Weekly bird in the hand

I've missed a couple of my "bird in the hand" posts I'm afraid as I've been away, back in England - so that means I have even more to be grateful for this week!  Here's this week's list of the things that I am grateful for:

  • being surrounded my like-minded people
  • having tender, sincere conversations with casual friends that takes the friendship to another level
  • sunshine and warmth - it got up to 79 degrees here this week
  • seeing the turtles in the pond, warming themselves on the duck platform
  • getting back into singing
  • being asked to participate in new things
  • new opportunities
  • the excitement of new ideas
  • meeting new people
  • enjoying the yellow of the daffodils
  • seeing all the blossom on the trees
  • seeing the brightest blue on a male bluebird as he flies around the vineyard with his Mrs.
It's like a week of new life with the flowers/blossoms, birds, turtles and new beginnings.  Has spring sprung in your heart yet?

Bird in the hand

Here is this week's things that I am grateful for - my "bird in the hand":

  • my birthday and all the lovely greetings I got from friends and family
  • a safe flight over to England
  • seeing family and my new granddaughter and grandson
  • having a warm coat, hat and gloves! It's freezing here and the snow has started today!
  • cuddles and feed-time with babies
  • seeing the ducks on a frozen lake
Hope you are staying cozy.
