Grandma Barb’s This and That

Hey, where's our lunch?

 I took this picture last June of two Baby Robins sitting at the table in my back yard.  Their mama did finally come with lunch but I didn't get her picture.

If you want to see Baby Robins from the time they are eggs until they leave the nest click here.
This is really cute.  I hope you enjoy it.
A little update on my flooded basement.  A week after the flood  there is still a big mess.  The wet stuff  has been hauled up to the dumpster, but I have a lot more to go through and organize.  While I have the dumpster, I might as well clean out the garage too.  This is going to take forever, because apparently I have become a hoarder.  At least that's what my kids say.  They don't see the potential in all the junk.  :0)

Thanks for all your kind comments and have a great weekend everyone!  Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers.

Until next time.

That is a great picture, as is the caption you've given it, Barb. It sounds like you've been very busy with the basement. I should borrow some of your inspiration and start tackling mine!

Great photo of the little ones. Your kids would call me a hoarder too, but MY kids had better be careful what they say because some of the stuff I'm hoarding is theirs! They seem to think my basement is a storage facility. lol! Hope you had a nice Mother's Day, have a good week!

Hi Barb, Oh what sweetness in the birds. Just love seeing the growing process. We've had a cardinal family in my rose arch this season. They have worked so hard to raise the little birdies but one fell out of the nest and died. We felt so bad. Two left but they are out of the nest too while both parents try to feed them. We have to watch our Miss Beazy close so she does not go after the babies. She is a bird dog and doing what nature calls her to do.

So sorry to hear about your flooded basement. We have been there in our Indiana home. I know the process of clean up takes time especially when you go through everything.

Hope you enjoyed a nice Mother's Day.
Don't work too hard.
Big hugs, Celestina Marie

I happy to hear you're getting things organized. Sounds like you have your hands full, but I'm sure you're snapping up pictures to show off as you clean up! :-) I hope you didn't have to work too hard on Mother's Day. Take care.

I can understand how long it must take to clean out a basement. My basement looks similar to a hoarder, too. I am really getting tired of it and want to throw it all away and start fresh!

I know you will be so happy when it's all done.
