The String

I was looking out the front door the other day and noticed a string hanging from the oak tree by the driveway.

At first I wasn’t sure what I was seeing so I had to take a closer look and you know I had to go get the rabbit. LOL

You know after all of the snake business that’s been going on around here I’m a little leary when something out of the ordinary appears.

But I followed the string up through the tree to see where it went.

Just as I suspected it led to a birdnest.

The more I thought about it the funnier it got. I would have loved to have seen that bird flying through the air with that 4′ piece of string. And had the rabbit handy to record it of course.

Here’s a picture of the string and because it’s hard to see I have drawn a line to show the string from the nest to the end of the string.

I’ll tell you these critters around here never cease to keep me entertained. 😆

Happy Thursday!

TFP 😉 

I Am Not Alone

I’m sure ya’ll have figured out by now how I like to take pictures of critters.


Big and small.


Since starting this blog, I have become addicted to photography.


And the blog for that matter.


I know I’m not alone.


Many of you have admitted your addictions, too.

I think capturing the perfect bumble bee picture is my greatest challenge.


Quite photogenic aren’t they?

Can You Relate?

We have been gone, camping, four of the last five weekends.

To Charleston, SC, the first two weekends, and the week in between.

The third, I had to work, it was my Saturday.

The last two, at Lake Wateree, SC.

This coming Saturday, is my Saturday to work, again.

I work all day. When I get home the last thing I want to do is more work!

I have a yard that needs mowing.

A kitchen that needs cleaning.

Floors that need a little more than a sweeping.

Clothes to wash.

Things need putting in their place.

Food to cook. Critters to feed. Grocery, school supply and clothing shopping to do.

And everything else that needs doing around a busy household.

And when I get done with that…

I’ve gotta clean the camper….and get it ready for next time.

When the house gets messy, I get messy!

I go to bed every night, knowing there is more to be done. I think my subconscious is still trying to clean while I sleep.

The Captain helps when he can. He works a lot of hours, so his help time is limited.

Boo helps some, too.

Just when I think I’m getting caught up, off we go again. It awaits my return. Darn it! And then there’s the mess that comes back with me.

So I start over, again.

And then there’s the matter of…

I make a mess cleaning up another mess. It drives me mad! I hate having to do things over!!!

I want to do whatever “it” is and get it done.

Can you relate?

What’s keeping you so busy, you can’t keep up with the everyday stuff?




 C’mon, leave me a comment! Tell me you can relate! Tell me one day it’ll all get done!

But, don’t tell me it’ll never get done. I don’t think I could handle it. 



Don’t get me wrong! I am not complaining!

I enjoy going camping! I enjoy the time away. I just get frustrated when I come home and there is so much to do.

I am thankful, that I am able to go, there may come a time when I am not.

And when and if that day comes, I will sit on my porch and enjoy the memories I’ve made!
