August is so flowery here.
After a joyful Slip'n Slide time in the backyard yesterday, Miss Bug and Millie Rose made pie.
And someone is frying sausages in the Wendy house. I shall fry some sausages today. I had a delicious sausage roll in New Zealand. YUM! Now I must eat more sausages.
The wild sweet peas are beginning their bloom! Yay!
I have a new caring book. It's good so far.
Today I am going to get my toes painted (and pampered) because in the summer it is very difficult to wear shoes. Hot. I think I shall shop for a new purse, too. I need a shoulder strap for speedy airport walking. When I arrive in Seattle, I have a short time to scurry to my shuttle bus. I hope I make it.
We had a wonderful time last night gathered around our dining room table. It was our family girl time. We miss our April and wish she lived closer so she could come. First we colored (they were thrilled with the packages of markers I bought them). Next, we did a responsive reading from Psalm 139. We enjoyed a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. We listened to praise music, we colored more, we talked about how to love our Bible more and find Jesus in its pages. We shared our prayer requests, our joys, and what we're learning. We closed in prayer and Kelli, Jenny, and Christie went home. It was so life-giving. I slept like a baby.
Tomorrow I shall see my dear mama. YAY! She has a snazzy Mac computer, so all I need is my camera and my camera cord. Woot! Woot! You'll LOVE the lovely valley scenes!
Take care, sweet soul. You really are a precious being, so YOU and so spunky.
Thank you for popping by to say hello.
