I haven't done Flower Friday in a while but hopefully Mom won't be taking any more vacations from my blog. I've been thinking about demoting her lately.
Here is a collage of rose photos Mom took last week at our neighbors house.
You guys know Twinkie, right? And you guys know she did a lot of work getting GABE up and running for all of us to enjoy, right? During GABE I won 2 of the drawings. You can see my goody bag I received from Dory here. Well, the other thing I won was a painting from The Musketeers. I know I told you that at some point in the past and wanted you to be able to see the painting. Since I already have a painting from Cloud's Mom, Kathleen (whose blog was recently selected as a Blog of Note) I decided to let Twinkie know how much I appreciated all her work and asked The Musketeers if I could have a photo of her painted. Unless you have one of these types of portraits or have seen one you just don't understand how special they are. It is kind of a once in a lifetime experience the first time you see it. A couple of weeks ago, Twinkie's painting arrived and Mom and I sent it to her. She posted it in her Dear Twinkie post last week and I love the photo of Twinkie and the painting together and wanted to show it to you guys in case you haven't seen it.
Isn't that the cutest thing ever?
I want to say a HUGE thank you to The Musketeers for letting me pass the joy on to a special furiend of mine.
One evening last week, Mom was over at Uncle David's and Aunt Shannon's house with family. There was a big thunderstorm and it got really dark out. Then the sun came back out ant there was the most beautiful rainbow. Mom said the colors were more vibrant than she has ever seen in a rainbow and the pictures don't do it justice. She said it looked like you could just reach out and grab it because it was so close. If you look carefully, you will see it was a double rainbow.
And, Uncle David and Aunt Shannon found out that they are expecting a baby girl that day too! Very exciting!
Have a great weekend!
