Precious Time With My Baby Boy

Everyone knows my son likes to drive everyday.
And I do believe we have driven everyday since he got his permit.  I don't mind going for drives with him because that's just more time I have with him.  And with my baby boy being 15 I know my time will be less and less.  He's so sweet.  He'll ask if I would like a latte or something.  Then I try to give him money and he tells me "he has it covered" and immediately tears fill my eyes.  The simpliest gestures tell me I've raised 
a good boy who will be a good man. 

I remembered my camera today and Kyle, my son, agreed that the sky should be photographed.

These photos are in order and all taken within 30 minutes.

Can you see Fed Ex on the plane?

Butterflies Make Me Smile

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect.
It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfection.
Love is like a

butterfly, it

goes where  

it pleases 

and it pleases

where it goes.

No one is in control of your happiness but you;
therefore, you have the power to change anything
about yourself or your life that you want to change.

My Encounter With The Sandhill Cranes

While hubby and I were out and about Saturday afternoon I spotted a family of Sandhill Cranes.  I asked hubby to drive over to them so I could take some pics.  I was about to get out of the car, but good thing I didn't because those beautiful birds had no fear!  They came right up to my window! 

P.S. CHATTY CRONE is having a 6 day giveaway!  Check it out!

It's illegal to feed Sandhill Cranes in Florida as of 2002.

Backyard Rescue

I was in my kitchen and I
heard a baby squirrel squealing.
Out my kitchen window
I could see a baby squirrel trying to climb the Oak Tree
but, he kept falling. I ran outside and scooped him up
before something not so nice did. It rained the rest
of the afternoon so, in the morning I'll take him outside to see if mama is
looking for him. If she's not, I will take him to the
wildlife rescue center.

A Visit with Family & Wiggle Worm

I went to visit my Grandma today.
I also saw my Uncle, Cousin and little Nicki.
Little Nicki is a wiggle worm!  My Cousin
held her so that I could take some pics.

She may look calm here, but she's a bundle of pure energy and sweetness!

Frogs, Flowers & Dragonflies...Oh My!

A few flowers & friends from my yard.

Drive, Drive, Drive...Everyday, Everyday, Everyday

My son driving us home from his birthday dinner.

Everyday since my son got his driving permit, end of June, we take drives.  He reminds me that we live in Orlando and he needs lots of practice and in less than a year he will be driving on his own.  I don't really want to be reminded of this!  And if there's anything worse than driving in Orlando at 5:00 p.m., it's being the passenger in the car that your 15 yr old is driving in Orlando at 5:00 p.m.! LOL!

Today's drive...Lk Underhill
