Set out my new pink dogwood today. Took a while to find the right spot for it. But it is in the ground and watered, giving off a small amount of shade to the brown tree frog that came to live in the stump of a former sugar tree that fell a few years back.… Continue reading Random Thoughts Friday
Rain. Rain. Rain. Some have called it monsoon season. There has been flooding and the pond with chirping little frogs has returned across the street where water forms when there is too much rain. Driving has been difficult. But other than that it has been a good day. We went to church and had one… Continue reading Sunday Sundaes
Today I went to a lovely outdoor wedding for the son of a dear friend of mine. It was a nice celebration of the beginning of their lives together. The weather was beautiful for it. Not like we'd seen the last three or four weeks because it has rained each Saturday except for today.

I believe this is because when I was very young my brother and I loved to play in newly cut grass. This is just a speculation on my part, but… Continue reading Sunday Sundaes

There are plenty still left to fall. I see it on campus, along the interstate as I… Continue reading Falling Leaves Blowing Everywhere
The fog rolled in off the Tennessee River this morning drifting up toward the skyline as the sun peeked through the clouds. It was a beautiful East Tennessee morning even if the temp was a crisp 61 degrees. A little cooler than we've had in a while. But not cool enough to really need a… Continue reading Crisp Monday
