That’s enough of those storage problems – my old IPad had 16 GB – my new IPad has 4 times that amount. Yippity Do Da!
And now for a trip to Lime Creek Nature Center.
It was bitterly cold yesterday but we were quite sure the building was open and it was. We asked the gentleman there if the thrush had been around and he assured us it was. He was the one who discovered the thrush a week ago and looked hard into various bird books to identify it. And the rest as they say is history.
Jo – if you’re reading this I wanted you to know we weren’t too discouraged to try again. And it was worth the wait! All I had was my IPhone so these pictures are not professional quality but our readers can see the bird and maybe recognize it if they see one themselves some day.
The gentleman said in the sunlight the bird simply glowed but it was a cloudy day yesterday.
The thrush has gotten accustomed to the feeders and the squirrels- last week it was very timid.
I have to give credit to my friend Ginny who told me about this bird sighting and Reed and I tried all week to get there. It was worth two trips!
There were multiple cardinals at the feeders at all times. This female posed for me.
We spent some time looking around the nature center. There were live snakes and turtles as well as the honeybee display case.
The wooden case on the wall is shown here opened up to view the honeybees.
The classroom has many nature books that can be checked out. There were also many display cases of taxidermy models. I have to admit taxidermy sort of bothers me.
The vaulted ceiling is home to many birds in flight and in nests and this is not a good picture but you’ll get the idea.
On our way home we celebrated our awesome afternoon with double dips in a waffle cone. Reed had anniversary cake and I had cow tippin’. So delicious! And as someone said, it’s never too cold for really good ice cream!
I’m working hard on Bonnie’s mystery four patches. They’re all sewn but now I have almost 300 of them to press – I only needed 240 but I got carried away. Haha!
Look at this box full of pressing ahead of me!
Here’s Hazel sitting on the edge of the pump organ stool staring at the drawer that has the balls in it and I’m trying to ignore her.
One last photo in the basement – this begonia is just beautiful right now.
Okay – I’ve experimented with photos and text and everything seems to be working on my end. One question – these pictures are sized differently – are they too big?
It’s almost the end of November and we have not met our goal this month on ad clicks – we would appreciate any help from any of you. You all thank me for writing this blog and by now I think I’d be lost without you girls so now with a new IPAD I’m good to go for quite awhile.
One more thing! This new IPad has a pencil so I can draw quilt blocks for you. In the past I’ve had to draw them and then take a picture of the drawing and then download the picture. Whoa! This will be so cool when I figure it out! I know you’ll love it, too.
Goodnight, Dear Readers! It’s been quite a day. Oh, I ordered new glasses, too! I can’t wait to throw away these glasses hanging around my neck!
