Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
It's "I Like Thursday" and as usual, a number of try to infuse the internet with a bit of positive energy to balance all the chaos that surrounds us. For more sweet posts, see LeeAnna at "Not Afraid of Color" and the rest of us that share happy thoughts.
I like sleeping puppies:
Scout is a handful but she is learning a little each day. Most of the time her naughty antics are the fault of whichever parent is in charge. However, I would be lying if I didn't tell you that most of the time the song that is going through my mind is "Memo to My Son" by
What have you done to the mirror?
What have you done to the floor?
Can't I go nowhere without you?
Can't I leave you alone any more?
Scout's social life continues to grow. There are neighbor children that now come to visit her.
In the evenings we take Scout to play with Greta. Scout is feeling her oats and she was getting a little mouthy and brazen one night, so my Mom grabbed a broom and Scout backed off. This has become a thing. Nobody hits her but she realizes that folks are armed (I'm the only one that doesn't need to be, she knows bettter). I was laughing my head off the other night, when I turned around and realized that Carol, Mom, and Kathy were all armed...
I like fresh herbs! This week hubby decided to build a vertical herb garden. I garden he builds and that suits me fine. He picked the colors he liked and even decided on what color hanging plant he wants. Yeh for fresh herbs!
I like that the legacy of Thunky Ball continues. What is Thunky ball?
It was a ball that fell in our yard when the George kids were playing. Teddy found it and thought it had come from heaven :D The kids were kind enough to let Ted keep it.Ted might not have liked most balls but he LOVED thunky ball. It has and had very little air in it which is why it sounded like "Thunk" when you threw it. After he passed, we put it on a special post in the garden as a tribute to him. It wasn't until this past week when even thought about it.
We must have had some cats in the backyard and a lot of things were topsy turvy....and Scout found Thunky ball. She now also thinks it was sent from heaven as her special ball :)
The garden continues to please and hopefully the weather will be a bit cooler so I can weed this weekend.
Have a wonderful day!
