When I went to my daughter Liz's on Thursday, I took some pictures around her area. This is a beautiful wheat field across the road. What a beautiful sky.
Here are the redbud and dogwood trees along the driveway.
In the backyard, there's a drop off hillside. You can see the creek that flows through the bottom part of Liz, Matt, and Emma's property. Emma has found a mushroom here.Oh that just makes me laugh. Papaw made them all a mushroom stick . When Emma found that mushroom she flew in the house to get her mushroom stick that is propped by the fireplace. She keeps it inside because papaw put a little yellow lab dog on the end.
In the area between these woods is where Liz watches deer. She says she has also seen coyotes.
Here is Emma's swing set. Papaw put this up for her when Liz was fighting cancer. Emma just about wore it out that year. This little fort on top , she called her playhouse. She doesn't play on it much any more being 11 years old now. But they will keep it for Layla Rose to play on when she comes over.
Here's my good news. My sister Barb, the one who had a mini stroke, will be going into a regular room on Monday. That is a good sign. Although I have no more news on her stroke, what kind, where the blood came from, I feel that God is answering our prayers. Thanks to all of you wonderful bloggers and friends for your prayers and kind words.
Wishing all moms a happy mother's day, tomorrow. XO
Ahhhh...Love the images! So peaceful. Glad to hear Barb is improving. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Lynne. This week seems to have turned around and I feel like God is truly answering our prayers. Wishing you a happy mother's day. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, What wonderful views, I love Dogwood and Redbud trees. Happy Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
Thank you Noreen. I had a wee dogwood, it lasted one year. I need to try to grow one again. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
So thankful that your sister is improving. I continue to pray.ReplyDelete
What a lovely yard....that is so cute about Emma's mushroom stick! Nice that the new baby can later enjoy this nice swing set/fort. I wish you a very nice Mother's Day. xo
Thank you Mildred. Yes, papaw is going to love that mushroom story...he's on his fishing trip. He will return tomorrow. I have been loving reading some blogs about mothers. Tomorrow will be a good day to. My sister is doing well, I am so grateful to God. xoxo,SusieDelete
It's wonderful news to know that your sister is recovering, continued well-wishes to her.ReplyDelete
The Dogwood and Redbud trees are so pretty this time of the year, the land surrounding your daughter's property is simply stunning.
Wishing you a beautiful Mother's Day dear sweet friend.
Thank you so much Jo. I am hoping to visit with my sister once she is not in ICU. I pray it goes well for her. Have a great day tomorrow. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Liz lives in such a gorgeous area Susie. Ahhh, that large field of wheat would be wonderful to look out on everyday.ReplyDelete
I wasn't aware of your sister's stroke, but hope and pray she keeps improving.
I love seeing you and your twins together for a day. The photo is darling!
Thank you June. One year that field was turnips...some farmers plant turnips to enrich the soils, they just plow the turnips under. I am thrilled my sister will be out of ICU this coming week. I truly love time with my daughters. Blessed Mother's Day to you June. xoxo, SusieDelete
Great news on your sister Susie. So happy for all of you to get some good news. Happy Mother's Day. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
Kris, I was so happy to hear my sister was moving from ICU. We can visit her now. Hope you have a happy mother's day. xoxo,SusieDelete
I love the wide open country-how beautiful these pictures are. I guess wild animals are part of the deal. Heck, I live in the city and I have a litter of racoons under my shed!ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day!
We do see deer and coyotes here. I hope that as wild as it gets. LOL. Happy Mother's Day Blondie. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Suzie, such gorgeous photos! Love the Dogwood and redbud! Glad your sister is improving! Wanted to hop over and wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day to you also Jann. I hope your day is filled with love. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, so nice to meet you and thank you for your visit and sweet comment to my blog. I am now a new follower of you. Michigan is my home state where I was born and raised in Dearborn. Donna also from your area, is a dear friend. I know live in Texas but most of our family is still in Michigan.ReplyDelete
Loved your pics and the gorgeous trees in bloom. Glad your sister is improving.
Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day and week ahead.
Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie
Celeste, Thank you so much following. My daughter Kathy, lives three miles south of the Michigan state line here in Inidiana. She loves going into Mi. and antique shopping. I have a couple really wonderful blog friends in Texas also. Linda of Linda Life Journal and BJ at Sweet Nothings....truly beautiful ladies. Wishing you a happy mother's day filled with love, xoxo,SusieDelete
Though we have our share of wooded area around here there ain't no wheat fields. Very nice to see those shots.ReplyDelete
Excellent news concerning your sister.
I had an interesting Sunday morning that may crop up in my next blog.
I wish the farmers would grow wheat here instead of so much corn . Corn blocks my views. LOL. Boston Boy, hope you are thinking of your vacation...can you even believe how close it is? xoxo,SusieDelete
That is good news about your sister, Barb, Susie. I will say a prayer for her. Liz' area is so lovely and peaceful, and I just love that play set. Jess had one when she was a little girl, but it wasn't as nice as this one. How wonderful that they will keep it through the years.ReplyDelete
I bet it is a sight when Liz sees those deers. I used to see them often at the park before we moved to our new house. That's why I called it the "deer park." They are such precious animals.
Sheri, My girls wore the little swing set they had to pieces. They looked more like monkeys than little girls, the way they climbed that thing. The scary time for deer and drivers around here is in the fall, when the harvest is being brought in.That gets the deer running. Hope you still get to see things in the wild. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
