Good morning. Tis a gorgeous sunny day here in my little part of the world, and there's a tiny breeze keeping it quite comfy. I'd have been here posting much earlier but Joe came by early to tell me that we have company high up in our trees. So, of course, I grabbed my camera and went outside to take some photos.
High up in one of the tall trees in front of the house sat a huge hawk, just taking in all the sights and looking for his breakfast. Here's a photo I took to show how high up this bird is. I put in an arrow to show you where the bird is sitting, and then I enlarged that area to make it easier to see the bird.
It really is quite a majestic looking hawk. Sitting way up there gives him a super view of all small critters that might make a tasty meal. Here are a few more shots of our guest.
It must have had something specific in mind for breakfast, because several small birds were able to fly by unharmed. Nearby, a tiny sparrow sits on a the edge of one of our roofs and calls out a warning to his family and friends. Such a brave little bird.
Up high in another tree, sits a very brave young blue jay trying to alert his family to the nearby danger. I've placed an inset in the photo so that you can see this little blue jay better. These are very brave little birds.
I just looked outside to see if our guest hawk was still here, but he must have found a meal because he is gone. At least now we can feed our little birds. For obvious reasons, we don't put out any food for the birds while the hawk is here.
Friday, I meant to post a kit for you, but I forgot. So, I'll post it here today. This is an old kit that I had made five years ago as part of a collaboration. This is just my part of the kit. I hope you can use it.

I'm not sure what Pogo and I will be up to today, but maybe I'll go grocery shopping this afternoon. I haven't decided yet. although I probably should get it done. This is going to be a busy week. The company that supplies my oxygen concentrator is coming out tomorrow with a portable machine that they say will make me happy. That remains to be seen.
Also this week, the contractors will be here, along with a police detail, to resurface the end of my driveway. In between all this activity, I need to get back to my "clean out" project. Well, I've finished my coffee, and now it's time to get busy around here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
