Tweet, Quack, Cluck & Cock-a-Doodle-Doo!

Today was a perfectly beautiful, calm ,warm Summer day.
After heeding a friends advice about letting our 2 ducks free from the chicken house yesterday, I again listened to his words of wisdom today about letting the chickens out. We have had these 13 chickens cooped up in an old garden shed ... with good intentions of getting an outdoor run built, but no time. So today, I opened the door and chased them all out.
I also dug a hole big enough to set a water tank down into the ground for the ducks to get in and out of. They were happy. So was the dog.
Later in the afternoon Kaila and I lounged in the hammock under our covered porch and watched our baby barn swallows in their nest, mouths wide open waiting for dinner.

I would like to "clean up" Kaila's face in this picture, does anyone know if there's a way to do that in Elements?

Totally Taboo Tuesday!

Have you ever wondered if a stinky burp still stinks if you let it out your nose instead of your mouth?

Ever farted only to find out it wasn't a fart?

Ever walked into your bathroom to discover this... ?

NO?!? You mean it's just ME???


Well regardless of whether or not these or other "taboo" things come up for the rest of you, I thought it would be fun to try this on my blog. Add your comments here to share your Totally Taboo Tuesday thoughts/questions/incidents!

An afternoon at Lake Mac

Not ME Monday!

This is not the lamest Not Me Monday post ever... Because I did not lie awake into the wee hours of the morning trying to figure out what I could post.... and I definitely did not forget the one thing I did think up! So, here I am to say ... NOT ME!!! :)

Now it's your turn, post your :Not Me's: under the comments section of this post & share in the fun!

Also, hop on over to MckMama's blog and check out all the Not-Me-ing over there ... :)

EDITED TO ADD : I Remembered the one thing!!! :)

Yesterday while at the lake .... I totally did not decide to skip the swim diaper for my 2 year old, thinking, something along the lines of - It's the lake, how bad could it be?? I did not then, 10 minutes later, squeeze her bottom and feel my fingers squish into something other than her flesh! And I absolutely did not, and would NEVER even think about burying the poo in the sand and swishing her swimsuit around in the lake! And to boot- I did not allow my family to continue swimming in the same spot, thinking all the while- I hope we don't all get Cryptosporidium! And I did not not think that because I stayed up watching "Monsters Inside Me" on Animal Planet the other day!
