We had a wonderful surprise yesterday

two children came to see us. Their home
is in Texas so it really was a surprise. Eric's
wife was not feeling to well so she stayed at
my daughters home in Pelham, Alabama when
Eric and the children came to see us. We had
a wonderful visit and got to enjoy our great
grandchildren . Eric even got to see his Aunt
Deann and her family who came over after I
call and told them they were here. Thank you
Eric for making the trip out here and for your

Here is a photo of our two great grandchildren
playing with grandpa and my straw hats.
Cute don't you think. Ethan will be four the end

A couple days ago while sitting out on the swing
enjoying the nice weather I noticed a little
chipmunk in one of the birdhouses my husband
built. He was playing on the porch and going in
and out of the hole. I had my husband go get
the camera and this is the picture he took. You
can just verily see the chipmunks head poking
out of the hole. Click on the picture and you may
be able to see him.

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
But today is a gift
That 's why they call it the present.
Time is too slow for those who wait
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice.
But for those who love,
time is eternity.

Knockout roses we planted last year.
Another azalea bush.

My one plot of iris that did very well this year.

Pansies in the container by husband built.
Even though I did miss a lot of the actual
blooming I am so glad my sweet husband
took pictures for me.

I missed my azaleas this year because of being
in the hospital. My husband took pictures of
them and said they were the pettiest he had seen.
