Checking out the Crops

My brother drove me over to the next town last week. We were very surprised to see that some crop fields are totally green. You could not see the rows already. That means they are really far ahead of schedule. I am sure the farmers are delighted. I hope this great weather continues so they have a bumper crop this year. It is so neat to see those first little corn spears coming out of the ground. Then it isn't long and they are knee high. They will be much taller by the 4th of July this year.

Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day and our town has a great service in Central Park today. It is a beautiful sunny day. It is 67 degrees already and going for 80. They put up hundreds of flags in the park and all up and down the main street. It is quite a sight to see. The cemetery is full of flowers and everything is beautiful.

Huge Moon

Did you get to see the moon when it was so close to earth? I hope so as it was quite a sight to see. I looked out and at first it was bright orange like a Harvest Moon. Then as it climbed above the trees, it became white and you could almost make out hills and valleys on the moon. We always looked for the man in the moon's face but this was so close you could see more. It was quite something to see and won't be that close for several years again.

After the rain, it is always so nice to see a beautiful rainbow. It is a double pleasure to see a double rainbow. This was a really good photo taken by my daughter near her home. We had too many trees in the way to see it all but could see some of it. I don't think we ever tire of seeing rainbows, God's promise never to destroy the earth again with flooding.

My Hummingbird Feeder

I put my hummingbird feeder out just in time. The orioles have been visiting it along with several different hummingbirds. The syrup I use comes from a mix in a box and is a bright red. However, with the sun so hot this year, it turns the syrup clear. It is already clear which is unusual this early of the year. They don't seem to mind though as it tastes the same, I guess and the feeder is red itself. I love seeing the beautiful orange and black orioles.

Bachelor Party

My grandson is getting married in June. Today is his bachelor's party. A bunch of the guys are going to play golf, their favorite sport. The women are preparing lots of luscious food for them whenever they get back from celebrating. They are going to have a fun time. It kind of looks like rain here but they are farther away and should have a great sunny day. It is 60 degrees already and should get warmer so they will probably all have tans.

Armor All Extreme Shield Wax

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Armor All for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have used Armor  All on our cars ever since we bought our first car.  One of the reasons is that is does such a great job of preserving the finish on your car and it is so easy to use.   We used to spend hours waxing the car but we had to have it in the shade and be sure the paint was not hot when we did it.  Then we discovered Armor All and it is wonderful. Now with  Extreme Shield Wax things are easier than ever.  You can use it on your vehicle anywhere in sun or shade.  And it so great to be able to put something on that is easy to wipe off again without needing to use a machine to rub it in and off.    How would you like toenter a sweepstakes to win a new Camaro SS signed by Tony Stewart!  Just go to Face book and "like" Armor All and follow the instructions to enter their 'what Life Did to your Car' contest.  It is so easy and I did that because we have been fans of Armor All for many years.  Check out  ArmorAllnonsampleBlogCopy.doc .  See how easy it is to apply Armor All.  We all want to help our vehicles look their best as long as possible and I love it when someone says "what have you done to your car, it looks so good".   Next they ask if we had it waxed or detailed and we tell them no, that we did it ourselves in no time at all.  Most people do not realize that vehicles pick up road grime on their paint jobs and with very little effort and Armor All, they can polish the finish so it takes off that grime and renews the paint job so it just shines and you can use it on any automotive finish safely.

Great Grandchildren are Growing

My, but my great grandchildren are growing up fast. They change so quickly. Kailyn will soon be going to PreSchool this fall. And the baby isn't a baby anymore. He's 5 months old already. These four little cousins have so much fun together. It reminds me of our kids and my sister and brother-in-laws kids. They were all around the same ages and had such good times together too.

Special Moon

I hope you all got to see the Super Moon the other night. It was so spectacular. When it first came up it was all orange like a Harvest Moon. Since it was so close to earth, it was huge. You could see land mass on the moon. It was intriguing to see and hard to keep from looking at it again and again.

Big Rains and Large Hail

Everything went North of us but heard the rain came down really hard and fast and lots of it. The hail seems to be getting bigger and bigger everywhere. It was quarter size in lots of places. In some places it was the size of a fifty cent piece. I know other States have had baseball, softball and golf ball size hail. The Bible says in the last days we will have hail so big it weighs 32 pounds. I can't even imagine that. Think of the damage it will do and people it will kill if they aren't in a protected place.
