Settling in for summer

The house has not sold
and that might not be a bad thing.
We have loads of wildlife that have moved in for summer!
Turtles, frogs, Cardinals, deer and turkey
are constant reminders of how close to the lake we live.

Scott has always loved this land.
We both have taken to the back deck again
and I am about to reenter the green house for some summer veggies.

We are going to live a split household for the summer.
It will be a good one- where ever we are!

I don't tweet, but I do cook!

My friend is having a cook book give away.
Tomorrow is the last day to enter.

Ruth reviews some excellent books.
You should go and check her out.
on This That and the Other!

Waiting

Unlike other places, my town does not have housing inventory flying off the shelf.
I think we are usually a year behind the curve.
And so we wait.

Waiting is not easy for me.
Waiting for a baby to be delivered.
Waiting for a child to be healed.
Waiting for a job situation to change.
Waiting for the perfect family for the house.

All of these are in "God's time"
that is what my Nana used to say.

And so I wait.

New life


The morning after a good spring rain
brings all of the colors
out from under the pollen yellow
or seed brown


 I can look out my front window
and see a sea of green
The second pasture
That was brown last week
is green with envy that the front lawns
got a head start.
Even outside my computer/laundry room window
the tips of the bushes are  New green

And if you look very carefully-
a touch of red
The Cardinal laid her eggs in the middle of the storm
in the shelter of the roof
and the chimney wall
and the bed of green
