Thursday Three 4/24/14

So I have skipped the past couple weeks of my Thursday Three posts and I must apologize. Last Thursday I had just returned from a trip up north to visit family and hadn't been totally unpacked and in the right frame of mind to post and the previous Thursday, was my first full day visiting my family so I was too busy to post. But I am here now, finally able to post again!

Three random facts about me right now:
  1. I LOVE, love, love to hang clothes outside on a breezy, sunny day! 
  2. I already took like a hundred photos today and it's not even noon yet!
  3. I was excited to see the bluebirds return this morning. They built a nest then left for about a week. Hopefully they're back to stay!
Happy Thursday!

April - 4 on the 4th

It's time for 4 on the 4th again so here are the four photos I took yesterday, clockwise from the top left:
  1. This is only the second time a House Finch has visited our finch feeder since we hung it a few days ago. We've been wondering where they've been hiding. Good to see them back! But best of all, earlier today we finally saw two Goldfinches at the feeder and that's even more wonderful! 
  2. Ron is making some adjustments to the Purple Martin house to get it ready to hoist up the pole. Almost there! 
  3. This poor Robin slammed into our dining room sliding glass door yesterday and hit it so hard that he/she pretty much got the breath knocked right out of it. It was stunned and just stayed in that same position for about an hour then flew away like nothing ever happened!
  4. Here's a pic of me reading one of my favorite childhood books - Just Mrs. Goose. I think I read every single one of the books in this series probably a hundred times while I was growing up. I loved those books! I recently purchased a reprint of this book so that I could read it to my grandchildren during one of our Skype visits but decided to read it just one more time before then. 
Hope you've enjoyed my photos today. Have a great day!

Thursday Three 4/3/14

Wow, a whole week went by again already? Amazing how time flies when you're having fun and I AM having fun! It's finally springtime with warmer days and the sun is shining today in between the clouds! So this will be a quick post so I can get back outside and enjoy the day before the rain arrives.

Here's three random facts about me today:

  1. I love sitting out on my deck watching all the bird activity.
  2. I can now sustain 5 miles on the treadmill with no problems! Yay!
  3. I am totally in love with the new Picture My Life kits from Close to my Heart.
Happy Thursday!
