If somedays I have questions

about why I live here. When somedays I wonder what on earth we're doing here. I remind myself that God had a reason.

And then there is this. We were patio dwellers in Arizona. We spent incredible amounts of time on the back patio. Visiting, doing homework, on the phone, anything we could.

Yesterday I came home from work to find my darling youngest daughter doing this.

We took many naps on our screened porch last summer. We read out there. Visited out there. Enjoyed the mosquito free weather out there. And, friends, the mosquitos are already here. (I admitted it. whew!)
This young lady is our baby. She'll always hear that. She's use to it. :) Somedays I think that Jari & I are getting old and losing our eyesight. If she's napping on the couch in the living room ... and facing the wall ... we have to check to see which daughter it is. She has sprouted. She's taken over Alyx's pants ... and the length works for her. The hair color. All of it. This morning I feel a whole lot better. I know she's tired. She can't keep her eyes open and is actually sleeping with her head on the computer "table" next to me. She looked at this picture and thought it was her sister. I had to go elsewhere to view it screen size for her. :) I feel younger already!
With this temp here yesterday ... I should have taken a nap out there as well!
I giggled to see these when I got home. The zinnias were up on Monday already. Was hoping for a few more things yesterday ... but didn't expect this much!
Instead of taking a nap ... I cut apart used milk jugs for planting. :)
