..Jan.31. 2015.. my week... xxx





Hello again....
I can't believe January went so quickly.....

We had a great week ... our youngest daughter Mary came for a few days while her car is off the road... she'll be back on Monday.. her work is only 2 streets away from our place...

Mary stayed with Mum while hubby and I went to a friends place for lunch on Thursday....

.... we had freshly BBQ chicken and salads...... it was delicious......


Our friend has 2 Chinese Crested dogs... I love them but they are a bit weird for some people....

                            ....................... I think she is gorgeous..........................


... our friend also has a German Shepherd..... here are all three dogs ... they are all girls...
... here they are patiently waiting to be hand fed some chicken as a treat..... so well behaved..  xx


           ..................her son has the Parrot you see here on my shoulder.. so tame... xxx



            ..............  I think I need to trim my outdoor bench seat..... 



                   ..........................  so pretty ...........................






Some cloud photos to finish with.....
See you all soon...
Hugs ... Barb  xxxx
