Thirty Words Thursday

Laundry 
Never ending
Growing while we are sleeping
Wash
Dry
Fold 
Put away
 repeat
A load  in the washer 
Another in the dryer
Even the dryer has a sad face

Thirty Words Thursday

I can't remember the last time I did a thirty words Thursday
Yesterday I found a nest in one of our trees and saw some sweet blue eggs.
So it seems it's worthy enough to share


Three beautiful eggs in the nest
Mama was startled when I took the photo
She screamed at me and fled the nest
Papa bird was there and giving me fits




 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...
Take an image (preferably one you shot, or have permission to use). 
Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.
 
Post it each Thursday.
 
Add your link to the InLinkz on my 30 Words Thursday post.

(InLinkz code will be open for one week.)  
Enjoy seeing the verse and vision others have captured by visiting them and leaving a comment.

On a Sunday Drive

After being cooped up for several days with a very bad bug and a trip to the hospital (I'll spare you from the details)  my thoughtful husband suggested a drive in the country.We found a whole community we never knew existed.

I love old barns

Stone drain 

Another lovely barn. I like the soft weeds in front

Barely standing but still working

But the most amazing thing we discovered was a tiny Swedish Cemetery
Twins-a baby boy and girl.sadly there were a lot of children that died early 

A huge tree Swalloing up this tombstone

i wonder if these will be swalloed up too.
Oddly most of the stones indicates how long the person lived rather then showing the date of death.

Another baby Rosa. A rattle and  what looks like a favorite toy was carved on the stone

A very old stone

I hope you get out discover new things
