Greetings, Dear One! Happy First Monday of June!
How was your week and weekend?
Our week here passed in one big blur. In reality, I don't think I accomplished too much of anything this week. In addition to laundry and picking at housecleaning (didn't even do a thorough job of that) I did get the June budget figured, the bills paid, and shopped for groceries. That's about it.
John is getting along okay. Days are long; nights are longer. We just continue to take one day at a time and take things as they come. Continued prayers on John's behalf would be most appreciated.
Please pray, too, for my friend, Dorothy. She was in the hospital a while back with COVID, got out, went back in for post-COVID complications, and has now been diagnosed with COVID pneumonia. She was placed on a ventilator Thursday and they are only giving her a 20 to 30% chance of coming off it.
Me and Dorothy
Dorothy and I are celebrating 50 years of friendship this year. Here is the link to a Five on Friday post I did about that back in July of 2020. You can get to it by clicking HERE.
I did take a trip out to the park this week and got these neat bird shots on my way home. The one above is of a scissor-tailed flycatcher; the one below is of a dickcissel in flight. I caught him just as he was releasing himself from the shrub that he was sitting on just a split-second before.
