Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real ~ July 21, 2011


Rainbows were a semi-regular occurance in our old house. There was something about the angle of the light in the evening and the situation of the front porch that made seeing rainbows not uncommon. I've seen more rainbows from our front porch in fifteen years than I've seen in the rest of my life combined. This one is a double!


Sheets on the line make me happy. The fragance of sheets fresh from the line makes me happier still.


The "funny" category is hardest for me each week because we don't have cute little kids doing amusing things anymore. However, we do have an amusing cat who likes to sleep in the weirdest positions. Being black, he's hard to photograph, though!


The thermometer at our kitchen window. The heat has been record-breaking this week.

Man of the House, Girl of the House, and I manned the Lutherans for Life booth at the county fair for three hours today ~ three hot, sticky hours. But we survived and helped to keep the pro-life message before the public. The discomfort was a small sacrifice . . . though I am happy to be home in the air conditioning once again!

Join the fun at Like Mother, Like Daughter and see an oh-so-adorable baby!


  1. I love your sheets on the line!!! and your kitty looks just like ours. so sweet!!

  2. I just saw my first rainbow in a long time in the mist from our sprinkler. They always make me think of the beauty and mystery of the world around me. Also love the sheets!

  3. I'm jealous of the clothes line!

  4. Great pictures of the rainbows and sheets. Full of story. :)

  5. Thank you for braving the heat to further the pro life cause!

    I had to add that when I pushed post comment the word verification came up 'blessie'
