She loves to perform, but gets so incredibly nervous to do it. I am so proud of this little lady and the dreams she has for herself. Dream big, little one. The sky is the limit for you! And Mommy will always be there to be your cheerleader!!
... And on the 8th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
One Maid-a-Milking Costume...
Made from 2 thrift store shirts
a thrifted curtain valance,
and a little bit of
My youngest and I have spent the majority of the day on the couch, both under the weather. We have had a several very good furry nurses. Gravy (because she is gray...) is such a sweetheart, cuddled up between us, giving us love. Now if she only knew how to make some soup....
Up on the sketch pad is a "maid-a-milking" dress...
Do I HAVE to make it? Nope.
Would I much rather do that than housework? Yup.
If you need me, I'll be here transforming some old shirts into a dress and avoiding the dishes in my sink...
... And it was the Best Christmas Pageant Ever!!
(Despite what this donkey may be thinking....)
Sorry, but not sorry, you are getting another Bald Eagle photo.
When I was young, Bald Eagles were headed the way of the Dodo Bird and the Tasmanian Tiger. I NEVER saw them anywhere other than in a zoo.
So, nowadays, I get a little gaga over the ability to see them a short distance from my home.
Fierce and beautiful.
I could honestly watch them for hours.
"One can never consent to creep when one feels and impulse to soar."
Two days ago, as I pulled out of my driveway, I thought I saw a flash of white on a large bird disappearing into the trees by the river.
I drove into town today and as I crossed the bridge, I thought I saw a Turkey Vulture on the partially frozen river. Disappointed it wasn't a Bald Eagle, I still whipped an U-turn, hit my hazard lights, grabbed my camera and fired off some shots. Through the zoom lens I realized it was in fact a Baldy!
I loaded the images up to edit them, and imagine my surprise to realize that there were in fact TWO of them in the image! Zooming in 400%, I can see the distant eagle is eating something... a hunk of meat with an exposed bone. The front one stands guard.
Today was a fabulous day to be intentfully watchful, with a camera ready!
