WWC 04-29-08; One and Water

Howdy Y'all! Quickly I must upload my WWC pictures. Soon it will be time to pick up the kiddos. I feel that what I got done today (grocery shopping, bank deposit, hair cut) has left me now at 2:07 pm with not half my list done for the day.

So, we will see how quickly I can check stuff off "with the kiddos" home. Here we go for WWC. I played this week with no slacking!

Hope ya' like what I got! One blinking arrow (I fear this thing).

One boy, one girl, one jeep ride....

One big beautifully happy smile!!!

One big, black, furry spider on my window (he was on the outside....I'm not that brave.)

Hey? What's this? One tiny lady bug (they aren't all red, you know). At first? Something was crawling on me and I immediately flicked it away in fear. Then, I saw what it was and I had to nurse him out of shock before releasing him outside. Lady bugs are very "beneficial" in a crop field. They eat a lot of the sucky pestulent bugs.

Uh-oh. Some one "missed one" on his home work.

You will never beleive this one. Have you ever seen a Hummingbird stop...hovering and humming?

Well, this guy was flying and hovering around outside the window one moment and suddenly down he went. He's actually sitting on his tail. I don't know if he actually hit the window and sat here in shock for a minute himself....or if he truly just wanted a break. I mean, that's gotta' get really tiring humming around all day like that.

Above, boiling water. Below, water running from my cool faucet into the "Queen of Sheba" tub.

Here's a side view.....

(Oops. Water wasted while taking these pictures.)

The bathroom sink faucet wanted a showing too. Aren't these the coolest????

It's raining water in my shower!

And, last....but, most importantly. Rain water, in the field. Yes. We got 1 1/2 inches early Saturday morning (4:am with lots of thunder and lightening). Then we got a few extra showers on Sunday!!

Good thing. The cotton was startin' to get a little thirsty!!!

Happy Tuesday!!

I want your bathroom fixtures, those are beautiful! I think you are right, the hummingbird must have hit the window. Great shots - I am glad you helped the ladybug recover.

Krishna said...

I was wondering where you were. i know yall are thankful for rain.

That really is one cool looking faucet you got there. I just got plain old boring ones. And, you did the shower nozzle thing too? Great minds, huh?

And, hey - you got ladybug material for the next PFC right there! ;)

Tink said...

I have NEVER seen a hummingbird that wasn't in flight! Great use of the words this week girl. I hope the blinking light on your VM was good news and not bad. :)

I don't know why but as soon as I saw the kids in the little jeep I though Barbie and Ken. So cute!

Karen said...

Oh, can I come to your house and play in your bathroom? It looks like a spa in there! Gorgeous!
And I think you are the only one (at least so far) to have done boiling water. Nice!

Jay said...

I'm gonna jump on the "cool bathroom fixtures" bandwagon!

Great pics. Except that furry spider. *shudder* I don't like spiders anymore than I do snakes.

I've never seen a Hummingbird resting either. That's probably a more amazing pic than capturing them in flight. ;-)

Um, can I come to your house and use your bathroom? Queen of Sheba tub, beautiful shower, lovely sink faucet... (suddenly, I feel like Madame Blueberry from Veggie Tales)

I've seen a hummingbird rest on a branch before, but never on its tail! Weird. Hope it flew away okay.

Glad you got your rain. We did, too! I love wild weather (but not tornadoes or hurricanes).
