this little bird hit our window and died instantly.
a quick watercolor sketch and we buried it in the zen prairie plot.
it saddened me that the beautiful bird died this way.
i went for my first summer swim in medicine creek today.
greg had to sit on the banks since his leg has a giant wound
from a brown recluse spider bite. two months and the tissue is
still being scraped out by the doctor and the wound has not shrunk
one iota. he is bummed about not being able to sail or swim. me too.
i've had a major disappointment. the vegetable garden
was attacked by a grasshopper army. they seemed to laugh at
my home-made natural bug repellant. i put so much time and
effort into my garden.... not sure if the plants can recover.
also, three healthy potted tomato plants that i've been
babying for weeks got battered by a severe hailstorm tonight.
who knows? the rest of the garden may be demolished as well.
i'm hoping the hailstorm smashed the grasshoppers to pieces!
nature has been harsh lately.
odd and random.... a chunk of hail knocked an antler
off this mini elk that stands in a cactus plant. this feels
strangely symbolic to me. . . .
abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram
caught by its horns. he went over and took the ram and
sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.
God will provide.
