Fabulous Morning

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I was up early. Bill forgot his keys and was gently knocking on the window to ask for them. 🙂
It was a foggy start for him this morning, but he said it would not be a problem for his drive to Schenectady, NY.
I figured I was up so I made breakfast and became absorbed by my newspaper. The Coast Guard Helicopter was crusing over the Sakonnet River yesterday. I was looking to see if they were looking for anything in particular.
At around 6:15 I looked up from the paper and saw this sight!

Well! I had to grab the camera and see what I could record.
As I was getting the camera in focus, a fox appeared in the yard across the street. Now, I had Hersh all primed to go for a ‘photo session’ and there was a potential for desaster right in the yard! Before I could gather my thoughts and focus the camera the fox turned around and slipped back over the wall!
So, cautiously, Hersh and I left the house. ( I was the cautious one! LOL)
Hersh climbed right up Christine’s front deck steps and waited at her door as I went around to the bay and took this photo.

No fox around, I collected Hershey and headed to the east side of the point and snapped another early morning photo.

Took a long shot at that sweet cottage with the view:

A quick photo of my daffodils and I was done. 🙂

It was so summery that we just had to put the top down.

And then we were off to Baby’s r Us to check out car seats, strollers, and baby cribs. Kim and Anne had a crib picked out that they wanted to show off.
It was agreed! It is a beauty!

THE SUN CAME OUT ! ! ! ! !

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

It hasn’t been 40 days or anything, but I’m feelling a strong empathy for Noah!
So! out to the yard I did go!
Wanted to see how the crocus were faring, and to see if anything else was on it’s way toward spring finery.

The forsythia is starting to get ready to bloom.
The Bleeding Heart is showing it’s purple baby leaves above ground. The OxEye plants are leafing out. (won’t see blooms until September)
And a few daffodils are still doing their best to cheer me up !

The world is a wonderful place with sunshine. 🙂

It’s Not Raining Rain

Monday, April 16th, 2007

You know,
it’s raining
vi–o–lets!

It might be hard to see here, but the Mount Hope Bay came up onto Anthony Road at high tide this morning around 7:30 — 8:00. The water went around the corner you see in this photo.
Fortunatley, it rose after Bill left for work and it receeded before Chris and I had to go to work!
The sump pump did a fabulous job keeping the basement dry (so to speak)during the Nor’Easter we had last night and early this morning. 🙂
OH! How that wind did blow! A tough sleeping night.
