Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Saturday Snapshot & Quote



Saturday Snapshot
hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.



Why, yes, that is a small parrot sharing my dinner!


A group of friends got together at a park and one of the men brought his parrot, Kiwi. Kiwi was on the grass while Emory went to the cars. When Kiwi started eying the chair Emory was last in, my husband sat down and Kiwi jumped up on his leg. Husband asked for a piece of bread from my sandwich and as soon as Kiwi figured out that I had the bread, over he flew.











While we had been sharing our water out of the lid of our water bottle, I was thinking Kiwi wanted something a little bigger..... We got it on video (my new iTouch!) and Kiwi was really having a blast. It was so hot that day, the splash felt good :)

Very cool photos, and a very unusual pet to take to the park, LOL.
