Ron brought these home this week. It really has to be my favorite flower. I have stopped and sniffed them so many times, that is all I smell. Though, I admit that I asked for a new hula hoe for Valentines Day. Mine is almost completely worn though the metal. He is going to buy himself one too. So nice to get his and hers hula hoes for a present.

I can always use green. Still it was not what I was going for, I haven't the nerve to try it again. Yet.
One thing that is so blissful about right now is for years and I mean for years, I couldn't sit outside and stitch anything. So this marks the first year I can sit out side, and let my chickens out and watch them and sew. You see why I have been letting them out is a skunk had the nerve to move inside the fence, in the backyard, and move under my hen house. I have let them out during the day so as to not have them trapped inside with a skunk if it decided to dig out into the yard. I have been waking up thinking of ways to get it out. I did think how fun it might be if I could just put some fire crackers under there and see what happens. Ron said, " It would spray and then you would have a terrible time."
Stomping and yelling on the coop floor has not worked. You know though, if it is a girl and has babies, I am going to keep one.
Anyway, it is Friday, I thought I would write one of those thinking deeply posts, but as I said at the beginning, I have the attention span of a gnat right now.
Have a great weekend,
We ponder God's withholding or bestowing.
And while we pine for what was never given and
what was taken.
While today slips through our fingers."
