Pride In My Family Puts A Smile On My Face

April 17, 2012

Ah, what a beautiful day here in my little part of the world.  I'm getting a late start enjoying it because we slept late this morning.  Oh boy, did that ever feel good!  God bless Tootsie.  We had gotten up a few hours earlier to do her eye drop, and then we crawled back into bed.  She let me sleep until 9:45. 

There are so many things I would like to do today, but I will have to pick one or two because tonight is a work night and we have to be back home by 4 p.m.  Maybe I'll just make us some lunch and then Tootsie and I will head to the park.  I keep going by there in hopes of seeing new babies.  Bird babies.

I got good news last night.  My grandson Koolaid brought in the winning run for his Jr. Varsity baseball team yesterday.  Way to go, Kevin!  Cheerleading is about finished till next season so Jasmine has joined the Drama Club, and got herself a part in the upcoming production.  Can you hear "Proud" in my voice?

I have a cute photo of a White Throated Sparrow that I took yesterday at work.  I had to look this little fellow up in my bird book because the Mrs wanted to know what type of sparrow he was.  Isn't he just the cutest little bird?

After supper, Tootsie and I went outside to get some excercise and check on our flowers.   She looks good in orange, doesn't she?  Actually, I think she looks great in everything.

Once we came back in the house, I noticed the shadows on the house changing (through my window) so I grabbed the camera and went back outside.  The sun was setting and this was the view from my front yard of the sky across the street.  Rather pretty, I think.

Now it's time to get dressed, make some lunch, and get outdoors.  Till tomorrow, I hope the weather is nice for you, and Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Family pride is an awesome thing! I was just writing a graduation page for my nieces and so all that pride is on the surface, along with a few mushy tears while I was writing.

The white throated sparrow is beautiful! I love his stripes! I love the orange stripes on Tootsie too. She just looks so much her Mama’s girl in orange!

Sorry I didn’t make it by yesterday, but thank you for the current part of April Showers. I have SU’s new blog on my reader and I’ll be stopping to visit her soon. :)

Have fabulous day basking in that glow Kevin and Jasmine made!

Hugs, Nani

You should be proud and they benefit from your pride in them. Tootsie could wear a burlap sack and look good. Love the sky photo, you really capture some nice moments.
