Sunny Sunday Salutations!

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a lovely weather Sunday like we are today.  We have had enough rain to float a small Ark around here!  Everything is SO GREEN and so lush right now.  Jerry has had his "landscaping hat" on all weekend.  He has trimmed all the hedges and bushes and mowed the lawn.  Trimming hedges around here is no small task.  IN FACT, I think I'll run down and snap a pic....

I TRIED to get a pano with my cell phone, but it was not cooperating.  You'll have to fill in the blanks, lol.

In the center where the sidewalk jogs is a huge hedge that he has trimmed level with the mortar line in the bricks.


That is why I am not allowed to do it.

I never get it right with the mortar!  He always comes all unglued and fixes my trim jobs.

Can't you SEE that isn't level with the bricks, Joy!?

Then, I put on my best shock face and tell him he is OBVIOUSLY a GENIUS at trimming hedges, and I better not do it ever again!

 Here's one showing you how it lines up with the mortar when Jerry does it.
And YOU thought I was kidding didn't you???

And HOW GORGEOUS are these flowers the rain brought suddenly to full bloom?  I had only ONE bloom last year, but this year I have EIGHT.  This has to be the most gorgeous flower of all.  I saw them in Aunt Betty Jane's yard when I was working at Mom's house in Kingfisher, and soon thereafter, I planted one of my own.  That was three years ago.

How can ANYONE with half a pea brain (as my Mother used to say) think there is no God when they see a creation like this, never mind a human being?  I just do NOT get that!

Also notice our LOVELY dirt yard.  All that dirt you see USED to be green grass.  The dogs, evidently, have an aversion to grass, so they destroy it.  Sometimes I think I will have to get rid of them to ever have a pretty yard again.
The sermon this morning was called "Kingdom of the Mind".

EXCELLENT sermon by Pastor John Hagee this morning.  I wish my grandsons who have just started attending church together could have heard it.  I bet they will listen to the recording of it though.  They were at their Dad's house this morning, and he goes to a very strange church.  I will say no more.

And I have been sewing AND embroidering AND making new Sure-fit Designs AND beading buttons.

Do you want to see?

If you do, leave a comment, and I will post pictures tomorrow.

Until then, enjoy your day.

Hugs, Joy
