Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real

PRETTY








The other morning there was gorgeous dew on the grass, and I just had to get out there with my camera to capture it!  I'm continually amazed by the beauty that's all around us, if we just slow down to really see it.



HAPPY


 My little man is 3 months old already, and is all smiles these days!  How can you not be happy at the sight of this little chubby little beaming face?!

 

 FUNNY

We wanted to crown our little statue of Mary for the month of May, but were having a hard time coming up with something suitable to fit her head (this statue is only about 5 inches tall).  Later in the day Adam came running up to me proclaiming, "I found the PERFECT crown for Mary!  Let's use Megan's beautiful ring!!"  So, yes, our Mary statue is now donning a 5 n' Dime plastic children's ring.  I agree, it is pretty perfect. :)



REAL






If you can believe it, these slimy nasty-looking things are REAL, though they look like something straight out of a horror film!  AND they're allllllll over my backyard right now!  They're a fungus called Cedar Apple RustThey're currently inhabiting my cedar tree, making it look like it belongs in an orange grove!  They're actually pretty fascinating to learn about.  They take 2 years to complete their growth cycle.  Google away if you have a minute!


Gah!  Sooooooo gross!

  1. I had to do a double take on the fungus, it is like something you would expect to see deep in the ocean - not in a tree, fascinating.
    The baby smiles are so contagious, you can't look at them and not grin!

  2. Okay lady. I am glad I visited you! Your profile info is me in a nutshell (minus the Catholic part. We are protestant.) But other than that. You are me. I am you! And I LOVE your dew pictures! I always take dew pictures too because they look so diamond-ly...which you captured so beautifully in that second picture down! So gorgeous!

    The other morning I *ALMOST* went out on a very dewy morning to do the same but I was chilled and lazy and didn't. Now I regret it! Thanks for letting me enjoy YOUR pictures though!

    1. WOW, we ARE totally the same!! That is awesome! I'm so glad we "found" each other! :) And I SO get laziness trumping getting out there with the camera! I had to psyche myself up to take those pics--it was 6am and dang chilly out! Now I can't wait to go find out more similarities between us on your blog! :)
