A Wet World & Other Treats

If I were a duck
This is the pond I'd call home,
Rain showers and all.

~Perfect Pond Circles~
Photo taken yesterday afternoon from our back deck.


Back from NYC.
We had a blast! The bloggers
Meet-up was a hit!

Miss La-La (Mental Pause Mama) and I, along with her kids Augie and the Bird, drove in to meet up with our Daryl and meet (for the very first time) Miss Angie, of Big Hair Envy. Along for the ride was Angie's hubby and beautiful daughter. We all met for dinner at The Red Cat Restaurant and proceeded to spend the next two and a half hours getting to know each other, oh alright we really spent the majority of our time together just laughing ourselves silly! The company, the laughs, the place, the food were all simply wonderful! Thank you, my friends, my time was very well spent!

expect unexpected friendships!


  1. It was a fun time. A little warm, but fun;) Such wonderful company!

  2. Ah the life of a duck...would not like getting my hair wet all the time. Too much natural curl :)

  3. Living vicariously through your bloggy meetups and NYC. I'm so glad you guys had a great time, even though Mama was hot. I loved the pictures MPM posted.

    Why the circles in the pond? Just curious?

  4. What the heck is SkateWing? I just looked at the menu.

  5. I think those turkeys would be on my table and not in my yard if they woke me up at 5.

  6. It's always fun to meet new friends and spend time with old ones. I'm heading over the MPM's to see the pics!

    The pond is beautiful. I'd be spending a lot of time watching it if I had that view!

  7. So glad you had a good time. Laughing is just so much fun!

    WOW thats a lot of rain! Cute ducks though!

  8. So glad y'all had a good time in the big apple! Love your pond circles!

  9. "Hot time in the city"!!!
    I have read that you all had a wonderful time!

    If I were a duck I would live by your pond too. It looks so inviting even in the rain.

  10. I love meet-ups! so glad you had a great time.

  11. My pleasure to share friendship, dinner, drinks, and that photo...

    Wonderful evening ... now lets plan another ...

    And how do those perfect circles come to be ... its like so cool!

  12. What a gorgeous lake and house! I'd like to be a duck there, too! How neat to get to meet a fellow blogger for the first time! I would love to meet any of the bloggers who visit my site. Love the name of the restaurant...has to be good.

  13. Isn't it marvellous to meet like mimded people in the blogosphere and turn them int friends. All the bette for the world at large to knockdown barriers beteen people, the only way to achieve any lasting peace.

  14. I'm so jealous. :)

    LOVE the perfect circles in the pond!

  15. Even w/ the rain, that photo is nice! I really need to get some more pics of the duckies @ my parents farm.
