Tomatoes Anyone?

I've never been fond of tomatoes.  Hubby and I found this cherry tomato plant at Lowes on clearance for only $3!  Hubby takes good care of it, just as he does me. :)  And now, he has me eating tomatoes!  He diced them up and put them in my favorite cucumber, bacon and ranch salad and I loved them!  I'm feeling healthier already. :) LOL
How about you, do you like tomatoes??

Lake Memories

This is one of the lakes in our neighborhood.  No motor boats are allowed on it, so it's always very peaceful.  There are three homes and one street between us and the lake.  Whether we're coming or going there's the pretty lake.  My son learned to fish here, fed many ducks and birds, released baby turtles and eventually helped Mama Ducks with their babies get here safely.  We have walked our pups by this lake hundreds of times.  My all time favorite memories of this lake are definitely my son and I sitting together on one of the benches and talking about life.  

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!  Happy & safe Monday to you all!  

Morning of Mama Mallard and her babies walking to the lake.

Our favorite bench was closer to the lake, but they moved it a few years ago.

A Boy & His Dog

Our pups love Kyle and he adores them!  When he gets home our pups go out of their minds as if they haven't seen him in days.  
A little something about my son, he will not pass up an animal in need.  And if there is an elderly person struggling with anything he will jump right in to lend a helping hand.  These are some of his wonderful traits that I think about when he is having a teen moment. :) LOL!

Thank You

Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes!  Hubby and son made my cake and yes it was chocolate!  They used chocolate cool whip for the frosting and it was sooo good!  I had a wonderful day!

I've been very busy all week so, again I'm running a little behind on visiting blogs.  
I just hope that everyone is enjoying their spring!  Remember to take at least a few minutes out of your day and listen to the birds sing.  :)

Happy Birthday!

Today I'm 44 years young!  Woo Hoo!  I will be spending the day with my two favorite guys.  Later in the evening we will be with family and pigging out on pizza & hot wings!  Hopefully there will be a chocolate cake...yum!

Happy Birthday to Andy, Chatty Crone's GS!  
We share the same birthday!

Happy Friday to all my friends in blog land!  I'll catch up soon!  
Enjoy some more pics of Mama Mallard and her babies. :)

Good Mama.

Mom, you're embarrassing us! lol

I love this...

Seven Spring Ducklings

Mama Mallard's eggs started hatching Monday afternoon on April Fools Day.  But, she wasn't fooling us, it was the real deal!  And around 7 a.m. this Tuesday morning I had the pleasure of escorting Mama to the lake with her 7 precious ducklings.  I was really hoping they would hatch this Friday, on my birthday.  This was close enough. :)
This is our second year having Mama nest in our yard.  Last year she waddled her babies to the lake on Memorial Day.  
Needless to say my day started off great!
All these photos were taken as the sun was rising so, the lighting is a bit tricky.  
But, I think you can feel the sweetness. :)

She was doing a lot of talking!  A proud Mama for sure. :)
