These picture's were taken a couple of weeks ago at a friend's house for her daughter's graduation from nursing school. Her property is so beautiful and you can always find something that is photo worthy. And of course my grandchildren were running around and I can never resist taking their pictures.

There was also a hawk flying overhead on her property, with two other birds chasing it. I'm sure that the hawk had stolen either eggs or babies from a nest. Hawk's are always flying around there. My friend said that they have to keep track of both of her daughter's dog's when they are visiting because the hawk likes to zero in on the little dog's and swoop down on them. They are beautiful bird's though.


For all of my bird friends out there, I would love to know what this little guy is. It likes to hang out on a northern crabapple tree in front of my condo window. It just chirps and sings and whenever I hear it, I go right to my window to be greeted with it's sweet little face. I recently got a new lens for my camera. With that I was able to get these shots.

I would love to hear from you........comments are very welcome.

Today marks the five year anniversary that you passed away. I can hardly believe that I have managed without you. You remain so close in my thoughs and even closer in my heart. I carry the love we shared within me. And know that someday we will meet again. You are dearly loved and sorely missed by your children and grandchildren. We keep you alive in our we remember you and your sense of humor, your love of life and family. Your silly made-up songs and crazy ramblings bring smiles to our faces and chuckles from within as we recall them. To say your name is pure love. And tomorrow is another day.

To My Beloved by Celia Wenig

You had a talent for bringing special meaning to life,
It was such a pleasure to be your wife,
You helped me to grow and to realize
The fullness and the beauty in our lives.

Every day I counted my blessings.
Then God called, and you went away
Out of this world to a brighter day.
Suddenly my life of gladness
Turned to utter sadness.

My grief wears me down, I shed so many tears,
As I recall your love and devotion through the years.
For your sake and in memory of your name,
I pray for strength to do things the same.

To reach out, to fill the hours with useful ways,
To comfort, to cheer and have no more empty days.
I try to console myself -- it was God's greater plan,
So I must accept it, if I can.

You moved away to His splendid home above,
If there is life after death,
I know you will be waiting there for me, With love.

Though Heaven and Earth divide us,
and the distance is so great,
I count my blessings for the years you were my mate.
I will live my life remembering, while you wait, slumbering.
My beloved, may you rest in peace.
