Eagle Watching

Wow, I can hardly believe it's been a month since I posted here. I've just let time slip through my fingers, but it's been time well spent. It started with my son's school play approaching. I have my craft stuff all set up in the guest room and a few times a year, I need to pack everything up and allow the guest room to be used as a guest room, haha. I thought it was going to be so hard to have everything put away for over a week, but I so enjoyed the time spent with family visiting and my son did an amazing performance in his play. I just couldn't have been prouder of him.

Then for the last couple of weeks, I've just been enjoying my own family and the beautiful weather we've been having. We've gone for bike rides, walks, played lots of games, shared ice cream treats, told stories, watched movies. And the spring cleaning bug has hit me too. My husband and I went through our room and came out with 7 bags of clothes to be donated! Why were we hoarding stuff we weren't using for sooooo long! And what a liberating feeling! So now I've been going through the attic and giving away stuff from there. And I've even been going through my stacks and stacks of stamps and sharing sets with a couple teachers from my boys' school who are new to stamping. I have over 10 years worth of stuff with many old favorites just not seeing the light of day anymore. What joy to pass them on to new stampers!

Eagle Cam

And if you enjoy watching nature, here's an Eagle Cam link that my family has been checking a few times every day. There are two eaglets in the nest and we've seen them grow from tiny fluffy things to bigger fluffy things. {grin} They're moving around the nest a lot more now. We've seen both parents in the nest ripping up their catch and feeding the eaglets. One rainy day, it was touching to see my boys appreciate how the parent eagle sat over her babies and protected them while taking the brunt of the storm on herself.

Thanks for stopping by and listening to me ramble. I hope to start posting cards again this week and think I'll organize my first blog candy too as a way to celebrate my upcoming birthday. {wink}

Have a blessed day!

Way to go! I need to start going through clothes and books and toys and things again. I started on the kids' clothes this weekend. Maybe before you should make one more card before you give away those stamps! haha.
