Sunday - Part II: NHWC Youth Service, Clouds and Crow

Looks like rain today. . .clouds everywhere.
 Youth gave the service today.
 Step Dancers are fantastic.
 Jordan Mathais. . .son of the Pastors Mathais. . gave the sermon today.
He was moving around quickly but I captured him.
Excellent young man. . . amazing words and thoughts.
 More clouds at home.

 The crow landed on the light post and began talking to me.
Everyone deserves someone who makes them look forward to tomorrow.

Moon and Stars

Two stars last night. . .bright evening Star.
 Waxing Gibbous Moon 95 percent full.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.

Clouds, Ibis, Flowering Bush and Memories: Free Motion Sewing

Dark Clouds are forming. 
 There is always a blue sky hole no matter how cloudy.
 Dark clouds from all sides.

 This little Ibis is a bit different. . . looking for bugs.
 Ibis grazing and. . .
 .  .on the move.
 One of our flowering bushes.

 Memories:  After retiring I took a Free Motion sewing class.
This was the results. I was pretty pleased the first time around
that it had turned out to actually look like a flower.

Clouds, Sunshine, Starbucks and Memories

 Lots of Clouds and Sunshine
 Yesterday was 'feels like' 90s.
 . . .and do you hear the roar of the lion!
 OK, so 'my' Target has a Starbucks.

Once upon a time, long long ago, I lived in another state.  We had a big house, where my kids grew up.  I drew it (first pic).  On the other side of the garage is a basketball hoop on the tree. Yes, one of my daughters played basketball.  She was #11, I believe.

I was thinking of making it the center of a quilt. I took the pictures (bottom) to print it out on cloth.  There was an acre of land. Trees were the whole back half. At the side I had a garden. . .I canned, froze and we ate well. Ice, Snow, -25 degree temps. . .well, we moved. But the memories of that house and those times are still with me.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. ~ Rumi

Clouds and Landscape. . . .and . . . ..Memories

Clouds and Sunshine in the East.
 Not sure, but I think they are planning to rumble later today.
 Clouds and blue sky toward the north.
 Two of my backyard trees.
 Poor thing is so Miss-shaped. . . Argh. . .Trimmers!
 New Palm Tree and MY tree. . .
This tree has been around for about 25 years.
It belonged to my late-fiance, Steve.
I have this tree and a potted plant
(wherein I added my plant to his - same species)
Flowers still Bloom from it. It grows new and continues to thrive. . .see below.

Bromeliad . . it has been a beautiful plant all these 25 years
 The Pelican has Aloe in it and was given to me by my daughter Debra.
Life doesn’t get easier, you just get stronger.
