It's so good to see the sun shining this morning. I don't mind a little rain, but I really need the sun to be motivated to get outside and do things. Yesterday, we did not go out walking, but we did walk our legs off at two different flea markets. So I guess that counts as exercise.
We didn't buy too much stuff, only a couple of tee shirts. The afternoon was spent watching a few episodes of "Project Runway" (last years episodes) that I had taped to DVD for Audrey. Just before dinner time, we went to the supermarket for a few items plus some prized "Stouffers Macaroni and Cheese". Nobody does it like Stouffers.
Tootsie was having quite a bit of difficulty with her walking yesterday and last night. I'm hoping that it will be improved somewhat today. We want to go out in a while and look for places that might have birds. This year, the birds are so skittish. Usually, they are everywhere.
I think today we will also have us some good old fashioned fast food. My mouth has been watering for a burger. Plus, sometimes there are lots of birds hanging around the fast food places. A very good reason for us to enjoy a burger.
One of the pretty sights that you see all through the South is Spanish Moss hanging from a lot of the trees or draping on fences and walls. Spanish Moss is actually an epiphylitic plant related to the pineapple. It forms hair-like tufts of gray green strands up to 25 feet long on the trunks and branches of trees in the Southern US and West Indies. It's not a parasite, but draws its food and water from the air.
Here is a pretty photo of a tree with lots of Spanish Moss draped all through it, and a couple of close ups of the moss itself. I find it quite fascinating.
Today, Su and I will be posting our previews and links for the first two parts of this month's collab kit "Sing A Song Of Spring". Here is my preview and the download links.
Su has not feeling very well lately and may be a little late posting her parts. If they are not up when you stop by, do stop back later. Don't forget to leave a thank you for her.
That it's for this morning. Now I think I'll rustle up some breakfast. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
