Day 101; Footnotes of Sunday in the Nursery and oh Look, Its National Pet Day

 Have I mentioned, I’m sure I have, that I really love helping in the nursery at church? Those two and three year old kids are so much fun, even when they are challenging. That moment when they have to have the block or crayon or truck that another has. Even though there are dozens of other blocks, crayons and three other trucks and various vehicles not being played with. Its all good though.


When they sit there and tell you correctly color after color of the crayons. When they show you things in the coloring books that you didn’t think they would know. When their understanding and comprehension is off the charts, its amazing. Even if  their arrival does start with not wanting to be separated from their parent. It usually doesn’t take long before they are fully distracted in play. Spending time with those kids is incredible. It makes your heart smile, your spirit life and the big kid trapped inside out to play for a while.


I mentioned on my social media page how as I was driving home from church this morning, I had to make a stop at a local store. Leaving here as I went through an intersection and headed home, I saw a familiar jeep approaching. They waved! Its a Jeep thing to wave at each other, but since I don’t drive a Wrangler, it rarely happens. My son laughed at me as I described it later. He knows I suffer from Wrangler envy, so for my not a wrangler–well wait–okay, so as I said, this was a familiar Jeep, so we have been at some of the same events, so maybe instead of simply acknowledging another Jeep, they were waving at me?! That’s even better.

Speaking of, I had hoped to attend a jeep event today, but I didn’t sleep well last night and once I got sat down at home, it was all I could do to stay awake. In fact, I didn’t. Which was annoying on many levels.


I did manage at one point to walk out to check on the flowers I had planted after last night’s rain. They all actually looked really good. I noticed that that it appears something has been eating a bush I planted last year. I need to find a way to try and save what is left of it before what ever is doing the munching, finishes it off.

I need a better calendar. I had no idea until just a bit ago, that today is National Pet Day. I almost missed another National what ever day. So, in honor of pet day, here are a few photos of the spoiled ones.
