Thursday Thirteen #301

Out the Window . . .

1. A jungle of green and the side of a mountain. I was in the hospital, on the 7th floor - the facility butts up against a mountain.

2. One of the firefighters who works with my husband loading his SUV with flowers, his wife, and his new son. My husband was taking me home after my surgery, and the new dad was taking his new family home. So sweet!

3. A turkey hen with six fuzzy balls of feathers running around at her feet.

4. Zucchini plants growing by inches right before my eyes.

5. Rain coming down so thick and heavy that it really does look like sheets.

6. The big bull with his hackles raised as he bellowed at the raucous kid next door (the neighbor has a new bull).

Green Green Green
7. Green as far as I can see, green mountains, green fields, green trees.

8. Fog-covered mountain tops.

9. The silhouette of my friend through the window of my back door.

10. My husband's pickup in the driveway, signaling he is home.

11. A pale yellow butterfly flitting amongst the clover.

12. My nephews mowing the yard for my husband so he can take care of me.

13. Little robin red-breast, head cocked and ear to the ground, and a fluffy tailed brown bunny.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 301st time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Thirteen beautiful things out your window!

    All the while I thought the comedy of errors occurred at Lewis Gale. You were at Carilion! Now I don't know which hospital to chose should I ever need one. Sheesh!

  2. I wonder if you saw my daughter-in-law who works at Carilion. I hope you are healing up well and still enjoying looking out your window (and watching the RAIN).

  3. Hope you are feeling better. Lots of pretty things to see outside your window.

  4. Some great views out of that window.

  5. Much better views than what's outside my windows (parking lot, cars, trash and recycling bins, fence...). Hope you are feeling better and have a good 4th!

  6. Have a great fourth while you are pampered. Love that nephew!

  7. Glad you're well after your surgery. Thanks for sharing your window views - really lovely. I love #11. You made it sound poetic.


  8. I'm glad you're on the road to recovery. My Mum had gallstones at a very early age and came home with a jar of the stones. It was an interesting talking point with us kids.
    It sounds as if you have a gorgeous view out your windows.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
