We brought BT over to our house when James and Noah went on vacation with their mom and dad. He was very nervous being in an unfamiliar place, so I sat on the sofa with him a lot. He's such a nice warm boy. He did like walking our neighborhood and did not pull on his leash. I really like him.
I realized that my turquoise sun hat makes me look funny. I think my baseball cap makes me look borderline bald😂, but it feels nice and snug. I have never looked very good in hats but I did notice that maybe similar to weighted blankets, a hat can make one feel safe. Remember how it says in Ephesians 6:17 "... take the helmet of salvation"? Above all, the helmet of salvation makes me feel safe forever!
The volunteer marigolds are so vibrant. The seeds rest in the dirt all winter and then pop up again around the garden. I appreciate them. Our flowerbeds are sort of wild and crazy this year.
In a little over a week I am going to fly up to Washington State to see my dear mama and my brothers (and their lovely wives). Flying is very different now. I can't wait to spend time with my mother in her new house and garden. What a sweet treat it will be!
August is hot here. Sometimes it's too hot to eat our dinner outside. My sinuses tend to ache this time of year. It's okay. The visual gift of sun-fed flowers and vegetables is breathtaking.
I hope you are well. Thank you for popping in to say hello!
