I was a little down today (still not at work). My sister K. stopped in for a visit and a trip to get pizza. YUM! It was nice:) I'm grateful for her. We walked around the yard and there were so many beautiful things see! Even though it's my yard and I planted much of the stuff--
wild flowers, herbs, squash,and tomatoes-- I feel blessed. God just keeps on giving! Sometimes we get to caught up in the busyness of our lives and forget to be silent and to be grateful. I'm going try harder!

Here are some pictures of the beauty that's around me.

color my world "Gorm"(in Irish) or blue in english

I feel so bad I got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind
On Blue Bayou
Saving nickles saving dimes
Working til the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou...
