She's a Dreamer.
A Doer
A Thinker
She sees possibilities

It's been a delightful weekend.
The weather has been perfect
and we spent most of it outdoors.

My favorite girl spent Friday
night and all day Saturday with
me [an early (Olie,)Mother's Day
for me.

We picked honeysuckles and made

Walked all over the property
collecting samples of moss that she
had learned about on a field trip.

She made a tasty mint- lemonade
that she created for her Pappy.

Moved chicken's around and
played with dogs.

Saturday night I was in bed by 9:30!

Sunday has been a trip to the market,
stocking up so I don't have to go back
for several weeks .

Swinging gentle in the hammock,
reading my book, trying to add
a little color to my pale legs, and
I think I might have napped a wee

Dinner is roasted vegetable salads
topped with sprouted quinoa and then
I will knit the night away.

Have an excellent start to your week.
