Flitter, flutter, dart and beating wings
Hummingbirds

Winding, purr, soft, and claws
Kittys

Tall and straight, bent, green, and brown
Trees

Splashing, cool, wet and soothing
Fountain

Writer

Kids, learning, reading, riting, and arithmetic
Teachers

Understands, forgiving, mind-reader
Friend

Graceful, unique smell, fast and long-legged
Horse

Native Americans, sand, burrs and beautiful nights
New Mexico

Mine, favorite, drink, hot and cold
Mug

Destruction, damage, death and burn

A Baker's Dozen. More later . . .


Have you checked out Cindy's interview, Friday, July 13th. Do it, for a chance to get one of her books!




Surviving the rest of summer hints:

  • Don't like creepy crawly insects enjoying your picnic? Place the legs of the picnic table in containers of water. Ants can't swim.
  • Baby wipes will temporarily soothe bug bites.
  • Use apples to ripen your tomatoes. Place in a container with a lid.
  • Put tomatoe-stained plastic containers out in the sun where it can bleach out the stains.
  • Leave uncut watermelons out on the counter--helps keep their health-friendly levels of lycopene. Store in fridge only after they've been cut.
  • Want a good night's sleep? Spend at least 30 minutes a day outside in natural light.




Quote:
The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.
