Linking up with Art @ Home for My Happy List Tuesdays!
 
Here are just a few things on my happy list this week:
 
1. mornings with my momma.................Mom and I talk on the phone every morning, and we try to see each other as much as possible (she lives just minutes from me). During the summer months, while I'm working, we rarely skip our phone call, but it can sometimes be several days before we actually get together. This morning, instead of our call, she came by for a little breakfast on the patio.
What a great way to start my day!!! 
 
 
2. bird watching......Peter has really enjoyed all of the purple martin activity in our backyard and has hoped they would make their home in his birdhouse.  A few evenings ago, as we were watching the martins (and cardinals) fly all around the backyard, it was the sparrow that stole my attention. This one little sparrow would land on the birdhouse and two or three little heads would pop up with mouths wide open. I grabbed my camera and got a pretty good picture.
 
3. I was very happy to grab up these......
 
 
I've had my eye on these old table legs at the restaurant for quite awhile, so when they were being thrown out last week, I just couldn't let them go to the dump! Of course, Peter isn't on board with my "let's re-do our kitchen table" idea.....but he'll love it, I just know he will!!!
{this project is at the top of my fall to-do list}
 
4. flowers, flowers, flowers......my flower garden is really thriving, and a few weeks ago, this mystery vine started growing up the bird feeeder post....
I am pretty sure it is a morning glory, so I'm letting it stay for now!
I envied my neighbor's vine last year....
hopefully, mine will bloom soon.? :O)
 
5. last but not least......Nathan got his call from the tugboat company he applied with!!!!!!! Yesterday, he (and 3 others) met with the fleet manager, and today, he got his physical. Things are progressing much faster than we expected (which is a good thing), but even so, our life is a bit of a whirlwind right now! :O) He has a great summer job that he started right after graduation, but he is anxious to start his career as a tugger!

Sounds like you have had a wonderful week! I enjoy casual bird watching, but the birds refuse to come to our feeder. Our cat has apparently trained them to say off our property... Though anytime he steps in the neighbor's yards, at least one bird attacks him. So I guess they've made arrangements with the property lines! :P

Super Happy List! It's always good to spend time with mom. Flowers are always a good thing, and I absolutely love morning glories.

Thanks so much for linking-up your wonderful list! I've had a trying week, so I'm so encouraged to see that so many folks linked-up this week.

I'm your newest follower!

Have a fun weekend!
