The hard part was that, even though I didn't know the deceased, I was watching her daughter throughout the service. She was wrecked. And so was I. As the tears ran down my face I was thinking of my own mother. I was concerned that singing would be a problem, but in the end it wasn't. It did make me think that I don't want to sing at very many more funerals. Rough morning!
OK – now onto the pictures for the week.

We have our first blossoms from the wildflower seeds Dr. M planted in our front flower bed. We're very excited to see what all comes up.
Tomato update! Dr. M put some of the plants in pots outside & kept these inside (we still don't trust our May weather just yet). I feel like such a proud mama.

Dr. M took a picture of a lamb in the twilight. It's a little spooky looking. Some of his Facebook friends called him Twi-Lamb, but one of them thought he was a Weresheep.
Dr. M took some more nature pictures on Wednesday. I was highly amused by the gray squirrel chasing the fox squirrel away.
Here is a blue jay – I thought he got a nice shot.
And I just love this flower picture!

On Thursday the Twi-Lamb picture was freaking out too many people on Facebook, so Dr. M replaced that picture with this one of our sock monkey with a Serta Sheep in a half-nelson. It's Dr. M's summer break (although he's teaching one course a week right now), which means large amounts of silliness on Facebook. Can you tell?

Here's the latest pig picture. I think the frog has a fishing pole. That made Dr. M & me think of the Crawdad Song :
You get a line and I'll get a pole, Honey,
You get a line and I'll get a pole, Babe.
You get a line and I'll get a pole,
We'll go fishin' in the crawdad hole,
Honey, Baby mine.
I also took a picture of the sky after a thunderstorm. I just thought it was cool looking.

Today Dr. M surprised me by taking me to Lowe's to get a swing for our back yard. We had a nice time putting it together (I was #1 assistant).
And then afterward we sat on it while I read the paper. I envision a lot of evenings like this – heaven!
