Sunday Safari

The wind was a gentle breeze out of the southwest.
Temperatures rose in the afternoon to 50 degrees.

It was a lovely sunny December day to sit with the birds.
Seeing Flicker is always a delight.

We left the marigolds.
I did not know squirrels would eat the seeds.

I read while I sat with the birds.
I am catching up on my German fairy tales.

They can be very confusing.
As long as I have cocoa I do not mind.

I do enjoy good chocolate!
I need to maintain my good health.

I found my spirit animals many years ago.

I actually think they found me.

I was so surprised when I read this story.
I also have an Unicorn named Capricorn.
 She is one of my Spirit animals.
This is a charming little tale.
A good book, a cup of cocoa, a cookie or two
and I am in bliss.
 Capricorn often sits on my shoulder while I am writing.

Others poke their horns out here and there around my
December house.

Always I have Swans and Butterflies about.

Always they are nearby.
My favorite part of The Twelve Days of Christmas
is seven Swans a swimming.
 I like five golden rings too and two Turtle Doves.

Always Swans in my house and in my dreams.
Dragons and Dragonflies are Spirit Animals for me too
as are bees.

The Northern Cardinals
are more than a spirit animal for me.

The Cardinals are my companions.

I talk with them.
I share my concerns and joys.
I listen to them.
I learn from them.

Happy Sunday Safari.

This was a birdy kind of day here too. We drove north to see a Say's Phoebe and then drove south to see a Snowy Owl. Even with all that when I see Flickers my heart skips a beat. I love seeing this picture of it's tail feathers. They are so distinctive. Glad you had a birdy day too. Happy Sunday Safari.

I hope you know how much I love your perspective. The joy your blog brings me is so wonderful! I don't stop by as often as I should, but when I do I drinkit all in!

Thanks Sherry!
