52 Pictures - Week 18 - Word of Encouragement

I'm including this FB screen shot in my "52 Pictures" because the words are so beautiful to me.  A dear friend (old boyfriend) from college sent me this memory on what would have been my Mom's 77th birthday.  Although I don't remember this memory specifically, I can totally see my mom doing this.  My friend's message couldn't have come at a better time for me.  Truly a Word of encouragement.

52 Pictures - Week 16 - Scooby Defense Initiative

Our SDI project extended a section of our fence 18 inches to keep our boy inside.  Although still anxious at times he's much more comfortable.  We don't worry about him bolting through open doors.   He now has three nicknames which means he's fully ensconced in the family.

52 Pictures - Week 15

Happy Oklahoma Spring!

Taken with my iPhone
Back in early April I took this photo on my way out the door.  I was running late for work, but was taken by the beautiful colors.  Last fall I planted an insane number of tulips.  We even had a few stragglers from last year who came back for a second showing.

52 Pictures - Week 14

Last night we had a friend over for dinner, drinks, and music.  So love hearing live music in our house.  What a treat.  While they played I grabbed my camera and did some more practice with the AV setting.  Here is my favorite of B's mandolin.

Also took photos of the lovely moon last night.  Took awhile to get the camera to see what I was seeing, but I'm pretty happy with these.

P.S.  I showed B the post and he said "It's almost like the Bat Signal!"...  he's rescuing humanity on the xbox, or maybe Mr. Freeze.
