Bits And Bobs...

I walked in the house yesterday and glanced into the sunroom. This is what I saw!
A big blue heron was actually sitting on the deck railing and another one flew past him!
So close...the sunroom window was between us...if not I could have touched him...he seemed to be studying my little zebra finches inside.




I raced to get my camera but of course when I was ready, he was gone!
I can't imagine that he will ever do this again!
He has never done it before!
And in case Den doesn't believe me I have some blue feathers and big white puddles on the deck to prove it!
Reading this...English mystery thriller...starts off with different characters in different years which is always confusing until you get to know which characters are saying what...




Lucy got a hot rock massage yesterday! Not only did she love the massage...but she became very possessive of her hot river rock! My friend JoEllen showed me how to do it! That face seems to say...MY ROCK!








How is your Wednesday rolling?

  1. How magical that you got to see a Heron so close! I find I can never get to my camera in time when I am having special moments like that that I want to capture. I have never heard of a hot stone massage for a cat. I bet my cat, Billy, would love one!

  2. Wow, do you live close to water? We had a lot of white puddles on our deck yesterday but I figured they were from geese.

    That Lucy is one spoiled feline!!

    1. For some reason the heron comes to the pond and so do egrets!
      Who knew?

  3. Lucy lives better than about 80% of the population. You know this, right?

  6. That face on Lucy really does show how comfortable and content she is with that hot stone massage. So incredible, and something that I hsve not heard of for cats!
