Where Oh Where Is My Camera?

Two brilliant things to share and my camera needs to power up.
First, there is the return of three unusually marked birds. They were here last year and the expert at the bird store could not tell from my description what they are. I have a bird book to look them up and, i can't find their likeness. I'm thrilled they have decided to stop by again. I have special food out for them. Right now they are reluctant to stay very long because
I have new next door neighbors - the human kind. There's a lot of in and out activity, understandable in a move in. hey! The birds go in and out of the hole in the tree and they don't have a sofa to carry, so as the kids say, "It's all good."
BUT!!!!! The new neighbors (young, about to be married, with a basset hound) are FLAMINGO people. I'm totally in love with them already. The flamingos aren't pink plastic, like the classic models, they are white - maybe wire or something - but, it's more than enough to make my heart beat with joy.
Well, until next time (maybe I'll get the camera out there, yet.)

Spent a bit of time on this one. It's fun, isn't it?
Finally got the cat into the car
(something he does not enjoy in real life.)
The finch is so tiny, I wonder how many folk will find it.

Even though they seem so small, they don't think small.
At this very moment,
they are outside my window imploring me
to come fill the feeder with seed -
it's so low they can't get a decent meal.

That shared, I better go attend to my guests now -

"When he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers to sing to the Lord and praise Him in their holy [priestly] garments as they went out before the army, saying, Give thanks to the Lord, for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!"
(2 Chronicles 20:21, Amp)

I'm looking forward to a few things this month. It's terrific to have things to look forward to - or, towards . . . whatever.

If i used those icons that described the mood of the moment . . (Why don't I use those? I'll have to think about it . . . ) I'd have to say "Waif." Silly, isn't it? I wander around inside myself feeling a little lost. I laugh, remembering jokes my parents told, using the term "little orphan annie" - Ah, well. I like how the kids say,"WHATEVER." That's me at the moment.

I've read some blogs from Scotland this morning. Lovely, lovely things to read and they have plenty to say. How is it a performing artist could have plenty to say on a stage and be so quiet on the page, where it needs to be - as I'm not ON Stage lately - so, the work has changed, shifted, morphed.

I've got a homesick kind of thing going on. That's the goofy part because - well, duh . . homesick for where, what or who? See what I mean? silly.

So, I return to the "work" of the moment.
Singing Praise in my Highest Thinking (holy garments) - making a way for the others to do their work - I get it. Back to study, prayer and praise - and the where, what and who - most likely will be answered - or satisfied.

hi-de-ho from the restless one.
