Make one thing every day, wander like a gypsy, and shine happiness like the sun

“Of courserous, can’t you?”

If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals…. That was my FAVORITE movie when I was a kid.  Now to watch it is sometimes painful nostalgia, as the cinematography seems so primitive.  Kind of like how it’s fun to use an old fashioned hand crank egg beater for about a minute, then it gets old might quick.  Anyhow, I was fortunate to be able to visit the Waccatee Zoo in South Carolina this week, and these are my new friends.  I know that some think zoos are cruel, and sometimes I agree, but this zoo is peaceful, clean, and has a kind aura.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The River Rocks

I’ve been doing small projects lately as it’s all I seem to be able to wrap my head around.  The recent rains have made the river swell, but luckily I plucked these before the waters rose.  ImageImagechet, riverImage


Stinky Lemonade

You know the saying “When life gives you lemons…”? Well, the pictures tell this story.  The smell is slightly lingering-the upside is that the cats aren’t interested in the little owl 🙂ImageImageImageImage

She asks for so little

At the behest of my truest and oldest friend, I’m saddling up to the stool to type a meager post.  Probably no surprise that the long winter is chilling my spirit.  Anyhow- my daughter begged to keep this bonsai in her room and promised to care for it better than her hamster (who also died).  I snuck it and all it’s dead leaves out of her room to the plant infirmary (aka southeast facing laundry room window) and have been willing it to come back to life.  Maybe it’s my muse, as the little leaves are slowing pushing out of the dead branches.ImageImageImageImage
