Fly Away

I finally got a good picture of the baby bird - thank goodness because they flew away the very next day!! Here he is poking his head out of the birdhouse waiting for Momma to bring him some food! Isn't he sooo cute??

This morning, our neighbor called to tell us that we had a baby deer sleeping in our backyard at 8:00 a.m. Obviously, we weren't awake to see it, but from now on, we are going to keep an eye out for it! That would be so exciting since we have never had deer here before!

Not much else going on around here. Back to work tomorrow, but at least it is a short, holiday week! It will go fast, too, since we have fireworks to attend Wednesday (Heath) and Thursday (Buckeye Lake) night. I love fireworks, but Kel isn't a big fan. She does enjoy the ones at Buckeye Lake, though. My brothers take us out on their boats so we can watch from the water. They break right above you, at least it seems like it. I absolutely LOVE them!

Everyone have a safe holiday and take care! Until next time....

Sunday, June 22nd

Hello all. I've got some sad news to report today. On Friday, June 20th, I lost my step-brother Greg Ryan. He was only 31 years old and he unfortunately ended his own life. Please keep his mother (my step-mother Lorrie) and his siblings Kristin and Joe in your prayers. Although we'll miss him greatly; I hope he is at peace. On a bit of a brighter note, I've included some new pictures of the pets and a few of the wildlife in our backyard. There's no toads but a couple sparrows at a feeder. We currently have some baby birds in a birdhouse and I've been trying to close enough for a photo. I'll try to zoom in and if you look real close at the bottom hole, you may be able to see one of the babies with it's mouth open. We'll talk again soon! Kelly

Well, this weekend is Newark graduation and my nephew, Joe, is graduating! Hard to believe, really. Of course, it is an outside graduation ceremony and the weather is calling for 90-95 degrees! Should be steamy!! I would post some pics, but my new camera is being repaired. Yep, I had it for less than a month and the LCD screen went out! Couldn't exchange it because I had thrown the box away so they have to repair it. Hopefully, I will get it back soon. I didn't even have the chance to download my pics from our Memorial Day picnic. When I get it back, I will try to do that!

Not much else going on here. We got our flowers planted and now just need to lay some mulch down. Haven't seen the toad since Kelly relocated it to the school a couple of weeks ago. I am hoping it doesn't make its way back (nor do any of its friends & family!)

We are only a little over a month away from NYC! Trying to find a dog sitter since ours moved to PA. I am sure it will all work out.

Stay cool out there! I am off to play some Poppit on Pogo!!
