Blue Bird


Yes, I know, I have another bird picture but I couldn’t help myself.  He and the Mrs. come every morning to our catawba tree.  They swoop down get a bite of something and go back up to their limb.  It is always entertaining to watch.  Sorry about the flash glare that is present in his eye.  I did not know how to correct that.  Anyway, the picture shows how brilliant his color his.

We had some major storms come through here last night.    Jess called to tell us we had a tornado warning for our area.  Thank the Lord, that didn’t happen.  We did have lots of lightning and some rain.  This morning is calm but the fog is very thick.  Grace tells me she likes fog so today will be her kind of day.  We are supposed to go do our annual spring cleaning at church today.  I’m not sure if we will still be doing it or not.  We could clean inside but I don’t think we will be doing any outside cleaning. 

Yesterday we went to pick up Grace’s new glasses.  We did a little shopping in Sam’s and then came on home.  I didn’t want to overdue as Grace is still not back to 100 percent.  Hopefully today she will be feeling much better.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

A Cozy Corner


This is a corner in what we call the “sitting room”.  It is a wonderful place to sit and read or look out the window and just rest.  Remember yesterday when I said our wind was not too aggressive, well, that certainly did change.  By lunch, we had 40 to 45 mph wind.  By afternoon, 50 mph and by the time we went to bed 65 to 70 mph.   Needless to say, we did not get any outside time.  Too windy.  We did walk down to the barn to get milk.  It was just too much wind to do anything.    Before we went to bed the rain started.  It rained most of the night with lots of lightning.   When we got up this morning, our temperature was 51 degrees.   In less than 2 hours, our temperature has dropped down to 36 degrees.  Big change.  I may soon have to build a fire.   Hopefully, things will warm up after today.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
