This, for one:
That, my friends, is grass. Fine as a gnat's you-know-what hair, but grass nonetheless. Here's a wider shot:
That's looking straight back off my back deck. And here's the shot to the right:
The dogwoods in our woods bloomed overnight. Our woods are greening and it's making me nearly delirious.
Also making me happy today? A nearly four foot long black snake sunning himself by our back deck. He nearly gave Mr. Daddy a heart attack at first, but we're all pretty cool about snakes around here, especially the non-venomous, vermin eating kind. We brought everybody outside to see him, but in all the excitement I forgot to grab the camera. The excitement was too much for him and he slithered, slowly, off into the woods.
The Boston Red Sox are playing the Yankees tonight. They're 1-1 this season. Last night's game was gooood, if long.
And finally, some blog bling. Karen over at The Rocking Pony gave me this award weeks ago, but I've been so blogligent (do you like that word? I just made it up!) that I have not gotten around to acknowledging it.
I'm passing this one on to Burgh Baby's Mom, Tootsie over at Vintage Thirty and Stay At Home Mom Going Quickly Insane.
I also received this, a very fitting award, from Tootsie at Vintage Thirty (see above link!):
I swear, sometimes I think Tootsie really knows me! As a child I absolutely coveted a tiara that was for sale in a local store. I saved and saved and saved my allowance as a child and finally bought it. Who needs pageants? Buy your own tiara!
Anyhoo, I bestow this award to Angie over at All Adither, Fannie at This Isn't What I Ordered, and Colleen over at Wine Please. Everybody needs some sparkle in their lives. Enjoy, ladies!
Have a great week, everybody! I plan to!
