Happy Thursday to you! Yesterday hubby was at the golf course and took these photos. If I'm not mistaken, these are Grey Heron's. I have never seen a nest of this bird before, so it was pretty exciting.

Hubby loves trying to get Pelicans landing or taking off and I think this is a great photo.

Yesterday I walked twice and received several mosquito bites(ugh), went to the pool with the grands and my girls, ran to Joann's to get some quilting supplies and finished drawing my design on the quilt top. Today, amidst other things, I hope to get the back pieced so I can begin sandwiching the quilt. I didn't sleep well last night, in fact was awake until about 1:30ish, so feeling a bit tired today. Kam and Lexie are coming over to walk this morning. It will be another hot day here and I'm hoping for some pool time. We do have a luncheon engagement with our financial planners, so that might interrupt the pool plans.
I hope you have a great day, remember to smile as it will make your day  better and someone else's.


  1. Since I'll be using a pieces back for the first time on my chevron quilt, do you have any pointers or tips on how to stitch through so many layers?

    Hope you can get in some pool time after lunch maybe?

    Love that picture of a heron's nest. I've only seen one just once. It was amazing.

  2. Wow, that is a great photo! It isn't as hot today, only 90. It might rain but if it does it will mess up our play date.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. It always amazes me to see such large shore birds in trees. Glad life is good there.

  4. That is an amazing shot!
    I would be so excited too.
    be careful with those mosquito bites they are really bad .
    they bit my baby and she got a low grade fever.
    They are HUGE too.

  5. Those long legged birds are beautiful!
    I hope the mosquito bites go away soon, and you will feel much better.

  6. I hope that you had a good day and that you are not so tired!

  7. So pretty. Don't stand under those big herons whatever you do

  8. Those are terrific photos! (I'm way behind reading the blogs - I'm so sorry! I've been overwhelmed by events.)
    The shot of the herons is especially interesting to me! From what I've read, the Grey Herons are a Eurasian species, though; they're extremely unusual in North America. I'm fairly certain what you have is an awesome shot of Great Blue Herons!
