|Yup, it's really that blue!|
|Look Ma' no snow!|
Last weekend, having survived the deep freeze that set upon us, we had what I like to call a "Mutual of Omaha" moment. (I think they used to sponsor those wildlife shows way back in the 1970's.) We've had two hawks flying about, looking for a snack and scaring our little birds. Last weekend the smaller hawk caught one of our blue jays, which was very sad, but also interesting in a "Circle of Life" kind of way. (Yes, cue Elton John, again!) I have pictures (not gory):
|"Nothing to see here." He seems to be saying.|
|We think it's a "Broad Winged Hawk" which would be very unusual for this time of year.|
We completed another cake, but I've declared that I'm off the professional cake band wagon. It's just too stressful trying to work full time and make these creations on the side. (I'm still doing cakes for friends on a cake by cake basis...see what I did there! Punny!) Can you handle more photos?
As you can all see, I've shamelessly added my book to the blog. This is on the advice of my marketing specialist. I get many random hits from strangers looking for things like textured wallpaper, road warriors and renovation information. Perhaps the odd one might be interested in my book as well. Granted, it isn't written in the whimsical fashion that I do this blog, but I think you'd know we're one and the same, at least as far as writing goes. Janette has requested that I post my face here, so I'm being accommodating and posting a horrible picture of me. (No make up or anything and taken with my computer camera...so be prepared!) In my defense, I've just come back from working out, which explains the pig tails. And yes, that is a Vancity shirt...my lips seem to be missing again.
Well, that's all there is from our little island, at least for now. Ron and the squirrel continue to knock heads, I continue to think about writing, without really getting around to it and the world turns on it's axis. Be well!
