Friday Finish and Feathered Friends!

 I actually made time to finish a project. I received the new design from Kathy Schmitz's club and of course I wanted to do it right away. This is the first one, a house design in which you can change the bottom part, this one has the rabbit. I am making one more for my cat sitter so that is next.

I was also able to get out for a few days, loving the warmer spring weather. One day we went to a local beach. I get out for a walk and bird watching and Bill enjoys the views and the fresh air. And Bean gets to go too, he loves the beach.

Another fun thing was watching the Ospreys, this is one of my favorite, that I took. He was eating a fish and got a bone stuck in his throat, which made him gag and shake his whole body. This is how he looked when he was done shaking.

His mate was in the nest, screeching at him to bring some to her, but he was being greedy. She finally gave up and flew to the inlet to find her own dinner.

The next day we went to the island and I spent some time beach combing, while Bean played and had fun on the beach. 

I also got to enjoy some more birding.

And we spotted two nests that were occupied. 

And last but not least, we had a wonderful Easter Day with the boys. We had a hunt for the boys and they loved finding all the goodies that I hid for them. I hope you all had a wonderful week and a wonderful weekend ahead.

Poor osprey! His expression says a lot! "Pshew, glad that's over!" There were also a lot of pretty birds out. Perhaps cold weather is over early.

I love the photos Debbie! Those grandboys of yours are growing so much. We've got another spring snowstorm on the way for Monday and some cold temps. along with it - yuck! We keep hearing that moisture is needed but at this time of year I'd prefer it came as rain but Mom Nature never listens to me. Today we're off to the cabin with some bags of garden amendments to have and use when it warms up again. Take care. ^^

What a darling little pillow with a sweet design. I love all those bird pictures too, as they take me back to when I saw those same species. The boys are growing so fast. Glad you could have a bit of fun with them.
