{easy like a} Sunday Morning:
Looked up

Turns out my Sunday morning shot didn't take much looking into the the sky after all. I mean, I started to look up but my eyes were not quite up to the sky before I spotted this...
and much to my surprise...
these were inside.  
Beautiful aren't they?
Mrs. Robbin decided the arbor where my mom and dad grow their grapes was the perfect spot to raise her family.  I didn't see her when we were there, but my dad says she is a busy lady always looking in at her eggs or sitting in her nest.  I wish I could have met her too this morning.

What did looking up into the sky turn up for you?

{easy like a} Sunday Morning:
Look up to the sky

I don't know about where you live, but here in Halifax, Nova Scotia we are having a really gray and rainy May. So much so that I forget what it is like to see the sun shinning and feel warmth from the sun's glow.

How about this Sunday morning, we all look up to the sky for our morning photo?

Taking a little blog hiatus. Please feel free to continue to post your Sunday Morning links on here. I will be leaving this open for the next few weeks.

Like A Monkey In A Cage

Kokology anyone?

*Your first time playing?  Read the link below for rules, tips and hints to the game

  • Be prepared 
  • Keep an open mind
They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, and that is true of animal as well as man. When you look into the eyes of a friendly dog, it seems to be begging you to play, while if you stare into the eyes of a cat, it looks back with cool indifference. Animals have feelings and personalities just like humans, and if we would only heed our eyes, we'd see how close our worlds really are.

You are strolling through a zoo, watching the animals in their cages. You stop in front of a single monkey in its cage and your eyes meet. The expression is its eyes seems to be communicating something. What is the monkey trying to tell you?

*You can leave a comment with your answers or keep them to yourself  - it's up to you.

Alive with Life

5 AM the forest at the back of my property is alive with bird calls.  Sometimes I lay there and  imagine I have a rain forest in my back yard.

I wonder how many species of birds are back there?
  1. Robin
  2. Woodpecker
  3. Crow
  4. Mourning Dove
  5. Blue Jay
  6. Chickadee
  7. Ruby-throated Hummingbird
  8. Sparrow
  9. Finch
  10. Loon
What bird species are in your backyard?

I feel like I'm rusting. I think the endless fog and rain outside has seeped into my head making all the gears and pulleys seize up.

I have had a few things to post but haven't been able to assemble anything coherent in weeks. Guess that is what weeks of gray sky, fog and rain will do to a person. But here is a brief rundown:

  • A prom dress fiasco.
  • Upset teen.
  • Brand new ball gown for sale (size 12, pink) if anyone is the market.
  • My memory is shit.
  • Puppies are exhausting.
