I took a walk on Saturday & actually did this challenge!
I love looking at trees! I have noticed quite a few trees that have fallen from storms, etc. that are growing fungi. always interesting to look at the various fungi growing on the dead tree trunks. I also like to look for bird's nests & squirrel nests. currently the leaves aren't in but a lot of trees have seeds growing on them (hence the high tree pollen count lately). I keep looking for birds too!! the red winged black bird males are really out there & defending their territory!! sometimes I will hear a call I can't identify & will look for the bird!! I feel like I should wear binoculars all the time as I can't find the bird I am hearing!!
today we've had rain & such a gloomy day, windy & colder! tonight it's supposed to get down to the 30's!! let's hope we don't get snow! I did not walk today due to the weather. I ended up talking on the phone for an hour with my cousin & then with one of my brothers. a girlfriend suggested we pick a time to just remember my mother. I picked 9 pm tomorrow, Monday & a 10 min. segment of time. I let my cousin & siblings know about it. interestingly it sparked a couple phone calls & texts! there are a lot of family members that are out of town/state & I thought this would be a nice way to honor my mother. I told everyone they could pray, meditate or just think of good memories, whatever they need to do!
thanks to Christine for our pact!! day 5 has come!!
thanks to Viki for her encouragement!!
have a great week everyone!! ♥ ♥ ♥ April 20, 2015 at 8:26 UTC
I had to modify this a bit for my back!
a very nice day today. I enjoyed my walk on the trail. there are so many red wing black bird males staking out their territories!! lots of robins too. the cardinals are very vocal in my yard & out on the trail! I am enjoying the Canada geese, mallards & wood ducks by the marsh & in the pond out back.
I filled bird feeders today. I am slowly working on washing windows. just a few each day! it's been in the low 70's, so nice to have windows open!! a low key day. my daughter & her family are visiting relatives in Wisconsin. we do miss our granddaughter!
Christine tomorrow we cross the finish line!! & get to add up those mega points!!
thanks to Viki, Vivian, Donnie & Guidel for the encouragements!! I hit the jackpot today!! ♥
have a wonderful sunday!! ♥ ♥ ♥ April 19, 2015 at 5:42 UTC
my love of animals has led me to own our 2 cats currently & multiple pets in the past of fur, finned & feathered varieties. it has also led me to work in my present job caring for pets!! I don't know if you can say it's a strength or skill but it is a big part of my life!! I also extend this out into nature, appreciating birds & other critters out there when I walk & in my yard!! I enjoy feeding the birds & other animals who can access my feeders!
I do have to write an addendum to the above, there is one creature that I won't befriend, it's the mosquito!! as I walked one dog around a marsh area on the trail, a swarm of mosquitoes followed us I got my first mosquito bite of the year!!
pact partner Christine we are on day 3!! ♥
thanks to Guidel, Rachel & Rita

I just made some peanut butter, oatmeal & chocolate chip cookies. hmmm some protein & good oatmeal :-) I may have those & I also have some kind granola bars too :-)
I tend to take one of the granola bars when I am walking dogs & I also like to have water along too!! tomorrow I am walking dogs & have an acupuncture appt so I will be in my car on the road a lot!!
in case any of you are wondering, the dog walking is going well. we did have one dog who died & I miss her :-( we will be having people going on vacation this summer so I know we will be getting busy with vacation care!! that usually means cats.
over Easter I took care of Molly & Winston, 2 grey with black striped cats. I had to give molly pills in those pill pockets you can get at the pet store. she was very good & docile which was good! my poor boss didn't want to do pills with a cat as she had a bad experience. fortunately she is an easy cat to medicate :-) Winston was my supervisor when I came over. he made sure I did the litter box & got the right food in the right bowls :-)
this summer I am hoping my granddaughter will join me once a week to help with the pets. she wants to get money for it! I promised to pay her :-)
Christine we have done day 2 :-) moving on to pact hump day!!
thanks to Guidel, Donnie & Rita for the encouragements!! you all were so nice to think of me!! ♥ ♥ ♥ April 17, 2015 at 4:12 UTC
thanks to Donnie & Guidel for their encouragements! :-)
my husband is a great one for lifting my mood. he has a wonderful sense of humor & positive outlook on life!!
my granddaughter tala is a sweetie. she is at that nice age where she is sweet, loving, appreciative & just a real joy to be around. it's nice at the age of 11 to have someone who loves you because you are her Nana ♥
for my 3rd person I just want to say friends in general who can make me smile, boost me up with support & encouragement! I am grateful for the friends I have made on this site! :-)
today was a walking the dogs day. perfect weather in the upper 60's & hit 73 by afternoon!! loving it!! my cats are enjoying the porch with me. the woodpeckers come to check out the suet & a cute chickadee was taking a bath in my bird bath! I could hear the cardinals in the trees out back singing away. ducks came to my corn feeder too! a lot going on in my back yard!
thanks to everyone who visits my posts!
Christine we have done day one of our back to back pact!! :-)

this pose I can do!! yay!!
we reached 70 today!! it was nice :-) I could wear my capri pants & sit on the porch & read again!!
I met an ex-co worker & her best friend for lunch at the good earth. we've been friends for 24 years from work!! it's one of my favorite restaurants as their food is organic & delicious!! they knew about my mother's passing. they had a nice card & a pot of orange tulips for me. that was so sweet! orange is my favorite color. my husband also put me on the prayer chain at church too which was nice.
I took a late walk on the trail. the stars were so clear!! it was nice :-) the frogs were so loud it was almost deafening!! I noticed some leaves popping out on some of the flowering bushes. & my hedges in front have buds now!! spring is coming!
have a great Wednesday everyone!
