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:
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?
