Lakefront property...

we have had rain here...

lilac...
lots of lightening...
which makes one of my favorite things...

the tulips are starting to show some color...
nitrogen...

the south yard is flooded and we have more rain coming tomorrow...

I would bet we don't work out here this weekend...

the knock out roses are greening up fast...

columbine surged over night...

pear blossoms are opening...

and the trees are leafing out...

you can see hints of green everywhere you look now...

and the undergrowth is green, too...

the farmer really needs to tile again...
I would imagine his tile is clogged up...

peonies are up...

with the drought last year, they didn't get to finish blooming...
just tight blooms that faded away...

it really looks and feels like spring here...

so glad the winter is past for us...

Mr Wiggles does not like wet feet...
and he loves standing on this rock...
making green beans, bacon and potatoes this morning...
some potato salad...
going to fry some butterfly pork chops this evening for supper...
and I am thinking some chocolate chip cookie dough needs to be whipped up just in case we have the urge for something really good...

was up most of the night with the storms...
the critters took over my bed and it was just easier letting them have it...
got in a lot of me and God time...
praying for Boston...
our country...
the world...
just plan old peace in general...
you have to wonder what kind of tormented souls could do some of this stuff...
what have they seen and felt...
what if just one person would have shown them good?
would it have changed the lives of so many?
one smile, one helping hand, one kind gesture...
one hug...
one prayer...

what if WE...
as a whole...
and as individuals...
reached out to that one person who is bitter...
and we all know someone who everyone steers clear of because they are so sour...
would we change the world...
could we change the world...

its easy to be nice to nice people...
its a little bit harder being nice to a cranky pants...
but maybe its time we put some effort into this loving and caring thing...
I am looking for a cranky pants...
how about you?
;)

Some people are just evil, even when they are treated well.

What if I'm the cranky pants?
I bet some people would agree that that is me. ;-
RAKS are really easier and easier the more you do them-my mission is to do it for children, my side benefit is that most of them just light up with a simple smile or comment.
