Is there anything more beautiful or smell any nicer than a Gardenia? These are by my front door and they are heavenly.
We have had the most beautiful cloud formations the last week I have ever seen. So unusual for California to have thunderstorms in June, or any month as far as that goes. The most magnificent thunder and huge bolts of lightening. I know that you people that live in the midwest aren't very impressed with our thunderstorms but I just love them. We had those deep blue/black clouds boil up and move right over us with really big rain drops and lots of noise. We live a mile from downtown Redding and we had about 1/2 inch of rain and downtown had about 8 inches of rain. Mother nature is just splendid.
I have been painting my back grounds for my class. They are really a lot of fun. I always have problems keeping up with the instructions but at least I can watch the videos any time of day or night. I am a night owl and painting at night is very relaxing. I am going to have a collection of these background papers to play with and that will keep me busy after my surgery.
I was informed today that I have 3 grandchildren that are pregnant. Talk about something in the water........I think it is carried in the wind. Great grand children are such a blast. I just love counting all of those little baby toes and fingers and the smell of babies is just heavenly. I like being a great grandma. Probably better than my kids like being grandparents. Each generation is more beautiful and precious than the last and that is how it should be. It all makes me feel so special and right with the universe.
