If I Am Really Still

I walked over where we put Tender’s corn on Saturday, and when I looked up I saw this cute guy enjoying a kernel on the pecan tree. His coat made him almost camouflaged. Quite a stealthy little guy.

I posted this on my other blog. Love this big guy.

This guy is growing, emphasis on growing, into an awesome guard frog. He is HUGE, looks like a mutant when next to his froggy pals. That is a watering bucket outside my door that he was proudly perched on when we came home last night.

Harmless or Not? Can You Identify?

Can you identify this creature? For you repile lovers, I must admit that he is no longer among the living. When I saw him, I almost went before him, not decapitated as he was, but heartattack. I HATE SNAKES!

Please do not hate me, we have dogs, little bitty chihuahuas to be worried about, and big sissy adults to worry about too.

Kindness

At the beach this weekend I spent a good bit of my time people watching as the hubs and his pal were off collecting hermit crabs.

I was so grateful to have my camera and be able to catch this act of service.

There is a large sand bar and then a small stream before you get to the shore. This family had apparently spent the day out on the sandbar and this is what happened next.

We Call Her Tender, As In Tender Mercy

Tender mercies come in all shapes and sizes. Several months ago my Mother was going through a particularly difficult time and while she was in her yard as therapy Heavenly Father sent the sweetest tender mercy to her. They are now dear friends, no pun intended.

She follows Mother along the chain link fence, comes to Mother’s voice and her name, “Tender” or “Baby”. She will stand and watch you as you watch her. She has a gentle wisdom in her eyes. She is so beautiful. My camera battery went dead so I did not get too many good shots, but there are a couple. I hope to get more soon.

I mentioned to Mother, “Tender is ruining my love of deer sausage and deer meat.”

Just look at her. (I am shooting through the fence, so that’s the blur. The last, I thought was just a neat picture.)

Week Photo Challenge: He Loves Unconditionally

Roscoe is the most compassionate dog I know. He picks up on cues. I was feeling down. He came over and laid his head on my tummy as if to say, “Mom, I am here.”

When I or my husband cough, he runs and jumps on the other until we let him know that his other parent is okay. He can be awakened from a deep sleep or in another room by a cough a do this. Sweet sweet boy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through MY Eyes

My Life 6-21

 

Not far from my house lies this mound of scrap metal and junk. I can relate to it in so many ways.  I feel thrown away.  Like I have been left by the wayside, tossed and forgotten.  Those parts that were once shiny and new, have become weathered and are not longer useful.  I do not even recognize what I am anymore, much less who, or why.  Depressed, hating myself, thoughts of suicide nearly daily, but according the our wonderful government “Occasional depression that will not interfere with work.”  Right.

I would hate to know what constant depression and anxiety feels like.  I really am tired of trying.  Okay, I give.

Daily Prompt: Moment of Kindness

I told Lillee a joke. She smiled a courtsey smile.

Then she caught the punchline…

Then she could not contain herself…

I asked her if she liked that joke…and she winked at me.
