It is hard to believe August is almost half over. The days continue to fly by. There is not much happening here, we are still keeping our distance and wearing our face mask. Our walks have been local, on the fire roads and to the lake. Can I say, I am grinning and bearing this new version of blogger? How do you like the new blogger? Please ignore any errors, lol.
My Skywatching is from my deck, yard and driveway.
" I am grateful, I am happy."
Bird watching is from my windows or on our deck. I am seeing 5-6 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds zooming around my yard. I have 3 feeders that I seem to refill every other day. Seeing these hummingbirds in my yard just make me happy.
Thankful for flowers, they make me happy. Hubby had the nice suggestion to buy flowers for the vase we keep on the dining table. So every couple of weeks, we change out the flowers for a new arrangement. These are from the local Weis food store, I am not sure what they are. Maybe Freesia?
|Nature scenes from our fire road walk, the round spider webs, mushrooms, Acadian Flycatcher and a Red-spotted Purple butterfly.|
I often see these round spider webs during our walks, they remind me of a CD or DVD.
Backyard sky, sunset looking pretty in pink.
I am thankful for the simple pleasure of a beautiful sunset.
" Make time to enjoy the simple things in life." Warm tea and a good book are a few of my simple things.
Recently, I heard about a tasty honey called Orange Blossom Honey. Apparently bees in Florida and California visit the orange blossoms which in turn flavor the honey comb with a sweet citrus flavored honey. I like adding a little honey to my tea, right now I am using a local Maryland clover honey. I ordered the Orange Blossom Honey from Amazon, I am looking forward to trying this honey. Do you buy local honey? It is best pure and raw, it has health benefits, antioxidants, nutrients to help promote digestive health and help with your pollen seasonal allergies.
I am thankful for all the ebooks I find online from my local library.
These are my latest books:
The American Agent by Jacqueline Winspear, it is # 15 in the Maisie Dobbs series. I really enjoyed this series, I hope she does another Maisie Dobbs, I am a fan.
Unseen by Karin Slaughter, # 7 in the Will Trent series
All Shall be Well by Deborah Crombie, # 2 in the Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James series.
I am thankful hubby and I are remaining virus free. This Covid virus is not just going to go away. I hope everyone take care and stays safe.
Live simple and be happy! 😊 Take care, keep smiling!
