Share the Joy: Blue Jays



A couple of days ago,
I hung a new block of high protein suet 
from a limb on the birch tree.

I got a good scolding from a Stellar Jay
who'd been sitting in a nearby tree.

"Get outa here," he screamed,
as I inched my way to the tree,
greasy block of fat and seeds in hand.

But a couple of minutes later,
three gorgeous, noisy jays were flitting from branch
to branch, and diving down for a snack.

Sheer joy --
except that they wouldn't sit still for a photo. 
So I had to settle for this photo (owner unknown)
from a bird identification site.


Other sources of joy?

Nashville's on tonight.
My new display cabinet and media center
were delivered today and look even better
than I anticipated.

The real estate market has picked up a bit
and I've had -- or will have -- three showings 
within a week by Saturday afternoon.
No offers yet,
but I'm keeping fingers crossed
and St. Joseph in the garden,
standing on his head.

Share the Joy: Superbowl Hype



Ok. I'll admit it.
I'm thrilled and overjoyed that my Seahawks squeaked out a win
and are headed to the Superbowl.

Woo hoo!

Share the Joy: A List



This week, there were lots of little moments of joy.

1.  Learning that 12 couples or families had toured my home in Sunday's open house.

2. The Seahawks beat the Saints, though honestly, they didn't play
 as well as they should have.

3. Mr. Purrsnickety is still doing well on his special diet -- no urine crystals!

4. I got Office Premium loaded on my new desktop, so I can go back to writing.

5. I discovered Stash Raspberry-Pomegranate green tea (yum!).

and

6. the pops of my favorite blue in this new Polyvore creation
 (I'm so happy to be back to playing with images again).

Share the Joy: Back to Basics



One of the things that gives me the most joy
is honoring my creative nature
by making art.





Art journaling,
digital art making,
playing on Polyvore,
you name it. 
It makes my heart sing.

Share the Joy: Happy New Year


Woo hoo -- it's a new year,
with plenty of promise.

I'm overjoyed to have a computer on my new desk
and being hooked up to the internet
in my new house
(no, the old one hasn't sold yet,
so I'm just visiting the new house)
and being able to Share the Joy with you.

And for the new year,
I'm hoping all the gears will mesh


and all your prayers will be answered.
