Chapter 6, Page 3, Book 10

And what is so rare as a day in June?; Then, if ever, come perfect days

James Russell Lowell

We had the promise of thunder storms yesterday and today they are here again. I'm going to wait and see what happens before leaving for the camper. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice so I'll be at the camper for sure.

I wish I could say I got a lot done while I was home but I'm happy with what I did accomplish so I'm not concerned about what wasn't done.

Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment,
love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy

Happiness is something we all desire and I'm
one happy person. Happiness is something that has become a way of life for me.

As you can see we've had some pretty cloudy weather lately but everything is nice and green and growing around here. The roses have begun blooming and the hedge along the side of the yard will soon be blooming too. They are Rose of Sharon bushes and will bloom all summer long.

Ah, summer… What am I doing at this computer? The perfect month of June, with her sun and fun invitation, is a-calling.

It is THANKFUL Thursday and I always have a long list so here it is for this week

I'm thankful for the warm weather. It so so nice to no longer be chilled and thankfully the furnace is no longer running.

I'm thankful that part of my family were able to join us for camping over Memorial Day weekend as I always enjoy their company. That is a blessing for sure!

I'm thankful as always for my health and that of my family too.

I'm thankful for my home and my little place in the woods that provide comfort, shelter, relaxation and so much happiness

I'm thankful for the car that keeps running and getting me where I want to go

I'm thankful for my computer that travels with me and connects to the internet too.

I'm so very thankful for these and all my many blessings and I hope that today you can find a lot to be THANKFUL for too.

'On Ya'-ma

You always think of Ohio as flat, but no! What a great campground you have to go to! There are parts of Ohio that you wouldn't believe for beauty and the trees! I don't know how you can leave e very week!

I had never heard of a Rose of Sharon and now here it is for the second time this week in different blogs. I'll have to make it 'third time lucky' and put one in our garden.
