Outdoor Wednesday

Well at 93* I quit.
The lawn mowed and the corn planted.

We have a play date today and if it is cool enough...probability is low :)
The kids have a green lawn to play on...
At least where the under ground sprinkler works.
I need to either get that fixed...Steve has tried over and over we even hired someone who just smiled and took the money...oh some folks! now that man has not been hired again pretty stupid thing for him to do...

any way a woman heat worn just out of a cool shower here.
I yelped and whooped when the mower started!
It was really hard to get it to start!
With care a call was made to my darling...with pause as to not have attitude it was asked of him how to get the thing to start. Success and now he is free from having to mow it tonight. This mower has been ours for over 20 years and I still need refreshers on it. Steve has rebuilt it over and over. A good motor is like that with know how it can be repaired or rebuilt.

Now just imagine flowering vines...and color!

Join us over here at a Southern day dreamer

Why not relax and enjoy the remainder of the day. Perhaps join the children under the sprinklers. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

I noticed it was 103 where you live, YIKES!! I'm with Mary...join those sweet babes of yours in the sprinkler! We had a weed eater that I couldnt start and one time I got so mad at it for not starting, I chucked back in the garage, and I heard it running, after I stormed in the house and my Johnanthon had started it, I felt so stupid. Sometimes I wish I had a child like mind, and I think you should too and play in those sprinklers!
yes, you can join me and we'll walk through the leaves and kick them up with our feet and see Dash & Dove play in them! =)

Your lawn and gazebo look very inviting. For us it would work in the winter months, summer suns ' too hot.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
