Cotton or China --- Happy 2nd Anniversary Belma's Pearls.....

It doesn't show up very well but this is what we have been seeing in yards and fields all day - lovely yellow wildflowers. I thought about getting some clippers to make a bouquet but it got so hot today I let that plan go bye-bye. It is so hard to believe I started my Blog two years ago. So much has happened in such a short period of time. I looked it up and it said it is the cotton or china anniversary. I know that is for a wedding anniversary but I do love cotton. As a matter of fact, I put my embroidered cotton pillowcases on my new pillows this morning. Sleeping on pure cotton pillowcases reminds me of when I was a young girl - especially when the weather gets hot. It reminds me of those nights when we would pull our beds over to the open windows, pray for even a tiny breeze and move on the bed every few minutes to feel the coolness of the sheet; turn our pillow over and over until we would finally go to sleep.
We had a nice day in service today and I got to work with two of my favorite people - Keith and Gail. They went to a trailer while we were out and we had to park beside this older house to get there. I fell in love with this little house and yes - someone seems to be living in it.
It is hard to see Keith and Gail but I couldn't help but laugh. I told them when they got back to the car that they held their heads exactly the same way. When Keith would talk, he would turn his head and Gail standing behind him would turn hers the same way. Mother and Son - I miss going in service with Kurt. I always bought him very cool clothes and one day we were standing in front of a storm door. I was noticing his reflection and how handsome he looked in his trench coat holding his leather briefcase. He was also looking at our reflection and asked me, "Mom, do you think I will grow to be taller than you and Dad?" and I said, "According to Dr. Rice the answer to that is yes." Dr. Rice knew what he was talking about because Kurt is taller than both of us. Memories.....
I feel the dog days of summer right around the corner. It is already in the 90's here this week and isn't cooling off anytime soon. Page got to go swimming a few weeks ago at an inside pool and Leah says she did really good. I'm glad to hear that since I'll have her a lot this summer. Holding out the hope of swimming in a pool may help her get through those long days with me. :)Going for my physical tomorrow - I had the blood work done yesterday. Then I'm going to meet my dear friend for lunch. Can't wait to get caught up. She will be in town for a doctor's appointment too. I need to think of somewhere really good for us to go.


  1. Happy Anniversary! Can't believe I've been reading your blog for 2 years now :) Keep it going, because I love it. I'm not enjoying our early summer. I'd much prefer 60's and 70's any day. Hope the rest of the dr stuff goes well.
    We need to get the kids together when Page 2 is down.
