What a Gift



I think we're seeing a theme...the child is in this new phase where he'll fall asleep anywhere if he's tired. It's cracking me up.

Quotable Scout

She seemed glad to see me when I appeared in the kitchen, and by watching her I began to think there was some skill involved in being a girl. -Chapter 12

It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived. -Chapter 11

"It's not time to worry yet"

It took reading the first pharagraph to know that I would love this book.

Here's a sound-bite sample:

"First of all," he said, if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.--"
"Sir?"
"--until you climb into his skin and walk around in it."

ok, i'm obsessed!





From collegiate athletics to bird-watching

A Great Blue Heron's like this shows up for my viewing pleasure almost daily. We have a wonderful view of open wetland habitat and I've found myself being quite taken with the birds... especially now that the snow has come and the colors of the birds against the white has made it a very enjoyable experience. The Blue Heron is very graceful, slow in movement, strong in the chest, and very stately. At the local feed store, mixed grain for the pheasants and wild game is distributed for free once the snow flies. This has brought an abundance of pheasants into view as they are constantly eating up the scratch. Their color is stricking, and I find myself having to pull away from the window in order to get household chores complete. Thanks to my dad for encouraging me to get them some winter snacks. It has become highly entertaining to me.
For those that don't know, bird watching is considered a sport.
P.S. There are other birds that have attached themselves to the feed as well. I'll keep you posted when I can figure out what they are, but take my word for it: they are very cute.
