Happy Thankful Thursday!


 Happy Thankful Thursday!

 "Mornings are like nature in Spring. Humming with the sound of life."  When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.  😊  


Think Happy, Be Happy!!  

The Cardinal's crest seem extra perky on this day.  


 After many cloudy days,  I am thankful to see pretty blue skies.

 Below one of the tall pine trees seen on our fire road walk, a  jet contrail and the moon.







 Maybe the wind on this day was blowing the Cardinal's crest sideways?




 Early morning view of the sky and contrails.



I watch this Great Blue Heron standing in a tree in the forest across from our driveway. It was a cold and windy day, I was surprised the heron did not move much. 




I am always thankful to find good books to read.

Here is a list of books I read last week:
Play Dead...Andy Carpenter # 6 by David Rosenfelt..this is a fun series, I enjoy this author's humor.
Never Tell.... DD Warren # 10 by Lisa Gardner
The Beekeeper's Apprentice.. Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes #1 by Laurie R. King

All of these are great books, what are you reading?

"You carry the passport to your own happiness." Diane von Furstenburg

I am always thankful for your visit and comments.
Live simple and be happy!  😊 Spread that happiness!

  5. Cardinals have been singing for a few days here and Red-winged Blackbirds have returned, and I heard the first male singing in the marsh yesterday. Spring is here whatever the calendar says!

  17. The cardinal is having a bad hair day...very pretty color on him! They have brightened up getting ready for the nesting season...I am not reading any novel at the present, but I am enjoying reading everyone's blogs and watching some you tubes in the evening when it's time to settle in and be quite and calm.

  27. Hi Eileen, the cardinals crest does appear to be off kilter a bit. :-) But, a beautiful red pop of color in the not yet fully developed color spectrum of full blown spring. Happy Thursday!

  32. Lovely shots! I've seen a heron in a tree but I didn't get any pictures of it. Usually I get pictures of them fishing because they hold still.
