I woke to the sound of my wind chime this morning. I liked that. I had such a nice day just doing regular stuff. The weather is set to get very hot so today’s coolness was very pleasant. Because of the heat and working out in the sun, Jack is going to have the guys work an earlier set of hours come Wednesday through Friday so that will be nice to have him home earlier those days. He’s thinking of finishing some tiling we have yet to do. I want to, but it brings back memories of last summer when we tiled in the summer heat. Regarding my post title, Jack came home tonight asking me how I felt now that he was home. He asked me if I felt “finer than a frog’s hair.” I looked at him like he was speaking a different language. I had never heard that expression before!

I'm always taking pictures of forget-me-nots and never getting a clear picture. One of these days!
For quite awhile now we have had these orange flowers blooming in masses all over the swampy parts of the woods. You can see in these photos how pretty they are, but imagine a whole area just awash with them! It's just gorgeous.

Another thing I just enjoy so much every time we ride by. Thistles! Imagine. But when they are taller than you are and have a backdrop of peaceful woods with the sun shining down through the tree tops, they can be so pretty.
