I ACTUALLY MADE IT--

down to the dock today--
and sat on the bench and soaked up some sunshine!!!
I did the trail first--
Lots of dragonflies again--buzzin around--
and I seen one "3" times as large as this one --in greens and bright blues--
but he just wouldn't land so I could get his photo--boo!!!!

Seen this guy sitting here after I got down on the dock--
it looks like he is praying--
"Dear Lord--let that be the lady that feeds us!!"
and it was--
ended up with 2 of them--
but no birds--

I did hear a blue heron on the way down the ramp--
but then couldn't find him once I got down on the dock--
a bit later I looked over and there he was--
Sittin on this tree stump--
they miss the tree that hung over the water--
(some clean up crew cut it off and dragged it off--
how 'mean' of them!!)

a large boat on the other side of the river--

I so love it down there--and today the river was nice and calm--
and no  it is not really 'open' yet---but????
and some pretty white  flowers up my the end of the ramp--
and I seen lots of Rocky foot prints in the sand---

Enjoy the moments, di

WINNERS--

My day has some 'winner' in it--
First my Plan A actually worked out--
(that is a scary thought really!!)
and I got the tree set up-
fluffed out--
lights on it--
and garland on it--
Under the tree is the decorations--
for tomorrow--
My tradition is to  just enjoy the tree with the lights and garland for at least one day--
and I also fuss a bit here and there on the tree adjusting the lights and garland--
then we get to the serious part!!!!
Now over on the dinning room table is all this waiting for me--
I bought like 4 new tabletop trees to decorate this year--
Why--you ask???
have no idea--I just like little trees--I guess--
and it will be a 'guess' as to where they will go once I decorate them!!!
Got a couple strings of battery powered lights too--
hummm--wonder if I have enough batteries for them??????????

And I was a 'winner' on a recent blog site--
Over on "Welcome to Lavender Dreams--
and then this came in the mail today-
what a delightful book this one is--
so stop over and visit that Diane's blog to learn more about
Princess Sassy Pants,--
lavenderdreamstoo.blogspot.com

And I even got in some stitching time today--
This is block #11 on the Seasonal Wool bom--
block #12 came out today--so guess I better get busy with needle and thread--

LOOK WHO I SAW

today counting traffic--
He must of decided the other two 'birds' couldn't count correctly!!!!

Can you see that line of black bodies in the water??

they are some kind of duck, I believe and they must be having a party out there--
bet on the dinner menu it has 'fish'!!!

Did have a couple Blue Jays show up for a snack today--
this one looks like he is saying--"now be sure to get my good side??"
and we have a nice sized bush of these flowers right outside the front entrance--
the flowers are even more red that it looks here--

ON TODAY'S WALK

Around 3 pm this afternoon,
I took a walk down the trail--
and the first thing I seen was this 'pair'-
This street light shines over US 1 here --
which is a 6 lane highway--
so I wonder what these two where thinking--
Do you think they were counting cars, trucks, or semi's?????

and the dragon fly's are still out and about--
took me awhile to be able to take a photo of this guy --
but finally he landed long enough for a picture!!
Even though this group of mushrooms are on the way 'out'--
I still thought the color of this group was neat!!!
and we have sail boats on the river all day long--
this one was interesting in the fact that it had 3 sails!!!
and tonight--
neat cloud formations
 and neat colorings in them!!!

DOWN AT THE DOCK

And no--it is not really 'open'
I just know how to get around the closed sign--
as it really is safe to go down the ramp and be on the dock--
and that is all I am going to say on that matter--

Anyways--
seen lots down there today--
Called my friends and some came quickly--
on the right side of the railings--
and this one on the left side--
and a third one kept coming all the way down the ramp for peanuts!!!
In the water I seen this huge fish--
or was he a baby shark????
and in this photo--it almost looks like he might have a stingray in his mouth????


and seen Lurch as he flew by-
and out in the middle of the river--
a couple dolphins where playing--
and on the beach--
yep a bit of beach is showing now--
 Rocky left proof that she is still around--
(plus I seen Russell taking food down the bank for them the other day!!)
and --

I did not know that there was such a huge mansion near by--
this used to be hidden--before Irma--
they must of lost alot of trees to be able to see it so clearly now!!
and just before I left--
a couple more of my friends dropped by--
Never even heard them--for Blue Jays they were really quiet today!!!
It was a perfect day down there today--could of stayed there all day--
only--no bathroom!!!!

enjoy the moments, di

I HAVE BEEN LAZY--

I guess --
in not taking the camera out each day--
like I used to when I went to the dock each day--
but I grabbed the camera this morning just like I used to and headded out--
found these in Nancy's garden out back--



and on the trail I seen these--
which are really a bud-- yet--
but I like these like this cause when they open they are so skinny and not as pretty!!
and another mushroom--
and remember the huge one I showed you on that tree stump a while ago--
here is what it looked like today--
still kinda neat looking!!!

and this afternoon when I went to the bedroom window to look out--
I seen this flock of ducks--
at least I think they are some sort of duck--
largest group I have seen here in  a very long time!!!

****Don't forget to pay attention to nature--
there is so much to notice and enjoy out there--

SPOOKY---

I was sure--
that I spotted a bird fly unto this broken off tree--
Now doesn't that look like a bird sitting there on top of that stump???
well--
when I cropped the photo to see 'what' kind of bird it was--
I got this--
No bird--
but doesn't that look like an 'eye' and part of a face!!!!??????????????

Enjoy the moments, di
