Whenever I see a giraffe, a zebra, a beautiful bird, gorgeous landscapes, mountain, newborns, and many other breath taking things, I think of God. He is such an artist. It is amazing isn't it.

The giraffes at the zoo are definetly the main attraction. Getting to feed them is so much fun. They have enourmous tongues. They are so tame and love lettuce. I guess certain times in the day you can also feed them crackers. The guy on the top had just taken my lettuce. It is hard to get a picture since you face the giraffes to feed them. A little scary to feed them backwards.

Night before last we had 7 tornados touch down in Ohio. Sirens started in the middle of the night. The kids are school were exhausted yesterday along with the adults. To top that off the elementary school where I work had some electricity but about half the power was off. This morning the power was still half off. It was cold as the heat wasn't working. Before I left this morning the power trucks were there and they had shut off all the power. The amazing thing was that school was not cancelled. I keep waiting for a phone call saying they had early dismissal and that I need to go back in. The whole school was so dark. The kids getting off the bus were so excited. The teachers.....well not so much. The storms didn't do alot of damage. I think the tornados weren't on the ground very long. We were lucky.

Okay one more amazing thing. My Mom is doing amazing (doctor's words) and is leaving rehab tomorrow. I will take her home and spend the week-end with her. Mr. Cozy will bring her little dog on Sunday. I hope she will be okay on her own by Monday. A little scary being 2 hours away.

Have an amazing day.

Debby! I am so amazed that all the bad weather seems to hit in your area. No power is so awful for creative people! We had those terrible winds for days, I'm so glad they have passed.
The zoo! Don't you just love it! You are so lucky to have seen the baby giraffes. I am in love with the polar bears, I could watch them for hours.
I wish you and your family a wonderful Easter. Thank you for stopping by, a chance for me to revisit you! Elizabeth

Didja know giraffes have purple tongues so they don't get sunburnt? Just one reason I'm in love with'em!

Hip-hip-hooray for your mom! Wishing her recovery continues to go smoothly :)

I LOVE these cute are such a cute grammy. :)

The last time we went to the zoo, we, too, fed the giraffes. So fun and Deeds was so excited.

We have a lot of tornadoes out here in West Texas, too. They are so scary. My mom was so scared of them, my brother and I spent half our little life in the cellar.
Now, I am scared of FIRE.
Thanks for your prayers, Debby.
xoxo bj
