Found!

Finally, something noteworthy of a post! 

To make a short story long, I stepped out to the backyard for a few minutes to get an idea of which coat to wear to walk to the polling place…

…59 with a light breeze. I checked feeders and added seed. Then…

…I realized it was time to clear the fennel jungle. This is what I found–five shivering Black Swallowtail ūüźõ. Oh, that was just me shivering! Yesterday was near 80F.

Have a lovely day!

Share Your World–October 2, 2017

Share Your World

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in¬†Share Your World,¬†and I’ve missed you! Here are Cee’s questions for this week, and¬†my answers.¬†I hope you’ll share your world, too!¬†

If you were given the opportunity to ride in a helicopter, would you go?
Yes! We did avail ourselves of this opportunity on a trip through Myrtle Beach, SC. We chose the least expensive option, just to try it out. There’s no lying about one’s weight–it is required to step onto their scale. This was our view from the air on an overcast day, which delayed our ride until it cleared to a certain point.

What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, seafood, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts)
Nuts, cheese, Greek yogurt, eggs, legumes, and chicken are my favorite sources of protein.

What would be your preference: Awake before dawn, at dawn, or awake before noon?
Looks to me like all three choices are before noon–LOL! However, my night-owl tendencies nullify the first two choices, most of the time.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
A ray of sunshine peeking through the leaves of the oak highlighted the bunny and inspired this photo.

My favorite car, ’92 Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo. It was mine for 16 years and still holds a piece of my heart.¬†This is not my photo, it was provided to me after restoration by new owner.¬†

I keep looking Outside to see if the hummingbird is still here.
