Monday starts with Sneezes – September 9th


I sit here at my desk, sniffling and sneezing. The pollen is so high that it no amount of allergy medicine will help. In fact it’s one of the only things I like about winter, because finally no pollen or mold or whatever else is out there. I’m a little bit whiny today, but at least it’s honest.
I do hope that wherever you are it is a glorious blue skied day. It is here in my corner of the world, just a lovely day. We have gotten to the season of beautiful and very colorful sunsets and sunrises. The last few evening have been absolutely spectacular. It is so nice to be able to see them from the second floor of the new house. I have to say, I dearly love who provided this place, and that even in the midst of a season of change he is never changing!

Have a very blessed day!

Measure Me, Sky – June 17th


Measure Me, Sky by Leonora Speyer

Measure me, sky!
Tell me I reach by a song
Nearer the stars;
I have been little so long.

Weigh me, high wind!
What will your wild scales record?
Profit of pain,
Joy by the weight of a word.

Horizon, reach out!
Catch at my hands, stretch me taut,
Rim of the world:
Widen my eyes by a thought.

Sky, be my depth,
Wind, be my width and my height,
World, my heart’s span;
Loveliness, wings for my flight.


Beautiful Butterflies, Series 13 – June 16th


Today’s butterflies is the Red Admiral Butterfly. Really very pretty!


They enjoy eating sap instead of butterflies.


They can be anywhere from red to orange, and have beautiful patterns on each side of their wings.


Have a great day!
