Outdoor Wednesday & Rednesday

I've been getting some good pictures at the park lately. We've seen deer, silk worms, squirrels, birds, you name it!! I had a sweet blogger mention to me I should link up to Outdoor Wednesday...so this is my first entry.
This little guy wasn't scared of me at all! I actually thought he was going to chase me for a minute!



Today is also Rednesday over at It's A Very Cherry World! I had to share this cute photo CC took on our way home from church Sunday... this car was parked next to us and this little doggy was so comfortable and relaxed, just enjoying his ride!
I don't know if you have ever tried Campbell's Soup at Hand...if you have, you know how good it is! If you haven't, you need to go try it immediately! When I worked I would take these portion sized soups with me and have it for breakfast everyday! It is so good and warm and tasty! Definitely the perfect way to start the day!
The Creamy Tomato Parmesan Bisque is my absolute favorite!
My mother gave me an amaryllis bulb a couple of months ago. I didn't have a vase to put it in so the bulb sat in a plastic bag. We noticed mold started growing on it so CC transferred it to one of her old betta fish bowls. We didn't think it would do anything! The very next morning the green stalk doubled in size. Each day we could see how big it had grown. Today it bloomed!

I had to transfer it to a bigger crystal vase because it was so heavy it kept tipping over the little fish bowl!
And...my favorite "red" today...yesterday on the way to the park I stopped at a different gas station than usual to buy water for us. I saw some lotto tickets and I was able to buy them with my debit card..lots of places don't let you. I almost passed this one up but decided at the last minute to get it...I'm so glad I did... I won $100!!!
So today I went back to Ross, bought each girl a new shirt, Mom and myself a jacket and Papa Bear a new laptop bag! And I still have half left! Now THAT'S some bargain shopping!

In regards to your questions about the cake frosting: yes, if you want to use jam, then put that in between the layers- using it to level them out, THEN still do a light crumb coat when the whole thing is put together. Chill. Then frost with the pretty coat! Good luck!

Great photos. Love the flower - I've never had much luck with them.
