"Outdoor Wednesday"

Here we are again on "Outdoor Wednesday". If you would like to know about "Outdoor Wednesday"....Click on the picture above to "Outdoor Wednesday" ~ we post something about outside. Thank you Susan for presenting this event. I have really enjoyed reading everone post and also meeting new friends.
I have plan to tell ya'll about my favorite place in the summer...but decided I will post it next week. I wanted to share about what I did yesterday. Yesterday was a beautiful day....It was partly cloudy, breezy,and 74 degrees. Yes it was....I thought about ya'll who are in the cold/wintry storm. That I wish ya'll could have been with me to enjoy the sunshine/warm weather. It was beautiful to go play outside or enjoy sitting on the porch. Well...after our prayer meeting at the church yesterday morning. We decided to go eat lunch first...then go see our homebound members at the nursing home. We first saw Ms Tressie....she is always happy and smiling. We told her that it was so pretty and nice outside...soooo she wanted to go out. We took her out on the porch....and we sat out on the rocking chair......Enjoying the beautiful yard. We all was just enjoying every minute of it because today was going to be in the 40s. We have had crazy weather here. A pretty yard in front of us....while we were sitting on the porch and rocking in the rocking chair. It's so peaceful there. Beautiful place and people was so nice and friendly. I don't usually like to go to the nursing just make me sad...but this one...was a great place..
Ms. Tressie is sitting down in her wheelchair....Ms. Elizabeth on the left side and I'm on the right.(bad hair day) LOL
Ms Tressie love to wear hats...she is so Cute in hats.
Dee (my true friend) is sitting behind me...we looks happy...LOL I wonder why?.....It's a Beautiful day! So...we had to take Ms Tressie back to her room and went to visit.....Ms JeanetteMs Jeanette is bed ridden. Look at her....she is smiling like a sunshine. She sooo sweet. ..
Had a great day with Ms Tressie and Ms Jeanette.Got home about 2:30....decide to prune my roses....while it was still warm. And I found a bud on the rose bush that on my porch in the pot. The roses is thinking it Spring is I said...the weather been crazy! would be 70s one day and the next it would be in 30 and 40. No wonder the roses trying to bud. It don't know what to do...Oh my...maybe it will be okay. After I got through playing in the yard...I sat on my bench to enjoy hearing the birds singing....then I heard ducks quackling- quack in the pond.......across the street at my neighbor.
I'm sitting on my porch on the bench...and looking straight ahead....and this is what I'm seeing...It's just beautiful and peaceful. Look at the reflextion on the's just beautiful. Well....I don't see them in the pond.....can't see well anyway. But I keep hearing them playing and quackling - quack. They are sooo cute. One day I'll go over there and take their pictures. Then I look at the was so pretty to me....the sun peeping out of the cloud and I knew that the storm is coming....last night it started to rain..and turning cold. So long the beautiful day was a memory....but one day Spring will be here. I hope I didn't bored ya'll. I hope ya'll enjoyed it.
