First there was one
"Where's our food?"
Then there were three... "Someone call our parents! We're suffocating in this hot birdhouse! And we're very hungry!!"
But danger lurked in the shadows... ("Hush...there's something out there! It's big and furry!")
The neighborhood kitty seemed oblivious at first...but then later her ears picked up the sound of the chirping birds and she was quite attentive to where the sound was coming from. Finally my son had to throw a ball at the cat to get her to leave. Don't worry, she wasn't hurt...but she got the message, and hopefully she will stay away...but I rather doubt it.
"Where's Mother and Father when we need them most?"
Hoping and praying these little baby bluebirds can make it out safely!
Today I will be spending the day at Dixie Cottage with my daughter in love Rose so my son can have a day at home to work on the many custom orders and building projects he has stacking up. (Praise God!) The hardest part of running their business is that they have so much good business they don't have time to do the custom orders and painting that they need to do to keep things stocked and fulfill the orders they have if they have to be at the store every day too. So I am going to try to give them one day a week, helping Rose in the store so Benton can stay at home and work. It's a good problem to have, and we are all very thankful.
So if you need me today, here is where I'll be:

I haven't been writing as much lately...trying to spend less time at the computer these days as I seem to have strained muscles in my neck and shoulders and sitting at the computer makes it worse...or is it the cause? Whichever, I need to limit my time here, so please forgive me if I don't make it around to everyone's posts every day. I am trying...I love to hear from each of you and hate to miss your news and views!! I keep trying out different pillows thinking that is my problem. I have been tempted to order one of those "My Pillows" from TV...has anyone else tried them? They are a bit too pricey for my budget, but if I keep buying new pillows at Walmart I might as well buy a "My Pillow" and be done with it...but do they actually work better than a cheap pillow? I would like to hear from some real people who have purchased them. What kind of pillow do you like best?
I really haven't had much to share anyway...we haven't had any big adventures or activities worth writing about...haven't taken many pictures either. I guess I am just kind of in a slump, so bear with me while I pull myself back up and out and get back on track. So here's what I have managed to accomplish:
This past Saturday I bought some awesome delicious juicy ripe peaches. I never buy peaches at the grocery store because they are never good...they usually are hard and then by the time they ripen they are rotten. So when I can find a good fresh peach at a farmstand, I am thrilled. These were actually good enough to eat!!
