Rabbits, And Frogs, And Rain. Oh My!!'s your Saturday going?!...Did you visit the relatives?!...Get lots of weekend errands done?!...Dig around in the garden?!...Go for a walk in the park?!...Sit and read a book?...Or are you watching tennis, like me?! :-) 
      Today is semi-finals day at the Internationali BNL D'Italia tournament in Rome Italy. SPOILER ALERT: Errani already whooped Jankovic, and Djokovic barely eeked out the win against Raonic!...Right now Serena Williams is in the second set with Ivanovic...and she's losing!...But she won the first set, so I think we're going three! :-) YAY!!
      Wanna know what's going on around here?! ^_^ Well, we had tons of rain this morning...but now the sun is shining pretty!! :-) The hummingbirds are humming!...back and forth to the feeder...And we're getting 'guests', one that look like this cute little fella below, visiting the backyard!...

      Actually, not just the back yard! :-] Case in point, I saw a huge...HUGE!...bunny rabbit, hopping across the backyard like she was looking for some lost carrots that she buried, or something. (I've seen her in the backyard before, but she wasn't this big then! O_O)
      Then hubby came in the house and said he just saw a baby bunny rabbit hopping across the front driveway...and two and two added up!...I think 'Big Ole Mama Rabbit' must've lost track of 'junior', and was trying to tack his scent through the yard! :-]
      Hubby didn't hang around to see which way 'junior' went, and 'Mama' disappeared on me too! So hopefully she finds him before he gets himself into trouble. O_O You know how 'young'uns' can be sometimes! ^_^

      Then...we got another little visitor to the backyard. One that looked sorta like this cute little fellow!...

      I don't know 'what' he was looking for! :-)) Maybe the ponds in the backyard...from all the rain...confused him! ^_^ That could happen!! LOL...All that rain confused me too! :-) But it didn't send me hopping across the backyard. I just rested! LOL...

      So, there you are!...Rabbits, frogs, and rain! :-) ...

      Oh Yeah! I got a photo...sorta kinda...of our frog visitor. :-) ...

      I Know, I Know!! :-)) Stop laughing at my picture-taking!...or should I say 'HUBBY'S' picture-taking!! LOL

      Okay, off to finish crocheting the other baby blanket. It's blue!! :-) Y'all have a good rest of the day! ♥


You teeter totter, in the middle,
Lean a little, OOPS! You're off!
Now you know that you're not balanced,
and you hope the ground is soft.

It's not easy to achieve,
and once you have it, to maintain.
In almost every part of life
our balance is so hard to gain.

You have to balance your emotions,
how you eat, and how you spend.
And when you're balancing your checkbook,
try to keep a level grin.

Staying somewhere in the middle
takes a conscious, careful touch,
because it doesn't take a lot
to go from balanced to 'too much'!

So try to keep a balanced eye,
 a balanced plate, and balanced life.
Keep your feelings all in check,
and minimize the stress and strife.

And don't compare your sense of balance
 to your neighbor''re alone.
Because your neighbor's also trying
to get some balance of his own!


  1. The crochet items are so cute! Love the frogs! We have our fair share of toads and frogs around here. They are nasty to the tastebuds of cats and dogs so the only predator is the car...I've squished a few....yucky! Anyway, the rain here finally stopped today. It was sunny and lovely..chilly but I'll take that with the dry! Have a good week!

    1. Thanks, Yaya! I'm so glad you like them! :-] ... And WOW! WATCH OUT FROGS!!! LOL...Ours don't hang around driveways too much. They like the backyard too much, I think. ^_^ Have a good week!! ♥
