Sitting on the wrap around porch in the morning and evening was very pleasant... there's always a cool breeze blowing. The dogs and chickens usually sat with us.

If you aren't familiar with Fixer Upper and Joann and Chip, they have basically put Waco, Texas on the map. Google Magnolia Market at the Silos and it will explain it all.
And I have a question... we often find this flower on my daughter's property and don't know what it is. Looks kind of like a violet - of some sort?
What do you think?
Oh, another thing... DH came home with the movie, "Arrival" on DVD yesterday evening (he does this when there's nothing good on TV that night). Anyway, we watched it and it was interesting (to say the least)... and a bit confusing. I told him that I needed to watch it again today to see if I understood what it was saying.
So... if any of you have seen it, this is what I got:
The language expert (a woman) starts off the show saying that it all started when THEY arrived. She and the Scientist are helping humans try to communicate with the newly arrived Alien ships. During the time they are trying to learn their language, she has visions/dreams(?) of a birth, a young child, and that child dying.
As it turns out, she finally determines that they are giving humans *a gift*... and in return will need humans to help them in 3000 years. The gift is their own language... (they explain in the movie that language in general does something to the brain - and determines how you think). The Alien language is not vocal/spoken and maybe because of the way it uses the brain, looks at time differently and allows one to know the future. They give this gift to the language expert (the woman)... and it is given in 12 parts (one part from each of 12 Alien ships that have landed all over the world). It is given this way to let humans know that the whole world must work together/co-operate. Once the gift is given, the ships disappear.
If anyone else has seen this movie, I would love to know if this is even close to what you got.
