Day 121- Pedernales Falls

This is a beautiful place to visit. Even more so now. Texas has been in an extreme drought and the water levels are way down. If you look at the rock here you can see where the water levels are usually. This is Pedernales Falls in Texas. Its a long hike down and on the way down this lady was coming up and had to keep resting. She stopped to talk to me and tell me that she had just scattered her husbands ashes there. It was his favorite place and that is what he wanted. I was so sad for her that she had to do it alone. I can't blame him for wanting it though, just look at the picture!!!

Day 120- Lake Travis, Austin Texas

We went camping over the 4th of July weekend to a place called Pace Bend Park. It sits on Lake Travis and this is the view we had every day of camping. It has tons of cliffs and we would go out and sit on the cliff in the evening and enjoy the hot breeze!

Day 119- Praying Mantis

This is the first time I have ever seen a praying mantis in real life!! They are so cute and he was very sweet to stand there and let me take a picture of him!!!!

Finally after over 30 days without rain, it rained. It was a true blue storm with thunder and lightening. I was able to catch this lightening strike. It's really bright isn't it!

Monday, June 29, 2009

Day 117- I've been published!!

As most of you who follow me know, I am a crafter. I try not to post craft projects here since I have a blog just for that but this news was just too exciting! I've been published in the September issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine. This is the card that is in there!!! I'm so excited!

Friday, June 26, 2009

Day 116- Awww, isn't he cute!

I walked into the bedroom to see Jiggs poking his little head out of the covers. Isn't he cute!

Day 115- My new best friend

This is my new best friend lately. It's been so dry here, as you can tell from my grass. I've been having to water every single day to keep my veggies and flowers alive. It's too hot and it's been over a month since it rained. Of course it rained yesterday all around me but never one drop at my house.

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Day 114- H.O.T.

This was today's high. Yuck......need I say more.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Day 113- Cicada

These are the loudest little insects ever! It's very rare to actually see one up close like this. The little brown shell, called a nymph, is what the insect lives in until it is adult and ready to fly. It usually climbs into a tree and then hatches. This one I found on a wooden railing so I was really happy to see it!!

Monday, June 22, 2009

Day 112- Pear tree

This is a pear tree in my Grandparents backyard. It was just full of them. They aren't ripe yet so there was no picking of them!

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Day 111- Cherries

There's nothing better then fresh cherries! I got these on sale for $1.99 a pound, which is an awesome deal!!! I can't wait to sink my teeth into them!

Day 109- Ducks

I went to the park today and got a shot of these cute ducks! I have no clue what type they are. I was only at the park for about 10 mins because it was way too hot.

Day 108- Blooming Cactus

This is the flower that my cactus is blooming right now. It only blooms once a year and is a really pretty pink color!

Saturday, June 13, 2009

Day 107- Corn

I just love fresh corn on the cob. I got this corn to put on the pit. Just peel back the husk, clean the fibers, rub well with butter, sprinkle with a little garlic powder then pull the husk back up and throw on the pit. No soaking needed and boy is it good!!

Day 106- Saying Goodbye

Today was the switch to Digital TV and I had to say goodbye to my old friend. This tv is so old that it doesn't have hookups for anything. I have it in my kitchen to watch the news while I"m cooking. I hate to part with it because it still works if it weren't for the dtv transition. Oh well, I guess it's time to move on to better things!

Day 105- Tomatoes

These are my first two tomatoes of the year!!! Aren't they pretty!! These are from the tomato plant that I have growing upside down in my topsy turvey!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Day 104- Sewing

Well I've decided to finally tackle my lace curtains. I was given eight panels a little over a year ago. I got them hung but they were all way too long and some needed to be re-sewn at the top. I left them hanging the way they were because I didn't want to mess with them. I am a novice sewer so I was a little scared about messing them up. I decided that they just needed to be done and it doesn't matter what they look like when I'm done!!! So far so good!

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Day 103- Watermelon

I love that it's watermelon time again!!! This is a seedless one I bought and boy is it good!

Monday, June 8, 2009

Day 102- Crepe Myrtle

My crepe myrtle's are finally blooming!!! Yippee!!!!! I've been seeing all the ones in my neighborhood blooming but mine. I just love the big bright blooms they produce. I have two pink and one white white.

day 101- Baby Feet

I took my niece on a photo shoot in my front yard. She is three months old and this was the first time her little feet had ever touched grass!!! She was so cute too. She had her little toes squirming all over the place! The dark spot you see on her left foot is a birthmark.

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Day 100- Nosy

Well I finally made it to day 100!!!! I figured since I started out with a picture of Jiggs on day 1 I should have another one of him on day 100. Doesn't he have a cute nose!!!

I just love fresh raspberries!! Kroger, which is a local grocery store, had them on sale for 99 cents so I bought a ton of them! Yum!!!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Day 96- Jiggs.....again

I know it's a little blurry but I couldn't resist posting it. I cracked up when I saw it on the computer screen. He was outside playing and I just stuck the camera under him and snapped. This is what I got!

Day 95- Aphid

I am always battling these little buggers. They are actually kinda funny if you watch them. When you get close to them they go sideways and under a leaf to try and hide from you. It took me a little work to get this picture because he kept running from me but I finally got it!

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Day 94- Topsy Turvy

I decided to try out this topsy turvy upside down tomato planter. I have to say so far it's working great. I have a couple of cute little tomatoes growing on it! It's easy too, no weeding required!!!

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Day 93- Gladiolus

I have some gladiolus growing in my flower bed and I just love them!!!! This is one of my favorites. The color is beautiful. I wish they bloomed year round! I got the blubs at the dollar store a few years ago and they never fail to bloom! They are must have in any garden!

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Day 92- Me and my cousin

I've just gotten home from visiting my cousin. She is in the one in the pink and I am in orange. It's a blurry picture and there is a finger in the way. My seven year old little cousin took the picture!! I think she did good for a seven year old though!!!

Day 88- Orange Tree and Vinca

This is an orange tree that I've had planted in this pot for several years. I get oranges from it every year. This last year some vinca that I had planted someplace else decided to transplant itself! I didn't know vinca would do that! I love how it looks with the tree though! I wish all flowers were so easy!

Day 87- It's all about the hair

I have that kind of hair that you either have to work hard at to fix it or throw it in a ponytail. There isn't any of that washing, letting it dry on it's own and it looking good. I have super thick hair and it tends to have a mind of it's own. It seems that the hairdresser does too! Every time I go and ask her to do something she always puts her own twist on it. This was my last haircut that I had done a few days ago. The back of my hair will do OK but if I were to show you the front view you'd scream!!
