5. Misc. Fun
Wednesday ~

LiL Turtle 

This little guy bout scared me half to death when I saw something move in our pool skimmer as I was emptying it. The ironic thing is I had talked to a lady on my walk that morning who also has a pool and found one at her pool skimmer. I guess all the baby turtles want to go for a pool swim.

Big Turtle

And look at this big snapper! Don’t want to get too close because I heard you need pliers to pull it off if it clamps onto your leg, LOL! Yikes but he is super cool and I’m guessing probably over 100 years old, LOL! Probably not but snapping turtles do live a very long time!


I have never had one of these dragon wing begonias before but it is already almost double the size as when I got it. It is in part shade part sun and it seems to be the perfect mix. These are really cool.


E-Mail Subscription

One last thing, as many of you with the Blogger format may know, the email subscription you subscribe to to get my latest blog posts, Feedburner, is going away at the end of the month. I get so frustrated with all the services that Google is doing away with that make our lives as bloggers and Internet users so much easier. Anyway, my new service is so that is who you will be receiving emails from saying that I have a new post. You may have to confirm the first one. If your already subscribing, hopefully your email was imported over and you'll get them. It’s all so confusing so fingers and toes crossed that it works. This has been one of those technological UGHS!! LOL.

Have a great 
 weekend my Loves!!

  13. I love that pink top you're wearing in those pics with your momma! So beautiful! And yes UGH to the feedburner issues. I haven't even started to look for a backup service, so I'm waaaay behind. I'm so tired of Google canceling and changing everything. I really just need to make the switch to WP but I'm TERRIFIED. So much work. Ughhhh.

  14. Oh my goodness, those turtles, in the wild! Your black dress is gorgeous with these turquoise accessories!
