This week has been so full of generous surprises from some sweet blogging friends.
First one was a little parcel I got in the mail from Judy over at Memories are made of this! http://judypatooote.blogspot.com/
She had asked me if she could put Elvis' mug on one of her gift cards LOL
A look at this beautiful bookmark! I`m using it right now while reading Under The Tuscan Sun. Judy sells gift cards and bookmarks at http://www.judypatooote.etsy.com
Now if only this lovely descriptive book had pictures....sigh.
Jennie at Blog in a Cyber Bottle http://bloginacyberbottle.blogspot.com/ has elected me with this cool award! Thank you so much Jennie. What a fun one! Surely don`t deserve it though cause I`m so bad with blogging lately. Need to make more time on the computer.
And if that`s not enough, Kari over at Just Livin' Large http://grannyskywalker.blogspot.com/
has given me this one ! Thanks Kari. Thanks all of you guys and everyone that finds a few minutes to come and visit here :) Now if only I could find some nore time on the computer and visit everyone everyday! I`d be reading all day long, but I`d enjoy LOL
My Dad has a collection of bird houses in one of their trees....
A racoon was admiring them a few nights in a row. So much that he decided to pry the side off one and help himself to some yummy seeds.
My Dad strapped a cord around the tempting one and so far the theif hasn`t returned..
I was sitting outside reading and a hummingbird came to visit the beebalm. Of course when I went to grab the camera, he was gone. But Angus looked so pretty I just had to snap a couple of pictures...
A hungry visitor came to have a munch on a leaf of the garden phlox. these two are clickable to see his amazing detail...
Then a monarch butterfly came to check out the joe pie weed I dug up from the feild last year.
This one you can click to make bigger........
Well, that`s it for now. Have a great weekend!
