    Donna Lynn (need to know your fav color...)

  10. Deena,

    Oh, the turkeys. I love them and would enjoy seeing them up close. She is beautiful. You must have some good snacks in your yard.

    Love all the photos. I always enjoy visiting with you. Sorry I am so late getting here, but joys abound here and at the Singing Woods blog.

    My joys:

    Hearing from YOU!
    Grandsons who phone and say bye bye, love you.
    Tulips that are blooming in my flower garden.
    Meeko and his antics.
    God's love.

    Take care and so glad you are feeling better.


  11. PS. Drop over to my blog and pick up a little something I'm giving out to all my blogging friends.

  12. I love your new fountain. I'll be posting a fountain story sometime soon.

    I'm so happy you had so much joy today. :)

  13. So glad you are happy! My fav photo is the one out your window of the owl box with the bare tree branches that will soon be green but aren't yet. Such promise!

    My joys are daffodils and doggies.

  14. Knowing that you're feeling better is a joy. You tell us not to worry when you're not posting, but (speaking for myself) we do, anyway.

  19. Thank you for the AWESOME award...you are the awesomest though....LOL!!

  20. Love the photos! So glad you are feeling better!!!! (PS-I was disappointed in the results of Idol, too--couldn't understand it, but I guess at least some of the time, it's more about popularity with the voters, instead of talent.) Have a wonderful, wonderful day!

    You are a "joy" to read!♥

  23. Hi Deena,

    We enjoy the wild turkeys around our house, too. Sometimes we see as many as 20 all at one time.

    I'm glad you are feeling better.

    Love and Prayers,

  24. Deena love the cherry blossom.
    Take care

  25. Hi Deena! You did it and you didnt even mean to! Putting the snapshot of Rich out by the owl box gives great refrence to how HUGE it is! Otherwise~ looks like any teensy birdhouse!! Honestly, one of my JOYS today, reading your blog and 'seeing' you in such GOODE SPIRITS! WOO HOOOOOOO IM so glad youre feeling better!

  26. Deena, you're some kind of blessing!! Never been happier!! Love that. Love you. Had to put things into perspective. Ive been feeling a bit sad today but knowing that you've never been happier- now as you are struggling with cancer, it inspires me. Thank you! Blessings dear one... Polly

  27. Our lawn will be mowed the second time already. Everything is lush and bright greens. Our lilac bush is in bloom. Air conditioning has been on. Everyone is nesting in every bird house available. My favorite every year is the robin that makes a nest outside our bedroom window under the eve on the curve of the rain gutter. Every year I am amazed through some of the worst spring winds and storms. I myself wake in the night afraid of the strong lightning and rains, then I peek to see if she is alright and there she is snuggled in and just "being a mother" not even minding all the thunder. I have gotten a lot of strength from the robins who choose our home as their own. I always save their nests when the season has passed. Lots to learn from nature as you already know.
    Thanks for sharing your beauty.

  28. What wonderful pictures, I love coming to your blog. And the picture of your husband just knowing you were going to click that camera is hysterical! I have one of my Mom like that as she was saying *you better not be putting any pictures of me on your blog!!!! lol

  29. I wish for you today......... HUMMING BIRDS!!!!!!!

    My joys

    I worked in my yard 4 hours yesterday and no pain!!!

    I worked in my shop today and
    no pain!!!!

    I watched my 88 year old Mother outside watering her little garden! It was a sight!!

    I have ONE peonie bloom!!! Yeah... Maybe next year I will have two!!!

    I have Jesus and He loved being outside yesterday....... We talked...

  30. Hi sweet Deena
    Just wanted to say hello. I hope you are having a great week!!!

  31. We just bought the exact same fountain Deena - and thank goodness it's working well. It replaces a similar one which died - and I do love to hear the water trickling.

    Great bird pics - and you the cutest 'bird' of all, but watch out for those Swiffers - I tripped over mine and almost broke my neck!!

    Glad you and Rich are enjoying life in the singing woods - my love and prayers go out to you as each day brings you closer to better health.

  32. Hi Deena...Love your pics...beautiful blossoms. Spring is here! Hooray!
    So glad you are feeling better and enjoying the beauty you have around you.

    Wishing you joy!
    Hugs, Nancy

  33. My joys today:

    bike riding (as I was riding this morning, I couldn't help but sing out loud "Oh what a beautiful morning"

    chips and salsa

    a clean house

    listening to a good book on tape

    getting back on track with my exercise
