Monday Night

The heat and humidity is building here, while those west of us are experiencing everything from snow to floods to tornadoes.  The weather seems to get more severe every month.

The baby chicks are doing well.  Jordan and his mom have been over many times today to check on them.  They are still so cute, but once their feathers appear they will become gangly and not so cute.

I hope your Monday had some kindness in it, I hoped you laughed out loud and maybe even got a hug today.  If not today, then maybe tomorrow.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Bounty Continues

The blue bounty continued today.  We picked another basket of blueberries...yummy.
My sister and her daughters and granddaughter and great grandson dropped by this afternoon.
They got to carry a little of the bounty home with them, blueberries, peppers and green onions.

Rick harvested our first quart of honey today.  It is very light and flavorful.  And then Jordan arrived with his baby chicks.  The chicks are a 4H project, in the fall he will attend an auction with three of them and keep the rest.  He has named the chicks, all 18 of them.  He will struggle when it is time to pick three for auction.

Finally this evening we did a short practice for a gig coming up.  We are being filmed and interviewed for a music show.  We are excited and hopefully once it is edited we can share it on our blogs.

I only got about half of my list done today, but maybe tomorrow will be  more productive.
May is quickly coming to an end, June is waiting  with her heat and humidity.  She is so impatient that she is sending some our way this week.  Stay hydrated, stay cool and don't overheat.
Be kind.

Blue Bounty

Our blueberries have started to ripen.  Big juicy sweet berries, big as my thumb and our bushes are hanging full.  Jordan came over this morning to help work on the chicken pen, then he helped me pick.  As always he ate as many as he picked.  He also took home half a lemon pound cake I made yesterday.  His  mom said he was in hog heaven.  I doubt there is any cake left tonight.

Once again it has been a busy full day, but a good one.  We met our friends Danny and Jo Francis for dinner tonight and as always they were delightful. By the way, we only picked berries from three bushes, there will be just as many to pick again tomorrow.

Enjoy your Sunday, be kind and spread joy.

Busy Continues

Another busy day, starting early this morning and continuing into this evening.  Hot tea and bed are calling to me.

Tomorrow calls for gardening, a visit with my sister for her birthday and dinner with friends. 
I figure more things will pop up as the day goes by, but I am getting use to it.  I do know that Jordan is coming over to help Rick finish the chicken pen and probably pick a few blueberries.
He eats more than he puts in the basket.

I hope your Friday was a nice ending to your workweek and that the weekend holds a few surprises.
Good ones of course.  Be kind, share joy.

It has been one of those days, non-stop from getting out of bed to now.  Rick is making hot tea and I keep telling myself to drink my tea and then hit the bed.  Not a bad day, just an extremely busy one.
For some reason, more and more of my days seem to be non-stop.  Fingers are crossed for a peaceful weekend.

The first part of the week the weather was perfection, but the heat and humidity are building.  Maybe the waxing moon has something to do with it or the fact that it is time for heat and humidity in Alabama.

My pain management class went well today.  The patients seem to really enjoy the classes, both the material and how it is presented along with the asanas. 

The tea is ready and so am I.  Here's to a Friday that brings closure, peace and joy.

Around these parts, she is common.  Often found on the side of country roads, at old home places or farms, I have them growing in our yard.  I love them.  They just always look so happy and their lives are so short.  They bloom this morning, gone lilies.  You are seeing our first orange of the season.  Some of my mom's hybrids bloomed last week, but this one is the common one.  She found her way into the house and is now hanging with a pitcher of oak leaf hydrangeas.

Kitchen Window

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen.  It is very small and narrow with a window over the sink.  Through the window I see the back yard where the garden, fruit trees and flowers grow.  In the winter when there are no leaves on the trees you can see the old farmhouse.

I try to keep the window and the kitchen a cheery place, even though it is small.  For me, the kitchen is the heart of the home and every meal is an act of love.

I share a corner of my kitchen window with you tonight.  I think it is down right inviting.
