Where does time go ~ it's already Thursday and the sun is trying to shine this morning even thou the weatherman says it's going to rain this afternoon. Need to go out and empty the rain gauge it says almost an inch of rain... We have had lots of rain and many storms. Its 50 degrees today which is not too bad.. Later today before the rain comes I need to go outside and trim some of the branches on the trees and pick up sticks out of the yard so Dave can mow the grass. It's almost that time of yearto mow the grass. When the kids were here they would mow all this grass with a push mower and as soon as they left we got a riding mower.. Isn't that just the way it works?
Looking out at the bird feeder right outside my window I can see the birds are busy at the feeder and drinking lots of water at the birdbath.. I see the Brown Thrasher has made a return trip back to Iowa. That is good to see.. I love the white markings on the white crowned sparrow's. I have lots of birds vying for their spot at the feeder.
Was with Ben yesterday. He was so funny. He talks so much now it's a continual non-stop answer and question conversation.. and always WHY>>>I try and answer every why and he keeps asking why,,,I really get humored at what he has to say...The school year is almost over for him and for this summer Tracie is going to have a gal named Donna who has a daycare in her home take care of Ben.. I can hardly wait. Donna is so good with him and understands him so much better than where he is at ABC daycare.. The preschool where he goes says we need to practice with L and P words.. with him.. He just laughs at us when we try to correct him with the right pronunciation. He just comes back with how he says the word.. I think he thinks we need to change how we pronounce words to the ways he does.. LOL..Good luck Benny when you get to school...He didn't start talking until he was 3 1/2 so he has a lot of catching up to do.. But you know ~ it will come and just be part of his childhood.. Ben's mom Tracie didn't start talking until she was 3 1/2 and now she talks a lot~! and she pronounces words correctly.. ha ha.. Not worth the time to worry about,, it all gets O.K. when they get older.
It's noon and guess I best get dressed for the day.. It's just so nice to lounge around in my PJ's. Have my bills paid for month of April . I like to do mine online.. IT's so fast and quick and no more writing out a check ,stamping the envelope and addressing and plaster on my return address with one of those labels. I write very few checks..those things are expensive.
Have a Tiggeriffic Day ~~~ta ta for now from Iowa:)

We need rain so badly even though we had those storms. But the wind has been so crazy that it has completely dried out the ground!...:)JP
