I’m grateful for so much today: for sunshine, green growing things, a breakfast burrito for dinner; a meaningful zoom with a talented, compassionate writer friend whose book I can’t wait to see published; new glasses, Stellar doing a little better today, the fragrance of white irises, letting go of my need to control everything; half a dozen hummingbirds zipping around the feeder outside the living room window while the phoebes tag team feeding their chicklets right above the hummingbird fray, and a Bullock’s oriole pops in brightly for a moment… and the list goes on. I started the day participating in a meditation on an open heart, welcoming the richness in each moment of this life, and managed to carry that feeling through a busy morning and a productive afternoon, with moments of grounded relaxation throughout the day. I’m so grateful for the practice of mindfulness, and the joy and contentment it’s brought to my life.
This comment harks back to yesterday’s post concerning quail eggs. Here is one more thing you can do: Tanya picked up quail eggs from the same farm, put them in her egg hatcher thingy, and now has 9 lively quail chicks. Super cute 🙂
Too funny! I actually wondered about that, but mine had already been refrigerated.
P.S. About that Bullock’s oriole “darting in.” Don’t they, though! The girls set me up with grape jelly and a feeder, and Mr. Oriole spends about 1/10 second there. Guess who loves my grape jelly? The little finches clean it all up and lick the bottom of the glass!
