Today, my first rose bloomed and I am giving it to Eva, my dear sister. It is her birthday. She lives in Chicago – I talked to her on the phone already and will probably call her again later. My sister and I always laugh when we are together. I like to visit her and her kids. She has a nice home and it is enjoyable to help her around the house.
My babies are bigger again. Now, they are more cautious when I go to see them. In the past, they would put their heads up and sing and hope I would give them something to eat, but now they sit quietly, look at me, and wait for their mama to come with a treat for them.
I planted another tree today! hehe Soon, I will have my own forest! I also put some tomato plants in the garden – but I probably won’t be here to enjoy them since I plan to go back to china. At least my brother can eat them and give some to friends and neighbors if there are too many.
