Photo journaling-spring is springing!

Leftover leaves.  This pond near my house is the most beautiful shade of green in the spring.

Mr. Squirrel has been cleaning up under our bird feeder.

Here's Roc one frosty morning last week.  I love that you can see his breath.

Beam me up!

A sunny bedroom corner-it's so nice to see the sun!

Dog.  Cloud.  Tree.

It's April-Yay!

A sweet care package arrived in the mail from my friend, Tara.

This is part of a another care package-given to me by my friend, Dawnie.  (Her blog is full of wonderful recipes and I see she's having a giveaway!)  This mug is more like a bowl, it is huge!  (My friends know what I like!)

I hope spring is springing where you are, so you can go soak up some vitamin D!!!  Have a great week!

Photo journaling

Some photos from the last week or so:
I found these feathers in the woods.  (When I was after my dog!)  Aren't they beautiful?

This a corner of my sister's (Jodie) home.  This is the second quilt that I ever made, long ago.

Another little corner of my sister's (Jodie) home-a little peak of her new kitchen.

Taco dip that I made for my nephew's birthday party.  Good stuff!  The recipe is here.

Tad, dash, pinch, drop-gifts from my sister, Kim.

A walk with the Roc!  Sort of a forced walk for me, since he didn't listen to me when I told him not to go in the woods. (That's not a bear, that's Roc.)

I'm kind of glad he did force me, though, 'cause it was pretty!

I found lots of green.

I left this photo out of my last batch, by mistake-so I thought I'd add it here.

I finally picked up my camera on March 11th for the first time since February 20.  I took a pic of the sun (the sun!) shining into the dining room.

Punxsutawney Phil told me that winter is over.  He better not be lying!  (I ate with my parents at Punxsy Phil's Family Restaurant on Sunday.)

That's all for now-have a great week!

Photo journaling

Some photos from 2-17-14 to 2-20-14.  (I haven't picked up my camera since 2-20!)
Frosty morning

What a nutter

I think he'll be sad to see the snow go.  

I always was sad to see the snow go-BUT NOT THIS YEAR.

This day we had thunder snow.

My morning view on 2-20-surely spring will be here soon!

Welp, the last two weeks are a bit of a blur-I was really, really sick.  By the grace of God, and wonderful family and friends-I seem to be on the mend.  I won't go into all the yucky details, but it was quite hellish!  I will say-I found out that my vitamin D levels are very low.  Your vitamin D can be checked with a simple blood test and treated with a prescription vitamin D3 supplement.  If you seem to be feeling lousy and can't figure out why-I suggest you get yours checked.  

Hoping you all are healthy and happy!  Have a great weekend!

Photo journaling and a birthday

Mama cardinal is looking just beautiful with her orange lip.

The Roc-striking a pose.

Tiny feather

A birthday!  I am now the mother of a 22 year old-unbelievable!

This photo by Jodie!

I tell her-look natural, look natural!  She says-how, howwww?

Oh, and she has a cat now.  Isn't he handsome???  (Of course, I'm taking pictures!)

I just love this selfie she sent me!  (She actually had a grumpy face here, but I cropped it off-ha!)

Well-that's all for now.  Have a great week, everybody!

Square pictures

A day last week I used my new iPod (Christmas gift) to take some photos, using the hipstamatic app.  (I hadn't used that app for a long time.) I hadn't been taking many photos with my old iPod, because the quality of the photos wasn't very good.  My new iPod takes much clearer photos. 

Mugshot!  Hope is, sometimes, the tea and the chocolate.

Mugshot!  (I love looking at the mugshots at woodbird, them mornings.)

A corner

Chili, because it's CHILLY!

Another corner

Punk!  That little black thing is Rocco returning from the woods.  I screamed at him not to go over there-but there's a dead deer in there and if he gets it in his head he wants to go see it, nothing will stop him.

Close-up of the punk-er I mean Rocco.

Close-up of the wintry woods.

Rocco's favorite thing in the world!
