It's The Little Things In Life

I'm starting to get back in the groove of things...hopefully my energy level will rise to meet the challenge ahead!

The weather turned out to be pretty nice, so I took advantage of the fact and took Lucy for a walk. My good friend, Diana, lives just down the road and I was blessed to have her join me!

Walking the dog is a drudgery for me, so it was wonderful to have a good friend to visit with while I made the time go SO much faster!

Once I got back home I worked a little bit outside.  The ducks LOVE it when I work outside! They follow me around to see what kind of good things get unearthed.

Although there aren't a lot of creepy crawlers around yet, I did find a couple of pathetic worms I was able to feed Pink-Pink....

Wow, she's fast!

And, the tomatoes are finally all transplanted....

All in all it was a good day!


  1. Daphne: "Who's ducks are those?"
    Me: "GALs"
    D: "She lives far away? We have to go on an airplane to see her?"
    Me: "Do you wish we could go see her?"
    D: "yes"
