This sweet little girl finch has been eating on our deck rail for the last few days.
She appears to be the only one that sees this bowl... it has nyger seed and some mixed seeds.
I had cute, cute pictures of her stretching her wings yesterday... but I appear to have lost them.
Sort of like how I lost my phone today.
Yes, it's gone.
I'm going to try to tough the next four days out, it takes that long to get another from the insurance company.
(found 'em! I could just hear her saying "Uhhhhhh" as she stretched. She stretched both wings and both legs!)
I made a cake from scratch this afternoon. It was a butter-less cake, made with mayonnaise... it
came out beautifully. It is for a funeral tomorrow at church, for the after luncheon.
I SIFTED for the first time in ten years!!! I still have a sifter!
Crushed oreos on top.
I'm going to make another for us in a few weeks.
Even though it's hot out now, Jester likes to lay on the porch off and on.
As well as the bed in the spare bedroom!
It's too bad the lilies have such a short life, but this week has just been wonderful for them.
I have never, EVER seen as many dragonflies as I have this year.
There were actually another six or so out of camera range... same wall.
More were flitting around.
I don't ever remember this many... I love to watch them. Is it because of all the rain?
These beautiful roses are blooming in a pasture down the street from us... wildings... and there are three big clumps.
I had to back up and see these cosmos as I drove along today!
I don't know how they got on the roadside, but WOW!
There has been so much sadness in our world again today, after
last night's terrible crimes in South Carolina. I prayed all day for the
families of the poor people killed, and also for the family of the
young man, sick as he must be. I hope everyone can remember
these people in their prayers tonight. I am so blessed to not have anything like this
in our lives.
