Not much time for the computer lately

I have not vanished off the face of the earth, just not much computer time. I have been a lady of leisure for the past week, which has its good points and its bad points, since I like to be on the go.
Today though I did go pick some carrots and beans in the garden and manage to get a few photos. Its refreshing to my soul to see flowers in bloom, goats playing and watch young birds being fed by their parents.
I had a wonderful Mothers Day yesterday. Emery took me to a local nursery that specializes in English Garden plants and he bought me daisies, foxglove and a David Austin Rose, called Graham Thomas, which fits in my rose garden beautifully. Melanie and Casi took Emery and I out for supper at my favorite Chinese restaurant and after we ate, Mei wanted to come home to Mimi and Papa's house which we enjoyed of course. Steven stopped by with a bouquet of flowers and a card on his way into town shopping. I am expecting something in the mail today from Vermont ! Life is good when its surrounded by love.

Every single night before I go to sleep and every morning before I hop out of bed, the same prayer in on my lips.  Of course I pray for m...
