Hope your day went well. 🙂
My day went pretty good. When I came home for lunch today, I took a few pictures.
Do you remember, last year when my ornamental pear tree was damaged in a storm? It lost a big limb which left one side stripped bare. Yesterday another side of the tree split. I guess it did so because of the heat and dryness.
Here it is split…
The marigolds are loaded down…
My daughter informed me, today, there is a National Speak like Sean Connery Day. Now being a Sean Connery fan, I had to look that up and sure enough, there happens to be several.
The one that makes the most sense to me is the one on his birthday, August 25. Though I won’t participate due to the fact I cannot get the accent… yes I have tried … (there’s the silliness for you). If God wanted me to talk like that He would planted me in beautiful Scotland instead of the southern part of the United States with its southern charm and drawl. 🙂
I have been a fan of Sean Connery since my childhood.
Have a terrific Thursday!
God bless and keep you,
The tomatoes have started coming in.
Its time to make salsa!
Let me begin with saying thank you to all those who participated in my Orangcha Glad It’s Summer giveaway.
I had 31 entries.
I asked my husband to pick a number within the range of 1-31. He got a calendar, turned to the month of May (it has 31 days), laid it on the floor, then turned his head and dropped a quarter on the calendar. It landed on the 12th day of the month. So the twelfth entry was the winner.
Let’s give Mimi a round of congratulations!
