FOR TODAY (May 26, 2008)...

Outside My Window . . .The sun is beginning to set, a gentle breeze is waving the now large sycamore leaves, and a father cardinal is feeding her baby his last snack of the day before retiring for the night!

I am thinking...I've been feeding birds most of my adult life and I never get tired of watching them!

I am thankful for... Air Conditioning!

From the kitchen... Nothing today. Went for Burger King Burgers and onion rings!

I am wearing... oversized tee shirt, NO SHOES this week, baggy pants! (am I in a rut or what????)

I am creating... Not today! Finishing up some sets of angels.

I am going... Nowhere.

I am reading... Where is God when it Hurts?

I am hoping... Do I have NO hopes???? I'll have to come back to this one!

I am hearing... Buster snoring under my feet. (I might as well leave this here permanently, as he is always there when I'm on the computer!)

Around the house... Are lots of weeds that need to be pulled!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . Bake some bread, organize my cutting room, wash kitchen floor, laundry, send a friend a REAL letter!

Here is picture thought I am sharing... Always Hungry!

I'm so glad to be able to participate with the others in this Notebook entry. You can visit The Simple Woman's blog

Oh my Gosh Cora,
You have taken the most incrediable

How enchanting!

Cora, I had to return and tell you about your crafting on your post. If you are making your angels, YOU ARE definately BUSY! You are too good at them to not say you are crafting!

Huggies, cyndi

Cora from Nelia's Primitive Place said...

Thank you for your comment, Toni! It is amazing that God would provide for us as He does!!!

Cyndi, I didn't shoot that video. Wish I did!!! But that scene could be multiplied a million times over under my feeder. Titmice, cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers, towhees, thrashers ---- they are all here with their little ones. The shelled sunflowers gets the job done the fastest!

I loved your post--I will have to participate in that one day. My husband loves birds. He knows them all by variety and is so kind to them. They do make the world a beautiful place to be. Have a great day. Julie

Is there anything so adorable as the excited way a baby bird flutters it's wings as Mom or Dad comes with dinner? I love that video!

I've been watching a similar show in my own yard all week with Cardinals, Bluejays, and Brown Thrashers. Mourning Doves will be added to the mix, as I know their babies will be leaving the nest soon, too. :-)

Wow! That is an awesome video! I can't seem to photograph birds. They always run off!
