About Me

I am a Mom, Wife and Daughter. Say road trip and I am all ready in the car. I do love to stay home too. I am either reading, sewing, crocheting, doing something with paper or taking care of my family at any given moment.

Just Passing Through....

This turtle was very unhappy that Gaela and I brought Cadillac out for a look see.....
                 All Cadillac did was sniff the shell and then eat grass.....

                   Getting ready to make a run for it....
                  Who knew turtles could move this fast?
                    Sure wish he would stick around!

Our Yard Wednesday....Green Is God's Neutral.

Back yard....Pat has been working very hard to make this our outdoor summer room and Mother Nature has been very helpful in busting out the greenery this year.
 The Side of the garage.....
 The front of the house....
 The back yard again.....
This is the "circle" in front of the house.....There are four houses that take care of it. The other three houses mow the weedy grass and Pat transplants our irises and other plants in the center.

Baby Raccoons

These two cuties are staying out of the rain and catching a nap........It was so hard not to scoop them up and bring them home!

Memorial Day Parade 2013

 First Taps was played and then Veterans and Soldiers marched by......
 Then the Families of Service Men who are serving over seas walked by carrying pictures of their Service Members.....I couldn't even take a bad picture of the Soldier who marched alone in fatigues holding a folded flag.......And for the first time there wasn't a tram of  Pearl Harbor Survivors......
Our friends walked with their own greyhounds with the greyhound rescue group.

 It wouldn't be a parade in Metro Detroit without a few classic cars.....
Or a tractor.

How Old Is This Mirror?

Or is it an old frame with a new mirror? Would it be considered vintage? It weighs a ton and measures seventeen by twenty inches. 

Or is this

Our Mystery Tree

You may remember the tree Pat rescued from the wood chipper last Fall......

It seems quite happy in its new home this Spring!
Here is a reminder of what the poor thing looked like when it first came to live here.

I think the quince shrubs in front of our house are my favorite Spring flowers of all time!
