Some of you have been responding to my emailed posts and I haven't taken the opportunity to reply to most yet, but I really do appreciate it! Thanks so much, and I will respond eventually. I tend to get behind on my email on a regular basis, but don't stop emailing, because I love it. :)
The weekend was good and had a nice mix of activities and down time. Here's a photo-summary.
Some goslings were hanging out near my place all Saturday morning. Who doesn't love baby animals?
I watched my friend's son for a few hours Saturday morning. He liked playing with the magnets on my fridge.
And he was fascinated with the watering can. Hm...I've never thought to look down the spout.
I baked a German chocolate cake (from a mix) for my friend's birthday. I did two frostings since I wasn't sure who liked coconut.
After a delicious chicken enchilada dinner at a friend's place, some of us had beverages at Applebee's to help celebrate Jennifer's birthday (which is today!).
My [virgin] pina colada and D's Shirley Temple. She looks very proud of her amazing balance-the-cherry-on-the-straw stunt. Do I have talented friends or what?! Jennifer helpfully points out the cherry.
In case you haven't seen enough photos of Jennifer, I thought I'd post one more. :)
Then we came back to my place to watch (or criticize, in my case) Ever After and have cake.
Sunday found me being lazy and headachey after church. I put on sweats and watched some Alias, talked to a friend (and literally laughed for several minutes over the word "wool"--long story), blogged about my mom, looked through pictures and played some games. I also took a couple of nature photos from my back deck:
A Black-throated Gray Warbler. I hadn't seen one before, so I'm happy to add it to my photo archive of bird sightings. I mean, if I had one. I should probably organize that in my spare time.
Then there was this rainbow later on. I don't think I've seen this type of rainbow scene before.
Happy birthday, Jennifer! Thanks for being such a devoted blog reader, photo poser, text messager and DVD loaner, among other things. :) I really appreciate you and your friendship.
