Nature, Feline and Birthday Friday

  Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

One of my favorite NCSU Physics PhD students in the late 1990's is now a Professor at University of Arkansas, where he lives with wife and three daughters.

His wife, Sandra, is an elementary school Teacher and amateur Photographer

On January 2, 2022,she posted the most amazing snowflake photos, I have ever seen, on her personal blog.  She wrote:

The snow was so light and you could see so many individual snowflakes...

My comment on her blog was:  these are award winning photos and 100%  National Geographic quality.  

Today is my Birthday
Yesterday my husband went on a secret mission. 
When he got home he said, "DON'T come downstairs 'till I call you"!
He was setting up this most beautiful birthday surprise

Here is a close up:

The cake is Hot Cocoa Cheese Cake IT IS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!
A bottle of pink champagne
A bottle of DR Riesling and a card.
A beautiful blooming tulip with several more about to open
The candles and hummingbird were the decorations

Bizarro always makes me laugh

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #51


Angel Sammy and Teddy find such inspiring photos for us

Here is today's inspiration

This picture reminded me of the first and only time my daughter went skiing.  She was about 19 years old

A day trip to ski they wanted to  go 
her friends said you can go too
She replied I don't know

I'm not a fan of the cold and the snow
I can skate, ride a bike
and jump rope.

Can I ski you ask, that would be a 
big NOPE.

No worries they said
you will be on the Bunny Slope.

It read: can you find every furry body?

I replied: of course they all have the best seats in the family room.

I continue to take photos of this mirror on a very steep curve on the NCAM trail.  I'm beginning to think maybe it is to prove to 
everyone we actually did climb it


Yesterday I....hinted to a road trip I would post about today.
Sometimes I move post around forgetting to check content.
The post yesterday was supposed to be on December 19... and was referring 
to the adorable red truck on my December 20th post HERE

I'm 100% sure Angel Madi would say "Mom if you didn't work for FREE
I'd fire you"
