Ok, so today was a warm spring day.  I would say that it was hot, but it was nothing compared to what the weather must have been like for my friends in Missouri, Texas, and Wisconsin.  It's amazing, the weather here!  Since moving here from Missouri 2 years ago, it's not been that hard to notice that the weather is much kinder to us here; it's cooler in the summer, and not so bitter cold in the winter.  Ahh!  I love it here.  But I still miss home.

So anyway, our neighbor is going to be out of state for about 3 months and we were given directions today on how to water her flowers, trees, and lawn, and feed the birds.  Am I forgetting anything?  Oh yes, we're also mowing the lawn and clipping (more like demolishing) all the ugly shrubs in her yard and ours, and washing her windows.

The 3 of us gals sang at a retirement home today.  We sing at 4 places 2-4 times a month and we've all agreed that this is our favorite place to sing.  The people at this place seem to really enjoy it and want to hear us.  Plus, this place has the best piano out of all 4 places.  It's a mahogany colored Yamaha grand.  It's beautiful!  Only, the keys tend to stick the faster and louder you play.  Haha, it was so funny today.  I was playing the 3rd movement of one of Beethoven's Sonatas, and the sticking keys were really muddying up the sound, so Anna and Abigail stationed themselves on either side of the piano, and whenever they saw a rebellious key still sticking up, they'd reach in and push it down really quick.  It was so funny while it was happening, all 3 of us were laughing, and we must have been some kind of sight for the folks listening!  (Yeah, I guess you had to be there to get the real effect.)

I edited the following photo today.  I just put up a new post on my photography blog, so I just decided to put it up on this blog.
I saw this white and purple iris while walking the dogs yesterday morning.  I LOVE how the colors are on it!

So anyway, that's what I did today.  I know I haven't been getting many Sunday Hiking posts up lately and I'll try to get on that.  Those are my favorite posts.

On a side note, Mom and Dad's 23rd anniversary is tomorrow!  23 years!  19 of those 23 years they've spent raising me and I love them so much.  I know I am not the most perfect child in this family, I've got a tendency to rebel in certain areas, but they've dealt with me with love (more than I deserve I know) and firmness and prayed for me whenever I needed it.  Even when I didn't think I needed prayer.  But the truth that I've come to learn is, everyone needs prayer. Every day.  Every hour.   Every. Single. Minute.  So, thank you Mom and Dad for dealing with me the way you have for my whole life.  I love you so much!

  1. You are very welcome my Sweet Texas Rose. You have been a tremendous blessing and we love you very much.

    Great photo of the iris, and the editing is really cool. At first I almost thought it was some kind of fish floating/swimming in blue waters.
