I've been working but I've also been going easy on myself this week, working at an easy pace, walking reading cleaning, catching up with the garden doing all those things that keep the cogs moving, you know how it is. The cooking, the grocery shopping, I gave Mart and Eric both a haircut, humans like it when I cut their hair so they can tell thieir friends they were quaffed by a dog groomer a status I can never seem to shake no matter how much art I make. I suppose we are all made up of piecemeal but hey isn't that also the thing that keeps it interesting...
When we visited the Sierra we saw an amazing sight at a high country lake, something I had not witnessed before. The beautiful gravely bottomed stream that fed the lake was alive with spawning trout, they were paired off and breeding while a pair of bald eagles with fat bellies screamed and flitted from tree top to tree top....a marvel!
Times like this really imbed in my soul and I think about the pristine beauty and the way the cycles of nature always make me feel more grounded.
Though trout filled, we did not fish but enjoyed the sweet display.
I made a "Trout Stream" because that's the kind of thing I like to do.

I gathered heron feathers from the forest floor and stuck them in my husband hat to keep them neat and from blowing away. I had to laugh when I saw Eric with his hat on, the feathers redistributed, oh well :)
I created the "Forest Floor" because that is another thing I like to do.
Gorgeous collector stones, Morrisonite with coral 2 1/2 in. dangle.

I hiked up to the nest site yesterday with my pal Jo to see what was happing in my absence...
Ohhhh BABY red tail, so cute and curious, wondering who the lady with the dog was.
I spent the rest of the day creating a nest builder..a little industrious bird just like me, like you, keeping things bolstered and moving forward.
I hope you have a good day all you bird girls, nest builders. I'm going to add these to etsy right now, that is I hope to, as long as the phone and doorbell cooperate.
Much love Ro
