Cloud Face

 I looked at the cloud.
It was looking back at me.
Eyes, mouth; Do you see?



Share Your World–May 22, 2017

Share Your World

Cee’s questions for this week…and my answers. Come share YOUR world

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?
really want to get on the treadmill, but I’d much rather blog. 

How often do you get a haircut?
Every four to five weeks. I’m wearing it shorter now, and the curls starts to get unruly if they aren’t tamed.

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?
Crossword, though I enjoy jigsaw puzzles, too, especially if working them with the grandkids.

How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.
I’ve lived in two cities, five different residences, total. 

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Thankful for nice weather last week and the opportunity to get out and walk with my (recently repaired) camera in hand, running into a friend from writers group at the botanical garden,  and I found some new capris–that FIT! Three that had seen better days needed to be replaced, but that brand/style is no longer available.

 Looks like rain in the forecast (thunderstorm right now) so I’ll look forward to reading–instead of weeding!

Double-crested Cormorant–Immature


I stopped by the Double-crested Cormorant “hang out” when visiting Norfolk Botanical Garden. There weren’t as many as in this post. Their double crest is only seen on adult birds during breeding season. I found the feathered-wing patterns interesting on this juvenile, as the adults are solid black. 

Cormorants differ from other water birds, having less preening oil on their feathers. That is why they are often seen perched near water with wings expanded to facilitate drying. These “water-logged” feathers help them stay submerged as they glide underwater in search of fish, their diet staple.

Friday’s Hunt v3.19

Friday’s Hunt

Gee, time flies when you’re having fun! This week, we’re hunting for Starts with S, Week’s Favorite, and Family.

S is for having a seed stuck on one’s beak. This is my favorite, the weather hasn’t cooperated for much picture taking this week–since I got my camera back! And this little House Finch is one of three new family members visiting the feeder.
