Snapshots of my world this week:
Top left, clockwise
Avry, my sweetheart, loves boiled shrimp. I watched him eat two bowls full. Yuck, pooey, but he loved it.
Kudos to On the Border- last Friday, all employees wore these red shirts: Remember Our Deployed- love it. So rare to see these days, I had to take a photo.
Another abandoned car at the park, nature taking over.
An egret plopping around for fish in the pond- making quite the splash in the 10 degree weather!
My dad and my oldest granddaughter (Happy Birthday Pops!)
The ceiling fan decided to fall. I wasn't in the room, but my husband was sitting in his chair a few feet away. Four tiny nail gun nails were all that was holding the fan to the ceiling. It held 21 years, so I guess we can't complain, but this is the table all my grands sit around when we have a dinner. Thank God they weren't here.
Dakota and Little Man buried up in the hay. It's cold and they stayed at the buffet forever.
Last but not least is the main reason I cannot have bird feeders. The lovely, but oh such stinking stinkers: the starlings. They will attack my feeder with a vengence and down a bag of feed in an hour. These are the same birds that layed (laid?) eggs in my bluebird box and left for vacation...leaving the blue birds to deal with their babies.
Haley's goat Daisy had her baby the other night, and I posted a photo on my instagram, which I immediately took down because the baby died. Four days later she gave birth to a mummy twin. Stranger things I have never heard of. Haley has another goat mama ready to give birth the end of this month- Minnie. I'm hoping all goes well for this one.
