Short Burst of Summer

We’ve been enjoying and taking advantage of unbelievably warm weather. The crocuses are done, daffodils and forsythia in full bloom, tulips, standing tall and budding up. Tom mowed the grass. Together we took the winter cover off the pool. I’ve washed windows and cleaned the porch. And it’s not yet April. Unbelievable. And I’m loving it. The weatherman says as of today, it’s over, the mercury is falling, so is rain.

But a couple of days ago these little girls thought we should open the bin full of pool toys. Water wings, goggles, and a couple buckets of water kept the little tykes busy while I cleaned the porch and washed windows. Fun for everyone! (Yeah, I actually like washing windows.)

You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth.

“You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth.”   Ecclesiastes 11:9



“Whatever you do, do it wholeheartedly, as if working (or playing?) for the Lord…”  Col. 3:23

And the primrose await planting…

  2. Well, good! Then I'll go back and subscribe to yours…I hovered over the button thinking 2 things. 1. Did I already subscribe? and 2. Would Sarah think I'm too old to be befriending her? (Silly, huh? But even we older women have our insecurities.)
