Hello my peeps!
I hope everyone has had an enjoyable week.
It sounds as if we are in for a fabulous weekend, weather-wise...
...temps barely reaching 80 degrees, no humidity and plenty of sunshine!
I plan to savor every moment because I'm pretty sure it will not last long.
So another year has rolled around and tomorrow will mark my third year of blogging!
It's funny...sometimes it seems like it's been much longer than that...
...at other times I still feel like such a newbie.
I am very grateful for each and every one of you who pop in to see what I'm up to!
This past year has had it's share of trials and tribulations and I thank you all for your prayers.
But oh, what wonderful blessings as well and I thank you for rejoicing with me!
And if you know anything about me at all,
you surely must know that it's the simple things in life that make me happy...
...it just doesn't take much.
They say diamonds are a girl's best friend...
...but although I do have a few (nothing extravagant, mind you) and am quite fond of them,
watching a butterfly light on a thistle just delights my heart.
Or sneaking up on a dragonfly, getting so close you can almost reach out and touch it...
...now that's exciting!
Here a few more shots taken over the past week of some more of my favorite things.
Snapdragons...they remind me of my dear sweet mother...
A Ruby-throated hummingbird...some of our Lord's best handiwork...
Queen Anne's Lace...
such a delicate masterpiece!
And did I ever tell you how much I adore milk thistles?
Surely I have...I'm almost positive :)
Milkweed blooms and bumble bees...
...more butterflies on more thistles...
...and a little Picmonkey mirror-image fun.
Just a few of my simple pleasures.
There are many more where they came from :)
Thank you again for hangin' around to see what year four has in store.
Hugs to all!
