Glorious Mornings

  Every morning is a beautiful morning. 

I am much a "morning glory" type of person. I am at my best in the mornings and ready to jumpstart my day.

The Valley of Love and Delight

'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free,
'Tis a gift to come round to where we ought to be. 
And when we find a place that feels just right, 
We will be in the valley of love and delight. 
~ Appalachian Folk Song

Well...... it is official. I am a mother of a Senior and a Sophomore in high school. Today was their first day of school for this new year. I woke up in the middle of the night last night more than just a little upset. My babies are growing up so fast. Even as I type this I have tears in my eyes. Why is it so hard to see them grow up? I am sure I will be a basketcase when they go off to college. Thankfully, my son is hoping to go locally and stay at home. I don't think I could handle him leaving! They have both grown closer to each other over the summer. I can see that they are growing as friends as well as siblings. I am so thankful that God has blessed me with such wonderful children.
I love them a LOT!


Male Hummingbird

This is the first picture of a male hummingbird that I've been able to capture this year. I've seen a lot of females but few males. The females started coming to our feeder around the end of April/beginning of May. A male started visiting us at the beginning of August. Now we have about 6 (male and female) that frequent our feeder. They are a sight to see! And Very protective of the food source. I was out at lunch snapping a few pictures and they even buzzed our dog Yoshi. Of course, he thought it was a fly and tried to catch it. Good thing they are fast!
