A Dog & Some Geese.... A Sherlock Tail (Tale) :)

Sorry about the Blogging break! With having a garage sale, and prep and clean out 
from + Attending a conference life's been REALLY busy! :) 

One of my brothers had a Birthday recently and for his birthday activity we went to
 a park.
(The word we includes Sherlock, who you might remember:)

Now this park ALWAYS has a LOT of geese waddling around, and to Sherlock they
 looked like a lot of toys to chase (Or maybe chew toys? lol) 

(Above Picture)
My brother had just gotten him out of the car & he had just seen the Geese!
 (Can you tell he was excited?)

This is what he saw! 
(What dog wouldn't get excited about seeing that! :)

As soon as the Geese saw him they were all waddling as fast as they could toward the lake.
(For good reason!)

Sherlock kept trying to pull my brother into the lake! He WANTED these birds! :)

Can I have them? :) 

He looked so sad when he couldn't! :D


When you all comment today I would love to see captions for this last picture!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Church Picnic and Garage Sale...My Week! :)

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week so far! 
We had our church picnic yesterday and it was a blast! AWESOME!!!!! 

But that combined with the fact that we are starting our Garage Sale TOMORROW means that sadly I will be absent this week :( 

A dragonfly I was able to get a picture of at the playground yesterday :) 

Cattails at the park!

And closeups of the Cattails! 

I hope you all have a lovely Fourth of July!

Some of the Beautiful Flowers in our Garden

Well hi everyone! I was going to do a post on one of our favorite meals (Enchilada casserole) but I was editing pictures and realized that I had all of the pictures of making the meal but I didn't have any of the finished meal (All the way cooked) so.....

You all get to see more of our flowers this week! :) 

It's getting HOT around here and although I'm kind-of wilting our flowers are doing GREAT! :)  

Yarrow Blossoms 

This is a little tiny flower that I think is a weed (But it's pretty so I took a picture anyway!)

More Yarrow flowers

Beautiful Purple Clematis blossoms

Pea Blossoms

Orange Lillie's!

I believe that this is a radish that went to seed/flowered..........

A Cucumber Blossom

A Carrot Top

Pea Blossoms again

I'm not sure what this one is........

Thanks for taking a little walk through our garden!

Signs of the Country! :)

Hi Everyone! 
Here is a post I've been meaning to write ever since we got home from our trip over Memorial day weekend! 


We were on our way to see family that lives a few hours away and I started reading the road signs............If you've ever driven in the country you know that there are some pretty cool signs! (+ the whimsical, weird and strange ones! :) and also the ones that make you laugh!)  
So.....here are a bunch of the signs I saw! Enjoy! :)


P.S. Sorry some of the pictures are blurry, it's kind-of hard to take clear pictures when driving down the highway! :)
