’  Rain or shine, I visit Alexander’s grave a few minutes nearly every day.  I can’t imagine a time would come that I would say I can’t remember which plot is his.

We’ve had a busy weekend.  Out for dinner with friends on Friday and Saturday nights and we’re supposed to go see the Cezanne exhibit in Philadelphia this afternoon.  I miss Alexander terribly but it was nice to have a lot to do.
