Rainy Day Window Pics

It's been thunder storming on and off for the last three days here which I kind of love. I love me some good thunder and rain to sleep to. Although, if it keeps up, we might need to get a boat for the back yard. 

Fortunately, we haven't had to go that far yet, but we have had to get some gutter extensions which our home inspector suggested when we got the house so the water would drain away from the house instead of pooling up under it. 

I took these pictures yesterday when it was pouring and my hubs was talking to me about where he put the extensions. The light was perfect in front of the window where he was talking so naturally, after I assured him I was listening, I ran to get my camera to snap a few pics. That's totally normal, right? 

I'm so thankful for a husband who puts up with my antics, takes care of our house, and somehow always makes me laugh. I think I'll keep him ;)

p.s. I couldn't decide between color and black and white, so why not upload both, right?

Birds & Blooms in Our Backyard

Last weekend, Kendall went on a camping trip with a friend, and I spent a lot of time in our backyard, some of it working and some of it just sitting and thinking and snapping pictures.

It's fun to see some of the plants and flowers that the previous people who lived here planted making their way up from the ground and blooming.

The picture of the bird catching a mosquito in midair? I wish I could say I snapped that on purpose. So cool, right? And pure luck. It's at the bottom of the post so you've got to scroll through the rest of the birds and blooms too see it. ;) Hope you all have a great weekend! It's Kendall's birthday this weekend so I I've got a couple of little things planned!
