Friday’s Hunt

Friday’s Hunt v1.17

This week we’re looking for Begins with Q, Week’s Favorite, and At Rest

This double-wedding ring Quilt was made by hubby’s maternal grandmother. She said it was to be given to her first grandchild that got married. Being the oldest sibling sometimes has its perks! My secret is out, I married him for the quilt.IMG_2779

My Week’s Favorite isn’t the best photo, but I  enjoyed watching a pair of American Robins gather mud and grass in tag-team fashion to build a nest. DSCN4065

The Blue Jay appears to be At Rest in the Vitex, probably waiting for someone to fill the peanut feeder. DSCN4051I’ll link up to Eden Hills blog before the cut-off, but we have a birthday girl to celebrate until then!

Share Your World – 2016 Week 16

Share Your World

Once again, it is question and answer time with Cee! She reminds us: With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world and which may not always match our reality. I hope you’ll share your answers, too!

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather wear: glasses or contacts?  Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?
I wear contact lenses when driving, or out and about. No lenses needed at home – except for watching television – which is when I wear glasses. 

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?
This sign at the botanical garden suits me as I try to slow down and enjoy every moment.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?
The only difficulties that come to mind were the adjustments from a small elementary school to “junior high,” now known as middle school, and the move from there into the even-larger high school. 

Would you rather take a 1- or 2-week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?
Neither of those options appeal to me. I’d rather be on my own schedule, and preferably on dry land!

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 be an American with freedom to live life as I choose, I’m looking forward to Miss B turning three!

2. I had a couple visitors while I was out there, too.


American Robin


Northern Mockingbird










3. Hubby moved the birdbaths to mow the lawn. I snapped a shot of Lady Mallard standing where the birdbath was supposed to be. 


4. Sunday afternoon we took a short drive. It looks like the fishing is good here. 


Two Great Egrets and a Great Blue Heron. There were two more egrets out of the frame.

5. Hubby’s coworkers gave him a gift card to a nice little bistro. We used it Sunday evening.
