Ohhhhhh...A Little Birdie Told Me!

      YAY! It's Friday!!!....YAY! My head cold is clearing up!...except for a nasty cold sore on my lip now...UGH!...And YAY!! I see birdies! ^_^
      Even though the weather is in the single digits here in Massachusetts, the backyard birdies have decided that they want to play! :-) I'm getting cardinals and chickadees...non-stop!...and I'm loving the view! :-]
      I'm not the only person with birdies in my view though. Case in point, don't you just love that mobile in the header photo?!! ^_^ I don't know how any baby would be able to close their eyes with all that 'pretty' floating overhead!!
      And how could any little one even eat his or her lunch, with these little birdies to distract them?! :-) ...

      It's a lunch bag and a conversation starter all in one!! ^_^ ..."Wat r wu havin' 4 wunch?!" LOL

      Now comes the real reason I'm doing this post about birdies! :-)) It's all about a hawk!!...

      Isn't he BEAUTIFUL?!!!!...

      The reason I have hawks on my mind this morning is because of an Etsy convo I had with CHO yesterday! If you remember, I shared her cute twig and birdie earrings on the blog yesterday...HERE.
      I let her know how much I appreciated her cute birdie earrings, and in the conversation back to me she proceeded to tell me about the hawk she has in her backyard!!!...Yes, a hawk! :-) ... Then she told me that while she never sees him, her neighbor took pictures of him for her! :-) And she shared them with me...and said I could share them with you!! ^_^ ...

      Ahhhhhh!...He is beautiful!!!! :-) ...

      But as beautiful as he is, I'm glad he isn't in my backyard!...Why, you ask?!...Because she proceeded to tell me that he eats all of their morning doves!! O_O ... YIKES!!!...Think what a feast he would be having with my cardinals, black-capped chickadees, blue jays, robins, sparrows, etc...!!!...*gulp!*
      In the case with this 'pretty birdie', I think I prefer to admire him from a far! :-) ... And since she lives in Canada...a good ways away from here!...I think I'm good! ^_^ ... BIG THANKS, CHO!!! ♥
      Okay, now I'm off to make some last minute 'Virtual Date Night' plans. ^_^ I have no idea where we're going, but considering that I've been sick all week, we BETTER go somewhere!!!!!...just saying!! LOL

      Did you notice how I didn't mention the snowstorm that's coming by Monday?!...The snowstorm that's suppose to drop at least six more inches of snow on us?!...The snowstorm that may be putting my doctor's appointment next week in jeopardy?!...Hmmmmm...maybe that's why I didn't mention it!! LOL...Have a good weekend, Everybody! :-)

How Can You Be So Positive

"How can you be so positive
with everything so bad?
When folks are so unkind
and all those doctors make you mad?"

"It's easy!" I assure them.
'Cuz one thing makes it okay.
I wake up every morning,
and I'm breathing every day!

When I can't move a muscle
and can barely lift my head,
I think of all the folks I've known
who now are gone, yes, dead!

No matter what my problem is,
and if I stand or lay,
I'm thankful that my mind still works
and I'm breathing every day!

So how am I so positive,
When things sometimes seem bleak?
It's easy, 'cuz my breathing
keeps on going every week!

Oh yes, I have a choice!
I can be miserable and whine;
Be mean to folks around me,
Be demanding and unkind.

But who would make that choice,
when there's a better way to be?
I mean, who's breathing every day
and writing poems?...ME!


  1. If you're not mentioning the snow storm I won't either. Or the fact we're getting it first! Nope, not a word! I will say that I love the owl sandwich sack! My Granddaughter would flip over it! Have a great date...some place warm perhaps? Then you can take your mind off the snow storm that won't be mentioned...nope, not a word!

    1. Snowstorm?! O_O ... What snowstorm???!!! LOL
