Another July 2021 Finish

Snuck in another 4th of July finish – just in the knick of time as we enter the last week of July.  Fourth of July Sampler by The Humble Sitcher 🥰.  Such a cute piece – I’ll be giving it a quick dip into a cozy tea-bath and fashioning it into a pillow tuck 💕 ✂️ ☺️.

Hope you carve out some hobby time in your world – creativity is a health attribute, let’s harness it!

Little Guy Mantis Update

My little buddy found one of my bonsai trees a few weeks ago and has been moving between the many trees effortlessly now. Today’s update shows how much he has grown, now over 1” long. 

The right tool for the Job.

I always tell my wife Brandi, “You have to have the right tool for the job”, I think I nailed for this one. P. S. the Honda is 22 years old and in top notch condition , single pull start, used once a month for our lagoon bank.

Micro Mantis

The Smallest Praying Mantis

While trimming my bonsai trees today I came across this bug that I thought was a mosquito, some say the state bird of South Carolina. After further investigation I noticed it was the smallest Praying Mantis I have ever seen! It was not even 3/8”. Watch the video and tell me what you think.

Dog, Crows, Eagle

As two crows fly with an eagle

This morning Ryker with his with crows was letting us know he heard them. It was a strange time in the day to hear that, so I looked to see what was going on and there were five crows chattering around a bald eagle across the lagoon from our backyard. It was a sight to see, thinking I’d miss getting a photo opportunity I went and grab the camera anyway. I managed to get some decent shots. What do you think?

God Bless our Veteran’s

To all who have served in our United State’s Armed Forces – We thank and honor your commitment, dedication and sacrifices made in the honor of our country.

Mike and I were talking about our Veteran’s this morning while having our morning cup of “Joe The Eye Opener” and sharing in our funny side kick’s of childhood learning woe’s – Mike revealed that as a kid he didn’t understand the difference between veteran’s and veterinarian’s!   Of course I couldn’t contain my laughter to which he replies “knock it off Miss Yield”.  “Oh man – busted!”  I too had my own childhood learning woe’s.  The yield sign made no sense to me.  It was difficult to grasp and I thought the yield sign should just be a stop sign if you might have to stop anyways, I mean really!  Funny thinking back on the things that tripped us up as children.

Fox news had a clip on whether or not our current young men and woman of the USA are as willing to join and commit themselves to the United State’s Armed Forces.  Certainly a scary thought and had me appreciating our Veteran’s even more so.  We salute you today and everyday!

God Bless and Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!
