My Life is really in the Garden

Enjoying and sharing the daily discoveries of the beautiful nature that surrounds me in my lovely garden and everywhere else!

Time .. Time … Time … flies and sometimes, slows down a little

Oh my goodness!!  Look at this date .. it is already November 18, 2019 and I haven’t blogged since July!

Unbelievable .. yet true.

Each day has been full, start to end .. of busyness!

Our little Spoiler is now 16 lbs and growing still .. he’s such a joy in our lives and we love him so much.

The garden .. my lovely paradise .. is resting for the winter.  Still chores to do and with a chunk of sunny days predicted for the next 4 .. I plan to go outside, with my little garden helper .. and do some clearing away of “stuff” .. you know the kind of buildup that remains after a busy summer!

Last Monday, a week ago today, we had the honour of a Barred Owl’s presence!  He perched in the cherry tree and stayed there all day!  Occasionally hopping to another branch as the crows (enemies from birth, crazy, eh?) to avoid them.

About 5 pm, I looked for him and thought he was gone when .. zoom .. he (she?)flew from the tree, eyes alight with focus, wings outspread, he flew at an angle to the house so I could clearly see his face … wow .. I felt so lucky to have seen this raw power.

Most likely this tree or others in the yard, are his home and we have only been able to see him this one day.

Have been madly making leather cord and bead bracelets .. spending hours on each one .. I’m starting to wonder about why I do this .. but, I love making them so won’t quit!

Feels good to have my fingers tapping away at the keys!  I’ll post pics later today.

And tomorrow .. I start a beginner adult Ukulele course with my funky Outdoor Uke! https://www.outdoorukulele.com/

This is the one I have:  https://www.outdoorukulele.com/collections/ukuleles/products/outdoor-ukulele-soprano-moonshine-gold

I’ll put little lights in it (as suggested by a Uke teacher!)

Tschuss!  A la prochaine!
