"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly. "One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."

Tea and Bird Watching
Just a few days ago it was cloudy, snowy, and wintery. The bird feeders had not been filled yet and all my feathered friends were left to fend for themselves and find cover within the conifers. Must change that!
Conditions are much better for them today. The feeders are filled, they're happy, and so are we as we watch them while enjoying tea and scones.
Now, instead of the lemon curd, I have lemon glaze on mine, since becoming vegan, butter is not an option.
"I can see you, can you see me? The little chickadee on the left blends nicely into the brush. The cardinal takes center stage. The beauty of nature.
I have a variety of hobbies and like so many others I multi-task a lot! I enjoy the time that I spend decorating my home, knitting and weaving with the wool that I spin, creating with cloth and paper, and all the little side activities that improving these skills bring to the fore. I'm a wife, a mom, and the keeper of the home. Life is good.
