Just a quick farewell

My dear friends, I have been contemplating this decision for awhile and it is with heavy heart that I write. For sometime now my heart just hasn't been in my blog. There is so much going on in my life that I have to struggle to make a post daily or even every other day, sometimes I have to struggle just to get out of bed and keep going. It not fair to you my fellow bloggers that I can't make it around to read your post.
DH has had some major health issues lately and if he is to get well the Dr says he must make some major life style changes (food) that man loves to eat.. I feel my time needs to be spent with him and making sure he is taken care of.
I love you all and will try to stop by and visit as often as I can.
I will continue to post on my 365 project blog for all I have to do is post a picture a day. Please drop by to check out my picture of the day and leave a comment if you like.
Love you all and may God be with you...

Simple Pleasure Thursday

Project Simple Pleasures2

I'm joining Simple pleasures again over at A Collection of this and that...Click on picture above to join or check us out.
Tuesday my Sister and I went to the Spring Pilgrimage in Natchez..Natchez is located on the Mississippi River and was first settled by the French in 1700's. You can learn more about this beautiful old town by clicking here
We were able to tour 2 beautiful homes..... The Elgin ca. 1792, and the Green Leaves ca.1832. The slide show is of pictures I made at Elgin, the home's owner, Mrs. William Calhoun the lady standing on the front porch, graciously allowed me to take pictures inside and out. I was not allowed to take pictures inside the Green Leaves but did get some out side the home, they are not in this video..I will be showing them on a later post.
I am so happy that so many of the older families kept their homes and have allowed us to walk back in time. Elgin was so beautiful, it is surround by 25 acres of informal gradens covered in blooming Azelias, camilias, wistera and many other scrubs that were in bloom, the air was filled with heavenly smells, the wind was blowing, the birds were singing and there was no traffic sounds at all. It was like stepping back in time. Hope you enjoy.
I know I did, It made me proud that I was born and raised in Dixie.
And that is my Simple Pleasure for today, the simple pleasure of being able to relive the days of the Beautiful simple life.....

Tuesday Show and Tail..learning to milk...

It's time for Show and Tail Tuesday over at Angela's place West Virgina Treasures stop by and check out her wonderful Meme about animals...
And guess what I'm not going to talk about my silly little dog today..I let her have a week to didn't chase her with my camera.
Last Fri Baby Girl and I went to a friends horse ranch, and BG got to ride horses, and also got to learn to milk, she was so excited...Donna the lady who owns the Ranch Graduated with my oldest son and has always loved horse and said that one day she'd own her own place and she sure did...she is very patient and kind to little ones, and teaches them what to do and why.
After they rode awhile, (I was following on the 4 wheeler) she asked BG if she would like to milk a cow, oh my Lord, did she say yes so fast Donna had to we headed to 1 of the 4 barns on the place..
and this is what greeted us, aren't they the cutest things. The cute little girl is Donna's Granddaughter she's 3 and has been riding since she was 1 yr old..
 Donna's DIL showed BG how to milk..
 Then BG tried on here own.
 They even let her taste the milk, didn't like it, said she preferred store bought
The silly dog waited his turn for the milk to be squirted into his mouth...

 If you look close you'll see a stream of milk and Donna's GD caught it in her was such a little growny thing.
one of the other dogs, she had 6, waiting patiently for us to start the ride again...
Uh-Oh the I stepped in crap look..oh well, things like that happen on a City girl didn't like it...
 She was wanting to take it home... 
Then they all said good-bye to the cows and moved was hard for little bit to climb up on the horse, her legs was just a little to short, but she was determined to do it alone.
Well that's about it for tonight, I would love to return to the Ranch one day soon and take MoMo as she also loves horses. She was in Fl this past week for Spring Break and didn't get to go with us.
Hope you have a great week, I will be headed to the Natchez Pilgramage tomorrow with my Sis, hope I can take some good pictures to show you.

Blue Monday & Marco Monday

It's Monday again folks can you believe it, this past week has just flown by and has been sure a busy one for me, Monday was my grocery shopping day and it usually takes me several hours as I have started couponing and have several places to go. Then Monday evening Middle Boy brought Rissa down to spend the week for Spring break. Tuesday She and I went shopping and then did a little junkin'. Wednesday she and I had a photo shot at different spots in Down Town Brookhaven,
Even though I took well over 100 pictures I won't bore you, but with my 2 favorite ones.. 
This was my favorite of all the shots I took, She looks so much older than she really is, but then she has always acted older than she is.
Later that evening, I met a friend of mine who had asked me to take pictures of her 2 children, here are a few of the ones I did for her that I like, it was Lane her son's 13 th Birthday...
We spend all evening in town and I was exhausted. Thurs morning around 6 o'clock my DH woke me up and asked me to take him to the emergency room, his head was busting and his blood pressure went sky high, they worked for 5 hrs trying to get it stabilized and finally around 1 o'clock we left with another new blood pressure pill and instructions to go see our Dr who in turn made him an appointment in Jackson with a Specialist. When the Hospital ran his CT scan they found something they didn't like. He has been resting and is doing good, he also decided it was time for him to take their advice and cut back on his food intake. Next week will be spent in DR offices..sigh..BUT, If all goes well I will go to the Natchez Pilgrimage Tues. in between Dr visits.
Fri. I took Rissa to a friend's Horse Ranch to ride for a little while, NO, I didn't ride horses but I did follow them on the 4 wheeler and we had 3 hrs of a beautiful fun filled but tiring day...

She had so much fun riding, but more about that in another post. Last night was the night of the supermoon, so I was headed out side to take a picture when I noticed something on the door..awww, isn't he cute?
 and yes I did get a shot of the was just beautiful...
I am going to join Blue Monday and Marco Monday..Hope you noticed the blue door and the blue sky and jeans in the riding Marco picture is the frog and the moon. I think I got kinda up close and personal with them both.
I hope you all have a Blessed week and if you would please mention my Hubby when you talk to the Good Lord tonight.

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 her wonderful Meme about animals...
I guess you are going to say "not that silly little dog again, but I can't help it she's so funny at times. DH calls her the Ice Princess, cause she just thinks she's too good to have her picture made and just doesn't want you bothering her when she is stretched out in her special sun week I found her laying on the rug against her momma's shoes, with her Buddy laying on the other side of the door soaking up the rays. When I got my camera ...well just look at her reaction..silly girl
She gave me her cold, get that camera out of my face look...
She has that "can't you see I'm trying to relax in the sun, here." look and gives me the evil eye..,
 OK enough is enough I'm headed to my bed, Please let me pass".

OK, that's fine I'll just follow you to your bed"..Say's I..."

Can't you leave me alone, I'm TRYING TO SLEEP
fine I'll just turn my back to you and the ICE PRINCESS drifts off to sleep, totally disrespecting her Momma.
Well now she has made me sleepy just chasing her around. I think I'm going to go lay down in the sun and take a nap.
Hope you all have a great Tuesday.

Blue Monday and Marco Monday..Spring in the South

Today I am combining 2 of my favorite meme's Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's and Marco Monday at Lisa's Chaos...

I know that part of our country is still having snow and cold weather, but it is so beautiful down here in the South right now and I am enjoying every minute of it. Yes we do have some beautiful weather, warm sunshine, slight breeze, air filled with the smell of so many different fragrences, from the fresh mowed grass to the Sweet olive trees, BUT it will turn summer before you know it. That is the curse of the deep south 3 week Springs, 3-4 week winters and the rest hot steamy Summers. Oh how I love the
Guess you are saying what does this have to do with Blue Monday or Marco Monday...I'd say everything..during our Spring the flowers really strut their stuff. And with out God's clear blue sky they wouldn't look as beautiful..hope you enjoy some of my flowers I snapped this week.
My Peach tree in full bloom
I love this shot from the bottom up see how beautiful the blue sky is as a back drop for all of these little beauties?
Even the Azelias are started to bloom out, now Dear friends, when that happens is when the beauty of the South really shines through, it is an amazing sight. I will try to post pictures of the area and I know Janie is wating for that also. Even the bubble bees celebrate.
Well I know y'all are getting tired of my flower and bird pictures and I wanted to let you know in the near future my Sis and I will again be traveling to the Natchez Pilgrimage (check it out) and I will be posting about it when we get back...
Hope you enjoyed just a few of my beautiful Spring marco shots. Just wanted to share some of the Marco beauty of the south.
