Wild Bird Wednesday #258

Wild Bird Wednesday–Rufous-sided Towhee, juvenile 

It took a couple days of brief sightings to ID this new visitor to our yard. Finally, I got a glimpse of its left side, exposing a tiny patch of feathers that gave it away–a juvenile Rufous-sided Towhee.

Here is a picture (not a very good one) of another that visited in 2015. There seems to be some confusion regarding the Eastern Towhee and Rufous-sided Towhee, whether they are actually two different towhees, or one and the same.

I’m late to the “Share Your World” party, again. We were quite late getting home Sunday. As we neared the tunnel, it became evident three lanes of traffic were merging into one. People were losing patience, three met by accident…Tuesday I met a friend for lunch and visited an antique shop. Hubby woke me this morning to tell me the hot water heater was out of order. Thankfully, ours is in the garage. He took a personal day from work and donned his plumber’s hat.

What do you do when you’re not working? If you are retired, what do you do that is not part of your regular daytime routine?
Lately, blogging slipped from my regular routine, so it’s nice to catch up when I can. I enjoy online workshops for mixed media art, card making, jewelry making.

What would you do if you won the lottery?
That would require a good deal of thought, to use it wisely. 

What makes you laugh the most?
Two shows, “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

What is your biggest pet peeve with modern technology?
Trying to maintain internet security. 

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful we had time with the family; I look forward to progress on our living room project.

Friday’s Hunt

This week the search is on for Starts with W, Week’s Favorite, and Pastel. 

To save time, I’m sharing a “one-shot does all.” 

The pastel green fennel in the background is wet from the rain, and this Monarch butterfly on milkweed is my Week’s Favorite.

Spending time with family this weekend, so I’ll be by to visit your blogs the first of the week. Have a great weekend!

Share Your World

Welcome to my world:

DSCN5118

Once again it is time to SHARE YOUR WORLD! Here are Cee’s questions, let’s see if we can answer them! 

What’s your strongest sense?
NONsense.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)
Hmm, that could be a different identity for each day of the week. Today, I’ll be Happy.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?
I’d like to go back to when I had eyebrows. Not sure when they disappeared…

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]
This is a tough one, I’m still thinking…

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful to have a wonderful church and pastoral staff; looking forward to family time.

I hope you’ll share your answers, too!
