day 2 of our pact is done!! :-)
my son did come today with his daughter. we had a nice time. he took the girls to the park to play Frisbee & badminton! they had fun. they are 1 year apart. we also had supper together! a nice visit!
my granddaughter & I took a late evening walk. we counted one firefly!! I showed her evening primrose & had her smell it. it's the sweetest smell! we also saw baby bunnies hopping & listened to katydids & crickets... it is definitely late summer sounds!

i get a quote daily from goodreads. there will be a quote from an author & then some info about that author I find interesting!! I know there are lots of places to get quotes these days!! I read guideposts & they have a section that is all inspiring/positive quotes!
my granddaughter is here for 3 days! today we made brownies, she plunked around on the piano (she is trying to learn moonlight sonata), read on the porch with the cats for company & watched more of I dream of Jeannie! that show makes us laugh!!
tomorrow we hope to see my son & his daughter!! the cousins will be happy to see each other! I hope it works out.
thanks Guidel for the pact invite & for the encouragement today!!

I am back but am having my granddaughter again for 3 days. we are having a low key visit so I hope I have enough time to do DC!! please bear with me if I don't get to posts as much as I would like!
thanks to Vivian, Lynne, Rachel & Guidel for the nice encouragements!!
it is hot & humid. the kind of weather to be indoors in A/C. I did fill my feeders & a cute little flying squirrel checked out the spot where I put the peanuts. they really are cute! ;-D
I hope everyone is able to stay cool this week! have a great week!

Kathy L. is taking time away from Daily Challenge and will be back on July 27, 2015.
I'm taking a break!! I will miss everyone! just busy with the granddaughter & catching up at home with things!!
i love fruit, especially in summer when it's in season!! I love to chop up fruit in my yogurt, in my cereal, on top of ice cream, or in a food like blueberry pancakes or fruit salad!! so many choices!
thanks to Guidel & Vivian for the encouragements! :-)
I meant to take my break yesterday & forgot!! today I will take it!
we had a busy day with my granddaughter. we walked dogs in the am, a visit to the ymca & library in the afternoon. we also made brownies & blueberry pancakes! she swept the garage out for me to earn some money toward a bike she wants to buy! we let out my boss's dogs & fed them supper! we also read our books on the screened porch! whew... I am all tuckered out!!
tomorrow we have another busy day planned!!
see you all this wknd!
cheers! ♥ ♥ ♥
how much younger? ha ha!!
finishing nursing school at the university was hard!! that was an accomplishment!! really younger, I was proud of being a girl scout!! :-)
thanks Guidel for the nice encouragement! :-)
today I had fun watching the birds in the back yard! I had a female cardinal stop by the bird bath. the male cardinal was missing feathers on his head. I read somewhere that birds do molt at the end of their nesting season. I also had a female mallard stop by with her 1/2 grown babies! just like the wood duck who stopped by the other night with her 1/2 grown babies! !I am glad the families are making use of the feed I provide!!
tonight after I got back from my walk I found the little flying squirrels eating the peanuts I put out for them. later I was putting orange 1/2's out (the moths like the oranges!), 2 baby raccoons were going for the peanuts left over. I put them in a robins nesting box & one of the kits squeezed inside the nesting box!!
when winter comes, I will miss all the wildlife!

p.s. I am taking a mini break, having my granddaughter for 3 days & we will be busy!! :-D
challenge done!! nice to pamper my hands!! they do a lot of work! :-D
we had a beautiful day today!! in the 70's, sunny & a lovely breeze blowing! I enjoyed walking dogs today in this weather! too perfect!! had a nice swim & walk later! I saw a little tree frog hop across the trail & I just missed stepping on it!! whewww...
last night we had 2 deer stop at my corn feeder at dusk. a male & female. they were fun to watch! today I enjoyed watching the birds coming to my feeders & bird bath! those little babies sure are noisy! I took down my grape jelly feeders as they were attracting hornets. I will keep putting out the orange halves as the red bellied woodpecker likes the fruit!! I miss the orioles. they tend to stop coming in july to those feeders!
I realized the frogs quit their froggy chorus last week. I heard one lone frog all last week & now they are done! I miss them, but I am enjoying the katydids & cicadas!
we had a new family move in behind us. I sent them a welcome to the neighborhood card & got a card back. they seem very nice. the wife is pregnant & they have a 3 yr old daughter. I think she is due soon. can't wait to hear the good news! they are expecting a boy! I went over to say hi & their dog was so excited to meet me. when I went home, he actually led me to my door following the route I took to get to their house!! he is a very fun dog!!
I am rambling! I hope everyone had a great Monday!!
