B&W Sunday Layers: Sushi-to-go

Paula’s B&W Sunday Challenge this week, asks for ‘Layers’.

The Osprey who flies over our lake, snagged himself a really good sushi breakfast which he took back to the layers of tall trees to finish off.  No sharing for him!

This is the beginning of a very busy and exciting week for hubby and I. I’ll pop in to visit you when I can. Hope your week is a good one.

My Sunday Photo: A Study In Turquoise

Yesterday,  Great Egret was looking for a lunch date with a fish or two, as he stealthily stalked his way along the water’s edge. Happily for me,  my camera was in its usual place on my bathroom windowsill.

This morning, I cooked hubby his first bacon and egg breakfast since we moved here. He said that it was worth all the effort of building the new kitchen. This coming week is going to be quite exciting as we’ve booked a removal company on Wednesday, to bring the rest of our furniture out of storage.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday.

The Boss is also back

Nice to see that Mr. GBH is back, presiding over his lake subjects. Who would argue with that beak? I read that the Great Blue Heron is the Native American symbol of strength, wisdom and patience. Looking at his elegant profile here, it doesn’t surprise me in the least.

Happy Thursday to you all. I’m taking time off today to have lunch with a couple of special girlfriends.

One Liner Wednesday: Ali Baba is back!

Imagine my delight yesterday afternoon, when pausing for a moment in my unpacking and repacking-for-charity frenzy, I looked out of the window and saw Ali Baba cruising by. He’s not as big as dear Mr. A, but I’m sure he’s still growing.

After all, what use is a stretch of water bordering one’s Florida property, if it doesn’t have at least one ‘gator? I shall give him instructions to guard our place whilst we’re away overseas.

Happy Wednesday to you all.

A Love Story Iggy Style

 

Said Iggy 1 to Iggy 2

“You know I really fancy you.”

“I’m not so sure that you’re the one,”

Said Iggy 2 to Iggy 1.

“There is no rush to find a mate,

My mom told me it’s best to wait.”

dscn9997

“Oh, you’re just green behind the ears”

Said Iggy 1 almost in tears.

“I’m going to sit up on my rock.

Your heartlessness leaves me in shock.”

dscn9983

“If you should change your mind, mon cher,

Just say the word and I’ll be there. “

Just a bit of fun in between unpacking boxes. Those Iggys are so entertaining to watch. Hope your Thursday is going well.

Macro Monday: Sweet Basil

The Sweet Basil plant is one of my favourite herbs, but in this case,  he’s one of my favourite Backyardigans. As far as I can tell, he’s still single, but yesterday I spotted a very tiny Basilisk Lizard in my lanai, so maybe Basil is a bit of a ‘dark horse’. 🙂

Happy Monday to you all. Hubby did a sterling job over the weekend, and the necessary amount of wood flooring is down.  I’m now waiting on tenterhooks for my piano to arrive. So exciting!

Feathers On Friday: Blue Flash

This Boat-tailed Grackle posed so nicely for his photo at our local nature reserve.

It’s been a very busy week here especially for hubby, who after finishing all the painting, except for the dining area which has all the wood flooring stacked up in it, immediately started putting the hardwood floor down right through the living area. Yesterday, he said that I could phone to see which day next week my piano could be delivered. The answer came back “Monday morning”, which was a bit sooner than we anticipated, so it’s all go this weekend to lay the floor  before they arrive. I’m so excited about being able to play again and serenade hubby whilst he’s finishing off the rest of the house.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend. Ours will be happy, but it won’t be at all relaxing.
