 well I've decided....
I'm just going to ignore the nasty weather we are having...

 it may not be Spring outside...
but it is Spring in my head...
in my heart....

 I pulled out some older photos....
they gave me the spring feeling...

I'm addicted to The Voice....
I love all the judges...

 I feel so fortunate...
that I have such a handsome...
sweet...loving...hardworking son...
and that he let me do a little 
photo shoot with him...
he doesn't like being in front of the camera...
not sure who he got that from....

 I did some Valentine photos...
of him and Stringbean ....
best Valentine gift for me....

 no one or animal get's a break around here...
they are all fare game around here....

they are my classes...
I get to play with my camera...
learn to use all the settings...
then play with them in PicMonkey if changes are needed...
 or if I just want to play....
I was looking in the storage building for something...
I ran across the bumble bee costume...
it had belonged to Nolan and Jake...
so I got a bright idea...
put it on the rabbits...
Buster didn't mind...
Duke didn't like it at all...
he tried to chew it off...
maybe he needs western ware...
another idea for play....
Can you imagine if I ever have a granddaughter...
oh boy you will really get tired of me...

 we are having some crazy weather here in Texas...
having all four seasons in just a few days...

 We even had a 3.5 earthquake....
Mother nature must be going through the big M...
 well at least spring is around the corner...
we are doing a family veggie garden this year...
it is a lot of work for one person (me)to keep up with...
so I enlisted the family...
we are in the planning stages...
will order seeds next week...

 Hubby and my son will do the tilling up...
the ladies and Hotrod will do the planting...
we will all help with the weeding...
The Rabbits are helping with the fertilizer...
Athena and Ginger have been doing a lot of digging in the garden
area...so maybe the tilling will be easier...
they will be in for a big surprise when they are banned from the 
garden area...

 be sure to let your dandelions grow...
they are great food for the bees...
we want to keep the bees well fed...
so they will take good care of our plants...
and to produce lot's of honey....


plus they make great cargo...
for Stringbeans jeep...

Texas Proud

 In Texas...
we are very proud of our state...
I haven't been to Austin since my son was a baby...
I haven't seen the Capitol building since I was a kid...
 I was very excited to see it...
and of course...
I had to take lot's of photos...
 it was a pretty quiet day....
not a lot going on outside...
we did not go inside...
 I found out later...
a childhood friend of mine that lives in the Austin area...
had been there just a few hours before us...
she was there for a ceremony...
her husband is an officer...

We had a very nice weekend...
but of course it is always nice to be back HOME...

 we have been having nice weather...
here in Texas...
Monday was in the upper 70's...
Stringbean has been wanting to swim...
so he talked his Pawpaw into it...
we have a hot water faucet outside...
so the water was nice and warm....

 he had a blast...
even puts his head under water no problem...


Ain't no body got time for this... 
he was actually making car sounds...
but it looks like when you can't get
your car started...the frustration...

We had a big group of blue jays...
and Mockingbirds...
chasing each other around...
through the trees...
I'm thinking it was a territory war...

Hump Day...


Just chillin'.....they have so much fun together....
Sometimes well most of the time odd things catch my eye and of course I have snap a shot or two or three....
Doing a little tire repair with Pawpaw's finger getters... As they call em...
Hey lady...you looking at me?
Happy Hump Day....
