Evening sunlight

I liked the way the evening sunlight hit this--not sure what it is. I am wondering if it is sawgrass. I have tried to find a good image of it and no luck so far. Feel free to tell me what it really is in the comments if you know. It was growing at the edge of a cattail pond/big puddle. I am not sure what the correct term is...not really big enough to be called a pond, but bigger than a puddle. I am sure if and when the frequent rains stop, that they will be dry, but for right now seem to hold just enough water to keep things going.

I am enjoying a semi-lazy have some things I need to do but had rather just sit and do nothing. Roger fixed a pork roast on the grill while I cooked breakfast, so after a bit, we will have it along with whatever else I decide to fix.

Roger's buddy taught him a way to fix pork roasts. Of course there are no measurements...but he coats the outside with black pepper, sage, and garlic. Then cooks it on low heat on the grill till it is done. The outside is usually sort of crispy, and the inside tender and juicy, and is delicious. I have not decided which pork roast is best for fixing this way...we don't fix them that often and I forget which was good and which was just so-so.

I had best get moving, and try to do something constructive. Little Miss Lorelei keeps me busy through the week. She is such a funny little girl...she looks for Shelby when we ask her 'Where's Shelby?" and she almost always smiles at her, and sometimes laughs. There seems to be no certain thing that makes her laugh.

And either Wednesday or Thursday, I had given her her mid-day bottle and had put her up to burp her. She started snuggling down into me...hard to explain it but it is just something she does. Then she laughed a little bit. Well, I keep a hand mirror sitting there so I turned it to where she could see herself and she really started laughing. I called for her Grandpa to come see and hear. He started talking to her and then there were these big belly laughs....I had him get me the phone and I quick called Sarah so she could here. I laughed till I cried....

Then Friday both her mom and dad came to pick her up early, and Jeremy was singing the song Lorelei by Styx to her, and using a crazy voice to sing in, and she was totally captivated. Her grin could not have been any bigger. He is such a good daddy to her.
