A Little Bit of This and That
I manned the "Making Bubbles" station for a short while. It's harder than you might think to create these huge bubbles!!
I grew up with the tradition of coloring Easter Eggs the evening before Easter and I still continue this tradition most years even though I have no children around to help me color them. It's fun and I absolutely love the pretty colors! I usually only color about four eggs. We can't use up more than that.
And speaking of pretty colors, how gorgeous are the colors on these shoes?! The Mr. went shoe shopping the other day and while he shopped, I wandered around the store and snapped photos of unique shoes for the blog. I definitely do not need more shoes at this time, so this was a fun way to spend my time. These shoes by L'Artiste are, as their name suggests, quite artistic!
Another colorful pair of L'Artiste shoes. I don't believe I have heard of this brand before. The shoes are certainly pretty, although I didn't try them on to see how comfortable they are.
When I saw this pair, I actually thought they reminded me of a cow! I actually like these, although I can't wear the thong style as it hurts me between my toes. Somewhat limiting on many summer styles, but I have never been able to wear thong style sandals even as a child.
And, oh my, aren't the heels on these shoes fancy?! The block heel would give extra support but the pointed toe is a deal breaker for me, I'm afraid. I don't like my toes to be cramped. Oh well! On to something else.
We've had several families of bears visiting our backyard this Spring. All were mamas bringing their babies to visit. This mama brought her yearling cubs by.
Here's a close-up of the mama of the yearlings. We probably saw her as a little cub in our yard years ago.
You can see mama better here in this picture. We fear for the safety of these bear families. They have passed a law here in NC about allowing hunting now in bear sanctuaries. We are not in favor of this law but it passed anyway and that puts the lives of these gorgeous animals in danger! To be able to hunt in an animal sanctuary is unfathomable in my opinion!!
And, finally, here is a recent meal that I cooked for The Mr. and I to enjoy. Chicken tenders sauteed in a skillet and then cooked until done in a mushroom sauce served over rice with a side salad. This made a tasty meal for us.
