4 Day Work Week (at work)......

In my previous post I mentioned a wedding I went to last weekend......if you would like to see a few more pics of the wedding please go to my photography blog at Linda Segerson Photography. While you are there I would like to invite you to please check out some of my other photos....I would love to read your comments on them.

Only a 4 day work week....YEAH! I loved my long 3 day weekend off last week but it sure was hard to go back to work after being off that extra day.

I keep an old stainless steel mixing bowl out under a tree in the front yard filled with water (I thought) for my squirrels and the other day I was standing in the kitchen looking out the window and saw one of the squirrels take his paw and pull the bowl over to look inside and it was heart sank....I felt so sorry for him, he was looking for water. Shame on me for not keeping it I immediately went outside and filled it. Now I keep a check on the bowl about every other day and keep fresh water in it. 
"boy do I feel better" 

This cemetery dates back to early 1800's
Hubby & I rode around looking for grave sites of relatives on Monday, Memorial Day, and I was able to get some shots of a couple of barns. I will be posting the barn shots on my photography site soon......

Family Time..........

We have had a busy but wonderful weekend......lots of "Family Time"!

Friday night I took my mother-in-law to her nieces wedding......
 My hubby took our picture after the wedding while we were still dressed up, I was so ready to get my PJ's on and relax. My mother-in-law spent the night and all the next day with us......
it was a great visit.

The bride was beautiful and they make a very sweet couple....
 I pray they build a beautiful and long life together.
 Sunday, hubby and I went with our daughter, son-in-law and our two precious grandsons to the Nashville, Tn Zoo.........we had a wonderful and fun time together.

Caleb loves dinosaurs....he is counting the dinosaurs teeth.
Grandpa, Kelby, Caleb & Me (Grandma)
Our daughter (Sheila), Kelby, Caleb & son-in-law (Quade)

It was very "HOT" but we did not let that hinder us from having a great time....we drank lots of water and wore hats....this zoo was the greatest....lots of shade and places to cool off.....we had so much to see and do. After a fun day at the zoo we went back home with them and stayed the night....hated to leave them this morning but back to work tomorrow.
 Hope all of you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend....
God Bless "all" of our soldiers!

Not really.........just our little Squirrel friends......

I know some people don't like squirrels but I love to watch and shoot them (with my camera)....and yes I know they are from the rodent family but you just got to admit that they are "so cute".
By the way I took my window screens down in the kitchen (just above the sink) to get better pics...those darn things just get in the way of a good shot. 

These were taken Saturday through my kitchen window... 
without the screens....
much much better!
 You just gotta admit that this little fellow is the cutest....the first pic looks like a garden statue.

These pics were taken this morning on our back deck......
 looks as though it's saying his/her prayer before breakfast.
So sweet....stopped to give me a pose.....yeah right!

Hope you have had a great weekend and hope you enjoyed my little squirrel friends!

Until Next Time......

God Bless

Enjoying Mother Nature & Her Beauty.......

There is so much "Beauty" around us that God provides us to enjoy.....
we just have to take the time to "look" around.......

As I was driving up my driveway coming home from work.......
These beautiful little flowers caught my eye.....
they were growing right in the middle of all the green at the edge of our woods.....
In the 14 yrs we have lived on this property, I do not remember seeing these little flowers until today....or maybe it's because they were all in this one little other flowers around but just the same I think they are splendid!
Cute as a button!
I have had other wildflowers come back year after year but it was the first time I ever noticed these little jewels.....they are more than welcome to come back next year.
Looking out my kitchen window.....I had a visitor.....a pretty  female cardinal.

Don't forget to feed & water our sweet feathered friends!

 God Bless

Fresh Scent......

Don't you just love driving by  "Fresh" plowed ground.......aah...the aroma....I love smelling dirt after it has been tilled!

 Driving to work I see fields that have been plowed and I get excited thinking about how in a few weeks I will see small growth of whatever the farmer has planted. I can not imagine how long this took when farmers only had mules & ox instead of the tractors we have today.

Our Tulip Poplar trees have been in bloom......the aroma of these blooms are so sweetly scented. I try to get out and enjoy this wonderful fragrance as much as possible, they only last a couple of weeks.

Then there is the Honeysuckle...what a sweet fragrance. The other day while our youngest grandson (4yrs) & I went for a walk I showed him how to get the juice from the Honeysuckle...he thought this was pretty cool!

What kind of Fresh Scents have you enjoyed lately around your part of God's Country?
