Good Bye 2013

Seems like the year just started.

A brief look back at 2013

It was a cold new year

everybody tried to keep warm

spring brought  new babies

and first haircuts!

 Mia was the new "tiny" one

 while Aurora grew up,  became a star

and met her prince charming!

Lazzie Pi Zazzy became our new definition of being so ugly you're cute

 Baxter wants to be a house dog and Minnie wants for nothing...


and so it goes...

another year gone and one coming on strong!

Good bye 2013 ~

Baby Its Cold Outside!

Living in Florida, we tend to think anything below 70 is exciting. So when it goes down in to the 40s or even the high 30s at night we get hysterical.

A frosty window becomes a work of art.


Isnt that amazing? Put down your snow shovels, take off your boots and come look people! You dont want to miss this. Frost on a window. Ah, the wonder of it all...

it transforms things...makes the banana tree peeking safely out from its warm earthen pot indoors, look as though its been spray painted in silver.

Sadly there is a blue sky full of sunlight waiting to melt my sugar cookie glazed windows...

even the little drawings on the bottom right pane made by hungry chickens little faces peeking in, wondering what is holding up breakfast.

Silly chickies...why just the other day they were complaining about me following them around taking pictures. They ESPECIALLY dont like me taking their picture before they have combed their hair and put on their make-up! 

"NO early morning pictures pleeease" is what they always say.

So sorry chickaroos, I can only take so many pictures of icy glass before I start looking around 


aha! Let me take a few more chicken pictures to go with my seven million other chicken pictures!

One can never have too many photos of fabulous fowl, thats what I always say!

As for the chickens? 

Well THEY say............

"oh no, here she comes with that camera again!

run for it!"

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” 
― C.S. Lewis

We have been not only reading one but living one for the last few very rich and special years. But fairy tales are not limited to one time and place.

Some special people are now discovering new fairy tales in strange new lands

a piece of my heart is going along for the ride

a look back...

May you grow up to be righteous/May you grow up to be true/ May you always know the truth/And see the lights surrounding you/ May you always be courageous/stand upright and be strong/and may you stay/forever young
