This and That



Out and about on an adventure, I came upon this family of plastic ducks.



Play & Have Fun

To a young heart everything is fun.

Spring in Wisconsin... oh feel that sunshine.


What to do in case of emergency:

1. Pick up your hat.

2. Grab your coat.

3. Leave your worries on the doorstep.

4. Direct your feet to the sunny side of the street.

  1. I was wondering what those were! How cute.🐥

  2. The water is soooo pretty and peaceful to look at.

  3. I remember that song! What fun for someone to leave the baby ducks.

  4. Now, I'm wondering what you are going to do with those tiny ducks. lol...
    That water looks so calm and peaceful.


  5. Carla, I bet that was a delight to see the plastic duck family, so cute. I think they were meant for you. I love the "young heart" quote too. Glad to hear you are finally feeling Spring. I chuckled on what you said about Ernie and the red fire hydrant hehehe.

    Have a blessed week, Carla.


  6. What a cute find with the family of ducks :) too cute. I'm so glad spring has arrived here in Wisconsin, not that we had a long winter it was just a weird one. I've been trying to get outside as much as possible.

  7. Nice, being outside does make the worries fall away!

  8. That is very interesting about those ducks. The photos are lovely of spring in Wisconsin. Well I wish I would be able to do that in an emergency. I do understand where she is coming from. Go out and have some fun!

  9. What a sweet post. The nice spring days are perfect here in Wisconsin. The back and forth between warm and cold is rough, but the forecast after Thursday looks good. Maybe spring will stick around now. ;-)

  10. Loving that we are finally having good weather. Enjoy. Hugs. Kris

  11. Those cute ducks! I love spring and Susan Branch too!

  12. Those are the cutest little ducks. Did you just find them there? I love finding things like this....thing that others have left behind for someone else to find. Such a cute ending to your post....Have a wonderful week...

  13. It's a beautiful day here today. Now if the pollen would just settle down it would be even better.

  14. How cute!! I got to take a ferry boat across the Mississippi to get to work for four weeks. It was pretty neat start the day that way for a while.

  15. That was a cute find :)

    So nice to see the blue sky in you lovely photographs.

    All the best Jan

  16. Oh my your last few lines reminded me of how I used to sing that song when I was a kid! I thought the words were so happy. Those ducks are super tiny, hahaha! But all in a row, as they should be. xoxo
