Not a Squirrel This Time

 I thought another squirrel was after my bird feed, but look what I caught.  Oh, dear!

He could get a lot of corn.  🤣 Rehomed him over the mt. and through the woods.  Hope hcan’t find his way back.

Mimosa Blooms


Phinnie and I spy two critters down the lane.  They spy us as well.  Looking back to see…

Mimosas are full of blooms

Lilies Still

Tiger and these Forgotten Dreams day lilies are blooming even though we have had no rain in weeks.



Ingrid took these on Captiva Island.  What a beautiful sunset.

Big Day For Sig

Sigrid had surgery today.  At first she said I couldn’t mention it, but then she had a change of heart.  She’s 17.  The surgery was breast reduction.  She went from an f-g size to a C today.  She looking forward to normal size bras and buying tops to wear.  She wore a lot of sweatshirts to hide under. 
This is what the Dr. removed.  Over 2 pounds.
She was really scared.

She’s home and recovering.  I hope this brightens her future and outlook on life in general.

Indian Blanket Sunflower

This is a perennial.  I think it’s really special.


New Test

 News today says if one can’t detect the odor of peanut butter with your left nostril, it may indicate Alzheimer’s disease.  Place a ruler between jar and nostril.   The team found that the odor detection distance of AD patients’ left nostril (5.1cm), and not their right (17.4cm), was much less than the other groups.  5 cm is about 2 inches.  17.4 is almost 6 inches.  The difference in the two is the key.  The disease affects portions of the olfactory cortex.  The initial sites of AD pathology and patients with AD often have more degeneration of their left than the right hemisphere.  Very interesting….

Happy Birthday

My little Grandson is 6’2” and 14 today.  Where did all the time go.  Happy birthday!


Road Block


Lil Red is home and heat or no,

off we go to walk.  I hit a few road blocks, better called road flocks.

Goosey goosey gander,

Whither shall I wander?

Upstairs and downstairs,

And in my lady’s chamber.

There I met an old man,

Who wouldn’t say his prayers,

So I took him by his left leg,

And threw him down the stair.

Day is Done

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Another day has passed.  I’m still here.  Doing my little things that add up to nothing.  I am thankful for all the Lord has allowed me to see and do in my lifetime.  I am but a grain of sand.  Not much.

Heated Walk


What I saw as I marched along to the beat of rising heat—part of blue jay egg, hawk feathers, a man fishing in a little boat, thistle,  a spider waiting to grab me in his web and sumac in bloom.    The hay field will soon be harvested.  It may be 100 today!  Growing up we had one fan.  I have several and central air.  Thankful for my little corner of His world.  

Psalm 9:1  I give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart…
