So happy to see the family of deer this morning. It has been several months since they were spotted frolicking on the pond bank. This morning their growth is of a more mature animal. There is more awareness of the surroundings where a few months ago they were skipping and jumping with each other. Definitely more reserved today. Such happiness to spy them so close to the ocean. #beachdeer#morninggifts#naturecuties#pondlife#southernshoresnc
I love it when @mamacrosski leaves me notes in the morning! 🤣😂 She's gotten quite in to coffee of late, and I am all for any opportunity to use the little coffee mug my sister got me from Egypt last year! Fun fact: the mug actually broke in transit and my sister's boyfriend glued it back together for me. If anyone wants to donate some gold for me to stick it back together in the Japanese style, I promise I won't hoard it and use it for its intended purpose!
15 years later and my hubby never ceases to amaze me. I don’t know what I did to deserve any of this. My amazing life, my beautiful kids and a husband who has unconditionally loved me since 19 years old. He has 4 years on me, so 23 for him. 🤣 I like to give him crap, because his birthday is the weekend after our anniversary lol. Anyway, he always reminds me I’m not far behind him. But in all seriousness, I almost can’t believe this is my life. Waking up in Astoria to this beautiful surprise. He had these chocolate dipped strawberries specially made, they did not just have them at the store! And even though he hates seafood, (except bowpicker), he found the only restaurant that serves chilled crab legs with a trough of drawn butter, just like Saltys. I am beyond blessed and am so grateful for the amazing life we have built together.
Observation #1 : Zoe decided to start using the potty 3 days ago. 👶🏼💩
Observation #2 : This morning I found cat poop in the bathroom on the vent. 😼💩
Observation #3 : The cat has never pooped in the bathroom before. 💩💣
Conclusion: After learning how to use the potty, Zoe used her new expertise to train the cat. My child is a genius.
Side note for further research: a night of the heating kicking in dehydrated the poop rapidly, 💩💨 thereby eliminating would-be odours. 👃💩 (Here's hoping no poop nugs were small enough to fall through the vent.) 💩🕳😽
Rose of Sharon in the early morning light. It would bloom whether I walked by or not, because it doesn’t flower to impress anyone. It simply flowers. “You wouldn’t worry so much about what people think of you if you realized how seldom they do.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt #roseofsharon#eleanorroosevelt#morningwalk
