The weeks are flying by. Our daffodils have decided that spring is already here, despite cold temperatures. The next couple of days are going to be cold and wet. I haven’t been doing a good job of taking my daily walk, but yesterday I woke up early and snuck out of the house. I walked to a little clearing on the property adjacent ours hoping to catch a glimpse of an “owl” that my kids say they have seen several times there during daylight hours. I walked into the clearing and looked up into the trees. I could see a very large feathered something high in the branches of one of them and I got pretty excited. It started flying from tree to tree and was joined by two other large birds that I hadn’t noticed at first. They were all making the same call, and did not sound like owls. I went home, looked it up, and figured out that it was a group of red shouldered hawks. That clearing must be their hang out. I’m going back today.
I hope you all have a happy Friday and a great weekend! I’m doing some rearranging around the house, and might embark on some furniture painting myself. It’s also time to start thinking about the garden.
Beginning tomorrow I will be hosting regular weekend giveaways again, so be sure to stop in.
p.s. I forgot to mention that thanks to all of you, I did win the Apartment Therapy contest for Best Family & Kids blog. Thank you so much for your support!
