You Can Enter Giveaway Until Midnight Friday EDT

When we were lighting the candles on the porch last night, we saw this moth! His wing span reached from the tip of my pinkie finger to my wrist bone! It was amazing. Its' size reminded me of the huge swallowtail moths that we used to catch in Arkansas when I was growing up. I've heard that moths are drawn to open flames. I wonder if that is true. He came before the candles were lit.
Thank you so much for your kind comments about the interview. AND also, thank you for joining the giveaway party. There is still time to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. Just scroll down to the posting below.

Some of you have told me you read this blog EVERY day. That amazes me! I am humbled. I had no idea that it would be of interest to you. So in consideration of your time, I just wanted to update you this morning and let you know that I will not do another posting until Saturday when I announce the "WINNER" of my give away.

I'm focused. I'm full steam ahead (whatever that means). I've got my teeth clinched. My muscles flexed. Well now that created quite an image. Didn't it? I'm determined to wrap up a couple of projects before the first day of summer arrives and these weeks are gone!

May this day bring you happiness. Search for it in the small blessings if you need to!
Love, Rachel

I have found one of these sleeping in my garden the other day. I posted a picture of him on my blog, the post after the giveaway, if you'd like to see mine.

The moth is beautiful. We had one on our screen tonight but he was a pee wee compared to yours. I've always loved coming here and think I need to add it to my daily morning ritual again (as soon as I'm finished with my time off). Off to enter that giveaway!

I love my porch! It wraps 3/4 of the way around my house. We spend lots of time out on it just watching the sunsets reflect off the pond. Thanks for sharing your blog.
