Going On Safari

How would you like to see THIS coming in your car window???  
Yeah, this is what nightmares are made of!  Bwahahahaa...

NOT Really!  It was a GREAT adventure!  Let me tell you about it...

I am a huge animal lover...and going on a safari sounded like fun to me!  And when it's practically in your own backyard (an hour away) then you go...and you take your grangirl!
After spending a wonderful day in Hunstville, Alabama (I'll tell of that adventure in the near future) we decided to end the day at the Harmony Safari Park.  To say it is off the beaten path is an understatement, but my trusty GPS led us right to the gates!  As we entered, there were clearly marked signs everywhere to lead you up to where you need to buy tickets and animal food.  I bought two tubs of food (one for the each of us) and we began our adventure.

Ivy Green

Welcome to Ivy Green, home of Helen Keller.

My grangirl loves history, so she was ecstatic when I told her we were actually going to Ivy Green, Helen Keller's home in Tuscumbia, Alabama!

Fun At The Falls

I always enjoy when my grangirl comes for a visit.  We have had such a good time this summer.  In my next few posts, I'll share some of the highlights.

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

Does anybody really know what time it is? 
Does anybody really care?
I sure had a great TIME with my youngest son and his family on the 4th!

Paris Flea Market

Our second day in Paris was a Saturday...perfect timing for the Flea Market!  

Now, I don't speak any language except English, however, I learned a few phrases before the trip...enough to get by.  It came in handy, but I was thrilled to find so many people that spoke English. I even came across one man that serenaded us while we shopped.  He was very good-natured and poked a little fun at us southern belles...but in a nice way!  
So, let take a little look at my flea market purchases...

I'm Back!

I'm sure you have been wondering where I've been. gets busy, and unfortunately blogging takes a back seat.  Since I posted last, my family has added two new additions....two new grandsons six weeks apart.  I am truly blessed by three precious grandkids!!!  School has been busy with many changes happening in our system...and most recently, I went to Europe as soon as school was out.  I'll be posting about my adventures in Paris, France...Lucerne, Switzerland...and Munich, Germany.  Stay tuned!

I Heart Bunnies

I love bunnies, yes I do.  I love bunnies, how about YOU?
Even though most of my bunnies come hopping out in the spring, I have some of my bunny collection out and about my cottage the whole year through.

Am I Winning?

I LOVE online auctions!  I have "won" so many wonderful things in the past.  However, I have lost some treasures because they have gone higher than I was willing to spend, had a change of heart, missed the final hour of the auction, etc. etc.
I LOVE the "thrill of the hunt" and an auction just makes that intensify!  LOL

My Heart's All Aflutter...

I adore hearts and have collected many over the years.  One type of heart in particular catches my attention and totally intrigues me.  Not that I believe this inanimate object has any healing power of its own, but  I just adore these milagro hearts! They are simply stunning!
