Wild Bird Wed.

Linking up with Stewart here for wild bird Wed.,share your backyard birds with people all over the world. 

These pictures were from Feb.2014 in the midst of a snowstorm. I am not sure which wood warbler this little one is at the feeder.
I have lost all my pictures in my back-up drive, well, let`s just say my brother is trying to get them back,he says there is like 400,000 on there,but I can`t believe that. I wonder if I can get my blog published in a book so I can have alot of them here in my hands,has anyone ever done this?

Sat.`s Critters/Otterbein Open House

Linking up with Eileen for Sat`s critters here:

My granddaughter & I got lost finding the Otterbein farm & on the road we accidently went down we saw these awesome vultures cleaning up a kitty who got hit on the road. I don`t remember seeing the black-faced with white legs,but perhaps they all have white legs,must look it up.

one is not like the others

poor little guy lost his mom
Savannah & I
taking dust baths

just loved all the critters here, & the homemade food was divine.

Greasing the Griswolds

In many shamanic societies,if you came to a medium person complaining of being disheartened,dispirited,or depressed,they would ask you 4 questions :
"When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing?When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?"
Gabrielle Roth

My sweet granddaughter stays with me some weekends & about a month ago I was teaching her more about sewing, she did really well even though I was mentally cursing the pattern. As we were working ,she says," Nana,do you feel like listenning to music?" I abruptly said,"no." But this child totally gets me,it was not ,can I ,let`s listen,but do you FEEL like listenning?

In the almost 2 years that my husband passed, this house has not gotten much of a clean-up, the basics get done, animals cared for, but the cobwebs were growing, my friends would do the walk-through to look at my "stuff" , collections of stuff my husband & I would gather on our flea market trips . He got into the iron skillets, wanting every number of the griswold,often ordering them from ebay.I have the best of friends. They never say anything,check on me,& offer to help me.But most things I just have to get through myself. 

That weekend when Savannah went home,I got the cd/radio out,dusted it off, put on the music ,& danced around my kitchen cleaning, giving the old wood cookstove a cleaning , & the items I had on it & started on the many plates I have hanging on the wall. I`ll soon get all of those salt & pepper shakers down...but I believe that I am on my way to living again.
Simon contentedly laying in my way as I dance around him...guess I will have to lay some tile down on the places my hubby never finished

The mushroom salt & peppers can`t be washed,they are paper machie`

This is another quote I found, it suits me,not sure of the author...
This may not be cast iron,but it is heavy,guess you could put a tealight inside
"I still get very high & very low in life daily. But I have finally accepted the fact that sensitive is just how I was made,that I don`t have to hide it,& I don`t have to fix it,I am not broken."
This cricket is cast iron,not sure what it was used for
