Pic of the Day...July 25th...One of those days...Well, maybe not...

Well, it's been one of " those" days...the kind you are glad that are over...the, "Mama said there'd be days like this" kind of day...But, I said I'd be honest if (when) I crawl...I didn't exactly crawl, ran is more like it, but you know those kind of days when you go from the mountains of praise to the pits of exhaustion... Or things start out well and then just slide down the hill...or something big and depressing happens, or a series of a lot of little things go wrong...Anyway, it WAS one of those days.......but its OVER and I get to go to sleep...and start over again tomorrow...and maybe there won't be quite as much to do...and two baby chicks won't die...and I won't be as tired...and it might not rain three times or be as humid......Just maybe......Let me end on a high note though and remember the good things...I noticed the bright green moss hiding in the grass...and minuscule purple flowers...and an army of double marching ants...all in the same six inches of grass...the clouds were incredible...and there are still, at this point, three baby chicks left...I got to swim, after a hot outside working session...I the top of my some long pressing things accomplished...downloaded part of this past weekends photos...made a pretty yummy dinner...drew for about 15 minutes...listened to music...had tea a few times...checked out a few photo blogs...did some laundry...did some paper boys and DH helped me today and were sweet...talked to a friend for a bit and laughed...
You know what? It was a pretty good day!
It's a wonder how things turn around when you count your blessings...

  1. You know, I've been moved with your blog. Yes, life's like that. We encounter surprising moments, even depressing ones too. I think everyday presents us with opportunity to live and appreciate the things around us. I like the bird photo? Did any of your boys draw it? It's so nice. Have a great day!

  2. Thank you OP,
    I appreciate your words and that you would be moved by my blog...It seems that the posts that I don't over think, just let myself write, are the ones I enjoy the most and others seem to also.
    The drawing is mine, one of my favorite and most relaxing past's really quite tiny, I took this pic with a macro lens. I have other drawings under: paint, draw, doodle and journal pages...
    Thank you again for writing! I had a good day and I hope you did too! :) M.
