Love is.../Blue Monday

What a week! I could complain! I probably should complain! But lots has happened and I am just grateful for what is!
We missed the super moon but Saturday morning this beautiful sun came shining through a hole in the clouds. So I know God is still good and He is watching over this world.
We fell asleep Saturday night before catching the Super Moon. So here is a sweet share, how about a paper moon hanging in the window?
Nosey kitty. Mr. Kitty likes to be in a photo op! He wakes me each day with a loud "Meowwwwww." because he wants food and he wants it now! I am thinking of changing our bedroom colors to shades of orange but he is comfy here on my light turquoise and brown comforter set. We use the light fleece cover to catch all the pet hair and messes they send our way!  Especially litter trapped on their feet! Sigh!

The Margaret Carpenter Open Spaces has two bodies of water. This is the larger one. You can walk about one mile in distance around both and on the other side is the grassy fields where they play various sports like soccer and junior league football. Nick ran up here during high school. Lots of cool birds and critters like frogs and muskrats. Isn't the sky and water looking lovely in blue today?
This mean ole bird was eating all the fish and frogs on the shore, he would dive and never miss! He sits in the middle of the larger lake and commands everyone else. He is a supreme jerk and I was so angry that he ate all the frogs. Argh......
Mean ole bird and here is his friend, I call this egret Ego Bird:
He lets you get so close and flies away! He is another jerk! Lots of the little ducks and birds will just hang out these two are annoying.
This is yoga duck he is chilling on this rock enjoying the cool breeze. We walk one to two miles each weekend day. We use to walk every single day because we got up at five a.m. and enjoyed the quiet. Now it is getting harder to rise earlier. Both of us have super busy jobs and we need our rest! I am hoping we can go up to the rec center Thursday after work. The Nacho Men will be performing from 6:30 to 8:30. They are a unique band. They combine humor with dance music and lots of great costume changes as well as performing hits from the Swing era, the 50's, the 60's, Disco and beyond! I will hopefully be able to get close enough to the stage to take some photos. Please visit Sally and all the blues today!

Hi Anne,

I have to laugh at your being upset with the "mean ole bird." He's just being who God made him to be. I'd rather have fewer noisy frogs. Hey, why not send him to my place! LOL

Isn’t it fun finding blues to share? Thanks for playing today.

Happy Blue Monday!

I love the park where you go to walk, Anne! It is always nice to walk where there is water, as it is a pretty sight to look at.

I guess pelicans eat a lot, it's too bad about the poor frogs, I like frogs too. I always liked seeing egrets across the lake when I was a kid but never saw them up close. That looks like a fun place to walk, I don't have a lake or ocean close enough to walk at regularly.

The first communion photo was from the 1920's and it is my mother *the smaller girl) and her cousin Hedwig. The other photo is my mother. She was such a beauty!

Your photos of the pond are just beautiful. I love being near the water and watching the different birds. I've never found any frogs in or around my gardens, but they are cute.

I think we're about to get a little bit of rain soon. It's getting quite cloudy outside. That's good because we could use a little rain for the lawns and gardens.

I'm off now to go to breakfast with my family. You have a fabulous day. Hugs, Edna B.
