You Are My Sunshine

I've never seen a field of sunflowers, have you?

It was HUGE crop, and this shot only shows about 1/3 of the field.

I think they were all camera shy...they were all turned away...and BTW, the sun was behind me/them.  I thought they turned toward the sun??


Sally update:

She phoned Tuesday evening at 10:15.

She  could not stop using the word "Awesome" :)

It did this mama's heart good to hear the happiness in her voice.  My residual anxiety oozed away and I slept great.  Thank you, Jesus!

Her job description:

She is assigned to a Catholic assisted living facility visiting with residents, prepare and serve them lunch, help cleans & paints whatever needs it.

She said the first day they spent 3 hours just visiting the elderly and it was "awesome" to hear all the "amazing" stories they had to tell.

Her daily schedule:

6:30-7:30am - Breakfast

8:00-9:00am - Mass   **I love that they are celebrating the Mass each day!!**

9:00am - 3:00pm - Work at sites

3:00pm-5:00pm - Free Time (showers)

5:00pm-6:00pm - Dinner

7:00pm-9:00pm - Evening Program

9:00pm-9:30pm - Prayer - they sing the Chaplet of Divine Mercy each evening.

9:30pm-10:00pm - Chapel (optional)

9:30-10:30pm - Free Time (showers)

11:00pm - Lights out

I'm so glad that she has had this amazing experience!!!


Our Coppertone Baby.

We purchased a water table for her.

She loves water!

She loves being outside!

She's inherited my tanning genes (thanks to my mother's Slovenian blood!).


Fresh from our garden...our first green bell peppers!

Hoping you have a wonderful Thursday!!

  1. Camp sounds truly wonderful! I want to go ;) all the kiddos here love water, too! Such fun.

  2. What an amazing camp experience for your daughter! I hope Mary and the boys can get an experience like that in the future! Garden veggies look delicious...we're huge pepper eaters (many varieties) in this house! Clementine...what a doll! Jealous...sure wish I had inherited some tanning genes! LOL

  3. Oh, Patty...the camp experience sounds wonderful! Love that they celebrate Mass each day too...

    Thanks for the water table idea! I have never had one here...I am checking at Walmart this weekend...we have a heat wave rolling in next week...that would be perfect!

    And your peppers look delish! What are you planning for them? Love fresh veggies...I have a wonderful sweet man down the road here. We have a great thing going. I send him muffins and cookies, and he leaves fresh veggies on my porch all summer long! : )

  4. So glad it is "awesome"!!! Love your little coppertone baby. So sweet.

  5. Love those beautiful! So glad your daughter is enjoying her experience! I bet it's hard for her to be away though! :) Love that sweet baby girl...adorable!


Thanks for stopping by!
