Skywatch from the Rodeo Carnival

Here is my Sky Watch for Friday. I just love the all the bright lights!

I got tickets to go the Rodeo, my husband and I went with 2 good friends of ours. We decided to make the rounds at the carnival before enjoying the rodeo. Of course we rode the Ferris Wheel, but I chickened out of the other ride - I do not see any fun in being dropped out of the sky, though everyone else seems to think it's a good idea.

We had a great time. After some rides we enjoyed the games and some carnival goodies- popcorn, funnel cake, cotton candy and more.  I sure loved smelling all that not so good for you food and remembering going to the State Fair when I was a kid. Fun times!

Here I Am

My it's been a long while. Alot has been going on the last 6 plus months and I have really gotten behind on all the things I enjoy doing.

Taking pictures ~ reading~ side note: I got a Nook Color for Christmas from my hubby- can't wait to really start using it more than I have; ~ doing my daughter's senior year scrapbook and yes of course ~ blogging.

I did begin going to BSF (bible study fellowship) this year and I have really enjoyed getting back into a regular study of God's word. My husband was laid off - many have recently have gone through this, but we are blessed that he wasn't out of work too many months. Two of our boys moved out of state to Florida, they are now living closer to thier older brother and his family. I miss them, but I look so forward to a time when we may be able to visit all of them. Our youngest daughter will graduate high school this year and begin a new chapter in her life.

So many happenings in life big and small these past few months - I can't wait to share, to see and to hear what is going on with others in the blogspere!

Summer Storm

I saw this sky on my way home last night from work. This one passed my house by, but someone in town got some rain.

Butterfly Garden

My butterfly garden in the backyard. We are not seeing as many this year. Even a few are nice to see.

Morning Glories growing on the fence. I love the pink ones!

Spring is Done

Spring here in Texas has been really nice, but it didn't last long! With the rain we finally had wildflowers this year. It has been a couple of years since we had a nice crop. Spring really hasn't lasted, but I did plant a small veggie garden. The squash and tomotoes are looking good. Summer is coming quickly - we already have days reaching the 90's - the 100's are coming in the next few days. Time to turn on the AC!
