Got up early this morning so that I could water the new lawn, and the pumpkins and okra before the sun got too hot and dried them out. Sat out on the back porch and watched the turtles enjoying a lazy stroll through the water...drinking, cleaning parts and pieces as they go. Listening to the hummingbirds discuss which feeder has the best nectar available or whatever other nonsense they chatter about, knowing that the temperature will be right at 100 by 4:30 - 5:00 o'clock this afternoon. Seemed as though we all had the same thought....git while the gittin's good.
I came in and began working on squeezing key limes for pie (thanks Janine). Bout that time GK and Ry came in for breakfast and so began the day. GK helped with the pie and Ry went back to his room to construct a new "thing". It turned out to be a dragon from How to Train a Dragon...Toothless or at least that's what he said.
Grands and I worked on watercolors, while I finished their tea party outfits. Ate a light lunch, they went out to run in the sprinklers, Shel came home early from work and went straight to bed for a nap. Grands were cold from the sprinklers and got under their covers and before long the house was totally quiet. I went to ad to the snore fest soon after.
And tonight GK and I will be going on the Artscrawl to a least 5 studios to see what other folks in the art community are up to. I think this will be a great way to let her see other peoples expressions in art. And a fun time for me meeting with old friends.
I'm telling you, a more perfect day, I can't imagine. Damn this is good stuff.
