G-son didn't want to go back to sleep this morning so we got started early today. After chores and breakfast we took a walk.
He excitedly pointed out this beauty hunting for it's breakfast in the standing water of the bottom pastures. In his excitement this was as close as we got before he flew away !
These Bee Balm blooms are so fragrant.
I think he is looking forward to getting back into class everyday.
He went back inside to play games on my laptop while I stayed outside with my long handled pruning shears to clean some of the overgrowth from the yard and beds around the house.
After lunch we both went back outside to play under a now cloudy sky !!
We played ball and then rode around in the "hammock mobile" to other planets looking for zombies .
His dad picked him up and I finished 7 baby pillows from the ones I had cut out. I only had enough stuffing for 7 so I need a trip to Foam and Fabric in Fletcher soon.
I sat out in the sunroom for what I thought would be a short shower. About an hour and another 1 and 1/2" of rain later it slacked enough for me to put on a raincoat and get a flashlight to go up and shut up my chickens.
A slow moving system is causing more flash flooding around our area. Hopefully our creek will stay in its banks tonight. Talked to daughter during the rain storm,she was in Asheville where it wasn't even raining a drop.
This next photo could spell major trouble for any area of the rain soaked southeast this coming weekend as the 3rd named tropical storm heads our way.
Grateful to God for the blessings of this day and for God's grace in all that I do.
Good Night and God Bless.
