Tuesday is normally my errand day,
but the house was so beautifully quiet with all the men
gone after a three day weekend that I decided to
stay home and savor the solitude.
I puttered around, did 6 loads of laundry,
vacuumed the entire house, did dishes, swept porches,
changed sheets, watered indoor plants and 
gave Nugget a good brushing.
The windows are open and a warm breeze is
wafting through the house.  The only sounds
are a few ticking clocks, the wind chime and
the church bells downtown every hour.
Lovely.  We're supposed to get rain later on.
I hope we do....I hear some thunder rumbles!

Memorial Day

Thanks to the stars who protect the stripes....
Especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

There's One In Every Bunch!

Whether it's people, pets, or even eggs,
there's always one difficult one!
Can you believe that egg?
Good thing it wasn't the first one I peeled
 or I might not have tried the others!
It was the devilish one in my deviled eggs. ha.

Strawberry Fields

Well, my strawberries are really a patch instead of a field.
A small patch.  But they're still blooming!
