    Mama Ruth’s granddaughter got married last night. It was a beautiful wedding with a coffee bar, cake, cookies, and appetizers.
    You all know how much I hate of that a photo of myself but I am trying to get over it. This photo is of my two “sisters”. As you know they tease each other that “Mother loved me more. No. She loved ME more. I always win by saying, “Obviously she loved me more. She had to take what she got with you but she chose me”.

  3. If all three photos are available there is a picture of the bride’s bouquet. The cross that is seen to the ribbon is the cross Mama Ruth gave me years ago. The ring bearer carried in Mama Ruth’s Bible, and for the bridesmaid luncheon yesterday I used all the Rosepoint glassware she bought me over the years.

  4. Those are bleeding hearts, and they are very prolific. These seeded themselves (so to speak) by some back steps. I have one bunch self-seeded that are pure white. I got the original plant from my mother. I have one daughter that also has taken one plant and finds they spread easily.

    We had a bit of rain and may get more. Everyone I talked to was thrilled with the beautiful days we have recently had.

  5. Someone mentioned Judy Garland’s birthday the other day. She was born in a small town not too far away and they have a Judy Garland Museum. The person was concerned that it would be awful busy in town during the time we are planning at being at a bluegrass festival there.

    I remember watching Judy on television with my mom. She was such a talented person. Her life was sad, though. That seems to be the case for many stars, unfortunately.

  6. Lovely header. It’s great when plants reseed.

    A friend stopped by with two Duck donuts to brighten my day, and we were looking at the yard plantings. We were discussing the plants that reseed themselves in my front yard, in particular the yellow passionflower, and the tiger lilies.

    I had Word Weavers at a new location this morning. Such a pleasant church where long ago Wesley had homeschool Classes. We had a guy from the church join us. He was very knowledgable and fit right in.

  7. Kathaleena, you have so many plants/trees that we have up here. What plant zone are you in? We’re in Zone 2 – some zone 3 plants do survive the winter with extra care.

  8. A nice visit in Moscow yesterday. I even got my dad to go for a walk, without any hesitation! I told him daughter would sit with grandma and if she needed any thing, she could call us because we would not be going far. We made it about two driveways but we did it and I see I need to get him a new walker. His is jury rigged with wire but rather wobbly and unsteady. The wheels go this way and that.

  9. Answered prayer: I get to be in church for the 5th Sunday in a row! In April and May I had to work 4 of 5 Sundays in a row, so I asked the Lord to change that, and he has.

  10. Another really good sermon today, still focusing on the Holy Spirit. Today it was about the Holy Spirit’s role in sanctification. The pastor brought out that as believers when we have passed out of this life we are fully sanctified but on this side we are never at the point of full sanctification. We are daily letting the Spirit in us help us fight battles against the flesh that wars against sanctification. I am glad we are spending extra time on the Holy Spirit. There is always more to learn.

    Art did not attenx with me today. Clients are pressing to get their extensions done. He will take off to go with me for my appointment tomorrow.

  11. We had a very nice day yesterday, celebrating Chickadee’s birthday, which had been on Friday. If those of you who are my Facebook friend go to my page, you will find a post with photos of the food on the table and the cake on fire. 😄

    Boy had put on a bunch of various cake candles we had on hand to equal 30, not realizing that some were the trick kind that keep reigniting after being blown out. Some candles were so close together that they kind of joined, making the flames higher than usual. It was pretty funny.

    We called our dinner a cook-in, as opposed to a cookout, with bbq ribs, brats, potato salad, and deviled eggs. The cake was German Chocolate Cake. I put on the table a red and white tablecloth – which looks like a typical picnic table tablecloth.

    I’ll try posting the link to the photos, but since Nightingale is the one who took them and posted them, even though I shared them, I don’t know if non-Facebook friends would be able to see them.

  12. I thought I was a homebody. It has been weeks since I have stayed home an entire twenty four hours. Today was church, home, off to the circus. I dropped them off in the parking lot and went to the park for a few hours. The circus was a zoo. They had fun, I had fun. Win win.

  13. packing, packing and packing
    Perhaps you would like to guess what is in my suitcase??
    Some things are slightly unusual as I am not traveling, I am moving.
    And things that I wanted to ship home, did not work because shipping is simply not going through.
    So yes, there is some silverware. Ladies in my church gave me a 12 piece set years ago to bring here, I already took some home but now the rest is going.
    And a few kitchen tools, like my favorite spatula
    Also the small quilted wall hangings off the wall.
    Please pray that my luggage will go through. A friend’s luggage is lost, last seen in Doha. I am hoping to check it all the way to San Francisco.

  14. From what I have read, the Belgian Malinois is a different kind of dog than what most of us are used to, and needs an owner with special knowledge on how to train them.

  15. One of our deputy friends had a Malinois for his K9 drug dog, etc. He was very pleased with it but it did not last very long on the force due to health issues.

  16. After spending some time cleaning up after son who was taught to clean up after himself and leave the campsite cleaner than we found it, I am wondering if it would be okay to set up a separate guest room for guests with dogs. And a separate outdoor kennel for their furry friends. I have told them I don’t want their dogs here so son brought one and then two and now three. The dogs are not kept in kennels indoors so the guest room is a mud hair torn up stuff room. But he assured me they cleaned up after themselves. I would like to keep an area clean for people who come to visit (and the faucet useable) but welcome my children with misbehaving dogs. This time, a dachsund, a border collie/Aussie, a mastiff. I did suggest they take the mastiff in for training before they have a more serious problem.

  17. Mumsee, I debate that all the time too. I would love a little bunkie (cabin) on the property where the kids could stay with their dogs. Thankfully, their dogs are well-behaved but the extra hair is an issue. When the twins and their parents come for a visit in a couple of weeks, daughter will also come with her dog, but she wants to stay in her tent for night. I’m good with that. 🙂
