 The Forsythia have been blooming, and they sure are pretty this year.

The New Spinners

 The garden center has got new Wind Spinners. They are all so pretty. I love looking at them, but we have never had one.









Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

Or let the eagle tell where he's been?

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Two Birthday Girls

 On Friday we celebrated double birthdays! Mine and our oldest granddaughter Anne Marie. My gifts were this grandma mug.


It was filled with chocolates and a Hobby Lobby gift card. Plus flowers!


Here we are eating dinner. I'm not in this because I am the one snapping. The two youngest were sitting at another table.


Our granddaughter Dara in a contemplative mood.


Me with Jazz & Dara.


Phil & our son Mike seeing how tall each one is.


Jazz & Dara made kaleidoscopes from a craft kit, and decorated them. I managed to put the camera lens up to the eyepieces!





Anne Marie showed me this model online wearing the dress she is buying for prom.

Finally, the two birthday girls! She is so much taller than me now!

Sunday Sunset - Sunset In The Clouds

 






“Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

Ezekiel 1

The Answer

 I have the answer to what this was in yesterday's post. They were houses for beneficial insects or bees! Quite a few of you guessed!

Mystery Items

 I saw these in a store the other day. Does anyone care to guess what they are? I bet many of you will know. I will tell you in my next post!

Dollar Tree

 I went back to The Dollar Tree. They had new things! Still had the balloons under the ceiling, but different ones.


They had this pretty set of dishes, with even a matching oven mitt. 


And even matching glasses, with a pickup truck image.


And their special of the week.


What did I buy? I could not resist one of these big gnomes, in the color of our kitchen.



I've been shopping all my life and still have nothing to wear.

Sunday Sunset

 In order.









The gods had a picnic supper to-night
Sitting around a blazing fire—
I saw the smoke and rosy flame
Over in the west.
I wanted to watch them, but as I went nearer
They let the fire go out.


~P. P., "Sunset," Poems by Three Friends, 1924


Slothful

 You may remember awhile ago I posted a sloth that someone had carved from the tree in their front yard. Well, the sloth is now ready for Ha...
