Miss Bug is wearing an old dress that belonged to my mother-in-law when SHE was a baby. I came upon it this morning when I "thought" about tidying a drawer. Doesn't Miss Bug look like a little cupcake in it?
Look at that high kick! Birdie and I had some quiet time in the family room while Miss Bug took her nap in Grampy's office. We played and ate gold fish crackers and popcorn. We watched The Princess and the Frog. But MOST of the day, Birdie busied herself outdoors.
What was I thinking? It's going to take me DAYS to plant all the yellow snapdragons and the taller pink snapdragons.
Digging and raking up the dirt, pouring water in the holes, gently placing the plants in the earth - it's FUN! I planted the wildflower seeds Libby Q sent me. I put morning glory seeds near the rock wall. I had a daisy looking zinnia package and I poked holes in the dirt and dropped the seeds in, one by one. I found yellow petunias and now I must say that this summer is going to be yellow. Oh, I love home. Tomorrow, all the kids and grandchildren are coming for lunch. We'll fill the blue pool, grill burgers, eat lemon cake and say a big, "Hey, Summer! Come on over to our house!"
And one more thing to mention in a quiet, respectful voice . . . thank you to all the soldiers.
