Sunday thoughts and pictures

It's been a quiet weekend around here. I have done a lot of reading (finished The Night of the Purple Moon by Scott Cramer, you can check out my review on Goodreads) and some house and yard work. Enough to make me feel I have accomplished something anyway. Oh, and I had dinner with my cousin (in law) and bought some cute baby bibs and a onesie for my upcoming grand-baby. I love the fact that my cousin is pregnant with my grand baby! LOL! For those of you shaking your heads in confusion, the mommy-to-be is the daughter of my best friend (who also happened to be my husband's cousin) who died several years ago. I am the honorary Grandma in my dear friend's stead. Our granddaughter's name is Rebecca Leigh and is expected in July. This is the first time I have been able to see Ashley since before Christmas, so it was fun to take her to dinner and spend a little money on the baby. :)

Other than dinner with Ashley I stuck close to the house because the hubby was having a lot of pain and didn't want to do much and I didn't want to leave him. Not that I could really do anything for him, but I hate for him to be alone at times like that. Often I have no choice due to work and other responsibilities, and I know it is hard for him to be alone with only pain to occupy his heart and mind. So, I like to stay close by when I can.

I did manage to take a few pictures of my world this weekend, want to see? :)

Sunset on a cloudy day. So lovely

I am going to miss spring when it is gone.

On the left is Jonah, the right, Sassy. She is his best friend. Pretty sure she loves him even more than I do!

Finally I have this thought that I stumbled across in my Facebook feed. 

Love is louder when we realize that what people think or say about us doesn't really matter. It's how we use OUR voices and actions that matters.~from Love Is Louder

Such a simple truth, but one so easily ignored. It is so easy to get wrapped up in what other people think about us. So easy to allow ourselves to become consumed by concerns over what the world may say about our lives and how we live them. None of that really matters. What matters is that we follow our own inner voice and do our best to leave a positive mark on the world around us. 

That's all I have for this Sunday evening. It's getting late and I still have a few things to finish before I can go to sleep. I hope you had a wonderful and restful weekend and that tomorrow finds you excited to go out and conquer Monday! God Bless and thank you for stopping by to read my rambles! 


  1. OMg your cats are awesome and the pictures of the flowers makes me want to go paint. Also having been in pain all weekend myself I can say sometimes just having someone by that cares does help.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Brandon! My cats are my babies, but I usually try not to post too many pictures of them. I already have a rep as the crazy cat lady! :)

    The flowers really are beautiful and I can't take a bit of credit for them. I found them growing wild. Just a happy accident!


Thank you for stopping by to read my rambles. I would love it if you leave me a comment! Comments make my heart smile!
