These days

I have been posting a lot of pictures from our Israel trip, but today I digress.

The fog this morning was so pretty!  Almost looks like mountains.

The sun rise through the fog.

The weather has been nice and I got a shot of Al having his morning devotions out on the porch.

Look at this guy riding a 3-wheeler out back.  I wonder how comfortable those are.  I have remarked to Al that I should get training wheels for my bike.  I don't have the balance I used to and have taken a couple of spills.

A dove on my deck

Looking out my front window I see a robin who has laid her eggs in the tree in front of my kitchen window.  Every year it seems I will find a robin in a different tree.  This is a first time for this birch.

I got a shot of only 2 eggs.

Yesterday I thought I would look again.  Usually robins lay 4 eggs.  I was surprised to find babies!

I don't want to bother mommy robin, but I will try another peek.  Are there 2 or 3 babies?  I heard a kitty meowing around.  Mommy robin and a cardinal were scolding it.  I hope the kitty won't climb into the tree and get these sweet little babies!

Yesterday I had LOTS of shopping to do.  The list was long!  It was time to go to Wichita.  Some things I just can't find in our town.  I like to shop locally and I really like the size of our town!, but I do enjoy a hop to the big city!  I especially like this place!!  

It is not uncommon for Jill and I to spend 2 hours in that store!!  My younger daughter does NOT like to shop with us when we go there.  She is more of a "check it off my list and get out of there" kind of girl.

I had to put up the shades for the first time this year.  I have resorted to the air-conditioning too.

By Target was one of these trucks that transports huge panes of glass.  There was shattered glass all over the road!  Poor guy!  He and a fellow truck driver were sweeping up all the broken glass.  There are going to be some unhappy customers!  And an unhappy boss I imagine!

I was hoping to meet up with my younger daughter, but it ended up she was not able.  But between my shopping list and the 6 stores I had to hit, I turned off at all the garage sale signs I could spot!

I LOVE good bargains!!

And who doesn't love a stop here!!

I have to admit that after 9 hours in the big city, I was totally exhausted!!  My body paid for it and I had to hit the pain meds throughout the night.  Aahhh, but what an enjoyment to make good deals!
