G-son was here early this morning to have breakfast and get ready for another day at Cub scout camp.
I met his troop leader at a store just out the road so he could hitch a ride across town with her and her son.
After she picked him up I stopped by Walmart on the way home.
I did the chores and had breakfast then took a walk in the muggy,cloudy morning.  An overnight rain had left 4/10ths of an inch in the rain gauge and left the air laden with moisture this morning.
The rain seems to have brought things to life as I walked and noticed all the pretty blooms that popped out this morning.
The rain was evident on the leaves of the Voodoo Lilies.
Different colors of my Lilies are blooming in the front yard.

These pretty Morning Glories are one of my favorite morning sights.
The Hosta's are blooming.
Along with my Oakleaf Hydrangea.
To my surprise this transplanted Mountain Laurel in the bed with my Azaleas is blooming.
I'm sure the birds are keeping a close eye on these blooms that will soon turn into tasty Elderberries.
I love the early morning walks on days like today with all the beauty of early summer to enjoy.
Back inside I started laundry and housework.
Daughter came over here and Rebekah picked her up so they could take Evy swimming at the pool in the development that #2 son has a lot in.
The sun is peeking through the clouds and the cool morning is warming up so maybe they will have some warm sunshine while they are there.
I took several cake orders today to go along with an already large camp order I have for Thursday.
I changed out some decorations for the month of July today. I love these new placemats I found to go with my lighthouse theme out in the sunroom.
Some other summertime decor that I got out today included my shell collections.
These patriotic vases were purchases from my last Pickens flea market trip.

#1 son got home in time to pick g-son up from the drop-off point so hubbie and I watched the news and then did chores early to beat the rain that looks like it is headed our way.
Dolly is much better today and has slept most of the day to recoup her strength. She is eating and drinking normally again thankfully.
To get a headstart on all my orders I made 8 pound cakes tonight.
It is 11:30 and the last ones just came out of the ovens so I'm off to bed to rest up for another busy day tomorrow.
Grateful for the strength that God gives me each day and for His unending love or all His children.
Good Night and God Bless.

I bet your yard smells like heaven with all those flowers blooming. We have had a lot of rain lately and that has made the weeds grow like there's no tomorrow. Glad Dolly is feeling better. Blessings
