{ Friday Foto Friends #93 }


Y'all how in the world can it be Friday already.
This has been a very full week for me.
Monday was the eclipse and I took my Momma to the doctor on Tuesday.  I came home and dusted, vacuumed and mopped the house, cleaned the windows on the outside of the sun room, and went to my Mom's and did her push mowing (just around the house, garage and well house). Wednesday was spent running necessary errands then I stayed with the kiddos while Pappy went with our daughter late in the day to pick up her father-in-law from his first aggressive chemo treatment (prayers appreciated for him).  Yesterday was busy, too, and now here we are celebrating Friday Foto Friends!
Whew!
I'm tired just typing all that!
LOL

I didn't get a ton of pics this week but have a few to share.






What an amazing difference a week makes.
These are baby sparrows and their Momma and Daddy are taking really good care of them.
The nest is in one of the ferns on our front porch and they do a lot of fussing at us when we're out there.


This is one of the few fotos I got of the eclipse. I think the images in the upper left corner are reflections on the lens, but I think it's kinda neat. It looks like the crescent that the moon made over the sun during the eclipse.  I actually didn't look at it but just a few moments at a time because even with the eclipse glasses.....
that were over my sunglasses, by the way.....
I was afraid I'd do more damage to my eye.


Our kiddos cat keeps bringing baby snakes onto their front porch.  Does anybody know if this is a rat snake? The ONLY way I got such a close-up picture was because it was dead!



Last Saturday Pappy and I went to a little place in Knoxville called Architectural Antics. Y'all, I wanted one of almost everything this place had. It was ah-mazing! It was so interesting to walk around outside and through the buildings looking at all the goodies.  Here's a link to their Facebook page.....
Want to know what I liked best?
The dogs, Brillo and Bear!
Check them out in their Facebook fotos.

My sweet Friend, Ms. Sylvia, tagged me in this foto on Facebook because she knows how much I love sky pics!  She took this one at FDR State Park in Pine Mountain, GA. Isn't it gorgeous!!!

So, that's that about that, as my Mammie used to say!

HOPE everybody has a great weekend!

  3. Love those baby bird pictures. Who know they could grow that much in just a week. I love that last picture too. So beautiful! However, I could do without the snake. lol

  4. Those baby birds sure grew a lot in a week.
    I thought rat snakes were black but there are probably a lot of different kinds.
