It's been a long week for us and it's only Friday. This is Wednesday evening's storm coming in from the southwest. Dark and windy with lightening. Thankfully it didn't last too long and no hail...that's good.
It was scary enough, that I sent pictures to my own weatherman, grandson Korey, in Utah. He advise that we be safe. :):)
One day this week we saw fields of golden rod....not good for people with allergies.
Checked on the baby birds again. All three are hatched. I better look at them again soon...you know they will be growing like mad. Always hungry, aren't they?
This was a milestone. Hahaha, Ted's GMC truck's odometer rolled over to three hundred thousand miles. His mechanic tells him he can get another hundred thousand out of it. Oh dear , I know he will try. This is the first time I have actually paid attention to that "apply brake to shift from park"...do you think people really read that?
Oh I just can't help myself ...You need to read Max's shirt...It says, promoted to big brother. LOL
And that seems to suit Luke just fine. He looks to be smiling about it all. Thanks for all the wonderful well wishes and compliments on my post of Luke's arrival to our family.
I am hoping we all have a great weekend. Thus far, we are predicted to have heavy rains and chances of bad storms. Be safe. XO
The boys are so cute. Look at both of them smiling! My Honda van has 230,000 miles, so that it good news that maybe it will last for a while longer!ReplyDelete
Karen, We always get our oil changes and rotate the tires...then there's been many other somewhat expensive things done to our vehicles too. All still nice than payments. LOL. I am loving our little boys. :):) Blessings, be safe this weekend. xoxo, SusieDelete
That was some storm, oh boy, you better stay safe, Susie! Max and Luke are such cuties!! xoReplyDelete
Debbie, I am loving our boys. I would love to have more time with them. I just hate too much rain, always worry about flooding. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
We have had the clouds and rain here this week, too, Susie. It was below freezing here this morning when I got up.ReplyDelete
That baby sure is cute and I love the promotion shirt. And the baby robins are pretty cute, too.
Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana
Diana, My grandson's wife snapchat me and it was snowing in Utah today. I worry about the amounts of rain expected this next few days. Praying it's not as bad as predicted. I think our weather is crazy and has been for the past few years. Blessings to you. xoxo, SusieDelete
Storms will be here for us tomorrow all day. I'm glad I don't have to water the yard. Love your photo of the little bird nest. So sweet. Even sweeter is Max with his tee shirt and the new kid on the block, Luke. The field of golden rod is so pretty.ReplyDelete
Gee, I always thought putting your foot on the brake while shifting was a given. Who knew there was an actual instruction. I am hoping for 200,000 miles on our Toyota, but 300,000 would be even better!
Nonnie, I am loving our little boys so much. I will have everyone in this weather's path in my prayers. I do not like the sound of what is coming. Yes, you will probably get another hundred thousand. Ted is hoping for many more miles. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Bless your heart! Dark weather doesn't suit your sunny personality! What a treat to see the baby birds! And that Max! And now Luke! So adorable!!ReplyDelete
I'm sitting in the sunshine as I write with the chirping birds and water fountain splashing as my background music. It's a good day to cut bouquets and set up for my party tomorrow however it promises to be a stormy day! I am your opposite! I love dark, wet weather! Yeah, I guess I'm a bit of a nut!
Hope you and Ted have a good weekend!
Love and prayers from Texas!
Linda, Soft gentle rains do not bother me...it's too many gray days and maybe too much rain for our sump pumps...I always worry about flooding. I love hearing birds sing and chirp. They are a joy. I also like to hear our water feature by the porch. :):) I am praying your family gathering is a fun time . Blessings to all , xoxo,love, SusieDelete
First of all, be safe this weekend. I'm a sucker for dark stormy skies. I think they are just beautiful. Speaking of beautiful, that's one handsome baby boy you have there. I love his name, too.ReplyDelete
Laurie, I do love to see storms brewing...just no big winds, hail or flooding rains please. LOL. Yes, I love Luke's name also. I had a wonderful uncle named Luke. Blessings, xoxo,,SusieDelete
300,000 miles! Wow that's very impressive. I have a 9 year old car and I haven't cracked 70,000 yet.ReplyDelete
After a week of crappy weather the nice weather is finally here.
Boston Boy, I bet those are work miles on your car. LOL. That's the miles I used to put on a car. Ted just trust this truck of his to last a life time. It's almost scary. We do get oil changes and tire rotating done all the time. Well you know every 3,000 miles. You are getting sweet days and we are in for some nasty heavy rain...that might cause flooding. Blessings to you and Arlene., Have a great weekend. xoxo, SusieDelete
Luke is a cutie..Scary skies..I just saw a TV thing that explained that fields of yellow are planted by farmers to enrich the soil..Not Golden rod..sure looks like it..ReplyDelete
Missy, I have seen farmers plant fields of turnips for the soil around here. So Maybe the yellow stuff is suppose be there . I am going to see the boy in a couple days. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Luke and Max are precious! Max's shirt is perfect. I hope you won't have real bad storms this weekend. Take care and God bless. xoxoReplyDelete
Mildred, We had lightening and very dark skies in the evening...but it was as scary as Wednesday's storm. Hoping this weekend doesn't get to bad. Stay safe there . I will be going to see the baby and Max in a couple days. Blessings, love, xoxo, SusieDelete
hi Susie, and happy weekend! I'm pretty sure your "goldenrod" is actually canola. It is a common crop here, used for seed oil. So, breath away! New little baby does look like he's smiling. We had some big rain here a couple of days ago, as well, with very foreboding clouds. -JennReplyDelete
Jenn, I have seen farmers around here plant turnips to enrich the soils...I am not sure what the yellow is, but will look around. It would be nice if it was not a weed. LOL. It is cold here today with the gray skies and rain. It's rained all day. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, first of all congratulations on that beautiful baby boy!! I think he does look like Max....that is so precious. I pray mommy will be okay. She will certainly be busy...smile... So glad their daddy is so good with Max. Also love the fact that you have a nest of baby robins!!!ReplyDelete
By the way, I always put my foot on the brake when I take a vehicle out of park...lol Guess my dad taught me that when I drove a stick shift, and it's stuck with me through all these years...ha!
Thank you Gert. These two little fellows are my heart throbs. They are slowly getting used to each other..well Max, since he knows something new is going on. Blessings, hope you do not get all the rain predicted I am praying it breaks up . xoxo, SusieDelete
This is such a precious picture of Luke, and I bet Max is going to be a good big brother. The fields of golden rod is so pretty. It must be a sight when looking at it. These baby birds are sweet, Susie. How wonderful that you got a picture of them.ReplyDelete
Stay safe with the thunderstorms, my dear friend.
Sheri, Max is beginning to realize that Luke is here to stay. He's not so happy when Mommy is nursing Luke. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
They are so adorable, Susie! Luke and Max, I mean!ReplyDelete
Dewena, I am loving having a new baby to cuddle. Just wish we lived closer. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
