As I started up our long driveway on the way back from dropping g-son at school this morning I saw this large hawk watching me as I drove closer. I had to make this pic through the windshield so it isn't very clear but I think it is a Coopers Hawk which are fairly common around here.
After chores and breakfast I walked in the bottom pasture. The skies are starting to get cloudy ahead of the front that is headed here to bring rain later tonight and tomorrow.
This is the bloomers around my yard today.
I have several varieties of Iris that are in full bloom now.
After lunch the clouds had taken over the sky but the temperature of low 70's was so nice I had to spend some time outside doing some yardwork and filling in some holes the dogs have dug around the foundation of our house chasing ground squirrels.
Our renter Rebecca is on schedule to go back to work tonight if they need her and since her new baby girl is going to spend time with me until her dad gets home from work I decided to get some caramel cakes iced early today.
She called and said thankfully there isn't enough patients for her to be needed yet,she was happy.
After I got the evening chores done and sat outside to relax for a while #2 son called and asked if I would bring his jeep title to a nearby dealership where he was trading it for a Toyota Tacoma pick-up.
Since he discovered the excessive oil usage in his jeep motor and found out online that this was a problem with the motor he had he has been looking at these trucks. We found a petition on line with over 600 jeep owner signatures that were having the exact same problem he was. Many of them had been told by their jeep dealers that one quart every 1000 miles was normal usage!!!
This is the truck he traded for,it is exactly the color he wanted and has a straight drive transmission.
Thanking God tonight for all the blessings of His glorious creations.
Good Night and God Bless.
