Good morning to all of you! We're getting lots of rain here in Kansas City, which is such a blessing for the garden we put in. I'm so thankful that we're getting rain instead of snow, which is usually what I got for my birthday in Idaho! :)
Audrey made us a lovely birthday pudding with strawberries, tapioca, and kefir (she cooked the tapioca by itself, then added the kefir to keep the bacteria alive.).
Mr. Graham surprised me with a beautiful lily and rose bouquet that smells heavenly!
We're spending today at home, playing with the chickens and hanging up the suet, thistle seeds, and hummingbird feeders that I bought myself with my birthday. I also bought a big old china cupboard to use as an art cupboard, which I will share with you after we get it fixed up and painted nice.
Some chickens are more photogenic than others!
Frankie says he's going to write a book for me when he's bigger. It will be about Jesus and be called "I Know I'm Superman!" :)
The poke in our yard is finally coming up~
And the grapevines on the fence are leafing out, too~
We found this heart in our front yard, too~ Love is everywhere you find it!
A birthday is a wonderful time for reflecting on one's life purpose, and for writing down ideas and goals for achieving that purpose. This year I am going to focus on beginning to write down all the books, songs, poems, stories, etc. that have been floating around in my head forever, and start publishing them for real. :) I feel very blessed to be given another year of life on this beautiful earth, and am so grateful to be sharing it with my sweet family, and you!
May you have a wonderful day.
Blessings and love to all,
