I had a wonderful present on Christmas Day, a female Yellow- Bellied Sapsucker stopped in for a visit! How cool!

My Climbing Aster started blooming about a week and a half ago. And what a sight to see! Not only does it flower like crazy, attracting all kinds of little pollinators, Asters are also a host plant for the Pearl Crescent and American Painted Lady caterpillars. A very cool plant, I think it might be my new favorite.

I've been having such a good time making oven mitts with this pattern from over at Skip to my Lou. It's a fairly simple project that you can complete in a couple hours (not that I did, cause I'm easily distracted by the comings and goings of the critters in the backyard). They make great Christmas gifts or you could make some for yourself to enjoy. I'm thinking a couple for myself would be nice since mine have seen better days.

The Beauty of Wood Storks
Last Saturday, while we were out running errands, it seemed like everywhere we went there were great birding opportunities. Don't you just love that? Now, if you ever met me in real life you would know that there's not much in the natural world that I don't go crazy over (except roaches, they make me flap my arms, run around in circles, and scream like a girl!) but Wood Storks are definitely a great love of mine. In the evenings we'll see them flying over and my heart just sings when I see them, their undersides painted with the golden colors of the setting sun. It's in those moments that I forget my daily struggles with Dystrophy and I just feel blessed to be alive, enjoying the great beauties of our wonderful planet.
And speaking of great beauties, eight years ago today we did the happy dance in the bathroom with a positive pregnancy test. :)

I found this tutorial from Colorfool a couple months ago. It's a simple project and the end result is just plain cute. I thought I'd gift them to the little girls in our family for Christmas (Elizabeth has already claimed the green one). The totes are roomy enough that they can take them to the library or use them to carry their special treasures in.
