Letter From Home/June 2020

Good Morning Everyone,

What a beautiful day we had today! The sun came up by 6:00 AM in a clear sky. There were some fluffy scattered clouds throughout the day with a clear blue sky for a background. The temperature was very pleasant. A wonderful blessing/gift from God.

The laundry that was hung out on the clothesline dried beautifully. The garden plants and flowers are growing well. I noticed that some critter, or whatever it is, is eating my pea plants at night. I give credit to the rabbits, but I’m not sure.

Just as I glanced out the window 2 Orchard Orioles came to the oriole feeder. They are not as bright as the Baltimore, but beautiful anyway. The birds are quite busy at the feeder the last while. It seems like they are getting food for their babies.

The little green plants of corn lined up in tidy rows across the fields are getting bigger and bigger. A lot of hay has been made. The strawberries are in season and taste delicious.

June 27 is the day for the Ohio Crippled Children’s Fund Auction to take place in Mt. Hope. If you plan to come and want to make sure it is not cancelled you may want to call 330-674-6188.

The following I took out of an activity book called “Cheerful Days Ahead”. The challenge is to see if you can read this paragraph:
“I cdnoul’t blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The pheonmneal pweor of the human mind, aoccdrnig to a rseearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the human mind deos not raed ervey lterer by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig, huh? Yaeh, and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!”

Quote from “Best of Hearts” flip calendar:
“Humility is a strange thing. The moment you say you’ve got it, you’ve lost it.”

Have a good month,
Sovilla
