Daily Reminder # 363

Lazy. Just gratitude tonight.  The Spring that took forever to arrive has quickly moved to summer. It has been 80 the past couple of days with thunder storms and rain. An hour from here they had really violent storms and a tornado and 15,000 people lost power, so I'm not going to complain. The yard has been quiet. I guess critters are smart enough to rest in the heat. The goldfinches came back and Gwen Chipmunk proved that there's more than one way to be incredibly greedy. Other than that it was a dull day. I still owe wordzzles a mega and don't feel like doing it. I think the friend for whom I write these posts is about to make a big shift so if you want to send prayers her way, it would be much appreciated.

I wish you could have seen Gwen's cheeks - they were
so full that she actually looked deformed.  Alas,
she refused to face me so I could get a good shot
of her face full on.  Hopefully these shots give an idea.

Cheeks empty, ready to start again....

Lovely pics. Your points were touching too. They made me thank God for what He has given to me.
