Flapping Away


I've been busy swinging a one pound hammer, sawing, sanding, soldering and all the rest, I built a silver nest and added some pretty eggs in a variety of hues.



Yesterday I drove back to the refuge in Arizona with one on my girlfriends to see it in the rain and it did not disappoint. We had an absolutely perfect though LONG day. I knew she would love it and secretly we were hoping to get stuck in the mud so we could see of we could survive the night on a bag of tangerines and a chicken sandwich, a Starbucks, two bottles of water, as you can see we were okay on provisions but how much fun it would be to wake up there with the birds.

The ducks were really yucking it up in the pond, it made us laugh too, everything would go quiet then a group would burst out HAhaquackquack quack, a real knee slapper then quiet again then another group over there would do the same thing in a different tone....it was contagious ...


We did not get stuck but noticed a lot of raccoon activity.



Such beauty, so many things to do in a life, today my wings are tired but my heart is full.
I added my new cuffs to my etsy shop.

Happy day all! xo Robird

  9. "Such beauty, so many things to do in a life, today my wings are tired but my heart is full."

    THIS might be the quote to inspire my year!!

    Oh, I'm so thrilled for you--what a glorious way to spend the day, in the mud even--you're right, you see stories getting written that way, tracks everywhere. It WOULD have been awesome to stay!!

    The birds look like they were happy to see you both--performing for you like that...the final picture IS awesome!!

    Oh, what a January celebration!!!!!!
