Happy Sunday Saturday Funtry Friday!
Guess who likes sunflowers?
Speaking of laughter - I did not know that this bug...
(common variety of stink bug about an inch long - in case you wondered...)
...could swim like an Olympic Gold competitor! That's one of those bugs right in the middle of the ripples. This critter made standing in the mud fun. They move fast on dry land, just as fast on the mud, and equally fast in the water. They even dive. Who would have thought?!
I am beginning to think that some bugs just have a sense of humor. You have no doubt heard that saying "sometimes you're the bug and sometimes you're the windshield". Well, sometimes out here the bug is almost big enough to carry off the windshield and the vehicle as well. This guy hitched a ride and stayed on my windshield, until I finished the photo shoot for his moment of grasshopper blog fame. Then, the hopper flew away.
Of course not everything always goes smoothly out here. This morning I rescued this little guy from the dogs. Unwise move to fly into the porch as those old dogs can move faster than you would think.
He may or may not survive his encounter, but at least he is in a safe place with food and water and a chance to recover. It was a little more excitement than I wanted this morning, but at least I was able to rescue him.
This has been a very busy few days.
Friday was a town day - which means that the weather has dried up a bit and there wasn't any water in the wash. Yay!
Saturday was more errands and talking to someone about him using his *big* mower to whack down the tumbleweeds. (Take that, Henry T. Weeds! *with apologies to My Fair Lady*)
Sunday was another sunny day, so I was able to go to church and enjoy some great fellowship and worship. The sermon was thoughtful and inspiring, with a reminder to look around and see how much God loves us and blesses us.
I just showed you some ways the Lord shows His love and blessings to me. Now it's your turn - leave a comment and share some ways He shows His love and blessings to you.
Happy Sonday to you - God loves you!
