After chores and breakfast I took a walk around the farm to check out what was blooming now. I found these lovely Lilies starting to put out their nice big blossoms.
The Elderberries are blooming at all the birds delight for the delicious harvest of the small fruit.
Back inside I baked 6 caramel, 2 chocolate, 2 pound cakes before having lunch.
Hubbie came home again today at lunch to use some extra hours.
After lunch he went to work in the garden staking more tomatoes and cucumbers. I planted these "clearance specials" I picked up at Walmart yesterday.
I relaxed with Annie and Sadie and we watched it rain for over an hour.
The sun did manage to peek out a couple times after the 1/2 inch of rain fell to steam things up but the radar looked clear as daughter came by on her way to school to bring her baked goods.
After chores and supper hubbie and I sat out in the covered patio and heard the loud speaker at the school calling out the graduates so we knew even under the threatening skies they opted to stay outside.
I iced all my cakes and got things ready for market. Daughter called and said the graduation went well, the skies loomed dark but no rain fell until afterward thankfully. She was headed over to a venue they chose for their "project graduation" all night fun night for the graduates. She was amazed at all the food, money and countless items that had been donated by local business for this event. This event keeps the graduates in a safe place for at least one night of celebration and also gives them one more time of fun with their classmates.
Daughter and the other teachers will take shifts staying up with the kids, her shift is from midnight until 5am. She is going over early to help get set up and knowing her she will stay over to clean up. Praying for a safe, sleepy trip home in the morning.
Tonight I pray for my sister in law's family as they come to terms with the death of their husband, father, and grandfather. May God give the comfort they need during this time.
I am gratefully thankful for all my blessings of this day.
Good Night and God Bless
