I really did go fishing....

Hi friends,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My daughter & I went to the country to visit Mammaw. We had a nice 3 day weekend, we cooked, cleaned, laughed and cried. Went fishing, killed scorpions and wore no make-up....lol.

Saturday morning we went to the lake early to feed the ducks and go fishing.

Good morning baby ducks...



The genius got lots of nibbles...


I wasn't getting any nibbles....



But then......I got one! ( & let him go )


I adjusted the color on this photo ( ummm... no make up.... a little less scary ) :)

I took this photo later that afternoon....I never get tired of looking at this lake.



The same afternoon we were doing some clean up in front of the house, you have to sweep the porch every day, cobwebs etc....aah the country life. I love it so much. This butterfly danced around my head; I took it as a sign. :)








Isn't it beautiful?



A few more pictures of the property.

The road that leads to the lake



One more picture of the ducks....




I hope you all have a wonderful day; I'm heading to work now. I'll be by to visit you tonight. :)

Hugs~ J.

Hey Jessica!
Thanks for checking on me, girl. I got the interior doors all finished today, but still have not had my shower yet and it's 2pm. Yes, I know! LOL! But anyway...I just had to bust on over and see what you been up to. It looks like a wonderful weekend you all had. That lake is so peaceful and pretty and so is the property. I love butterflies and when they fly around me, I always see it as a sign too....it makes me happy too. Glad you shared your day, and girl...you don't even need makeup! Hope you have a great afternoon!
xoxo,
Queenie
