03.12.20 Bo and Peep’s newest adventures

The last time we shared about Bo and Peep’s Adventures Peep (the female) was laying eggs and we anticipated a growing family of ducks.  Well. we are not sure why this happened but Peep never got on the eggs she laid to nest.  It was pretty awful when Roy had to throw the eggs away. She’s a pretty easy going duck and the loss of those eggs didn’t seem to bother her.

Time went by and no more eggs. Then she started popping those little things out like before at the rate of one a day! We don’t know exactly how many they are but here is her nest that I think is beautiful. We think it is around 13 eggs.

I think seeing Peep nesting is just precious. She will be sitting on her eggs for around 23 hours out of the 24 hours in a day.  When Roy let them out of their protected overnight cage this morning she enjoyed some running around time then headed back in to sit on her babies!

Bo waddles around the yard now without her which is very weird because they have always been together wherever they went! He spends some time kind of guarding her in the cage too. Roy got this close up picture by zooming in from far enough away to not disturb Peep.  Doesn’t she make a beautiful mama! We believe that Peep laying eggs and nesting and Bo being protective of her may be the explanation for some erratic behavior Bo has been exhibiting towards me lately. This doesn’t happen to Roy, just me. I cannot go out in the yard with no shoes on or non-closed toed shoes on. He pecks at them and then starts actually bitting at me on my feet, legs and wherever he can get to me.

He doesn’t always do it thank goodness.

He can see me come out the back door and he’ll fly up the hill and waddle quickly to my feet. I wear knee-high boots outside now. He doesn’t seem to care about me when I sit down to pull weeds etc. He leaves me along and will even sit down next to me! Strangest thing!

Day 1 of Peep’s nesting was yesterday, March 11th. She will nest for around 28 days which will be April 7th.  That is our oldest son’s birthday so he’ll possibly share his birthday with some of his nieces and nephews!

Well, that’s our Bo and Peep update and their most recent adventure, becoming parents. Our next planned update will be when those babies start hatching!

Ya’ll have a Blessed weekend!  In light of the concerns about the coronavirus I thought the scripture below may helpful to someone.

 

 

 

03.10.20 I love to pull weeds

Yes, I love to pull weeds. Now don’t go getting all crazy thinking I’ll come to your home to pull your weeds. The answer would be NO! I doubt I’d pull someone else’s weeds even if I got paid!  Well maybe I’d pull weeds at my sons’ homes but THAT’S IT!

Right now I am stretched out on our sofa resting my screaming back after spending 3 hours pulling weeds around some of our trees. When I am pulling the weeds I lay on my side propping up my head with my knuckles to get into the best position for pulling.  This makes different muscles and joints hurt than if I sat up crosslegged and pulled.  But I no longer am able to sit crosslegged! Fat people just can’t do that!

I know when I get down on the ground that I will be there for a long time and that when I am done I will be laying on the sofa with my back screaming but I do it anyway. I scoot around the grass on my bottom and wind up with a very brown bottom when I’m finished.

Not only do I love it but I am good at this weed pulling too! It is an art that I’ve honed over many years and perhaps decades. Yes I still know big words like “honed”

I love to take something that looks rather ratty and after pulling some (to a lot) weeds turning it into something that looks nice and manicured. There is the feeling of getting something done that counts.

Thank goodness for our pine trees that produce a lot of pine needles each year. I pile up a lot of pine needles around all the oak trees and pine trees. That helps a lot on the weed pulling. Not so many weeds to pull!

I don’t wear gloves or use fancy tools in my weed pulling. Every now and then I’ll need a hand shovel but that’s not often. I don’t let our weeds get strong enough roots before I yank them out of the soil!  I try as best I can to get every root up out of the ground so those little boogers cannot continue sprouting more weeds.

There is one thing that’s kinda cool about weed pulling when you the weeds are growing around things. Usually in our yard in the same place I pulled up the weeds there are a lot of St. Augustine grass runners to pull up….. and plant somewhere else!!! So today’s weed pulling produced a lot of grass runners to be planted tomorrow!

I’m finishing this up on Tuesday morning and am hopeful that the rain has ended so the grass runners can get planted. I have to make sure Victor and Nicki on the Young and Restless are doing well first!

I hope ya’ll have a Blessed week!

 

03.05.20 The words of Christian hymns truly never leave you

The words of Christian hymns truly never leave you. Their words and what they mean to our lives are imprinted on our hearts. No matter what amount of time has passed, when we hear the music, the words come streaming back into our minds and out of our mouths as we sing them!  I listen to a lot of hymns on my computer while enjoying creating in my craft room. Right now I’m listening to Alan Jackson sing several hymns played on Roy’s computer in his office. The volume is turned up so I can hear them in the living room.

What made me start thinking about hymns staying in our hearts was something that happened yesterday. We had one of our occasional visits from our son Chip. He brought the Alan Jackson CD “Precious Memories” with the hymns on it. We played them like we are doing right now. Chip was cooking a special breakfast for us and I started to hear him sing with the hymns. He sang every word of hymns he had not sung in church in years.

Chip was raised at our church Trinity Baptist Church where we’ve mostly sung from a Baptist Hymnal all his growing up life. As an adult, he began going to and now is a member of a non-denominational church that does not sing hymns. They sing contemporary Christian songs which I also love but they are not the old hymns. I would have thought he’d have forgotten the words of the hymns he used to sing. Not so, he could sing every word of every song we listened to.

Roy, Chip and I were singing together with the music. Chip was in the kitchen cooking, I was in the living room and dad was in his office.

The sounds of the music, our three very untrained voices, all singing praises to our Lord was a moment I won’t soon forget. I thank God for our Christian family and the love for our Lord that we all have.

The weekend is almost here, I hope you have a Blessed one!

02.28.20 Getting ready for spring blooms!

We have two large ornamental grass bushes near our driveway. They are beautiful when in full bloom but over the winter the beautiful green long leaves die off. Last year Roy cut them both back really well and they were prettier that year than ever before.

This year when Roy got to that item on his “honey do” list he did a great job cutting it back. The first photo below is of one of the bushes cut back. He did the cutting and I picked it up and piled it in our driveway. We had one chair out there and when one of us was doing our part the other one rested in the chair.

When Roy lit the pile on fire I just knew the whole house was going to go up in flames.  It did not! 

I guess that’s how things are done out here in the country.  This was about a month ago and now those bushes are shooting out new growth all over the place! It won’t be long before we can start seeing their beauty again! 

Our blueberry bushes have lots of blooms on them which I am hopeful means a productive blueberry season, FINALLY!!  I hope you can see the blooms on this one bush. They are light pink. We have eight bushes which would mean lots of blueberries!

We cut back and divided our lantana bushes so hopefully, soon we’ll have new blooms and flowers on those. One of our knockout roses died last year. We don’t know why but it was dug up and a new one planted. They have sprouted lots of leaves and should be blooming soon. The azaleas are doing well and blooming now like they do each year. Lots of our bulb flowers are sprouting all over our property.  A couple have bloomed but I’m waiting for more blooms before taking photos to share!

Ya’ll have a Blessed weekend!

 

 

 

 

02.27.20 Mardi Gras at the flying field!

This was a very unusual Mardi Gras for Roy and I. When we were younger we went to every parade we could. In recent years we’ve chosen to watch some parades on television and attend none in person. We did go to one a couple of years ago. This year we did none of that!

Several of Roy’s remote control flying buddies went to the flying field for Mardi Gras. We really enjoyed the day watching the guys flying their planes, drones, and a paraglider They all have really cool flying machines and the guys know how to fly them very well.

Our son Chip stopped by on his lunch hour from work to watch his dad fly. Being the awesome son he is, Chip took our truck to be washed and brought it back spotless!!! Thanks, Chip! Your hugs were great and we both appreciate the visit and the clean vehicle!

Roy took this picture with his drone. This is several of the attendees at the Mardi Gras flying!

Another picture Roy took from his drone of one of the guys flying his plane.

One of the flyers, Andre’, brought his paraglider and flew all around the place. I really enjoyed seeing him do that!

Rick, Andre’ and Richard standing behind Andre’s paraglider 

One of the guys, Richard has a wonderful wife Linda whom I was blessed to get to know on Tuesday. I enjoyed our one on one conversation that lasted the whole time we were there. I came away from there feeling I had made a new very special friend. She plays Sudoku which is (according to Wikipedia) a logic-based, combinatorial number-placement puzzle. The objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with digits so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 subgrids that compose the grid contain all of the digits from 1 to 9.

I have seen these puzzles before and could never figure out what it was about. She taught me how to play and I was very excited to really catch on to this brain challenging game! Linda even gave me her big book of sudoku puzzles. Wow, how nice! I’ve been working the puzzles, slowly but surely since we got home! I look forward to visiting with her again out at the flying field soon! The picture below is of Richard, Linda, and Ron at the flying field just on a different day.

That’s it for our fun day at the flying field. It took Roy and me all evening and night to mostly recover from that much fun!

No matter how tired we were we still went to work out Wednesday at the fitness center! We are nearing the end of our third week of working out three days a week and we’re still loving it.

That’s Roy in the red shirt on one of the bikes.

I will be cooking a big pot of gumbo on the very cold day that Thursday is supposed to be. The last large bags of our homegrown okra and one of our bell pepper containers from last year’s garden will go into that gumbo! Love using our homegrown vegetables in our cooking!

Ya’ll have a Blessed weekend!

03.05.19 Mardi Gras in New Orleans 2016 reposted and updated

I love sharing some of what makes New Orleans’s Mardi Gras so unique.  Below you will see how New Orleanians mark their spots on the parade routes; a group of folks parading in Lazy Boy recliners; Endymion (one of the largest parades) ends its parade by going into the Superdome (2 videos of this); a documentary about Mardi Gras and New Orleans.  Last but certainly not least are the actual floats built by Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World where most of the major floats are made.  This is New Orleans Mardi Gras. Because of the horrific NO ALL by the blind referees in the Saints vs. Rams playoff game I’ve included a video of a float and paraders keeping that event alive.

02.23.17 It’s Carnival Time in New Orleans and the Chauvin family had so much fun!

Friday, February 23, 2017 – Last Saturday the Chauvins from Amite went with the Chauvins from Ponchatoula to uptown New Orleans.  Why??? Because It’s Carnival Time!!!  That’s the song heard all over during the Mardi Gras season in New Orleans.

My long time friend Chip Saunders helped me greatly figure out the best way for us to get to and see the parade.  There are so many people that go if you don’t have a friend along the route or within several blocks of the route that is willing to let you park in their driveway you are out of luck.  Because of that we decided to park far away from the parade and ride the St. Charles street card to the parade. We drove to St. Charles and Broadway parking about a half block from the St. Charles streetcar line.

Streetcars in New Orleans date back to 1893 and travel along four major streets (The St. Charles Avenue Line, the Riverfront Line, the Canal Street Line, and the Loyola Avenue Line.)

We have what’s called Neutral Grounds in New Orleans which is where the streetcar tracks run.  It’s the raised grassy/concrete area between streets going in different directions. The picture below with the Broadway street sign shows the tracks the street cars run on.

Here are some pictures of us on the streetcar enjoying the beautiful day and the beautiful ride!

While riding the streetcar along St. Charles Avenue to where it had to stop because of the parade, we enjoyed seeing all the people walking to the parade as well as many of the gorgeous homes lining St. Charles Avenue.  20170218_153715 20170218_153402 20170218_153327 20170218_153303

We got off the streetcar at St. Charles and Cadiz which is two blocks from the corner of Napoleon and St. Charles.  The parades started a few blocks down Napoleon and turned the corner onto St. Charles Avenue.   Three parades followed this route Saturday.  First was the Krewe of Ponchartrain, second the Krewe of Choctaw and last was the Krewe of Freret.  These are all different groups of people and different floats.  We stayed for the first two parades and had a lot of fun!  These photos are just a few of the sights we saw!  Madisyn worked her way through the crowds to get a great first row spot right behind the barriers.

20170218_151255 20170218_151204 20170218_150843 20170218_150611 20170218_144448 20170218_143520 20170218_143238 20170218_135923 20170218_135733 20170218_135504 20170218_135101 20170218_134331 20170218_134242

We saw the children of a friend of ours from Hammond (Nancy Waldo) at the parade on Napoleon.  Eddie, Erin and Melissa Rantz grew up at our church Trinity and were with their dad at the parade.  Haven’t seen them in years so it was nice to visit and catch up.

Here’s the map that shows the route these parades took.  More parades were taking place in other places around the New Orleans Metropolitan Area that day and every day until Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, February 28th.  parade-route

The St. Charles streetcar line follows the route shown below.  You can see we got on at stop C and off at stop F.  Some of the most beautiful homes are along the route from F to J but we had to stop at F to see the parade.

st-charles-streetcar-map

Our ride back to the car on the streetcar was delightful.  This driver saw we were old and gave us the Senior Discount.  The regular $1.25 fare was reduced to 30 cents each!  Old age does have some perks! The driver invited Madisyn and a couple of other children to join him at the front while he drove the streetcar.  They really enjoyed that!  Madisyn looks a bit odd because she had vampire teeth in her mouth!

Loyola University and some beautiful homes were at the corner where we got off the streetcar to go home.20170218_133758  20170218_132417This is Madisyn who is shielding her eyes from the sun.  Wanted you to see all the beads she was wearing around her neck. That’s vampire blood in her hands!  The vampire teeth and blood, the bow headband that lights up and the pink monkey tucked inside the beads were all from the parade!

20170218_154804

We took a ride down memory lane on our way home showing Kallie, Madisyn and Misty where Grannie grew up in New Orleans and where Daddy Chip lived when he was a baby and little boy.  Fun, fun!  We then drove down Canal Blvd. to show them all where Roy and I were married and where Chip and our oldest son went with us to church when they were little boys before we moved to Hammond.  Lakeview Baptist Church is now  Harbor Community Church.  They flooded and were pretty much destroyed during Katrine.  It’s taken years for them to recover but it looks amazing.  We couldn’t go in so I took one picture through the front door.

I know that kinda went from woohoo Mardi Gras to ugh Katrina.  But New Orleans has history and is recovering slowly but surely.  The fact that this church was able to survive when no one lived anywhere near it for months is a blessing God gave the congregation.  This was the church I grew up in and was married in.  Lots of great history there!

If you would like to learn more about Mardi Gras krewes here are links to the two we saw.

02.17.15 It’s Mardi Gras time in New Orleans! repost from 2014 and new 2015 pics

This post was published last year on Mardi Gras. It continues to be one of the top viewed posts I publish so I thought I’d post it new this year in case someone missed it last year! New 2015 pictures have been added!nardu gras sign

2014 – I’ve been given the day off work so I’m ready for some play time! I’ve played all morning with our granddaughter Madisyn who is celebrating her 5th birthday! We had a special breakfast of waffles with fresh blueberries and strawberries on top and a fruit smoothie. Lunch was peanut butter and jelly so breakfast had to be special. Roy’s working all day today on his ad creations so it’s Madisyn and Grannie time all day!

It’s freezing cold and raining here today and unfortunately raining in New Orleans and Metairie on the Mardi Gras parades. For those who don’t know, Mardi Gras lasts for two weeks with dozens of parades nightly all around the area. Today, is Mardi Gras Day and even though the weather is terrible enough to keep some people home there are thousands still out on the streets today catching beads, doubloons, trinkets and coconuts. Yes, coconuts! The Krewe of Zulu throw coconuts that have been painted in brilliant colors by hand and are considered a huge prize to catch one from one of their floats.

KREWE OF ZULU COCONUTS

 

Mardi Gras (in New Orleans and the surrounding cities) is 99% family oriented (acceptable viewing by all) involving massive amounts of food (mostly fried chicken and king cake and lots of BBQ), music, bead and doubloon catching and fun with family and friends. The 1% of Mardi Gras that is filled with nudity, perversion, drunkness, etc. is what the media picks up and shows the world. Never ever fear to come to Mardi Gras because of that. What you see and experience will not include that unless you choose to go there.

One very New Orleans Mardi Gras tradition is the ladders. Dads and Grandpas (yes and maybe some Moms and Grannies) make wooden boxes to attach to the ladders for the kiddies to sit in so they can see the parade over the parents heads and catch tons more goodies. My dad held me on his shoulders for many parades when I was little and I’m sure he’d have liked to have had a ladder back then when I got bigger! The ladders and boxes are painted and decorated in traditional purple, green and golds making the parade route even more colorful! Seems like someone got creative one year and figured out how to get the box to fold up and roll it all on wheels!

Sunday Gras! 026 mardigrasladders mardi graw ladder boxThe New Orleans Police force knows how to do Mardi Gras and keep control over hundreds of thousands of partiers for days on end during Mardi Gras season.

mardi gras bead treeI seem to be finding more videos of NOPD officers participating in Mardi Gras this year than usual. The one below is of an officer leading a cheer with the crowd.

Since most of the schools close here for the week of Mardi Gras a good many families traditionally take a vacation to Disneyworld, Colorado or somewhere since most American children are in school and these high traffic destinations are a lot less crowded. A bunch of people from our church in New Orleans where I grew up, Lakeview Baptist Church use to go skiing in Colorado every Mardi Gras. The church flooded terribly in Katrina, was restored and is now a new church incorporated the original membership and another churches membership so I don’t know if they still do that. But this type of tradition take a lot of people away from the city when it is it’s fullest with people from all over arriving for Mardi Gras. This morning the news reporter asked one man where he was from and he said San Diego, then the next where they were form and they said New York and the next was from Washington DC. While the New Orleanians are flying out, the rest of the world is flying in there!

There are plenty of parades before Mardi Gras day for the New Orleanians to get their fill. Just the weekend before are Endymion and Bacchus which are the two super parades with spectacular floats every year. FLOATS are professionally built and quite expensive. TRUCK FLOATS are made by organizations and families and while expensive to make don’t carry quite the huge price tag that regular floats do.

Below are some floats related pictures of floats created by Blaine Kern at Mardi Gras World. Below those are three pictures of truck floats called that because they are pulled by either tractors or trucks. In all the small towns we’ve visited when they had parades they were all pulled by trucks or tractors but none of their truck floats were like the ones in Mardi Gras parades. I loved the small town parades but Mardi Gras has it’s own brand of parade truck float making!
