Show and Tail Tuesday

It's time for Show and Tail Tuesday over at Angela's place West Virgina Treasures stop by and check her out.
This evening I walked into the living room and saw ChiChi setting with the pillow of her dog bed over her and she was just working away trying to cover herself up with it. She'd scratch at the pillow like she would a pile of dirt. I kept watching her and grabbed my camera. I wanted to see what she was doing. When she saw me she stopped and tried to look like she wasn't doing anything...
 Don't you just love that deer in the head light look?

What? I'm not doing anything...

See nothing on this side either....

You see it? She had a bone she was trying to "bury" in her bed..silly Dog, she has scratched her bed for 15 mins...and still hasn't dug a hole to bury it yet. 
"See it's gone, can't see it can you?" soon as I turned my back and put the camera down she hid the bone under my couch. HD was so mean to her, he got it and throw it to Levi...poor sweetie, her bone was gone. But that was for the best, she doesn't have enough teeth left to chew it... any ways she stole it from Levi to start with. When I let her out to use the bath room, she slipped it in the house with her.
Guess she learned crime doesn't pay. I went and got her a soft treat but she wasn't speaking to me.
Hope you have a great Tuesday..mine will be a little can pout worse than a child..

Blue Monday

Good morning, it's time again for Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's, go by and check out all the other pretty blues by clicking here
This week end, I have been feeling a little blue, I know I'm being silly but I watched my boys grow up so fast or it seemed to me to be so fast and even though I miss the little boys they used to be, I am so proud of the Young men they have become..
But now it seems my Grands are growing up at an alarming speed, it seems like just yesterday they were little and now I can't believe how big they have Keiferman is a grown man working full time and going to school, planning a wedding in 2, were has the time gone, Connor is now 13, Rissa 1o going on 20 and MooMoo is 9 going on full grown.
I made some before and after shots and since they are wearing blues, and because it makes me so BLUE to see how fast they are growing
I decided to post them on Blue Monday...
When they were all around 2 yrs old...
These were all taken this Christmas..
Hope you all have a wonderful week...enjoy every minute of your time with your kids and grands...

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I'm joining in on Scavenger Hunt Sunday over at Ramblings and Photos again this week..the prompts this week are..
1. Texture (current Mortal Muses' prompt)
2. Fog (Exploring with a Camera prompt - linky open starting February 2nd.)
3. Button (PieniLintu's suggestion)
4. Beverage or Drink (PieniLintu's suggestion)
5. Seventies (PieniLintu's suggestion - could be interpreted as vintage 70's image/product, a person in their 70's or 70's processing
For my texture I used a picture that I took last summer of King's Tavern in Natchez, MS and added a crinkle paper texture to make it look like a crumbled up old photo...I like the look I got...Legend has it that this old Road house, built in the mid 1700's, is haunted, I had to smile when I saw the small orb floating at the top of this picture... wonder who was watching me...:-)

I snapped this picture outside my bedroom window over looking the pasture early one morning last week, it is not unusual for us to have fog around here the way the weather changes from cold to hot, hot to cold..I thought it looked a little eerie...

I keep this jar of old buttons in my paint/sewing room on a shelf  just in case I need a button for anything...

My drink of choice is the diet green tea, I just love it...

I really thought about this and just kept coming up blank until my Grandson asked me how old ChiChi was, I told him 11 yrs old and he said "boy she's old, in dog years she is 77". Bingo..I knew what I was going to use. My Baby is getting on up in age. She is getting slower and sleeps longer everyday. Her hips and back were broken so bad when she was hit by the car 10 yrs ago that she can't get out of her bed in the mornings during the cooler weather and loves laying in front of her own private heater.
I hope you enjoy my interpertation of these prompts....

Marco Flower Saturady

Macro Flowers Saturday badge 1

Join Macro Flower Saturday and share with us your beautiful flowers!
How do you know Spring is just around the corner...?
You see these sweet little blooms sticking their heads up through the leaves, reaching for the sun.

It was such a beautiful day yesterday that I decided to walk around my yard and was rewarded with alot of new growth winding their way up ward...
This bunch of Jonquils have been coming up in my back yard for over 40 yrs. I did not set them out. We believe there was an old house place where our home is now or close by years ago and these were planted then. I look forward to seeing them every Spring...
I also captured this little bird setting on the handles of our 4 wheeler..I imagine him saying "hey lets go for a Ride...
Hope you have a wonderful week-end

Simple Pleasures

Project Simple Pleasures2

I am joining Simple Pleasures over at a Collection of this and that..please join us by clicking on the button above..
My simple pleasure this week is a very simple but up lifting experience and a joy to me. My Baby (youngest) Granddaughter
recieved and Iphone for Christmas..I know she is only 9, but Santa deemed her old enough..
Anyhow, she is only allowed to use it when her mother oks it and she is not allowed to take it to school. She has so many minutes to text and when they are gone each month she can't use it till next month. So can you imagine the love I felt when I was told she wanted to use her minutes to text me instead of her friends..
I recieve this message every night. Sweet simple and to the point..what a sweet simple pleasure this is to look forward to every night.
I hope all of your Simple Pleasures bring you the joy this sweet simple pleasure brings me.

I am blessed...

This year for Christmas my 3 sons decided it was time for their Mom and Dad to come into the 21st, I loved my old TV but they decided we needed a bigger one and a new surround sound and HD DVD  Direct TV reciever, so for Christmas they went together and bought us a Sony 46" flat screen and Sony Blue Ray sourround sound system, I must admit I love it and really enjoy watching DVDs. Our old surround sound system was ok, but the DVD player no longer worked.
This is what my wall and TV looked like before Sat when they all gathered at my house to up date us. Must admit it is kinda cluttered.

the after look, this spring we plan to have new flooring put down, I think the hardwood floors will look great. Also the border around the top of the room has to go and I hope to repaint the room a different color..DH thinks white or tan are the only colors on the color wheel...
They wanted me to get rid of the cabinet, but that ain't happening, DH built this for me 35 yrs ago and I just love it. The DVD surround sound is inside the top door.
The tv in the first picture was a Christmas present from Baby Boy last year and it was suppose to be put in the bedroom, but the one in the living room bite the dust so we used it in there. It will now be used as a computer screen for DH.

My sweet Grandson came to visit this week, after a little while we missed him, this is where I found memories of when his Dad was a boy and slept in this bed room.

For the last couple of nights the moon has been just beautiful, I can't seem to get a good picture of it, but...I love the way the tree limbs are silhouetted in the moon light
This is an old door to a store that is being remodeled in McComb, MS, I don't know why I was drawn to it, but the phrase that came to mind was "DOOR TO THE PAST"
This shot was taken the week before Christmas but the reflections are just perfect, the Lake almost looks like glass...
The Silver Belles of Clear Branch Baptist Church...4 0f these lovely ladies are 76 and older..the lady in the middle in black is the baby, she is 66. The lady 2d from the right just celebrated her 90th birthday. The lady 2d from the left is 76, just finished painting the outside of her house, a beautiful old farm house, by herself, up on a ladder and, she is my hero. The lady next to her on the right is a newly wed of 1 yr. I am honored to be a part of this group of amazing ladies. I just hope when I reach their age I still have their get up and go.
Well this is my interputation of this weeks words..what are yours, I'd love to see them.

God's beautiful creatures,

It was extremely cold today and even though I am 100% improved, I still didn't want to get out and run the risk of getting sick again so I just did a little bird watching from my front are a few shots I really liked...This first little guy landed on the water bowl and was drinking when he suddenly turned and just stared at he was saying.............

I enjoyed watching these guys argue like a bunch of kids over who was going to have the best seat in the house...They are such fat little fellers, I can tell they love my bird your day is filled with the joy of watching God's Creatures enjoying his bounty.

Simple Pleasures Thursday

I'm joining Simple pleasures again over at A Collection of this and that...Click here to join or check us out.

To me simple pleasures are capturing images on my camera, images of a time gone by or a time slowing fading away. As I travel south on I-55  From Brookhaven to McComb I always pass this old abandoned home, it has been there for as long as I can remember, it sets very close to the interstate and has a fence around it to keep folks from the highway from tresspassing. I have long been attracted to the way they repaired it as it slowly started decaying, notice the big metal advertising signs...I know that at one time it had to be someone's home, a time before the interstate came through and pushed it's family out. Notice the curtains still in the windows.
Tues when I went to the Dr I finally pulled over ( not a smart thing to do on the interstate ) and took a few pictures. It was such a dreary day and everything was so drab that in the last picture I was surprised to see the red berries making the picture all pretty and bright...

Hope all your little pleasures are simple ones..
