Meet The Neighbors

The best part of my day is laying out fruit for my new feathered friends. So many, so happy, so HUNGRY! So, how did you hear about this place? Bullies even in the natural world What? Do I have pulp on my beak? You should come back on Papaya day. But boy is it crowded.  Gratitude is the way to begin each day I told you to WAIT YOUR TURN!  Why can’t we all just get along? At least for the holidays....  

Open Doors #Badgecontest #Thursdaydoors

 I took this image awhile ago while visiting family in Louisiana. The doors were placed on the lawn of a church. It struck me as a beautiful statement of inclusion at that time and I feel even moreso now it speaks to the need for love and acceptance.  Happy Thursday everyone! Now go on over to  Dan’s Blog  to find more amazing doors and meet some very talented writers and wonderful people. 

Walking Views/Doors and More #ThursdayDoors

 Wow! Where did that week go? There is a misconception about being ‘retired in paradise’. There is actually work to living simply unless of course you are very wealthy and pay others to take care of everything for you. I see no fun in that, I suppose because I get great satisfaction in a job well done and work that actually improves my way of living rather than someone else’s. And still, here, we don’t have to keep up the property where this little home sits, so yard upkeep is out of the picture. My hubs certainly considers that a benefit of retirement and not owning your own place.  We do have to work at boundaries for those beautiful creatures that we share our planet with. They really like coming inside and well, I just don’t want to sleep with them. He is currently finding a weather stripping solution for the crevices that they always manage to slip through. I mean, this morning, this guy tried to steal my seat on the porch! πŸ˜±πŸ™ˆπŸ˜± What I see is that life should be about surviving

Hello Beautiful! #SoCS

 For today’s #SoCS  Linda Hill  says to write or talk about ‘list’ or ‘lists’. You wouldn’t think that to be a difficult task. We all make them...on paper, in our heads, on our phones, a chalkboard on the fridge...look here’s one already!  I could list my grandchildren...all eight!  I could list the things I am thankful for...too lengthy. Grocery list? Boring.  Things I hope to accomplish? Too evolutionary. about something beautiful? We have made new friends since moving here, some two legged, but none as lovely as my feathered friends. They are so happy when I leave a bit of fresh fruit and tolerate my camera..from a long as they don’t see me.  Now if you are expecting genus and species names for them all, well, you need to remember this isn’t  Dan’s place . He is the details guy and would surely research every single one of these beauties. Me? I have done so before using our tropical bird guide book, but alas, I did not bring it with me this time. I do kno

OutDoors #ThursdayDoors

 Yes, that does say OutDoors; but it does not mean out as in ‘In’ doors and ‘Out’ doors, although these doors can be used for going both in and out. My title is in reference to my very favorite place which is ‘outdoors’ and one might think there are no doors in Nature’s abode.  But...since the definition of a door is, by Wikipedia standards: ...a hinged or otherwise movable barrier that allows ingress into and egress from an enclosure.... A doors’s essential and primary purpose is to provide security by controlling access to the doorway (portal)  *( oooohhhh...have I got doorways coming up for you guys once my book is finished🀭) Conventionally, it is a panel that fits into the portal of a building, room or vehicle. Doors are generally made of a material suited to the door’s task. Doors are commonly attached by hinges, but can move by other means, such as slides or counterbalancing.  Thank you, Wikipedia. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Now, for those of you who know me, I need not reiterate that I am ne
