Things are looking up!

Please click and enlarge till you can get the full effect!
Today since things really went a lot better, I thought I might as well use the phrase 'things are looking up' since it applies in more ways than one.
These are captures from out at the strip pits last night...the Eastern Kingbird I showed in my last post was taken last night late. I was amazed that it turned out as good as it did.
We didn't see near the animals we normally seen...and most of those only in the distance. But it was still worth going just to see the sky change with each passing moment. It was a great way to end the day.
Today was a wonderful day....Lorelei took the bottle without a fuss every single time. She only got fussy when she needed to be burped. And Grandpa introduced her to Barney! You would not believe her reaction...she laughed and 'talked' and grinned almost the whole time. And best of all, her mommy called to check on how things were going and got to hear her laughing. So keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer for us that things continue to go this well.

beautiful sky. It looks like it might rain. Did it?
I posted a Western Kingbird today. Funny huh? MB

Nice shots from a successful evening. Who doesn't like Barney... a sure winner with the young people.
Must be very relieving to have her taking the bottle okay now.

Gorgeous heron shot, they look so elegant and yet 'prehistoric' when they fly! Glad things went so well the L. - what a sweetie!

Thank you so much, Rose! I feel so horrible for Jennifer - I wish I could be there w/ them for support or something!!!

Oh yes, there's fish in the pond & I like to fish, but dad is getting irritated w/ others who come out to fish, cuz they'll snag the line & kill the fish - so he's getting to where he doesn't want anyone fishing there anymore.

Hi Rose, Gorgeous pictures...The sky is just so pretty.

I'm sure that Lorelei will do fine with her Grammy... Speaking of that, what are you going to be called (Mimi, Memaw, Granny, Grammy, etc.)???? I'm Grammy to my grands.

Have a great and wonderful day.

Great pictures and a wonderful report on Lorelei...she will be doing just great with you and Grandpa! Barney is a winner for sure, when all else fails :>)!

Sounds like another great day with Lorelei.

Hi Rose
these are nice shots indeed... I have always enjoyed my visits here, not just for your pictures but for the way you write as well. I can not get by here like I used to but I know you understand that. Since that little beauty 'Lorelei Rose' came along your posts have gone from strength to strength and your love for her shines bright in your pictures and words. It really is a privilege to drop by here and see how things are going...

Just like my Jane you are a grand Grandma :O)

Apparently kids LOVE Barney for several reasons, most importantly because he is RED. ;-) (I just heard that on the radio a couple of days ago.) I bet Barney will be Lorelei's sidekick for the next few years. ;-)

What a great series of end-of-day pictures. The first one is absolutely gorgeous.

Rose: Those are certainly beautiful captures of the sky. I do love your heron in flight.
