The Falcon landed in our yard again. I finally figured out how to take a close up with our camera. It was lightly raining, so rain drops were on the window, but the picture still showed up pretty good.

I was doing so well today. I was eating good, and stayed within my calorie range. Then tonight I get a slight headache. Probably sinuses from the wacky weather we have been having. Anyway, when Dennis got home from work, and he commutes an hour... Read more
I can't believe how thrilling this winter has been. I thought seeing the House Finches in my yard was exciting. The house where I exercise the Border Collies, about 8 miles from my house, had some new birds show up. The first day I spotted them,... Read more
Oh I am so excited. Today I pulled up in the driveway, after my shopping, and a bunch of sparrows were eating their seeds that I put out. We have a long driveway, so the seed bins are right by the house, but more in a protected area. They seem t... Read more
This was sent to me in a email. They said they got it from Dear Abby. I haven't read her column for years, but I really liked this one, and I'm sure most of you will. Here's to 2010!

Just for today, I will live t... Read more
I have mixed feelings. I love my little Sparrows, and so enjoy watching them feed off the bird feeders, and taking a bath in the bird bath I got for my Birthday this year. And there are plenty of them that hang around our yard.

My oldest Sister sent me this today, and I had to share it with my friends. There are days when we want to give up, we wonder if we will ever reach our goals. When you start feeling like this, keep Patrick Ivison in mind. If he can do it, we all... Read more

Last week I had the chance to help take care of some Emu's, while the owners were out of town. Most of them were wild, except for Mr. A. I fed him Pear Tomatoes, and Cherry Tomatoes. He took them from my hand so graciously. Never pecked me once.... Read more
Yesterday, my Hubby and I did our weekly grocery shopping. When we came out of the store, I looked up at the sky, and my mouth flew open. The sky was golden colored. I have never seen it like this. I didn't have the camera with me (gerr), so I ... Read more
I had this corner, in my front yard, that was open and bare. I tried putting in a small plant or two, ground cover, and it never looked good. Either the spot was too hot, or didn't get enough sun. It's what you call a problem area. I was a bit ... Read more
I have the pleasure of exercising two border collies on a daily basis. I also doggy sit them when their Mommy goes out of town. Both of the dogs are so loving, and make my job so much fun. I just adore them!
