A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

The Wonders and Perils of Nature!

Last night, after Relay for Life, we heard "air raid" sirens--as they used to be called--shouting their warning for what seemed like an eternity. I don't recall having heard them except for testing at noon on Saturdays. Tuning in to a local station we found a tornado warning for our immediate area. Orange sky at night; a downpour, thunder and lightening; then a change in the sky's color. Basement, here I come! Oh, but "Mr. Tough Guy" thought I was funny. Someday... Needless to say, a tornado touched down about 15 minutes from our home and another about 30 minutes away. Hmmm!

A baby groundhog ambled up our backyard sidewalk a few minutes ago and scurried into a vacant, built-in doghouse as he spied me heading in his direction. Meanwhile, a beautiful dove observed, peacefully; a couple of butterflies flitted around the flowers; a dragonfly landed on some ledge rock and a hummingbird suspended itself above flowers at the base of my clematis and me, without my camera! Five minutes of my life to take in the wonder of God's creation. There's nothing quite like it, being in and among the elements of Mother Nature. So blessed, we are.
