Sunrise on the prairie.
A little sunbathing on the porch rug for Karma...
...who sat up wondering if I was coming out to read yet. ;)
I did read a little out there early in the morning--until the wind picked up. It's 70 degrees right now and has clouded over. Thunderstorms are on their way, I guess. Been a nice morning, tho.
I got the cutest card from Iggy!! How To Live is the name of the company. (This was so cute I had to go look them her up online.)

Thanks so much! You made my day, Iggy!!! :):)
My little sister kindly went and took spring pictures of the old cottonwood tree, too! This is from one direction. It's the big tree next to that closest parked car in front of the grey house.
And here are some shots from down the other side of the street.
Everything is so pretty and green now!
Hard to believe I can remember when it was all sand and mud--totally barren and naked land in the entire housing development. Amazing what 55 years will do. Nature is miraculous in how, given enough time, it will thrive even where we have bulldozed it down to nothing.
Dagan and Leah didn't come over last night. Leah's oldest sister called a sibling meeting to discuss their mom. Vicky's got hospice coming every day and is on morphine now. My friend, Ruby, and I postponed her visit till later in the summer. My prayers are with them all.
Meanwhile, it's too windy on the porch for Karma and I this afternoon. She's sleeping by the open porch door, tho--closer to the wall where there's less wind. She's no dummy--hehe! And I'm going to settle in and watch the second DVD of Justified-Season One.
Hope you've been having a good week. Karma and I have been on the lazy side, but it's been a sweet week for us--even counting the tornado flash backs--ROFL!! :) :)
