Are you watching eagles and owlets?



I am addicted to watching the DC eagles
Mr. President and The First Lady are such wonderful parents!
dceaglecam.eagles.org
This is a screen shot I took of the early morning light on their nest.

And I'm watching and waiting for the owlets in Savannah, Georgia to branch
and take their first flights.
They are also hilarious as they are wide awake most of the night
 and their swaying and bobbing will make you laugh out loud!

It's so windy most of the time on the island where the 
Great Horned Owls have nested...

The owlets must be exhausted from their tight grip on the nest!

serving scoops of orange and raspberry sherbet for Sky Watch Friday


My sister took this breathtaking photo this morning upon their return to Maine... 
and it reminds me of two wonderful quotes:

"I count myself lucky, having long ago won a lottery paid to me in seven sunrises a week for life." 
~  Robert Brault



"God is now serving scoops of orange and raspberry sherbet on the horizon.  
What a beautiful sunrise!"
~Terri Guillemets

These quotes fit perfectly!  Don't you think? 
Many blessings for a beautiful Easter weekend!

Peace and Joy

an eye on me - It's Sky Watch Friday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We finally had an opportunity to get out for a walk yesterday.
There were clouds, but nothing ominous.
Until we saw this smoothly sculpted eye giving us quite a look!


 Looking over my shoulder, I could see a front was on its way.
Quarter size drops of rain started falling on us.
We were close to home and it was actually a neat feeling thinking
it's rain and not snow.
Later in the night we saw bright lightning and heard rolling thunder...

... strange sounds in the month of March here in the northeast.


 Today, the sky is variable,
a mix of sunshine, clouds, and rain.

 ... And who doesn't love a silver lining at the end of the storm?!!!



I hope you all had a great week!

h e l l o !
W O W
Life happens!

...this past year...

Everyone was coming and going!

We packed up my childhood home
and my father made the move to live closer to us.
He also turned 90 and we had a sweet celebration!

Amanda got married to a wonderful man.
Rachael & her husband moved to Texas.
Jason still lives in Texas and is getting married next year.
Even my sister and her family moved away!

...and now...

How have YOU been?
~ It's been a long time ~
I've missed posting and visiting you.
I hope you are all well... 
and your paths have been

calm and gentle.
