We had a nice 4th of July spent with my sisters - eating good food, laughing, and watching the town's fireworks from their front porch. I worked a bit more on my illustrated Inspiration Journal yesterday afternoon. I can see myself filling several journals!
Another surprise yesterday was seeing a black snake in our yard! I happened to see it as i looked out the kitchen window. A mockingbird was squawking and diving at it (she must have had babies nearby). Alfred tried to catch it but it quickly slithered away before he got outside - then he couldn't find it. It had found cover in the huge evergreen tree by our bedroom window. Did I scream? Yes, of course!
Right now, Kayla and I are watching Blue Jays flit around from branch to branch. The branches are swaying to and fro from their weight. I love their blue coloring.
Today I will be cleaning house, doing laundry, working on my illustrated journal, and read more in my current book "The Shell Seekers" by Rosamunde Pilcher.
Wishing you a day of Happy Homemaking!
