Snow White To the Rescue

This little American Goldfinch flew into the window today
so off I went to rescue it. It looked
a little stunned but not too bad. As
I held it , it clung to my hand, then
flew off and hit the window again.

I picked it back up, pet it & talked softly
and just tried to warm it up by
cuddling it next to me.
After about
5 cheeped and flew out to land
amongst the trees of bright color.

Made my day to be so loving to a bird
and watch it fly off in perfect flight

God made me smile today!!

The Little Things In Life are a Blessing

Last of the Hydrangea , drying on the stems.

My Porcelain Berry Vine....look close at the blue color
They turn the best colors if the birds don't get them

Our view from the deck

Even the hostas are lovely

Our back yard view

My favorite view from the deck

It's the small things that make me glad to be alive.
The colors of the leaves..a soft breeze on a sunny day..seeing a bat
fly at dusk, speeding down the road with the radio blaring....
all the little things God gave us to enjoy ..

Stop and smell the leaves..the breeze and think how lucky we are
to be in this world ..enjoy your family and loved ones..they matter
most..LOVE is the greatest thing we have.

Here is me yesterday before Gamma Knife surgery to
remove more brain tumors. My 3rd fight with them.
Thats me on the left. TeeHee

A Perfect Autumn Day

A Bald Face Hornet's Nest, I only observed, didn't try to
get it down from the tree
The look like paper , the hornet's eat wood to make the nest.

I love this old shed.

Even the leaves on the roadside are a work of art.

It was a perfect day for a walk up the Singing Woods Road.
