No Reason and a Plethora of Photos

I've practiced my little speech all morning until I'm sick of myself, so I'm just doing a "ain't no reason" post to get my mind off tonight, take a little break.  I went outside between rain showers and took some photos.  I love how flowers capture the teardrops of sweet rain in their petals.  I will post them in My Photos, but I'll put a couple here:

And check out this budding ranunculus and the hairy leaves.  Looks like my chin.

And finally, shut up!  How can these be for real?  Stunning artistry!

I also noticed the twins left behind some Easter remnants:

And I enjoyed a bowl of my ham and vegie soup.  I always make enough soup for a family of 27.  I can't help myself.  So Mister took half of it over to my friend, Shirley, where it was much appreciated.  She said, before she tasted it.  It's hard to adequately spice such a big pot of soup, so I tried something new this time.  I added a packet of Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix.  Uh, huh!  Oh, yeah!  Just the ticket!

I'm happy to welcome Jeanne who has joined as a follower!  And, oh, look, after I posted, I noticed that Sally B popped on as a follower, too!  Thank you, thank you ~ I appreciate that very much!

No one caught the mistyped word yesterday.  It was "sentitment."  Hard to catch that one, huh?!  I should start an Old Typist's Dictionary of New Words.  And before someone asks, "Grandma, have you heard about 'spell check'?" - yes, I have heard about spell check, smarty pants.  I just think it's sort of fun not to use it.  Wait 'til you try tryping at this age.  See what I mean?

Please enjoy ~ and, as always, thank you for stopping by!   Special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower or leave me a comment!
