Today was lovely. The sun was back, so the girls and I finished planting the hanging baskets. My hubby mowed the entire lawn and even reclaimed some new areas and came in thoroughly exhausted. The lawn looks great! Ready for the BBQ planned for Monday, where we may have 26 people! (from only 4 families!) Let's hope it doesn't rain. Our house is pretty small for 26 people when it rains. Our house is pretty small for 6 people when its sunny. We went to church, and heard a great sermon, about what it means to abide in Jesus, and the promise of a fruitful life when we do, and the fact that we can do nothing without him. He is the vine, we are the branches, and pruning should be expected. Remember, gardeners, pruning is a good, good thing, but it sometimes ain't pretty.
But, while toodling around with the camera today, I got this pic of my middlin' girl. She was just so striking in this moment, just playing near our swingset, I had to take a pause. She's fun and open, sparkly and sassy, up for anything in both good and bad ways. She plays a pretty mean violin for a 6 year old. I like her a whole bunch.
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend.
