Summer Vacation!

Rhetta woke up early on Saturday morning (our first day of summer vacation and she can't sleep in?) and asked "It's the first day of summer vacation, can we go to the beach?"

Well, no, we can't go to the beach but we can pretend! We took out the kiddie pool and turned on the hose. Next thing we turned half of the dirt pile into a mudhole.

Instant fun!

Holy Shit Hair Hell

I can't stop laughing! I don't know where he gets it.

He's playing with the clown wig. His "hair hat". Endless fun, let me tell you.

He stops and pulls at a single strand of fake hair that had made its way into his nose, or mouth, I don't know. But he pulled it completely out of the wig.

Then he looks at it and says, "Hell! Holy shit hair hell!"

Views in My Backyard 2011/1

Here are some of my spring 2011 favorites thus far (Part 1 of a new series):

The view(s) from my hammock chair.




The Giraffe Tree.


Boneless Chuck (He's been with us for countless years, seriously I forget how long.)


The Strawberry Fairies.


And finally, a study in greens and yellows.

Blooming Rock Garden 2011/2

This is an itty bitty transplant from the nearby desert that I was just sure wasn't going to make it. It's try #2 (RIP #1). But I had trod upon this little guy last year by accident and couldn't just leave it to die of shock.

This morning I noticed it had a bud on it! I was so excited I took a picture. Imagine my heart flipping in my chest this evening when I found it had bloomed while I was gone today. I very nearly hurt myself trying to find the camera before the sun set.

Happy Mother's Day

I got kisses and hugs and "I love you"'s, a homemade card - so cute - and lotsa rocks (Yippee!) plus a yummy fruit tart as a surprise from the hubby (Mmmmmm). I got to sleep in. I got to spend most of the day in my garden. I even got to nap. Success!

Happy 8th Mother's Day to me. *grin*


It Started With a Burp and a Fart

Momma: BUUURP! excuse me!

Willon: toot *snicker*

Momma and Willon: Eee hee hee hee hee hee!

Willon: You burped, Momma!

Momma: And you tooted at the SAME TIME!

Momma and Willon: BAH HA HA HA HA HA HAHAHAHA!

Momma: Like Momma, like son! LOL

Willon: Yeah, you make the rules and I follow them.

I was all like, Huh?

Rhetta asked me: What's a bunch of violence?

I answered: The string section in an orchestra? (har har - I think I'm so funny.)

Rhetta: Momma! what's a bunch of violence?? (ignoring my joke COMPLETELY!)

I said: I don't know, what's a bunch of violence? (playing along)

Rhetta: Hawaii!

Me: Huh?

I asked Rob: What does she mean a bunch of violence is Hawaii? (totally confused)


Me: Huh?

Rob: That's funny! Violence... violins.

Me: NO! She said... then I said... then she said... (I recount)

Rob: BAH HA HA HA HA HA! A bunch of islands is Hawaii! She's right! She totally got you!

Me: Huh?

Rob: Islands! Islands! A bunch of islands is Hawaii.

Me: D'oh!
