Daffodils have always been my favorite Springtime flower.

Our new addition to the family. They are a pair of Quaker parrots.

See a bigger picture of them HERE.

They are so cute. Peanut can say ‘Step Up’, and when you ask him what a chicken says he clucks like a chicken. He’s 4 years old and likes females better. He’s the quieter of the two. The lady who rescued these two said he was her baby.

Kiwi, laughs and says ‘Good Boy, Peanut’. She doesn’t really like me very much, and is very protective of Peanut. She won’t let me come near him.

My husband’s family owned an African Grey growing up, and when I met him, he had a pair of Cockatiel.  It’s a sad story what happened to them, and I’ve wanted to buy him another pair, when he came across these who including cage, toys and food, would have cost the same. My husband couldn’t have been happier, he was like a kid with a new toy. Kiwi just loves him. They are adjusting well.

I thought this rose bush died in the frost we had a couple of months ago. Imagine how Wordless I was to see a rose blooming allready! YEAH, it’s not dead, it’s alive! Hopefully within the next couple months I’ll get some better shots.


Katelyn’s birthday was last Saturday, but since we were in California, we celebrated it today. Yes, I did cut her hair by 5in and donated her hair to Lockes of Love. I miss her pretty hair, but I can tell she’s happier with it cut.

Happy Birthday, Katelyn!



This is a nightstand my husband made out of Texas Mesquite from Austin,TX. He sprayed clear laquer and gloss on it. That’s the natural color of the wood. I really like the rustic look of it. Our neighbor told my husband to make 2 more and take them down to Scottsdale to see if some of the Western furniture stores might want to buy them.


It finally rained today! YAY! It felt really good, a nice rainstorm. It came down in buckets for a little bit. We really needed this. I tried to take a shot of the rain as it came off our garage. My husband said I didn’t have a fast enough shutter speed!

Since last week was Spring break, I’m cheating and posting Seven pictures from last week’s trip to California.

Josh at Newport Beach, CA!

I absolutely LOVE Bird of Paradise, and this was the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen.

Sorry this shot is a little blurry. We don’t call him ‘Speedy’ for nothing. He wouldn’t stay still to have his picture taken. I think we’ve had him almost a year. Here’s a pic of him, when we first got him.



What I don’t like about my bathroom is the ugly shade of green, which didn’t come out great. We’re remodeling the bathroom. We still need to put in a new tub and a new paint job. What I do love about it our my mosaic hooks. About finding pics to take for a color theme, I’m noticing that most of the colors in my house are Earth tones. Tan, beige, lt. green, green and brown.


Here’s a shot of my rosebush I planted back in January. I didn’t take a pic of it last month, because of the frost. I did lose a couple of the canes on the left. Isn’t something how last month it was freezing and this month it’s 90F! Here’s a shot of my rosebush in January.
