Junie's in the meadow (Mother's Day)

~~~
Junie's in the meadow... 
(ha! Where are the sheep, then?) and the cows are in the corn!

Being silly...but-seriously, I DO love my meadow flowers!!

This was taken today before Charles and I went out for an early dinner at Inverness-"Stumpknockers" catfish restaurant. We had a lovely day!

Happy New Year- ~~food for good luck in the new year

June Kellum
 
(posted on my Face Book page)
This is our traditional meal for the New Year. It's supposed to bring good luck to those who eat it, for the new year ahead! We do this every January 1st!! Who knows where we might be if we hadn't had this last Jan 1st! :) ... and I'm expecting great things for 2013!! "Blackeyed peas, cooked with hog jawl...some fried as bacon, too...Also mustard and turnip greens...cornbread. We also cooked a pork roast. For good measure and just because I like it-I have a cup of buttermilk with the hot cornbread crumbled in it! :)

Good southern chow but I'm not so sure about the 'good luck' part! ;)

Sad ending ....

 
 
 *This is from my FB page today, so I will put it here also*
 
 
( my blog, "Our Place")
http://ourplace-junierose2005.blogspot.com/2012/06/camera-critters-june-2-2012-april-in.html

~~a sad-and expensive end to 2012 for us...last night-just after dark- we got a call that one of our young 'heifers' had gotten out of our back pa
sture and got hit by a car and killed! A young girl was driving alone, but, thankfully, was not hurt. Charles went over there-(one street over)-At best we will be out the cost of the young cow...which would have been worth around $700.00 presently) Hopefully, the girl's insurance will cover her damages to her car! (I sure hope so because we can't afford another big bill to pay)

It was a freak thing to happen...sometimes young cows manage to get out, in spite of our best efforts to keep the fences in good shape!...The animal control people were there and Charles was not held responsible for this.

Apart from the $$ part, I am very sad about the loss of this beautiful little cow. She was one of the prettiest ones we've had.

This is a picture of "April" when she was just a day or so old, with her mom, Cloud.

The link to my blog shows a more recent pic of her.

~And here's Alli~


 
~And here's Alli~
 
 
...and here is my only girl grand baby, Alli, with her big brothers, Dan and Brian! This was her first Christmas. She would have her 1st birthday the day after Christmas.
 (and now she's almost 22!!)

:) I wanted to name our almost Christmas babe, "Merry Noel," but Tina didn't go along with that! lol...
 
 Alli has said she's glad her mom didn't let me name her that- Haha... She likes her name Allison Brooke better! ;)

(...but she's known, far and wide, as just "Alli!")

"The Mad Hatter"-from Face Book

 (posted on my Face Book page today)
 
June Kellum
 
 















My granddaughter, Alli, was home for a couple days. She and her mom were working on her costume for a Halloween/masquerade-party/dance at college.

She's very much into Swing Dancing and the ones in charge of the dances sponsor this event
each year for Halloween. The theme this year is "Alice In Wonderland," and the guests were asked to dress as characters from that Tale! Alli chose "The Mad Hatter" as the character she would be.
(partly because she's such a HAT person, anyway!!) :)

Alli and her mom did a great job creating this costume-IMHO- especially as they did most of it while they were babysitting Drakey for Chris, Joy and I to go to that concert Wednesday night!

My Alli is so cool!!

We were invited to a cook-out and fireworks display at our friends, Ted and Sandy's, place this evening!

Just about time to go it turned stormy and it absolutely poured rain. I was almost sure the fire display wouldn't be possible so I decided not to bother with my camera.
 
 It did stop, tho, and we were able to see the fireworks, after all! But I missed getting any pics!

These were made just before we left home ...Charles and me and the hard rainfall from our front door!

Hope you've all had a good day!

***





***

This was 'Drake's' first visit to his great Aunt Joy's house.My sis and her husband, Mike,  had invited us all over for an excellent meal on Memorial Day.


Baby Drake was dressed in a cute and colorful outfit including these snazzy little red socks/booties that look like sneakers!


Love your 'laid back' attitude, Drake!!

:)



...But, what safer or better place to be than in your 'Gabbo's' arms?




Love,
Ginga

This is Daniella, a little  friend of ours who came to visit  around Easter time!


She brought me some Easter  treats -the little baskets and eggs filled with candy! 


The best treat of all was seeing that pretty little girl,  in her cute pink outfit and and that curly hair!

























Isn't her hair just gorgeous?

Mellow Yellow Monday-(For April 9, 2012)

~~



~~

Here are some Mellow Yellow scenes from our Easter Day at our house.

~

These little ducks were used in decorating for a baby shower last week, for my daughter-in-law,Joy.

Our new grandson's name will be "Drake."


The little ducks fit in fine in our Easter and spring celebrating, too.



More bits of yellow in our Easter decorating...


These 3 little chicks have been around for a LONG time. I bought them when my 3 kids were young, and they (my kids) are now 'middle age...5o-ish!!'  I'm one who keeps stuff forever. 
 :)
 

The bowl in front of this baked ham holds fresh pineapple-both were delicious!



Love,
Junie

We'll have the family here tomorrow-one more time! For this I am thankful!

Happy Easter to all my family and friends!

A celebration! (family interest)



Happy Birthday, Daniel!

Today we had an early celebration for our oldest grandson's birthday! We had to do it early because his sister, Alli, had to go back to Orlando to resume her studies at college and wouldn't be able to get back on his actual birthday. (Mar 16th)


Only Dan and his bro and sis and mom...Charles and me and Joy were here.

Tina had told me not to do anything, that she would take care of all of it! 

(which was fine with me because I'm not feeling my best these days-especially with the finger still pretty much useless)

 She ordered Pizzas from "Five Star." They were super good, especially the fresh veggie one!

Here are some pics of us, with Dan opening his gifts!

We enjoyed having the kids here for awhile!

~~

























Tina- daughter
Dan- grandson-birthday boy
Brian- grandson
Alli- granddaughter
Joy- daughter-in-law
