Three Random Pictures

There will be no explanation for these because Jube is even now screaming at the top of his lungs. Later!

Snails, Flowers, and Jube


This was my picture of the snail. Dru has closer ups on his blog.

Look Mom, I found a flower!

The yellow flower wins.

Not an Angel

This child woke up at six o'clock this morning. I tried to put him back to bed. I worked at it for a whole hour. The only thing that happened was that he hollared so the neighbors could hear him. Pii Phone said so this morning when she came down and visited with the child through the gate. I put him on his dad's shoulders when I got tired of his whining. Once he finally was allowed up, all he wanted was to be held. He's asleep now. Stinker.

So Far Today…

I watched my baby toddle across the yard in his bare feet.

I did the dishes.

I prayed with my man.

I showed the neighbor girl how to make cookies.

I changed the sweeper bag and vacuumed my main floors.

I tidied upstairs.

I stumbled through two pages of Thai reading to my patient husband.

I journaled and read my Bible.

I planted some of my seeds from Mom.

I used up the bag of grass clippings from the last mowing for mulch.

So far, today has been a good Monday—which says something. Sunday was truly a day of rest for a change.

It’s cool outside and there is a very substantial cloud cover. It will probably rain, and Pii Phone says that it’s cold season now.

I am happy.
