A Glorious Day

I love this time of year.  Early sunrise, beautiful warm mornings (my favorite time of day), lots of interesting nature to watch as I sat quietly on my front porch, gently rocking back and forth on the rocking-chair.  But most of all I love the bird song, a pure symphony of riotous joy as the birds hailed in a new day. Glorious!

Of course today was extra special...Father's Day, and I waited with quiet anticipation for the rest of the household to rouse. We had quite the day planned.  A pancake breakfast, followed by a picnic and hike at Backbone State Park in Eastern Iowa. It was a terrific day, lots of fun, laughter, and some interesting trees, plants, and insects to examine.
It was quite the day, one to remember.  I hope all the dads out there had a great day too.

Thanks for checking in. xx
