Thoughts on Saturday Morning
Summer is finally here. The kids are swimming.
The water is warm enough that I am not
worried about hypothermia any more. I was watching
my two boys. They spend more time fighting and
wrestling than they do swimming. Being a girl,
I still ponder boys. My husband says, "roosters
must be roosters."
I remember after I had been a mother for awhile,
I had 4 boys and they had done something that
boys love to do I don't remember what, when it
dawned on me, my husband used to be a boy.
I have never been accused of being a rocket
Oh the picture above is one of the sunflowers that
came up during the spring and I thought it was very pretty.
This next picture is what it looks like now.
It was chomped. We have these large green parrots,
their favorite food is sunflowers. There are flocks of
them now and every morning they are out here,
in the trees and eating sunflowers. They just bite
the head off the sunflower and then fly to another branch
and sit and eat it all up.
They also like plums and they will sit in my plum trees
and eat the plums that grow high on the branches.
This morning they were sitting on the power lines,
waiting for me to leave so they could devour some more
sunflowers. I can't ever get close enough to take a picture,
that will be a summer time goal to capture one on film.
I hope you have a lovely, summer, June day.
I will be working in the garden and loving all of the warm
"Then I will give them a heart to know Me,
that I am the Lord."
