Sunday morning has been beautiful in so many ways; I made coffee and took it up to the roof garden to see the Sun. The camp was quiet there was a very light breeze one could call it a whisper of a breeze. I looked out to the Sea of Cortez and it was Azure Blue with pinpoints of sunlight glistening off a mere ripple of waves. My plants are recovering from the winter showing new leaves on the bougainvillieas which I had fretted about when they lost their leaves a few months ago. The mesquite trees are leafing out now so that is a good sign of spring.
I didn’t hear the usual tinkling sounds from my fountain so I went down to the garden to check it out and found a little debris blocking the intake to the pump. I watered a few potted plants and the hanging baskets of plants too, hanging basket plants need constant attention. I realized I had to get ready for an important occasion and hurried through my morning routine.
This morning was a benefit breakfast to raise money for Cancer treatment of a daughter of one of our beloved doctors. This community pulls together for such things and there have been several benefits to raise enough money to send her to a special clinic in Cuba to help her fight this terrible disease.
I and my friend Irene support many charitable fund raisers in town she usually hears about these things first and sells the tickets to others and I’m a sure bet to buy them. I’m not into big crowds but in this case I made an exception because of the cause and that my friend Irene would be there. Here are some photos of the breakfast.
The message tree to place good wishes for recovery
The Band Played for our enjoyment
Chulita is the young lady’s name and she got to talk to us over the internet
Irene and I enjoying our people watching at the event, it is so much nicer to share with a friend
I think the most emotional time was when the young lady spoke to us over the internet she is very ill and yet so loving it brought tears to my eyes.
Now for the rest of the day after this emotional event that I’ll think about for a long time.
