    I'm sitting on the deck eating my cold chocolate pudding with rice crispies in it. It's about quarter to 9. Everything is so quiet and peaceful. Somewhere a cricket is chirping - I haven't heard a lot of them lately. Robins and other birds are singing their evening songs, and the hummingbird comes around for a quick sip of sugar water before buzzing off. I can hear the chicken feeder squeaking and creaking... One of my birds (most likely a Dellie) is helping herself to a bedtime snack. The daylilies are half-closed. Their day of glory and blazing sushine is over now. But the petunias and marigolds glow with leftover sunbeams they captured for a moment such as this.

    My pudding's gone. And there's a gnat crawling on my arm. But the hard things of life are worth it for a moment like this!

    Thank you!
    It is sometimes hard to find beauty in the simple things in this fast paced world we live in. I am sitting near our grill while DH is making ribs, the sweet smokey aroma fills the air and keeps the bugs at bay. Meanwhile, the chickens ready themselves for bed as the caddydids ready themselves for morning. Soon the song birds will fly overhead to find their nest and sing their last song of the day and the bats will wake to a bountiful breakfast. What a world it is indeed!
