We have a wonderful old home just down the street from us. The owners also have a little antique store around the corner…great place to browse.
Once must always make time to stop & smell the roses.
Remember my little chickadee family…..since i don’t have a digital camera many of my photos are uploaded after the moment.
Here is a picture of momma or daddy birdie entering their little home.
We have seen the little family many times since the infamous evening where we feared for the little one’s life…post birdhouse flop. Anyway, they come & perch on our back windows. We have seen about 5 of them in the trees ~ big birdies feeding the little ones. And also splashing around in the bird bath. My girls are familiar with their song so they let me know when they are “out back”!
I love this man.
He is my favorite friend…that’s our little nickname-well one of them anyway.
He is my sweetheart.
He is my soul mate.
He is my hero.
We spent 8 hours together last night in the emergency room. He was having some unusual symptoms~a weird all over sensation, he felt flush , & he had a strange sensation down his arm. I was headed out the door to work. He asked me to stay with him….this is completely out of character for him.
We drove to the hospital , signed in & they did an EKG.
We waited & waited, we read the paper & my magazines, we talked, we made calls to our friends, we snacked , we laughed, & we snuggled, and we prayed.
They ran a slew of tests- all of which came back negative. The doctor chalked it up to stress & told us to followup with his primary care doctor. Dan was relieved that they found nothing. The nurse in me wants to know what was going on.
I love that man.
He is an amazing man. He is selfless, kind, gentle, romantic, funny , handsome, tender, and loyal.
He married me and became an instant father to three fatherless little girls.
He became a new daddy two years later. These four precious girls are so privileged & fortunate to call him Daddy.
I love that man.
Not a day goes by that I forget to thank the Lord for bringing him to me.
He is my happily ever after.
She teaches out of her home. Madison takes on Mondays with 3 other kids.
I take on Friday mornings with two other ladies.
I usually work in oils while Madison will either work with acrylics or do sketches.
Kaly asked me Friday if she could paint a portrait of Caroline.
Let me think a moment…..
YES!!! ABSOLUTELY!!!!!OF COURSE!!!!
She has chosen the close-up from Caroline’s day in the tulips.
I can’t wait!
