I'm not a superstitious person,
but when Mr. Snowy Egret appeared on the front lawn, poking his head above the floral features,
I knew he was letting me know that it's going to be a good weekend.
I'm going to believe him.

Have a breathtaking weekend.  
Let's meet back here Monday, shall we, and see what sewing plans everyone has for the week.

  1. What an amazing picture you captured! We will enjoy our weekend- football practice, church, and my nephew's first birthday party.

  2. That is an incredible picture!!! do you see those kinds of birds often where you live?

  3. Palak--yes! He (she?) usually lives in the pond across the street, so it was a treat to see him taking a stroll, admiring the flowers ;)

  4. I just have to tell you how much I enjoy your blog! Even though I don't know you, I feel like I have a lot in common with you! I love to sew (although I don't do it nearly as often as you do, sadly!), I'm LDS as well, AND I live in Florida, too! (Naples) I'm a native of Utah, but have fallen in love with Florida's birds. They're amazing, don't you think? And Egrets are probably my all-time favorites (although--forgive me--but I think the Snowy has yellow feet, so your gorgeous photo must be a Great Egret. Oh, so beautiful!) And I know what you mean about thinking it must be a great weekend after sighting a special bird or animal. I promise I'm not superstitious, either, but I couldn't help feeling lucky after seeing a mother and baby dolphin swimming incredibly close to the shore over the weekend. It was a beautiful day indeed...

    Anyway, thank you for all your inspiring posts! You seem like an amazing woman and mother. ;-)

  5. Stephanie--ah. Thank you for the correction! I didn't know an egret's legs were so revealing ;) Good to know. I do have such incredibly smart readers. And I do love when I see a little pod of dolphins swimming along the shoreline. :)

  6. I just found your blog and fell in love with your blog name haha.

    I'm trying to follow but I don't see an email subscription?


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
