The Babies

Robins built a nest right outside our living room window. They hatched and raised babies, and we had a front row seat! Unfortunately they were on the other side of double glass panes. I did my best to edit the pictures so they would show up better. So here is their journey!







I heard the sweet voice of a robin,
      High up in the maple tree,
      Joyously, singing his happy song
      To his feathered mate, in glee!...
If we could be like this tiny bird,
      Just living from day to day,
      Holding no bitterness in our hearts
      For those we meet on our way...

The Heat

Our vet's big bulletin board always has timely and crafty things on it. Here is one to remember about your pets when it is very hot outside.

The One on the Throne will pitch his tent there for them: no more hunger, no more thirst, no more scorching heat... And God will wipe every last tear from their eyes.”

Giant Potato Day!

Once a year, the giant potato stops here on it's tour of the states, and today was the day! It weighs over 12,000 pounds! No, it is not real. Since today was the last day of school, we took two of the girls and made a day of it!



They had a craft booth where you could make your own potato head.

Then we went inside to cool off and have ice-cream.


The jukebox was free to play!


Then we went back to feed the goats.

And finally to a large thrift store, where Anne Marie found a long summer jumper and Jazz got an Easy Bake Oven. As soon as we got home, I put my feet up!


“These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.

Hospital Farmer's Market

Today we went to the hospital to see Ruth and bring her the pictures of her peonies. What a shock to see that there was a farmer's market set up in the lobby of the hospital!! Something I have never seen before. Quite a few of the nurses and employees were buying bags of vegetables. Well, I guess healthy eating goes hand in hand with health care. Thoughts?
