WOW I am humbled to tears

Yesterday I stated that I had wrote a poem and then today I received a message saying I had been immortalized in a riddle. I went to check it out and this is the link to the page. I hope you all find it interesting.

I hope you will check it out. and yes I did cry!!!

Only portrait

I came across the only portrait ever done of my husband and also realized it was the only portrait that I also had ever done.. It is a very good likeness and he was pleased with it.. Maybe I better stop while I am ahead, and go back to the wicked stick men..I'm great at those..LOL
I have been busy going through antiques and tools in the garage so that my dream of an art gallery can become a reality.. Tons to go through, I just hope they don't accidentally tag me..
I have let mother nature take care of the watering of my flowers, and she did a good job last night. So good to hear the rain falling, makes for good sleeping..

What was that??

At 3:27 AM, I was startled from my sleep by a tremendous boom. Then I saw lightening and another roar. I later found out that a tornado had touch down here in Grandy and was headed for the Currituck Beach Lighthouse across the sound about 5 miles as the crow flies. Oh well, so much for a full nights sleep.
I'm just glad it was over quick and without any damage. I just received pictures from what hit my home area of Michigan last night so it was a little unnerving to say the least. Oh yes, of coarse Omaha, NE. as well..My knees are beginning to get flat spots from all the praying..
Good news, my "Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate" flowers have reached the eves of my patio. I am so proud of my flowers this year. But camera has let me down. I now have to replace the card. It wasn't the batteries at all.
Shall I continue.
A bouquet of roses appeared on my porch with a card from my husband. If you've read my blog or know me you know that hasn't been possible since he died in December. Then one week later, Belgium chocolate hand dipped strawberries and huge cookies arrive. Same message. So after calling my Dr. he sent the paramedics over to get my vitals. I finally over came this mess by laughing and saying, "Hubby would have went to my flower garden, picked me a bouquet and put them in what ever vase was handy, not a Waterford Crystal vase". No way can you use a credit card from heaven.. I guess it helps to have a sense of humor every now and again.
Let's see now, I really should find something else to do but can't work outside because our temperatures have been so hot. Yesterday 100 degrees in the shade. This is not normal. It has cooled a little today because of the rain, or whatever went through this morning. I think I will read for a while, but I will probably get into trouble doing that, it seems of late I can manage without ever leaving the house. Maybe that's what I'm doing wrong!!
