One of the things we did this week while Spring cleaning! We've had the shelf for a bit and I finally got it up in the kitchen and I love it! It's so pretty!

It's Spring Cleaning time!!! And we've been working on it all week. I have to be honest though and say that not only was it my sister's doing but she's done the bulk of the work as well. I hadn't actually caught the "Spring Cleaning Bug". lol 
I will say though, things look a lot better! Did some much needed de-cluttering and organizing. :-)

I greatly dislike it when the photo comes out blurry. But then I'm too lazy to disconnect the camera and shoot a couple more. lol

My new friend, Lula Belle. :-)

She belongs to a lady I help take care of and she is the sweetest bird. I just love Parakeets. :-) But! She didn't like my phone! lol She would sit on her perch and chat with me (Yes! She talks to me! It's so cute!) until I put the phone up to snap a photo and then she'd jump up into her corner. lol

Today there were butterflies all over the neighbors Lilac bush! Well...all over being a relative term but I would say there were a couple dozen at least. :-) I was only able to take a few shots though because my card was full! So frustrating!!! I wanted to shoot and shoot!

Lots of fun. :-)

So last night (the 16th), I'm laying in bed almost asleep when I realize that though I thought of taking multiple photos all day ... I didn't take any. So I bleary eyed pull my phone out ..... and shoot a photo of the TV as I'm laying in bed. LoL! Hey! At least there's a photo on today's post! :-P

You just never know what you'll run across at our house just laying around...

My brother's door knob. lol

Oh, and it was still raining today. :-)
This is just part or what we call Lake Riverside. And it only got bigger as it continued to rain all day!

Now I'm off to bed because I'm pooped and tomorrow will only come too soon and it's fillin' up already!

In Nebraska "Spring" is a synonym tornadoes. We had 3 run through town this evening along with a lot of hail. I heard there was some larger hail than what we have but what got me was how much there was!

It almost looked like it had snowed! lol

It's the little things in life...

Things like "Peel here" corners. :-P

We had rain on and off all day today. It was so pretty! This is a tree across the street from my house. 

I just loved the contrast of the dark, wet, trunk with the green of the new leaves. :-)

Some days are just "old fashioned fried potatoes for supper" days. :-)

My 100th 365 post! Woohoo! Well...I did miss a few in the middle... lol Oh well. :-) Still an exciting milestone.

We have a Lilac bush outside our house, it's actually the neighbors, and I just love it in early Spring when it blooms. I could inhale that scent all day. Makes me heady. :-) I love, love, love the scent of Lilacs.

The way cool gift that my brother made for our good friend's birthday!

Oh! I'm home!!!! Had a wonderful, wonderful visit but was definitely excited to see my family again. :-)

Happiness in your hand. :-)

Okay, maybe not but it does taste good. :-) Note: these are the peanut butter ones aka the best ones. :-P
Now off on a weekend trip to visit a friend! Will try to catch up when I get home! I'm bringing my camera so might actually shoot something. :-P

I cut my finger this morning! 

It really hurt! Sliced a big flap of skin off! :-(
And it was my shutter finger so it was really interesting trying to get the shot! lol

My mom volunteers at a local thrift store and every now and then she brings home some neat stuff. Today she brought home this neat "old fashioned" milk shake maker!

Isn't it cool! Can't wait to give it a try!

Did not take a photo ALL DAY! And no, I'm not playing an April Fool's joke on you. lol I had my camera with me all day and thought of taking a photo a couple of different times ... but never did. :-S
*sigh* I really have to stop this.
