A Comment about the post under this one.....

As a nod to Adam's Dad:

Looking at the pictures - and the angles portraying half of our front yard.....

We suffer from "MONO-CULTURE"!

We really have ZERO landscaping. (Seriously.... do you think I have time to do landscaping? I have paper in my studio that doesn't have ink on it yet! Priorities people.... priorities!)

Anyway.... Makes me laugh!

Peace & Blessings!

Sun & Rain, but no rainbow....

We had a wicked storm come through. The sun was shining, it was torrential downpour, but I couldn't find the rainbow....

Peace & Blessings!

Happy Father's Day

I was going to bake for Dad this year - but then thought getting a package from Fed Ex with melted chocolate bits - well, not such a good idea.

Happy Father's Day DAD!

Thanks for teaching me how to change the oil in my car (even if I've only done it once)
Thanks for teaching me about the gadgets with motors I now own, and how I need to maintain them (or request the maintenance from others within the household)
Thanks for your hilarious sense of humor (your dry wit rubbed off)
Thanks for asking more than telling.

Love you!

Peace & Blessings!

My husband and I purchased our first home in June of 2001. We were there a week, when I was doing dishes, and looking out the window to the back yard at the pool. Before we moved in, I told him I wanted to get a pet frog.

Anyways, so I'm doing the dishes, and literally marveling at the fact that my first house has a pool (as a kid, ALL I WANTED was a pool!). We hadn't opened it yet with the move in and everything, so the winter cover was still on with about 6" of water from snow melt and rain.

I saw movement on top of the cover. So, I went down to the pool and there were THOUSANDS of tadpoles swimming on the cover of the pool! Before we opened the pool I scooped each and every one out, put into aquariums, and gave them to schools, kids, set them free, and so on.

We have since moved to New York, and in 2005 we purchased another home - this time with a pool AND a jacuzzi. Our house is close to a wildlife preserve, and we have woods, and marsh all around us. So, in the spring, it’s INVASION of the frogs. (I LOVE frogs!)

This year, we have been slacking on getting the pool open (Seriously, upstate New York – it’s NOT warm enough yet!). On Sunday Adam pointed out to me…. Can you guess…. That there are TADPOLES on top of the winter pool cover.

I, of course, immediately said “we can’t kill them”. So we are going to drain the cover into a bucket this weekend, and set them free in the marsh way out back in the woods.


Peace & Blessings!
