Purple Rockets

These purple rockets are growing in my wild flower garden on the west side of our house.

J and spent most of last week in Nebraska. We had a good trip going to see my folks and enjoyed time away from our everyday life. Mom and Dad are doing well. We also got to see Aunt Janet and UB, Aunt Betty and Uncle Leon and several neighbors too! Look for pictures from our trip next week.

For Mother’s Day Mom requested the Poldark series by Winston Graham. She told me about the excellent PBS television show and wanted to read the novels. She was so excited about the books that I decided to read them too. I have read the first novel and am half way through the second. I’d love to see the PBS version and hear it’s very close to the book version.

This is my Lesson 3 project for Consider Birds. We learned couple new techniques on this piece. Jodi suggested scrapbook paper or card stock to add texture. I usually don’t use heavy card stock, so I made us of my collection of paint card samples. Crackle paste is how we made the birdie. I thought the crackle paste was fun and see more use of it in future projects.

1 Peter 5: 6-7 and 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 were the inspirations for my prayer:

Dear Lord,

I humble myself under your guiding hand,that You may help me to not be anxious.

I cast my anxieties upon You.I pray to tell you all about my worries,for I know you can handle it.

I also know you care for me.That you want me to have peace of mind and to know your healing ways. To know you are my strength and I shall not fear.

I will rejoice in You, Lord. I will pray continually and give thanks for everything.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Sounds like J wants to get started preparing hay equipment. I have intentions to do some baking, continue working through Consider Birds and I have a Women in Ag meeting at the end of the week.

After some time off the ranch to rest and rejuvenate, J and I feel refreshed and ready for summer. My June is off to a great start, how about you?

    I love the purple flowers! Your art project turned out well. I am dragging today after being at a church conference most of last week. You wouldn’t think that sitting through meetings would be so tiring, but it must have been.

    Enjoyed your visit but went too fast. Love the purple flowers! Your art is beautiful.

    You find such beautiful flowers, Robyn! I’m glad you had a chance to get away for a break before haying starts. June is off and running here…but today is a little slower and simple beautiful outside. Low humidity, birds chirping outside the window as I type, a gently breeze. If only it could stay like this all summer! Have a great week!

    I haven wanted to watch Poldark, but keep missing it. I’m sure I can find it at the library. PBS has such wonderful movies/series!

    Your “west side” flowers are refreshing and so pretty. We’ve had a little more than a week of straight triple digit weather with no break… and on my patio, I have two mama doves nesting side-by-side with just a small partition between them…I hope they are good neighbors!! There are “cooling stations” open in our town for the homeless (and others) so get out of the extreme heat….too bad they aren’t open 24-hours a day. But, at least, there is a place folks can go in the worst heat of the day. They have also opened the wading pools in several parks for children to be able to cool-off. We have lots of different kinds of birds in our neighborhood, and I can always tell when the heat has been too much for them; they sit with their beaks open trying to get air, I suppose. I keep a huge bowl of cool water in the shade of my patio for any critter, cat or bird that might come along. I keep hearing my mother telling me, “Pam, you can’t save the whole world.” Well, darn it! I’d like to try. LOL …. enjoy your June. I had a birthday June 6th, and it was a nice one, but let’s not talk numbers.

      Happy Belated Birthday, Miss Pam! Glad you had a good day.

      Oh so hot this early in the summer, not fun. We had a few hot days towards the end of last week, 97-100*. Sunday morning was a windy 66* and today is in the mid 80’s. They say we have a chance for rain tonight, I see the sky getting gray.

      I’m almost done mowing and needed a drink of water and cool down. Not much to mow as the grass has turned brown since the last mowing.

      Is it fun to watch the mama doves? You’ll have to let me know if they are good neighbors.

      We usually think about getting the homeless out of the cold. I’ve never really thought about the extreme heat. I’m glad they have the option to visit cooling stations.

      Take care of yourself and the little animals or birds!

  6. Your wild flowers are pretty and I love your artwork. I’m glad your summer is off to a great start- ours is starting to be better without all the rain. Have a blessed Sunday!
