Morning Ramble

This morning after breakfast dishes were cleared away and all the morning work done there was a nest of baby kittens that needed to be looked at.  The children and I went to the barn to see them. They are so cute since they have their eyes open.

On the way back to the house we found Jewel Weed that had pods begging to be touched and exploded into delightful curls.

Leaves that needed to be dropped into the creek for a race to see which would appear on the other side of the bridge first. It proved to be the slowest race ever since everything is so very dry and the creek is moving at the speed of a slow trickle. We forgot which leaf belonged to whom by the time they appeared on the other side so we don't have a winner today.

Unfortunately I happened to leave our camera in our vehicle when we got home Saturday night and it rode along to work with LV this morning so we weren't able to get any pictures of our morning.

I was surprised to see what time it was when we got back to the house and already quite a bit later than what I like it to be when I do a new blog post. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back on schedule. But for some reason I'm not sorry for my wasted time this morning.

I wouldn't call that a waste of time at all. Matter o' fact our youngest is visiting this week, and she brought me a bag full of jewelweed so I can use it to make soap for poison ivy. Have a great rest of the day!

Spending time like that could never be called a waste.

Not a bit wasted - those are the most important things. :-)

How was the baseball game on Saturday? Did you all have fun? I'm going to the Indians game tonight, game two of four that I am going to this summer.

"Wasted" mornings are the best, aren't they? :)

Well, everyone else said it first, but I'll make it unanymous! THAT was NOT wasted time, it was 'noticing' blessings with the children.

I miss jewel weed. I haven't seen any here, I guess maybe it only grows in the north.

Sounded like a wonderful morning, our electricity has been off and on lately due to storms and the heat, so the drain on the system caused things to shut down. But was great to catch up on the delightful time you and your children had.
