Day 34 - May 31, 2011 - San Diego

My last post was on May 22, 2011 so I have failed
this year in my quest to add a post a day.....
But I was on VACATION!

I flew out to San Diego CA. for my son's
wedding. Pics will come later on the wedding
since my son, Cory and my new daughter Britney
are in Hawaii right now and I am not posting
actually wedding pics till they have their disc
in hand....but till then, I have other pics.


This is a view of San Diego from the Coronado
Bridge as my sis in law drove over, I snapped
Beautiful blue water and sky!
Weather was fantastic.

Day 33- May 22, 2011 - Oh Birdie, Birdie

Sitting on the deck and this little guys lands in the
bush next to me.
Then I watch this one on the creek bank eyeing either
the water or me. Thinking it must have been me
because he flew off before he took a dip in the
cool water.
But this one, she took a dip. As I was about
to photograph her in the water my dog ran up
scaring her off.

Day 31- May 20, 2011 - Every 13 years

Two weeks ago they started to come out....
Digging there way to the top and coming out
of their skin, shells...whatever.
But....we had a cold spell for about
4 days, and their activity was just about nothing.
Hoping that was the end of them since they were

But how wrong that thought was.
Two days ago it warmed up and
here came thousand and thousands
of them.

When they first appear they are white. When their
body hardens then they change color.

Ugly little critter.
This is the wall in my Mom's yard this morning.
And this is the second time I have woke to find
this site on my front porch.
The whole cycle thing of the Cicadas is rather interesting
but I will be so glad when this is over.

Day 30- May 19, 2011 - Elementry Graduation

DuPont Elementry School.
This is where my grandson Caleb goes.

This is his principal.
And that is Caleb in the red shirt preparing
to sing in his school program. Caleb is really
bad about not bringing papers home for his
Mom to read, so I was unprepared for
this program and only had my point and
shoot. Wished I had my Nikon.
Part of the program.
Caleb getting his certificate of graduation from his
teacher Mrs. Wilson.
Look Nana, I get to go to the 5th grade.
Proud of you sweetie!

Day 29- May 18, 2011 - Random Things for Today

Today........I was just playing around with my
little point and shoot camera.

My office window.

My office cube....
My clown freaks out one of my co-workers so
she turned her upside down! lol

See the local community calendar?
That is my pic for May. Yes, I am
Ms. May! lol
Check out my nails~
I love purple....but that is not what I am talking
about. I have always wanted long nails, never
have been able to grow them cause they
split and broke. Now that I take a large
dose of calcium I have nails.
And they are driving me crazy. I want to keep them
for awhile to see if I can adjust to them but....
I can't tpye with them (yes, I know they are not
that long but I am not use to them)...I can't do
anything for fear that I will break one off!

Now for dinner tonight. Local mexican place..
the snack before dinner.
Dinner.....yummy. It was good but so large that
I had issues......
and I made the mistake of letting Theresa have my

Day 28 - May 17, 2011 - Silly Face

My youngest brother!

While sitting at my nieces college graduation
a little girl sitting to seats down from
my brother looked over at him...
he made a face somewhat like this,
she busted out crying and nothing
the parents did would calm her down.

Everytime she looked at him, she cried harder.

Day 27 - May 16, 2011 - Lava

Congrats to my beautiful niece Paige on
her college graduation last night from
Western Ky...

A sea of red.

I had no problems with it. Paige and her
proud aunt with her silly uncle Mark (my
other brother) in

Now Mark can be front and center to have his
pic made with his niece. That is also my
sister in law Kim.  Happy Birthday
to Kim also.
Adam, Paiges sweetheart. And he is that
for sure.

Congrats once again Paige. I am very, very proud of
