I love sunflowers!
One year I planted a whole bunch in my garden and then noticed the flower tops disappearing one at a time. I thought the neighborhood kids were messing with me, but turned out to be a hungry squirrel!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Hope you had a great day!

I was busy again today, I had to drive around and get immunization records and transcripts for my daughters college applications. And it is also my husbands birthday today. I had some last minute shopping to do. We had a nice dinner and cake at home tonight but we plan on going out to a restaurant over the weekend to celebrate. My oldest had to work this evening and I really didn't want to go out without her. The girls part time jobs make it tough for us to all be together. Seems like there is always at least one of them working. My youngest is the only one that doesn't have a job at the moment. It has been nice for her and for me. A lot less driving for me. But she has an interview next week so she may be back to work soon.
I hope everyone had a great day!!!
Happy Birthday to your Hubby!
