Bird Watching

The cooler weather has been incredible. I have taken advantage!

Yesterday, I sat outside for about 20mins watching a family of cardinals hanging out around the bird feeders in the backyard.

Cardinals are so so pretty! The male always wakes me up around 6AM singing his little heart out. Every single day I’m thinking, ‘How can you be so perky without caffeine?’. Really?!?

When I was sitting outside today, I saw a blue heron fly on by.

Take some time to enjoy the little things around you like the flowers and the birds.

My mom’s rose bushes have exploded. So beautiful! Wanted to share.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Until next time…

Go, enjoy the outdoors!

Happy May everyone!

Personally, I am not a ‘go for walk’ kind of person unless I am at the park with friends and/or family. I do love walking trails.

I am more than content to hang out in the backyard with the dogs.

As summer is approaching, I encourage you to enjoy the weather before it gets super hot outside (speaking as a Texan).

Until next time…

Spring is Nearly Here

I love winter! Mainly because in Texas it is the only time of the year that I can wear layers, cute sweaters, and scarves.

Spring is a fun season too! Bringing in flowers of all colors and birds of all kinds.

Today, I sat and watched as a handful of different species of birds (cardinals, woodpecker, and finches) ate and ate from the feeders in the backyard. It was so relaxing and entertaining to see all the different birds in action.

In times of uncertainty, it is an amazing reminder of what a creative and faithful God I serve.

(I tried to get a few pics with my Nikon, but the battery was completely dead. Oh,well!)

Until next time…

A Week Full of Blessings

This week has been a great week! Lots to celebrate!

I am enjoying my new job. The first three weeks have been all about acclimating to the new job. Learning about all the different aspects and responsibilities. This last week, I have been assigned to multiple projects. I am even getting to take part in a workshop this next week, which is a great way to learn more about the company!

Wednesdays are days I have started to look forward to the most! During lunch on Wednesdays, I get to fellowship with other women that are believers. This last Wednesday was a time to get to know one another while we planted herbs. (1st and 2nd pictures above) We got to choose from a variety of herbs. I picked lavender and rosemary.

Did you know that…

Lavender = Devotion

Rosemary = Remembrance

I knew flowers had different meanings, but I did not know that herbs had different meanings as well.

After Wednesday, I got inspired by planting these herbs. I decided that I wanted some greenery for my desk at work. Just a short trip to Hobby Lobby and I was able to get supplies to create a terrarium. (3rd pic) All the greenery is fake. I still think it livens up my desk. A couple of my coworkers made hilarious comments:

  1. I love young people. They do all the cool stuff.
  2. Are you moving in?

No, obviously I am not moving in at work. I have lots of stuff on my desk because it can be a great conversation starter. I want to be able to get to know the people where I am working.

Lastly, the bonus to working where I am is there is a Starbucks blocks from the office. When we had a cold front come through, of course I needed to go get a hot drink. (last pic) Lol!

Hope y’all are having a marvelous weekend!

Until next time…
