It's Going To Be A Great Weekend!

I'm on the road again, heading to see my daughters Jessi & Erin and my awesome grandson Liam...I'm really looking forward to our weekend together and helping Jessi & Liam move.  I can't wait to see the excited look on Liam's face when I pick him up at school this afternoon...there is nothing quite as sweet!  You know I'll be telling you more about it...

I had a great evening with my friend Brucie, and we were pleasantly surprised by our friends Doug & Nancy who saw us sitting on the porch and decided to stop and say hello.  We all ended up enjoying dinner together at Big League Eatery, one of my favorite burger joints.  So great to see you all, thanks for the good conversation and laughs!

I'll close with a few pictures from the river today...

A bougainvillea, a bright and vibrant bush with really big thorns!
A cloudy sunrise...


A pineapple, just starting to grow...I hope nothing eats it before we get to harvest it!


A purple heart wildflower.

An Eastern lubber grasshopper nymph (immature grasshopper).

Another pretty wildflower, but I'm not sure what it's called.


Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
Lise

Wonderful photos! I started two pineapple plants and they got killed by the freeze, even with covering them well. Have to start over! That three-petaled flower is some like of trillium, I think. Glad you are enjoying your visit with your family!

Looks like you've been busy, but having fun. The pineapple looks like it is doing good. I love fresh pineapple. - Margy

Thanks Patti, I can not complain!

Thanks Marie, hope your new pineapple's get to mature!

Thanks Dad, hugs back!

Margy, these pineapples are so incredibly sweet, which is why roaming creatures usually get them before we do!
