Another week come and gone

I always love to see photos of cows under trees, but the photos I take are never great. Yet there is just something restful about them whether they are good or not. Just seeing cattle resting and chewing their cud makes everything seem right with the world.
Our little Toot stayed two nights with us, cried when we told her it was time to go home...told Papaw as he put her in her carseat that she was afraid she was going to miss her Mamaw. However, she was his constant shadow those days.

I don't have a lot to tell, but will tell this little incident. She wanted to sleep with me so I let her. Now what you don't know is a lot of us in our family like our back tickled, scratched or rubbed. Lorelei is following suit and most nights wants her back scratched a little bit before going to sleep.

The first night she wanted me to scratch her back. I told her she first had to scratch mine...just wanted to see her reaction. She says, "Mamaw, do I have too?" and I tell her yeah...and we go back and forth with it...she says, "Mamaw, I have an idea!" I asker her what it is.

Now this is not her exact words, but it was something along the lines of 'First you can scratch my back and then later you can scratch my back'....I cannot for the life of me remember her wording...but her meaning was just that...she was totally leaving out the part of her scratching my back...and she just giggled when she said it and said something along the lines of How do I like that idea? She is just too smart for words.
We are finally getting some much needed rain...has been raining steadily all morning long.
