Looks like Garden Girl has jumped right
into the Halloween decorating, doesn't it?
I'm going to have to have a talk with her.
It is still officially summer for one more week!
Look at her smile...I bet that web tickles!

Samsung Galaxy Note8

I got a new toy!
The camera makes me forget my Nikon.
It opens with my iris or fingerprint scan.
And I finally have enough memory.
And look...it's orchid gray.
I think they did that just for me!

American Redstart

I had a new little bird in my yard today!
This sweet little thing (smaller than a sparrow!)
was flitting around the trees looking for insects
instead of eating from the feeders.
After some investigating online, I discovered
she's an American Restart.
Her male counterpart is black with bright
orange flashes.  How very fun!
First warbler of any kind here at
my home sweet home!

Tunes For Toddlers

This post is for Nancy Clemens, who contacted me
on Google+ about my little children's poetry book
I had when I was young.  I had posted about one of
the poems years ago and she found it as she was
looking for the book.  Turns out she had it when she
was young, too!

So, Nancy...here it is.  Sorry I don't have the cover
any longer but I think you'll have fun remembering
the pages.  Hope your mom enjoys it, too!

This was one of my favorite books!
I can remember studying all the illustrations until
I knew every detail.  And I still know all those
little poems from memory!
In fact, as I look at it now, I wonder if it didn't have
a big influence on me.  I'm still in love with snow,
kittens, the moon, clouds, stars, birds and ice cream!

We all have our little quirks, don't we?
Here's one of mine.
I can only eat cottage cheese with a fork.
It's just a little too gross with a spoon. haha.
OK, your turn.
Confess a little quirk you have....
