I almost forgot a picture today. Today is Father's Day and we had a phone call this morning alerting us to the fact the our pianist was enroute to the hospital. I played all the hymns with the guitar. When we got home we died. The toll of the wedding we worked and family reunion from Saturday did both of us in and we slept all afternoon. Honestly....I was comotose. I went outside and say one of my daylillies blooming and captured it.

Today we went to Alex City and took care of some legal business and got my hair cut at my friend, Jo's. She has her house all decorated for the fourth and I loved this wreath on her front door. She is so creative.

We went over to Beth and Ron's to have prayer with her. She is ill and needs to feel better. They have an amazing yard and garden. Beth's sunflowers are blooming, and we actually took that cabbage home and made coleslaw and cooked cabbage out of it. I had forgotten how much taste cabbage out of the garden had. We also were given some squash and my vegetable night was devine. I took Beth (and Ron) a fruit cocktail poor mans pie. Ron loves fruit cocktail so I thought I would give him some with a twist. My mom used to make them because fruit cocktail was so cheap to buy. Anyways....back to the garden, the baby squash are so cute and so is the little cucumber. I love cucumbers. WE NEED RAIN!

Today was my daughters 31st birthday. We went to Alex City to check on friend Mary who had had surgery on Tuesday. Her birthday was last week when I was in Mobile and I had not given her her gift yet. Her hubby, Bill gave her that really cool wasp catcher in my first picture. Mary loves Fantasia and Mickey Mouse, she collects M.A. Hadley dishes and I bought her the blue salt and pepper shakers to go with her fleur de lis plate. We took her to have lunch with her husband at Wendy's, messed around town a bit, and came home. It was a good day!

This was supposed to be my Sunday sign and I was going to say "nuff said." I loved the little puppy lying in the shade of the sign trying to beat the heat. Who knows...maybe he was a father....maybe she was a mother. I just loved the shadow.

Today was CRAZY! We had our cookout and spent the day getting ready for it. Greg, Wayne, Taylor arrived early with the 20 x 40 tent. We wanted to make sure people were shaded and cool. After they left we finished steadying the tent and put up our own 10 x 10 tent. I went inside and finished clearning the house and began preparing my part of the food. We provided the meat, buns, and condiments....and asked our guest to bring a side. We have some really good cooks in our church. From salads, to desserts and mac and cheese if you left my place hungry yesterday, shame on you. People began coming around 3:30 and by 4:15 Still Magnolias were singing our hearts out. We stopped for a bit at 5 and ate and by 6 we were singing again. I have to admit....singing again was AWESOME. We have not had a whole lot of music in our lives in the past year.....and we need to fix that. We finally wrapped it up around 8 when Mrs. Jean (in the read and white) came up and sang a couple of numbers with us. It was so much fun and she enjoyed it. It was such a fun day....but to be honest....I was dog tired when it was over and too tired to post this last night. Have a wonderful Sunday! I know I will.
