Thursday's Thoughts...

I was in the sunroom coloring today...I thought that I wanted to bake banana bread and a Key Lime pie with one of my bottles of Key Lime juice...but I realized that I really wasn't in the mood...

Den was absorbed in rearranging his study...the kitties were napping...our bed was stripped and we were washing our quilt so they were waiting for hot sheets. Every family member was engaged in their own pursuits...which was nice. Den and I will reconnect in a bit to binge watch some TV.

So...while I was coloring in the sunroom...I heard and saw a commotion outside. The yard was filled with vultures eating a huge dead fish from the pond...sad for the catfish...good for the vultures. Those are the vultures.

Geese swimming while the vultures are eating!

 

So while the vultures are snacking on the fish a golden eagle swoops down...the vultures storm away...the eagle tastes the fish...spits it out and flies away...apparently not a fan of sushi!

 

I go back to my very important coloring.

Can I just say that I have yet to color one entire page of anything? The cities book is Den's...it's a very masculine coloring book...he is still coloring his first page! The reason is this...he won't move to another page or another book until he finishes the page he started. His book is filled with teeny tiny little buildings...hundreds of them...but he will not budge...I have colored randomly in tons of coloring books and never finished a page...ever!

OMG! That must say something about my personality. Sigh! Plus I still think I need more pencils. Double sigh!

Back to books...

Still the same two...

But I am thinking of adding a third...a yummy fantasy! My only one book at a time rule has definitely fallen by the wayside...not only am I a random colorer but I am also a random reader...in a self imposed exile! Oh well...

 

Have a terrific Thursday!

Hugs,

Patty

  2. I love your sunroom, although the view of vultures swooping into the pond sounds a bit disturbing...lol.

    But...the circle of life and all.

    I am very eager to get The Widow of Wall Street.

    I wouldn't read too much into not finishing any of your pages of coloring. If it relaxes you, it has served its purpose.

    Enjoy!

    1. It is definitely more relaxing not to finish!

  3. What a collection of color pencils! I figure they must be from your teaching days?

  4. Oh my gosh, did the buzzards dive in and get the fish? I know that's the natural order of things but I don't like to see it.

    I've never finished a page in a coloring book either.

    1. Yes! There was nothing left of the fish! So...you are a random colorer, too!

  6. Cool! Great bird show. But, that was a juvenile Bald Eagle, probably two-the years old. He is probably looking to claim a territory, to nest. The adult plumage becomes dark with white at about fours years of age. Thanks for sharing! I love it.
