~Her Journey Begins

 

For an adventurer at heart,

her journey begins,

free to explore,

and play among the stars.

When the time comes,

she will seek,

her special place,

and watch over us.

To our sweet, beautiful girl, it was our privilege to have you as a member of our pack. Love you forever and always. Only love so pure and deep can cause so much pain with loss.

Run, Kloudy.

Run, explore and play, cancer free.

~Hawk on Howard’s Antenna

Cold and snowy in Loveland, Colorado…

Current temperature, five degrees. Low tonight  -14. It snowed all day yesterday leaving us with about five inches of new snow.

While out shoveling the driveway, Howard spotted this beautiful Red-tailed Hawk sitting on his ham antenna.

I had just walked under the Hawk while clearing spots, in the back yard, to place bird seed. I didn’t see this beauty until Howard said, “Look at my antenna!”. I thought I was going to see broken wires when I looked up.

No wonder I didn’t see any birds anywhere in the yard, and haven’t for the last hour or so.

I think he is watching me.

Didn’t really seem to be bothered with me taking his photo from the driveway.

~A Bird Nest

The other day on my way into a restaurant, I noticed this lovely bird nest in a cherry tree. What bird constructed this nest? I hope it will still be there, after our winter snow and winds, for the next occupants.
