Beauty fades, love is forever

April 19th was another anniversary for us. I remember the temperature was 80 degrees a far cry from what we are presently experiencing. The date was picked because my paternal grandfather married my grandmother on April 19th, 1919 and my folks thought it would be a nice date. Thirty two years, 3 kids, various pets, bats in our first and only house, 3 medical surgeries and the loss of 3 parents we continue to tick like a Timex watch. Not that we don't have troubles but we seem to meld even though we are two very different people. I'm a risk taker with ADHD married to an analytical person who never leaves the toothpaste cap off, recycles EVERYTHING, and never gets crumbs in the butter as I sometimes do (is that really so bad??). Even through all our differences life continues on. Now we're just waiting for grandchildren but in the meantime we'll hug, kiss and spoil each other. Life is good!

Is it snowing??

I was on the computer a few weeks ago and came into the living room to this.
I guess I assumed that since he now has turned one year old that things would settle but I was wrong. Needless to say I have put all pillows up out of reach, sometimes I kennel him so I don't I don't feel like killing him, and I am not on the computer as much unless he is in the same room with me. Do they ever grow up?? We still love him though and he still loves sitting on our laps whenever he gets the chance!

I'm not much for posting pics of flowers, trees, etc. but I was out walking in the yard after church Easter Sunday and thought I'd take a few pics of early budding in my "not much to speak of" garden. I haven't planted any of my annual veggies outside yet but plan on some yellow beans and maybe tomatoes even though I don't have much luck with the latter for some reason. Anyway my Peonies came up as usual
and a Columbine plant that I bought last year
is looking good as well as a Morning Glory plant
mixed in with - whats that?? Easter bunnies!

I may have to transplant - the Morning Glory not the Easter bunnies. Hopefully their mommy is returning soon since I had plans for that pot.
