Well, the work on the house to repair hail damage started again today. The workers needed to run an electrical hose that had to be close to our peonies in the flower bed. I had been meaning to get out there and cut some of the old blooms off anyway so I took this opportunity to cut a basket load.
When I came in I got out my vases and went to work surrounding myself in the pink lovelies. Don't they paint some walls in prisons pink to calm the inmates? Anyway, that was an arbitrary thought I had. I'll have so much pink in the house that it will serve as a calming thing. Being surrounded by God's handiwork always serves to cheer and calm me. I'm not going to keep all this to myself--our neighbor is pregnant and I hope to get one of these arrangements to her this afternoon.
My Mom and Dad came over a few days ago and brought me some strawberries! They were so pretty I had to make a pie. When I got ready to make it, though, there was no pie crust in the freezer. I like to keep those "store bought" crusts on hand. I was determined to have pie for desert last night so I got on foodtv.com and found a simple recipe that I made in my food processor. I was so encouraged that it turned out good. I forgot to take a picture before we cut it :)
Oh, it's raining now so all is peaceful. Praise The Lord from Whom all blessings flow. Blessings to you all from the holler...
