I finally got to sit on the new patio yesterday. It was the most peaceful time I've experienced in a long time. Just God, me and nature. It was so quiet. Small little white clouds and bright blue sky, the greenest grass, a flock of birds nesting in the treetops over in the field and the sweetest black and orange little bitty butterfly that kept landing on the patio. Molly laid in the grass and at one time the butterfly landed on her ear. I had my book and water but I couldn't read very long. I would hear a plane go over and I love that so I'd have to stop and watch till it disappeared. It was wonderful. The patio looks so small in the picture but it is not that small. After lunch I got busy in my craft room and worked on some cards. Today's card is from day 2 of Online Cards Stretch Your Stamps 2 with Laura Sterckx of http://www.makingcardsisfun.com/. She is only 17 and makes the most beautiful cards. Mine didn't look ombre but I'm happy with it. Then last night we had a huge thunderstorm. Two schools are without power this morning along with many neighborhoods and we have lots of fog. Be kind to one another.
