Sunday Stills ~Yellow

It's that time of the week again. For anyone interested in joining along Ed's Sunday Still challenge please go over and visit. It has been a lot of fun !

Maine Man found the little bugger above in the middle of the road. It took residence in the barn for a few days in the kids catch & release tank, then into the back pond. In the 2 1/2 years that we have lived here I've only seen one turtle. It was a huge snapper by the duck pond and it was gone when I returned with my camera. I love having fresh cut flowers overflowing in canning jars and/or vases throughout the house. That is exactly what I did with those yellow blossoms. Today the kids and I went unintentional lawn saling. On the way to the grain store we came across some bargains. 10 glass vases for $1.00, a handful of spice jars for 10 cents. The kids bought a double seated wooden swing with intentions of hanging from a tree. I think it will serve us well by the pond. Today I constructed a trellis for our peas out of some netting I bought at a lawn sale last year for a quarter. MM said "what are you going to do with that?" Ha...it took me a year but I found a use. I will post a picture as soon as I take one. It took me nearly 3 hours to construct and a nearly severed thumb to complete but by geesh I did it! I am not handy by nature that's FOR sure, unlike Maine Man. There is not a thing that man can't fix or do. Joking about the severity of my finger, just a nasty cut from a hand saw. Probably a good thing I wasn't able to start the chainsaw.
I know they are not yellow but they just the cutest creatures! Their Momma had 12 kits. I was surprised because it was her first litter. 2 did not survive, we bottle fed them for a few days and kept them on a heating pad in the house. We did our best.
As with everyone this time of year life has been so busy. Days are not long enough to complete the chores at hand. Most days I am able to roll with it but some days I am simply overwhelmed. The kids annual birthday party is next Saturday and we will be having a pig roast for my brother's 40th at the end of next month. So if your wondering where I am I'm either in the garden or cleaning up my messy barn. :)

Great pictures! I love the bright yellow flowers against the blue sky. Like you, I love to pick any flower and fill vases in my apartment. It just cheers up the place!

I always stop and pick up turtles along the road. I hate to see them smashed and they are so silly!

Anyhow, cool pics!

Kelly said...

That turtle sure doesn't look thrilled to have his photo taken...and you are correct, those bunnies are too cute!

Hi!

You asked about my special font on my blog and how I did it.

It's called Segoe Print and once I found the font I had to go into my blog's layout area and click on Edit HTML and then change all the fonts to Segoe Print. A little (well, a lot) time consuming, but fairly easy to do.

Have fun and I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday.

Great idea with the turtle, though the unyellow bunnies are probably my fav.

Those are the cutest things...ever. The bunnies not the turtle, although he's pretty cute too.

Thanks for all your comments. I appreciate all your feedback!

We found a turtle just like yours last week in the road. He stopped at a couple of garage sales with us, then we took him to our pond. I hope he sticks around.
