Beautiful Summers Day

Today has been a hot but beautiful Sunday. I enjoy church this morning and praising the Lord. Sunday evening are usually low key after church. I usually take a nap or find a good book to read. But today I did a little shoppping and came home and watered my flowers and this sweet little butterfly just kept flying around several of my flowering bushes.

It was just the prettiest yellow color.I love capturing God beautiful little creatures in pictures. As a little girl I use to try and catch them , until I learned that your not suppose to touch a butterfly.

Yesterday we cut our first real picking of the Okra. Yuummmy. I love Okra. I have got to get most of it in the freezer because I have to pick it again tomorrow. EEEgggg.
We also picked tomatoes and our Butter Beans will be ready some time this week to. But I dread picking them, it is suppose to be in the upper 90's all week. Talk about hot. I may wait until nearly dark to pick them and only do one roll a day. I have 4 rolls to pick.

I sure hope that your Sunday has been one that you praised God for his bountiful blessing and I hope that you have a wonderful week this week.

God Bless

Home From Work Sick and a Little Friend

Well been awhile since I have last updated. I am home sick today so I have to time to just sit and talk abit.

Not glad that I don't feel good but I love beening home and been lazy today. Well not sure you could call it been lazy. I have already done the dishes and  have one load of laundry on and 3 more in the floor to do.  I guess a mom just can't been sick these days and just stay in bed.

We were sitting on our front porch last night and notice our little friend was sitting with us.
He is just to cute. Last year about this time we had one that hung out on our back door and every time I went out he would be just sitting there with those big eye looking at me. Just to cute.

Our garden it doing great. Got a good amount of Okra yesterday and it is blooming tons. I love okra. I am a little upset that my tomatoes didn't do good this year. We do have several tomatoes and every time they get a little red our beagle decides that he needs them more than we do.  He also loves cucumbers and squash to. I have never seen a dog that loves vegetables like our dog. I am going to have to do something about his eating. lolol.

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful week and that the weather is a little cooler where you are.

God Bless

Our Sweet Animals

I just had to share a picture of our sweet dog and our cat. We had a thunderstorm tonight and our beagle was at the back door whining. So I let him in and got his bed out for him to lay on. He was in the kitchen with me while I was making Tea. Well he got to whining loud and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. But everytime it would lighting outside he was get really scared and whine. So I got a blanket and covered him up and he looked so sweet that I just had to snap a pic. I didn't realized just as I snapped a pic our cat came around the corner.  Just to cute. I can't just imagine what was going thru out cats mine, what was she thinking. (Why is that dog covered up), or ( why is he whining), or (what is he doing in here). hehe. We just love our animals, they are so spoiled.
Notice our sweet Cat, Callie in the background.

Vacation 2011

I was really looking forward to this years vacation to the beach. It was going to a wonderful 9 day, 8 night of pure bliss, or so I thought. Sometimes God has other things in store for us and we just don't know it. Something it is just to remind us that we are very bless indeed and to remind us to count our blessings for what we have.
Our vacation started off great, we actually got off on time, like I wanted to. We headed to Gulf shores and made plans to stay at Gulf State Park. We have a travel trailer and love to stay in it. We love to camp. So the 8 hour trip down there was great, enjoyed the time with hubby and my mother and daughter. My son was coming in the following Monday, he had to work.
Got 30 minutes out and notice this huge thing of smoke in the sky. Hubby said that a industry plant must be on fire cause it was huge. The closer we got to the park the closer we got to the fire. We were getting worried. So we pulled into the park and I go to check us in and the lady was so nice but she informed me that there was a fire at the back of the park. Someone has threw out their ashes from where they had grilled and it caughted the nearby woods on fire . This was around 2pm when we got there and it had started she said around 12pm. She said they were asking the campers to leave and go to another spot that were close to that back spot but if we got a spot close to the front it would be fine, they should get it out soon.
 So we go set up camp and the whole time my stomach it just kept  getting in knots cause  the fire it  is just getting worse looking and bigger. So we decided not to fully sit up camp, just do what we have to do. So that night we stay but with a very uneasy feeling cause the fire has grown to burning over 200 acres, not in the camp but on the back side of the park site. The next day it is the same still burning but getting bigger. So they call in helicopters , several to start dropping water on it to help put it out. No luck it still growing. Before it is all said and done it grew to well over 700 acres that is burned. A chinook helicopter was called it to help along with 3 other one.
We went and spend 3 nights in a hotel for the fear of smoke. One evening a thunderstorm came up and blew the smoke into the park so bad that you couldn't see your hand infront of your face. We or should I say I paniced and we made our way to our vehicle and got out of there. That is when we decided that we would spend several night at a hotel.

So I say all of that to say this. You just never know how your vacation is going to go. I count my blessing that no one was hurt in that fire. I count my blessing that I have my family along side me to be able to have a vacation. I love them very very much.

So I leave you  a picture overload of our vacation. We enjoyed our time with each other and our time at the beach. I would do it all over again, but would just hope that next time there is no wildfire.
