I have a little helper,
A very good daughter,
she'll clean your every dish.
She helps me with the vacuuming,
And putting toys away.
Getting things tidy,
To play another day.
I'm not advocating child labor.
Children shouldn't work for free.
So I feel very fortunate,
she wants to do all this for me.
Now, I'm not saying she is perfect.
She can be a total fright.
But when she's feeling helpful,
She's an absolute delight.

Had a chance to sleep in today, which of course I grabbed with both hands! So it kinda threw my watering schedule off, but I was able to accomplish it late afternoon, when it wasn't so hot.
Up in the 90's today, and some small bursts of wind that were pretty strong. Apricots are close to being ripe, can't wait. Hopefully the squirrels will let us have them this year.
Here's an easy gift to make for Father's Day. Simply right mouse click on the image, save to your computer, then print onto stock paper and then cut out and paste picture of your child in the middle. Thread a string or thread through the top to make a hanger. These can be laminated as well to last longer.
