God knew what He was doing
when He sent a gentle breeze
and brought a lovely butterfly
to set my heart at ease.
The happiness of your friendship
and the gentleness of your words
have touched my life in special ways
and now I feel assured.
Thank you for your loyalty
and for reading everyday.
I only hope you find things
to make a happy day.
You really don't want to see pictures of my fall cleanup do you? I didn't think so...so I put a picture here of my mums across the front evergreens. Much prettier! I have, however, been doing some fall cleanup. Yesterday, it was so beautiful out so that after a fall drive, I stayed out in the yard and did a few things. Why does one thing lead to another? I never know quite when to stop....but yesterday I didn't overdo, I guess...nothing hurt last night. I started out by trimming our American Cranberry in front of the house. It grows more than Joe would like. He wants it to stay at window height and itwants to grow up to the roof! He slaughtered it in the spring...cut it into a square shape :( I hated it all through the summer. I decided to wait till the leaves were mostly off and then give it a shaping. I cut out all the inner branches and many, many water sprouts.....leaving only the main branches. Then I took the clippers and shaped the bush a little more rounded. I would like it to stay like this. I intend to keep at it in the coming year...if Joe doesn't dig it up :( I think that I can make this into a more presentable shaped bush. I guess I needed a picture here.
Then I went to my little Mary's garden and did a cleanup there. The hostas were cut down...I usually leave them to turn yellow, but this year they look pretty bad, so I cut them off. I went around the yard with the wheel barrow and picked up my lawn decorations. All the bunnies, my gnome, watering cans, and many other things were put away for winter.
I moved the bird feeder closer to the office window. I love to sit here at my computer and watch the birds outside my window. I just told Joe that I hope my little Titmouse comes to this feeder again. I'm looking out and there is a pair of them sitting on the feeder and checking me out through the window. I do love these little birds and I'm beside myself that they are back.
Today is cloudy and rain might come. I still have energy left...I want to go out and do a little more. Maybe God is telling me to rest, by sending rain.
