Off to the grocery store & enjoy the rest of the day ~ Hope you are all having a wonderful Weekend!!!

  1. Thanks for posting that video...I might have never seen it - and it was totally worth watching. :) And speaking of little things - you all should see the River right now, it is totally awesome - they pulled a 60 lb catfish off of someone's trot line over the weekend!!!!

  2. We've had so much upheaval since the latter part of last year, that we've had to reevaluate our need for things, both metaphorically and literally...things.
    Small changes for the better, a beautiful Spring, waterfalls, spear points found, peony buds(hopefully not killed by the 2 day freeze we're having), my first blue egg from my new chickens...better things I think.
    Have a great week.

  3. Ya'll keep me smiling, for sure :) A 60 lb catfish!!! And I was proud of my crawfish I found up at the waterfall. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for my peonies, too Jen. Hopefully it won't get all the way down to freezing here, but right now it's snowing, so who knows ~ ♥

  4. That video is so cute and funny! It made me laugh out loud. Good way to start the morning :O)


Thanks for your comments ~ ♥
