Hey, You....what's going on

Hello again my friends. Just wanted to post a little update on what I have been doing since we spoke last.

For starters, I have been reading the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy. Oh my goodness, those books are steamy and the story line is such a roller coaster...I haven't been able to put it down! I am currently on book 3. I would highly recommend these books to anyone who wants a good story line and doesn't mind the steamy sex scenes.

Secondly, I have been playing around with my new Nikon point and shoot. I keep it in my purse in my Michigan Wolverines (GO BLUE!!!) pouch! I have to say, it has been a little hard for me to transition from my D40 to my point n shoot. I am used to faster shutter speeds from the D40. But here are a few pics I have captured.

First is an onion flower from my garden. I just love these beautiful flower clusters. They look like perfectly round snowballs!!!! And guess what they smell like.....They smell like onions. Who would've thought :)

Here I have a pic of my Kentucky wonder pole beans climbing high up the trellis. I have really enjoyed watching these beans wrap themselves around and around. It truly amazes me.

Next is a simple dandelion flower.

The flag pole at the school. Look at that brilliant blue sky!!

I dunno if you can see but right in the middle is a yellow spot. I have 2 baby squash growing. I am so proud.

 As I stated I am still trying to get accustomed to the new point and shoot but I think I am getting the hang of it!

I also enjoyed a special treat from my garden this week.
My first batch EVER of home grown sweet peas.
Here you can see the pods I picked filling a blue Easter bucket.

Big beautiful plump peas.

And here is the mess of peas after they were shelled. 
 Let me tell you, these peas were the best I have ever tasted! I usually eat frozen veggies unless I can find fresh seasonal and oh my these were a delicious treat!

My kiddos have been having fun as well. Last night they closed the curtain panels in the bay window and were reading by flash light. It was so funny watching 3 of the four in this little "hide out"

Here you can see the light of their flashlight. I swear they stayed in there for a couple hours playing and reading.

Today we had some errands to run in Chillicothe. We went to Menards and to Hobby Lobby and we took the kiddos to pet land to see the animals. I didn't get to take a picture of it but they got to play with a very cute old English Bulldog.

Here are some pictures I took while at Petland.

Oh I almost forgot...we also stopped by Sally Beauty supply. My daughter has been wanting hair feathers and I didn't want to pay the outrageous prices for her to get them at the salon so I went to Sally's and spent $7 on a pack of 4.
My daughter gave me the white one.

My daughter got the bright pink and bright green ones.

Here is another pic from the front.

My oldest got one that is light brown. It blends really well with her hair.

Here is my beautiful oldest daughter from the front.

Well that is all for my update. I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I am off now to delve back into book 3 of the 50 Shades trilogy.

  1. Nothing like a homegrown veggie, you can't beat the taste.
    Your new camera is taking great snapshots.
