I was on a website a few minutes ago that had instructions how to clean silver. At the bottom of the page I momentarily thought I saw some religious symbols. One was obviously a symbol of the Holy Spirit and the other of the Son. Then I moused over them and realized they were not a cross and a dove but rather:
Earlier this evening I told myself I really should water my plants, if not fertilize them, as today was a rather hot day (by Western Washington standards). But then the heavens did the watering for me.
In other news, the weather was highly changeable today, as it often is here, especially in spring, I guess. Anyway, it was sunny and pleasant when I walked my dog at around 7:00 a.m., but it was rainy and chilly when we left for the doctor's office at a little past noon. Then it got nice again in the evening.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, here's a picture from this weekend of my purple petunias.
I'm feeling a bit of time pressure. I did do some studying and thinking even during my brother's visit, and even made some notes. This weekend on Friday evening and Saturday during the day, my own congregation, at Third Christian Reformed Church of Lynden, is having an important conference for church members, and I do plan to attend. So I would like to have my sermon as done as possible before the weekend.
Tonight I am sitting down to it. I am working my way into it by blogging about needing to prepare. Hopefully that gets my mind turned toward my message.
Finally a dry weekend. Went to the Farmers Day Parade on Saturday, and had coffee with my folks in the afternoon.
Today I had coffee with some cousins, bought groceries with my brother's upcoming visit in mind, and planted flowers. I planted flowers well into the evening. The days are nice and long now, as we are only three weeks from the longest day of the year. I am so tired now that I need to head to bed, so I'll just say: Begonias, petunias, lavender, and nicotiana. With a little bacopa here and there.
