Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks
The sun was out bright and strong, and the temps were workable .. I did NOT want to spend it around the house yesterday, and decided to get dressed, dress a bit warmer, and go out to the park .. I've been missing my critters .. and decided to push myself a bit harder .. going a bit farther down the bugline trail .. it's so serene, and peaceful ... I find my inner happy when I'm walking on it .. :)
My littl birds were uncooperative, and my lookout point was rather quiet ... but it is "that time of year" and I'm assuming that they were fussing with their nesting .. It IS that time of year, and well -- I got alot of photos of trees .. because they were very active in the brush .. My cardinals .. I ALMOST got a marriaged pair (they pair for life), but they were too flitty .. and when you line up in the trees .. one branch looks like the next ... lol lol lol .. however, the little finches were "ummm really busy" .. and almost violent .. but it's the way of nature .. however .. they were teeny tiny finches, that would have been soooo cool to get pictures of .. On the branches .. not "busy" .. *eek* lol lol lol but in the future .. another bird to look for .. :)
I did get one of my hawk .. he/she came flying overhead ... and I got so excited, I almost fell over backward .. lol lol ..
But I did get a new bird .. that my "friends" state are Cedar Waxwings ... I don't recall ever seeing them in the area anymore, but now that I know what they are, it says they are very prevalent around this area .. but they almost look like buffed wooden statues .. sooo pretty .. :) I thought I was just taking a picture of some sparrows or finches .. and then I saw the crest on the top.. I posted to a page that I belong to on FB, and the people said they were Cedar Waxwings .. :)
I continued walking, and my lookout was very quiet, but I got some pictures of mallards, and my MooCow ducks .. (anacona) ... Hubby told me I'm turning into a birdologist .. lol .. and I told him I'm enjoying myself !!! and having fun .. :)
During my walk through the newer area .... I got a surprise .. sorry he isn't focused too well, but he surprised me .. lol lol ..
After I finished my walk .. I took some new paths, and by the time I got back to the car, found that I had been out over an hour .. and felt sooooo great !!!!!
I didn't want to go back home, because I knew I would plunk myself down and that would be it for the day until dinner .. but I decided to go to hubby's Wii bowling, and just stop in and visit .. I brought my camera in, and checked the photos that I got .. (I can't see when I'm outside, because of the glare .. so it's a surprise when I get where I CAN check them .. lol ..
Hubby and I headed for home, and I told him I wanted a light lunch.. so I had a ham rollup with lettuce, and tomato, and then a handful of chips .. and we put everything away .. and then I sat for a bit ..
I surfed through FB, and posted some of my pictures, and saw that my SIL and brother went to a park, and fed the birds .. I was SOOOOO jealous ... and told her so .. lol lol .. that's one of my bucket list things to do .. is feed the birds out of my hand .. lol
I snoozed for a bit .. and all of a sudden my phone rang, and it was mom .. she asked what I was doing "tomorrow" .. (today) ... and I told her that I had nothing planned .. what I had planned was in the morning .. (chair yoga) .. and she asked if I wanted to go to Fox and Hounds for dinner with her and Ceile .. (her friend, and my guardian angel) .. and I asked hubby and he said fine ... so tonight I'm heading out to Fox and Hounds for dinner .. *I'm turning into such a socialite!!!!* ... lol I'm meeting them there at 4 this afternoon .. otherwise they would have to come out of their way to pick me up .. and it's just a stones throw away .. lol ..
WOOHOO !!!!! :)
I left for my lobster dinner with my friends last night, and actually got there before my friends .. lol .. We went to the Range Line Inn .. and I love that place .. it's a quaint place and sooo homey .. the site was actually part of the underground railroad during the civil war days .. and it's such and interesting place, however, you have to have firm footing when you walk because the floor is NOT level .. and the help walks through and advises you of all the dips and curves .. lol ..
I don't know if this is readable .. but I got a photo of the place mats, which tell the base story .. :)
While I was there, my SIL texted me and asked if I wanted to come with her and my brother on the 12th, to the park, so I could feed the birds, and then a fish fry afterward .. I told her I had to ask hubby; but I would JUMP at the chance (weather permitting) .... so I have that to look forward to... I don't think there's a day in my life, since we were kids and daddy would take us to the park, that I've spent the whole day with my brother .. (getting closer) .. :) and that excites me as well .. but she's going to show me how to "feed the birds" .. I asked hubby and he said it wouldn't be a problem .. WOOHOO !!!!!!!! So hoping the weather behaves .. :)
Today I start out with my chair yoga, and then golf with hubby this afternoon (since I'll be gone for dinner .. even though I'll get home early; and while I know that I am going to TRY and eat lighter than last night ... I don't think I'll be ready for golf when I get home .. lol) and the meet mom and Ceile for dinner .. :)
Tomorrow I have a luncheon engagement .. (oooooo I'm turning into such a social butterfly !!!!!! ) lol .. and looking soooo forward to that !!! I haven't seen my friend for some time, and know we'll have a good time !!!! :)
Yup -- life is treating me well .. and I'm enjoying every minute of it !!!! :)
With that being said, I have to get myself going here .. and will talk again later .. Make sure whatever you do today, you do it with GUSTO !!!!!!
