Today started off dreary and drizzly but steamy hot,yuck !!
#1 son called at 7:30 to tell me the man who bought his trailer would be here soon. Son was headed to Asheville to doctors appointments today and asked if I would make sure the buyer had everything he needed.
He arrived at 8:30 and skillfully got the trailer hooked up and away he went. I finished chores and came inside to have breakfast. Already sweating at 8:30 in the morning,you know it is going to be a miserable day.
I cleaned floors all morning waiting for g-son to arrive. D-in-love brought him after 11 so I was finished with the floors and they were dry so that worked out well.
I did a couple more loads of month ending linen laundry still holding out on the rugs until I can hang them outside.
G-son was really subdued today,didn't really want to do much but watch cartoons.
I grabbed my camera to photograph a Carolina Wren building a nest in a gourd outside the living room window when he said " aren't you going to take a picture of me?"
Together we watched as mama Wren carried long sticks and gently worked them through the hole into the gourd.G-son wants to fly like the wren. He said if God would lift him up on the clouds he could fly back down. I remember wanting to fly when I was young,running around with my arms held straight out in hopes that my feet would leave the ground behind.
I went to the back to see if any hummingbirds had taken advantage of their new feeder.As I looked around I soon discovered why they weren't at the feeder.
I watched as several hummers flitted about the sweet Mimosa blooms slurping up the nectar.
Glad I choose this time to come outside looking for these little guys,I got some great pics.
The rains returned this evening with some lightening and thunder not to far away. I hurried through chores before I got too wet.
G-son stayed here while his mom and dad went to Bible study at church.
I did all my weekly paperwork and bill paying while waiting for the storm to pass,I don't like to be in the kitchen with the stove going while it's storming.
I iced caramel,chocolate and coconut cakes tonight,wrapped and labeled everything ready for market.
My back is hurting tonight along with one of my ankles. I know why my ankle is hurting as I smacked it into a rocking chair rocker while sweeping off the porch this afternoon. But my back I don't know why it is hurting,maybe all the vacuuming, sweeping and mopping I did this morning.
Thanking God for the many blessings of today.
Good Night and God Bless.
