Book Birthday!

🎂 This week SUGAR BIRDS turned a year old—and what a year it’s been!

Hop on over to Amazon and see what she’s been up to HERE!

YOU helped take her there. 🧡

I’m grateful beyond words. Thank you all for welcoming her so, so warmly and helping her find her place in the world.

And now, a few of the week’s pics:


Right there on the lowest branch of one of our apple trees, chest high to our pups, within feet of our walking trail: these.

Bald-faced hornets.

No harm, no foul.



Water Pup Daisy, already resourceful at five months old.

When the temps passed 90, here’s where we could usually find her. 😆


When your wake wiggles.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
—Proverbs 3:6


And a couple of 2019 TBs (Throwbacks):


“Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.”

—John 16:32b


Ripening blackberries resemble green eggs in nest

“Say! I like green eggs . . .”

—Dr. Seuss.

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

—Jeremiah 33:3


Thanks for stopping by, friends. So glad you’re here.
